Mark Zuckerberg said Meta will add NFTs to Instagram, according to Engadget And the daily monster. He said that while he did not describe exactly what it would look like During a session at South By Southwest That “over the next several months, being able to bring in some of your NFTs, hopefully over time will be able to instrument things within that environment.”
There was a grumble that this was coming. Last year, Instagram led Adam Mosseri He said The team was “actively exploring NFTs” but had no actual announcements. In January, we I heard a report That the teams at Facebook and Instagram were working on NFT integration. The report stated that there has been progress in the features that allow you to use NFTs as a profile, NFTs on the platform, and discussions about creating a marketplace.
These first two features line up well with what Zuckerberg mentioned on stage, but it’s still not entirely clear what the NFT mink means on Instagram. Could you sell a popular publication like NFT, perhaps? Or the version of NFTs that act as passes to allow people to see specific stories? Meta hasn’t been mentioned yet, although it looks like the possibilities for minting won’t come until then. It seems that the idea of the market could go further, as it appears that it did not get a direct reference from Zuckerberg, although Huge rating for sites like OpenSea That would probably make it an attractive business venture.
Of course, there’s also a metaverse angle here, too. Zuckerberg has reportedly talked about minting your avatar’s clothes as an NFT and taking them “between your different places.” Zuckerberg I’ve talked about NFTs and the metaverse before, saying that it can be seen as part of the governance of the digital world. Now, he seems to think of them as digital things, something Posted by dead.
He noted on Tuesday that “a bunch of technical things that you need to work on before that will easily happen.” First, the Meta will have to make sure that the objects are well integrated across different platforms, which It’s not easy. You should also, you know, actually, build metaverse In order for that to happen in (which seems like a small technical hurdle).
Instagram won’t be the first major social network with NFT integration. Earlier this year, Twitter make an advantage It allows some users to set their own NFT as their profile picture. They then appear as hexagons, and anyone interested can click to see the NFT metadata. Looking at how often TikTok features are used The ultimate in carbon copy on Instagramit wouldn’t be surprising to see the sharing of Meta images (that is, “entertainment”The app does something similar.
