NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are now heading to Instagram, following Twitter. NFTs from the Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, and Flow blockchains will be supported shortly on the platform.

According to CoinDesk, Meta, the parent company of Instagram, is working on non-fungible token (NFT) interfaces with Ethereum, Polygon, Solana, and Flow.

Surprisingly, these blockchain networks handle the majority of NFT digital collectibles transactions, with Ethereum and its Bored Apes Yacht Club dominating in terms of market capitalization.

A limited group of NFT aficionados from the United States will participate in the pilot program. Instagram also intends to support popular bitcoin wallets like MetaMask.

By plugging in their wallets, users will be able to verify ownership of their NFTs, show them on their profiles, and tag the creators who created them.

Instagram, unlike Twitter, will not charge users for uploading and sharing non-fungible tokens. The hexagonal NFT profile photos on Twitter’s microblogging platform were initially free.

NFTs will gain cultural prominence as a result of this new choice. Instagram, which has over a billion monthly active users, is where many artists showcase and sell their work.

As previously reported by Business Today, Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive officer of Meta, gave a basic overview of the program at SXSW in March without offering specifics.

NFTs are ownership certificates that are linked to real-world or digital things and issued on the blockchain. They’ve grown increasingly popular in recent years, with numerous digital artifacts fetching millions of dollars. In order to engage with followers, several celebrities have started minting their own NFTs.
