Non-Fungible tokens conquer Instagram, the word from Adam Mosseri
According to reports, it seems that Instagram is actively exploring the Non-Fungible Token sector, making them more accessible through its social.
The Chief, Adam Mosseri, in response to a Q&A on its Stories, reportedly said the following:
“Nothing to announce yet, but we’re definitely actively exploring NFTs and how we can make them more accessible to a wider audience. [..]I think it’s an interesting place for us to play and also a way to help creators.”
This could mean that Instagram posts that offer NFTs can be published with a label called “collectible” to alert users that it’s a purchased NFT.
