NFTs will be on Instagram soon, according to Mark Zuckerberg
Mark Zuckerberg said that Meta would add NFTs to Instagram, according to Engadget and The Daily Beast. While he didn’t describe exactly what that would look like, he said during a session at South By Southwest that “over the next several months, the ability to bring some of your NFTs in, hopefully over time be able to mint things within that environment.”
There have been rumblings that this was coming. Last year, Instagram lead Adam Mosseri said the team was “actively exploring NFTs” but didn’t have any actual announcements. In January, we heard a report that teams at Facebook and Instagram were working on NFT integrations. The report mentioned that there was progress on features to let you use an NFT as a profile and mint NFTs on the platform and discussions around creating a marketplace.
