As promised, NFTs are coming to IG soon. The app will start testing a way for users to display non-fungible token on their profiles, according to Mark Zuckerberg.

We are starting to build for NFTs, not just in our metaverse and Reality Labs work, but also across our family of apps.

A similar feature is coming to Facebook in the near future, and Meta is considering enabling NFTs in its other apps. There is a way for people to show 3D NFTs using augmented reality. This feature would allow users to place digital art in physical spaces.

There were rumors over the weekend that suggested that non-fungible token would be tested in the app this week. Meta would allow integrations with NFTs.

NFTs on Instagram 🎉This week we’re beginning to test digital collectibles with a handful of US creators and collectors who will be able to share NFTs on Instagram. There will be no fees associated with posting or sharing a digital collectible on IG.

See you next week! ✌🏼

Adam Mosseri spoke about how the NFT integrations will work. Users will be able to share their NFTs in their feed, Stories and messages. A limited number of people in the US will have access to these features.

Mosseri said that they want to make sure that they can learn from the community.

Mosseri said that users won't need to pay any fees associated with posting or sharing a digital collectible. He suggested that NFTs could be used to provide a way for a group of creators to earn a living on the platform. Users will be able to buy and sell on the photo sharing site at some point. The creators may eventually be able to mint NFTs in the app. Meta has been contacted by Engadget.

I would hope that you know that the clothing that your character is wearing in the metaverse can be.
