Meta Opens NFT Sharing on Instagram and Facebook to All Users
Non-fungible tokens (NFT) have finally arrived on Instagram after parent company Meta announced Thursday the long-awaited arrival of its digital collectible feature to its billions of users.
NFT functionality on Instagram has been in testing since May, but on Thursday it became available to every user.
Users can connect wallets from Coinbase, Dapper Labs, MetaMask, Rainbow and Trust to Instagram. Instagram users can also crosspost their NFTs to their Facebook accounts, according to a blog post.
“Today we’re announcing everyone on Facebook and Instagram in the U.S. can now connect their wallets and share their digital collectibles,” Meta said in the post. “Additionally, everyone in the 100 countries where digital collectibles are available on Instagram can now access the feature.”
The announcement comes on the heels of the company’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, selling an NFT of his childhood baseball card for $105,000.
