Instagram is adding NFTs promptly — tells Mark Zuckerberg

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced that non-fungible tokens (NFTs) will be entering Instagram soon.

Addressing a session at the South by Southwest event late Tuesday, Zuckerberg explained that “over the following various months, the capacity to bring some of your NFTs, hopefully over time to be prepared to adapt to that environment,” Zuckerberg said.

Meta’s CEO said that “a bunch of technical things that want to be worked out before it will be seamless to happen.”

“We are working on carrying NFTs to Instagram shortly,” the Meta founder explained at the conference.

Instagram head Adam Mosseri recently said that the team is “actively examining NFTs” but didn’t know much about it.

Making a strong bet on India’s creator and developer community, Zuckerberg recently said that as the social network starts the initial steps to build augmented reality (AR)-powered metaverse experiences for billions, the country and its talent will be a huge pool that is going to be a large portion of that journey.

Speaking at the company’s ‘Fuel for India’ event, Zuckerberg said he is excited about India’s role in building the future of the Metaverse, which is getting on to be the successor to the mobile Internet.

Earlier this year, Twitter inaugurated a feature that let some users establish an NFT as their profile picture.
