Instagram posts that offer collectibles may come with an alert label named “Collectible” to put users on the lookout
Instagram is looking into non-fungible tokens. On Saturday, the CEO of Instagram, Adam Mosseri commented on the potential of NFTs and how it could make it a more accessible platform for more people.
In a recent Instagram Q&A, Mosseri said that he and the team are exploring new forms of digital tokens (NFTs) and how they can make them more accessible to the Instagram audience.
“I like to play the game because it’s fun and can give creators something to aspire to, maybe even learn a thing or two if they’re lucky,” added Mosseri.
Earlier this year, reports about the Instagram-owned photo-sharing app working on non-fungible tokens had circulated. Insta developer Alessandro Paluzzi had shared details about the possibility of their platform actually utilizing these tokens within their own application in July.
Instagram might put an icon or label on posts that are available to purchase as the company did not confirm these details.
