What is known about the new feature? The social media first began testing this feature in July 2022. To post an NFT, users need to connect their accounts to a digital wallet. It is noted that there will be no fee for posting tokens. The platform also supports Ethereum and Polygon blockchains, MetaMask, Trust Wallet, and Rainbow wallets.

“Every day, creators inspire people and push culture forward around the world. With the incredible opportunity of blockchain technology, they can now leverage new tools to earn income, and fans can support their favorite creators by purchasing digital collectibles – art, images, and videos, music or trading cards – as non-fungible tokens (NFTs),” the Instagram announcement says.

In April, Meta began testing the marketplace for its own metaverse Horizon Worlds. Through it, users can sell and buy in-game items and assets. A bonus program will be created for item creators, with monthly payments expected.
