What other companies integrate blockchain technologies? Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg previously announced that Instagram will have the ability to create NFT tokens. The exact date of implementation of the new functionality remains unknown.

The social network Twitter has already added the ability to set NFT as a profile picture. Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk criticized the integration of NFT into Twitter. In his opinion, the developers of the social network should deal with more important issues, such as creating tools to combat spambots and scammers.
