Last October, Disney partnered with Veve, a Gochain-based NFT marketplace, to promote Disney+'s streaming service with a collection of digital artifacts named "Golden Moments." On the OpenSea marketplace, Iger expressed his displeasure at "poached" NFTs.


When it comes to Disney's future foray into the metaverse, Iger predicts that regulating "toxic" conduct will be a major difficulty.


Walmart, YouTube, and Meta are just a few of the top firms looking into NFTs and Web3.
