Facebook announces the NFT feature for a limited number of US citizens

Just a week after CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the concept, Meta has begun rolling out a non-fungible token (NFT) functionality on Facebook.

The functionality will first be available to a limited number of US-based producers, similar to how the firm launched NFTs on Instagram a month ago.

In a Facebook post announcing the move, Zuckerberg stated that the firm is investigating augmented reality NFTs and 3D NFTs utilizing the company's Spark AR software platform.

Meta product manager Navdeep Singh also revealed the news on Twitter on Wednesday.

According to Singh's screenshots, Facebook NFTs would appear on a user's profile under a 'digital collectibles' page.

NFTs on Instagram are supported by the Ethereum and Polygon blockchains, with Solana and Flow support coming soon.

Rainbow, MetaMask, and Trust Wallet are among the third-party wallets that work with Instagram, with Coinbase, Dapper, and Phantom on the way.

According to a Facebook representative, there is no timetable for when this will be more widely available to users.
