Twitter’s recent update will not go unnoticed in the blockchain community, among fans of bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies. Indeed, the social network intends to grant its 210 million active users the possibility of using their NFT as a profile picture.
Context of project insertion
After a succession of (re) confinements, Covid-19 obliges, non-fungible tokens quickly put themselves in the spotlight. More and more fans have flocked to the NFTs, especially in this year 2021.
Greedy and engaged users flocked to them. New entrants to the crypto sector have also followed suit, given its avant-garde character and the profits that can result from it.
Meanwhile, the historic sale of Beeple’s NFT artwork “Everydays – The First 5000 Days” for $ 68 million has shaken things up. Just on Twitter alone, the use of gifs, jpgs and pixelated images as profile pictures was becoming more and more common. The goal is to imitate the NFTs.
Very skilled in its field, Twitter has launched the green light for the implementation of new NFT features.
The video shared by Mada Aflak, chief engineer of the American company, says a lot about this innovation.
This switch can be done as follows:
– click the button “Edit the photo”;
– choose the “Select an NFT” function by connecting your favorite wallet to your Twitter account;
– select the NFT profile photos and expect something certifying that it has been verified to appear on them.
Note that it is possible for any user to collect other NFTs by choosing the “Collectibles” menu. Which will certainly be the subject of reactions from other users interested in your collection.
Having not yet announced a date for the launch of this feature, Twitter seems to wink at the promoters of the NFT by this initiative. Its some 200 million users will quickly appropriate it in the future.
What Twitter intends to achieve is a real boon for the crypto sphere since the social network does not suffer from any visibility problem. Interested parties will only have to watch the demo video carefully to better understand the new features concerning their profile picture.
The blockchain and crypto revolution is underway! And the day when the impacts will be felt on the most vulnerable economy in this world, against all hope, I will say that I was there for something
