The report says teams at Facebook and Instagram are working on a feature that will allow users to display their NFTs in their accounts. Users will also be able to mint and sell tokens. The efforts are at an early stage though and could yet change, the report says.
As iHodl earlier reported, Meta is aiming for "deep compatibility" with blockchain, crypto and NFTs as the company's CTO, Andrew Bosworth, advised to target a deep compatibility with the blockchain. Bosworth noted there are "not many places where I expect us to depend on it exclusively yet, but if we see an opportunity to work jointly with entrepreneurs in the web3 space I expect it will be worth the effort."
