Samsung has, in its own way, validated the crypto space by announcing new features that will be part of its next line of smart TVs. The South Korean tech giant has unveiled a new “NFT aggregation platform” which will debut with its latest Smart TV models at CES 2022. The feature will allow people to browse NFTs for sale and even check out buy them through the TV. NFTs or non-fungible tokens are digital collectibles based on movies, games or artwork, transferred and locked over a blockchain network.
The NFT aggregation platform will grab NFTs from multiple markets on Samsung smart TVs, according to the company. Users will be allowed to preview these NFTs as well as learn more about its creator and the story behind the coins.
People who already own NFTs will be allowed to present their holdings on Samsung TVs.
“In 2022, Samsung introduces the world’s first on-screen TV-NFT market explorer and aggregator, a revolutionary platform that lets you browse, buy and display your favorite works of art, all at the same place. The platform is also ideal for NFT creators who wish to share their art with the world, ”Samsung would have said in a statement.
The feature will be available on Samsung smart tv deals MicroLed, Neo QLED and The Frame models.
The company made the announcement ahead of the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to be held in Las Vegas starting Wednesday, Jan.5 in the United States. Due to the spread of Omicron, however, several tech majors like Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and Lenovo will not be physically attending CES 2022.
While Samsung has announced the integration of NFT-compatible settings with its products, Twitter is also reportedly working on a tab called “Collectible” which will allow users to show off their NFT collections and holdings on the microblogging platform.
In the third quarter of 2021, NFT’s sales volume reached $ 10.7 billion (roughly Rs 79,820 crore), more than eight times over the previous quarter, according to data from market tracker DappRadar.
Soaring sales and high NFT prices have baffled many, but the multiple growth shows little to no depreciation.
