Apple making moves in the near future trading space
New York City: Apple is the most recent platform to support non-fungible tokens and cryptocurrencies. Apple, one of the greatest technology corporations in the world, has began enabling applications for the purchase and selling of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to be advertised, installed, and sold via its App Store, which now has more than one billion users. This change took effect in September 2022.
This new turn of events follows closely on the heels of the Ethereum Merge, which was the process by which the Ethereum blockchain, which is the blockchain that is used the most frequently for NFTs, transitioned from a “proof of work” consensus mechanism to a “proof of stake” model that is more friendly to the environment. Additionally, it follows a succession of announcements linked to NFT made by other significant platforms and technology businesses, including the following:
Verification using NFT is now available for profile images on Twitter (“PFPs”)
NFT avatars are being made available on Reddit.
TikTok will be producing NFT collections that are creator-led.
Users on Facebook and Instagram will be able to share their NFTs and digital treasures thanks to Meta’s new feature.
Apple’s entry into the realm of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) may be a catalyst for onboarding millions of people to blockchain technology, despite the fact that the company has been criticized for taking a cut of 15–30% of in-app sales of NFTs. As more significant platforms continue to adopt this innovative technology, the number of use cases for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) will continue to expand, as will their popularity.
