Samsung Joins the NFT Movement, Integrates Digital Arts Into New Smart TV Series


Follow us


The buzz around the non-fungible token sector has finally caught up with the electronics giant Samsung. On Monday, the Korean-based company announced its plans to integrate a first-of-its-kind “NFT Aggregation Platform” on its smart TVs. And that is expected to begin this year.

Samsung Reveals NFT Integration Details

In the January 3 announcement, the electronics giant highlighted the features of the intended integration in details. While stating that the NFT integration will be available on its Neo QLED, MicroLed, and The Frame models, Samsung also confirms that users will be able to buy NFTs directly from their TV sets.

Meanwhile, the NFT Aggregation Platform will also permit customers access to view their digital collections. But as the name implies, the platform will be gathering various data from various marketplaces. And with that, it will offer users information about artworks, including what blockchain network they use, and who created it.

In short, NFT owners can now display their digital wealth using the new platform by Samsung. And all thanks to “Smart Calibration” technology, the settings of smart TVs can easily be adjusted to ensure that images are viewable on TVs.

The NFT Big Boom

Celebrities and world-renowned brands delved massively into the NFT sector in 2021, bringing about an unimaginable growth in the sector. However, 2022 might be showing signs of continuing in that same trend already.

Possibly to get them more deeply connected to their fans, many artistes, politicians, sports athletes, business moguls, and virtually everyone started to jump on the NFT train.

Global businesses have also been foraying into the sector. Back in October 2020, Visa’s partner Wallester paid no less than 3.05 ETH to acquire its first 33 NFTs known as ‘Astro Bulls’.

Even before that, Visa itself had paid around $150,000 to acquire the Crypto Punks collection.
