Meta chooses Polygon for minting digital collectables


  • Meta has selected Polygon to mint digital collectables.
  • Meta is empowering creators to mint & sell NFTs on Instagram.
  • Creators will get to use digital collectibles to engage directly and monetize.

For the first time ever in NFT history, Meta is empowering all the creators and digital builders to mint & sell Polygon-powered digital collectibles on Instagram. They have similar plans and strategies for selling outside of Instagram. 

This will particularly enable creators to use their unique digital collectibles to engage with their fans directly and further monetize their digital assets on Instagram and outside. 

Instagram is one of the most widely used social media platforms and has millions of users worldwide with the numbers increasing even as we speak. 50 million people across the globe will now get to showcase their creations, benefitting from this new situation or arrangement. 

Meta has always backed the community of creators with innovative tools and it will further enable features to these digital artists to shape and thrive in the crypto-based digital world. 

Polygon will be providing a great infrastructure for Meta to launch this one-of-a-kind tool.

Meta is also planning to gift these creators with an end-to-end toolkit to smoothen the onboarding process.

They are currently testing out these features with creators in the US (small group) and then they will be expanding to more countries.

The CEO of Polygon @sandeeonailwal stated that the value added to the creator economy is unparalleled and the verifiable digital ownership on a platform with such reach will help us further our goal of onboarding the next millions to billions of users to Web3.
