Easily share your NFTs with a QR code

One thing that is absolutely true for NFTs, “if you have them, try them”.

After spending millions, seeing a few dollars on NFT art, and building an NFT collection, it’s only natural that you want to display it where everyone can see it. In fact, there are several clever and creative ways to display your NFTs beyond virtual worlds. Unlike traditional physical art such as paintings and sculptures that can simply be framed and stored, displaying NFT art is more delicate. It must show its authenticity, preserve the various determinants and give the true feel of digital art (be it video, audio or other types of art) while putting them on stage. If you want to make it more durable, you can choose aluminum sheets. SolidNFT is one such platform that provides a solution. Through a process called sublimation, the NFT is printed on the foil with an authentication panel on the back containing all transaction and ownership information.

OnCyber, an online art space, allows users to display their crypto art and create their own shows. For this, users need to connect their blockchain wallets. Other similar platforms include names like Showtime, which is the “Instagram” of NFTs, and Lazy. Premium and verified Twitter accounts have the privilege to upload NFTs as profile pictures, and Meta will soon also bring a feature to showcase and sell NFTs on Instagram.

But you might also want to share them with your audience. And to do this you have to go to your digital wallet like Metamask and get the sharable link to your NFT which is still tedious to this day as you have to go to Etherscan which stores all your transactions to copy it to metamask ! Crypto art can easily be introduced into the digital universe and also appear in the metaverse, plus some have used the QR code!

The QR code therefore has a card to play to direct and point towards the NFTs! The history of QR codes has been going on for 26 years. But by the way, since when can we use them? And why do? Why did the premium ecosystem never start? How about today? Why is the use of QR codes so widespread in Asia? To listen to the answers, simply listen to the 135 gram podcast on the QR code.

Some brilliant developers have made an action to sell a NFT on Solana with a QR code, we should see good initiatives on the various platforms in the coming months…
