Snapchat will test turning NFTs into AR lenses
The feature will be tested next month, as was previously mentioned. A select group of producers will be allowed by the firm to produce NFTs, mint them on another platform, and then turn them into Snapchat Lenses. The article also notes that Snapchat, a platform for exchanging photographs and videos, has no plans to charge users for the ability to display their digital collectibles there.
Additionally, it is working on ways for creators to make money off of their digital collections. However, at this time, neither the procedure nor the phases that make up the process are known. In the past, NFT support has been added by sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram so that users can display their digital possessions there. Over the next few days, when it runs testing and gathers the necessary feedback, more information about the functionality should become available.
