Linktree announces New NFT Features on its Platform
The link-in-bio platform Linktree has disclosed new features. The firm is trying to include NFTs into its service, which would enable creators to promote their NFTs and “create a community around ownership,” among other things. The firm claims that with this new launch, creators will be able to monetise their work and build a digital identity with new tools. OpenSea, an NFT marketplace, helped design the additional features.
Through the company’s new “NFT Gallery” link function, users may show off their NFTs to their Linktree friends and colleagues. An OpenSea collection URL may be used to produce a preview, and Metamask wallets may be linked so that the collection’s owners can be verified. Users may also link their Metamask wallets and show up to six NFTs they hold on their Linktree by selecting the NFTs in their respective wallets. The available NFTs may then be seen and purchased using OpenSea.
How to Spot Verified NFTs
Creators may also use their NFTs as their profile photos or backgrounds on their Linktree when they link their wallets. NFTs validated will be presented in a hexagonal frame to help them stand out as profile photographs, which is the same strategy that Twitter chose with its NFT profile pictures. Backgrounds will get a verification badge at the bottom of the creator’s Linktree. Afterward, users may use Linktree to learn more about the NFT. The startup states that it’s employing OpenSea and Metamask to power verification.
Using the new NFT lock functionality from Linktree, creators may secure their connections with a smart contract address. In addition, to establish ownership, only users who have NFTs from a specific collection may connect their wallets and open the connection. The company believes this functionality helps creators to make the sharing of rewards simpler.

Linktree Hopes to Assist Creators Tap into Web 3.0
Linktree CEO Alex Zaccaria stated, “With this launch, Linktree gives powerful tools to assist creators in the Web3 area. “This provides value by expanding the basic use of NFTs — confirmed ownership, monetization, and community. In addition, as the number of creators tapping into web3 develops, the company offers these creators the tools they need to show their NFTs everywhere they have their Linktree connection and to provide special incentives to their community.”
The incorporation of NFTs onto the platforms of a number of the world’s most influential digital firms is now under consideration. Yesterday, Spotify made public its plans to test a new feature that gives artists the ability to promote their own NFTs directly on their profiles. In addition, Instagram said the previous week that it will begin testing NFTs with a select set of American creators.
The company’s interest in NFTs is understandable in light of these recent advancements. In March, the company secured $110 million in an all-equity deal that culminated in today’s announcement. The financing increased the company’s worth to a stunning $1.3 billion.
According to Linktree, which states that it has 1.2 billion unique users each month, there were 90 million visits to streaming services in 2021. According to the company, its platform is used by more than 24 million producers, artists, and businesses all around the world. Some of these creators include the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association, Shawn Mendes, HBO, and Selena Gomez.
