Spotify launches into the world of NFTs. For now, the tests only concern the United States.
The positioning of NFTs on the world market as a new digital art form continues.
It is these days news that Spotify, the well-known music streaming platform, is testing in the USA a way to exhibit NFT collections of the likes of Steve Aoki and The Wombats.
“Spotify is conducting a test where it will help a small group of artists promote their third-party NFT offerings through their artist profiles,” a Spotify spokesperson said during a press review.
NFT and Spotify: how does it work?
The test works in this way: once the Spotify app is updated, by opening the artist’s page, you will find the NFT gallery under the artist header and the music tracks.
Clicking on it expands the view of the collection of NFTs and, when selecting an NFT, you will see an enlarged version of it, as well as a brief description of it.
In addition, you have the option of purchasing these NF Ts with a link to the OpenSea digital shop.
This test currently only includes Android CC users in the United States
Despite a drastic drop in sales (almost 92% less!), that of NFTs is certainly a trend that affects many companies, so much so that even Mark Zuckerberg, after having already launched his Metaverse “Horizon”, recently opened the possibility to see integrated NFTs on Facebook and Instagram soon.
NFT and Photoshop: Adobe launches Content Credentials
Adobe launches the Beta version of Content Credentials , a system integrated into Photoshop that can “certify” the identity of an NFT creator .
Content Credentials is a feature under development in Adobe Photoshop capable of collecting information about the modifications, activities and attributions associated with a content during its creation. During the export this data history is captured as a “proof of authenticity” of the digital content and the creators of the digital content in question can use it as a “certificate of authenticity” attachment.
To develop it Adobe Photoshop has established partnerships with some of the leading NFT platforms such as:
- Known Origin
- Super Rare
NFT sellers will therefore be able to link the Adobe ID with their wallet , thus allowing compatible NFT marketplaces to display a sort of “verified certificate” proving the authenticity of the source of the digital artwork .
Adobe Chief Product Officer Scott Belsky says this functionality will be built into Photoshop with a “prepare as NFT”-like option.
It also states that the attribution data created by the NFTs will be on an InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) , which is a decentralized way of managing files, where a network of people are responsible for keeping the data secure and available, rather than a single company (similar to how torrent systems work).
According to Adobe, NFT marketplaces such as OpenSea, Rarible, KnownOrigin and SuperRare will be able to integrate with Content Credentials to display Adobe attribution information.
We all know that scammers are unfortunately always around the corner, even in the NFT world!
Samsung enters the NFT market
Samsung is planning broad support for NFTs , the now well-known Non-Fungible Tokens.
Samsung intends to develop a platform that will allow digital art creators to easily share and disseminate their works with the rest of the world. At the same time it will allow potential buyers to discover and preview an NFT before buying it or to learn about the history of an NFT by reading its metadata.
The company will do all this by taking advantage of its new range of smart TVs introduced in the market:
- New Qled
- and The Frame
New Samsung NFT Aggregation Platform
Samsung is also introducing the first “NFT Explorer Browser” i.e. the platform called Nft Aggregation Platform .
The platform allows you to browse, buy and view digital art (and not only) directly from your TV, perhaps comfortably seated on the sofa .
An intelligent calibration feature on the televisions will automatically adjust the display settings so that, for example, when you have guests over you can show NFTs directly on your television .
An increasingly innovative and attractive way to show art .
You no longer need to keep your head down on your smartphone or laptop to admire or buy and sell NFTs!
Screens capable of displaying NFTs could also be used to set up exhibitions or as part of home furnishings .
“With the demand for NFTs on the rise, the need for a solution to today’s fragmented viewing and buying landscape has never been greater,” the company said in a press release.
