Many folks buy bluechip NFTs for the same reason they buy Gucci flip flops — to flex.
Sure bluechip NFTs have utility and Gucci flip flops protect your feet whilst letting them breathe, but that’s not why most people purchase them. Instead, the primary reason is social signaling.
Here’s what I mean:
- Owning a Lamborghini communicates that you’re successful (cheapest model costs $200k).
- Owning a CryptoPunk NFT communicates the exact same thing (cheapest NFT costs $106k).
NFTs are the next iteration of using ownership to communicate.
Over the last 16 months, I’ve been eyeballs deep in the NFT space — both as a collector and as a content creator. I’ve seen it all. I’m a certified NFT Flexologist. Yes, I just made that up. 😂 🤷♂️
Anyways, here’s the BEST way to show off your favorite NFT…
⭐️ Activate Twitter Blue and Turn Your Profile Picture into a Verifiable NFT.
In early 2021, Twitter rolled out an NFT profile display option.
It allows users to connect their wallets and showcase their favorite NFT as their profile picture (PFP). The display turns into a hexagonal logo — differentiated it from the non-NFT circle logos.
With crypto friendly, Elon Musk, at the helm, Twitter is likely to further blockchain integration on the platform.
In fact, just a few days ago Twitter announced that it’ll now let users buy, sell, and display NFTs directly through tweets. 🤯🤯🤯
Competing social media platforms have gotten into the NFT game as well:
- Instagram & Facebook released verifiable Digital Collectibles (NFTs); and
- Reddit released Collectible Avatars (NFTs).
Nevertheless, Twitter remains the platform of choice for most NFT Owners.
That’s why their verifiable PFPs are the BEST way to showcase your favorite NFT.
