Soon, customers of Samsung’s new smart TVs will be able to browse, buy and sell irreplaceable tokens (NFT) directly from the comfort of their couches.
According to an Notice Announced today by South Korean multinational corporation Samsung Electronics, the company’s new series of smart TVs – MICRO LED, Neo QLED and The Frame – will have an integrated NFT platform from the start.
“NFT Platform: This app features an intuitive, integrated platform for discovering, buying and trading digital artwork through MICRO LEDs, Neo QLEDs and The Frame,” Samsung revealed.
So far, however, it is not entirely clear how this new platform will work and which (if any) NFT markets – OpenSea or Rarible, for example – will integrate.
Mainstream adoption is coming
Samsung’s latest announcement comes amid ongoing efforts to adopt NFT made by some other mainstream companies. Recently, sports equipment giant Nike announced the acquisition of RTFKT Studios, “a leading brand that uses cutting-edge innovations to deliver next-generation collectibles that combine culture and games.”
On December 29, Ferrari also signed a contract with Swiss Blockchain company Velas to create NFT for its fans.
Scuderia Ferrari is pleased to announce that from next season it will be able to count on a new Premium partner – Velas Network AG.

However, not everyone is happy with the increasing speed with which NFTs are penetrating other industries, and players are perhaps the loudest group in this regard.
In early December, major video game publisher Ubisoft unveiled Quartz, the company’s new platform that will allow players to earn, collect and trade NFTs in so-called digits – and was condemned for it.
Yesterday, the well-known “crypto Twitter” personality Cobie he also raised this topic, arguing that “the anger of players over the inclusion of NFT is an astronomical unconscious voice against their own interests” – and experienced first-hand what it is like to be Ubisoft.
