Given the predicted success of NFTs in 2021, it’s not surprising that Samsung has launched a “NFT Aggregation Platform” for its smart TVs.
Colin Wu, a Chinese crypto journalist, published an Engadget piece on Twitter. Samsung, located in South Korea, is said to be releasing an “NFT Aggregation Platform” for smart TVs.
The platform will be available on Samsung’s MicroLed, Neo QLED, and The Frame models. The program gathers NFTs from different markets so consumers may see art and discover pertinent metadata such as who developed it.
NFT collectors may also utilize the site to display their collections. Samsung claims its “Smart Calibration” technology can automatically adapt the TV’s settings to meet the original creator’s requirements.

Samsung joins the NFT market
The new platform will be available on the MicroLed, Neo QLED, and The Frame smart TV models. Users will be able to browse and purchase non-fungible tokens with these. The “NFT Aggregation Platform” allows Samsung consumers to preview NFTs from several digital markets, as well as see author names, DLT metadata, and other information.
NFT owners may utilize Samsung’s new platform to flaunt their digital wealth. Smart TVs can modify the settings to get the image rendered on TVs thanks to “Smart Calibration” technology.
Other global corporate behemoths are also dabbling in the NFT market. Wallester, a Visa partner, spent 3.05 ETH in October 2020 for its first batch of 33 NFTs, dubbed “Astro Bulls.” Prior to it, Visa had purchased the Crypto Punks collection for $150,000.
Elon Musk teases sceptics of the NFT
Elon Musk, the billionaire and Tesla CEO, mocked people who are wary of the non-fungible token market in a series of tweets last month. Keanu Reeves, the hero of the original Matrix trilogy and the recently released film, is one of these critics, believing that NFTs are “so readily copied” and that they are essentially a joke.
Musk uploaded a meme of a patient chatting to his psychiatrist, with the latter inquiring if “these fictitious NFTs are with us in the room now” in one of his tweets.
Musk ridiculed individuals who are dubious of NFTs in the music business in particular in a recent tweet. He shared a cover of Gorillaz’s album from 2005. As a reminder, a number of performers have already jumped on the NFT bandwagon, releasing whole albums and songs as NFTs. Musk’s ex-girlfriend Grimes, rapper Tony Lanez, Kings of Leon, Ozzy Osbourne, and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top are among them.
