Twitter Launches NFT Profile Picture Verification
Jack Dorsey out, NFTs in. Twitter indirectly took a stance against its former CEO’s “Bitcoin-only” mindset today, announcing a verification system for users to showcase NFTs as their profile pictures.
For months, Twitter users have been clamoring for a feature to prove ownership of the NFTs people use as profile pictures. After all, what’s stopping someone from simply downloading an image that you own and using it as their PFP? Now, there’s a way around that, if you’re willing to pay up for it.
The verification system, which produces the NFTs in a new hexagonal profile picture, is available to Twitter Blue members. A membership costs $2.99 per month and provides users with unique features, like cosmetic enhancements and an “undo” button. The new system is powered by leading NFT marketplace OpenSea’s application programming interface (API). The inclusion of OpenSea acts as a third party in the verification process.
