NFTs Coming to YouTube?

In a letter published earlier today, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki hinted that the media company could embrace web3 technologies in the future. Among these technologies are NFTs as a potential source of income for creators. No firm details were revealed, but the company is expected to begin experimenting with these collectibles on its website.

“We’re always focused on expanding the YouTube ecosystem to help creators capitalize on emerging technologies, including things like NFTs, while continuing to strengthen and enhance the experiences creators and fans have on YouTube,” Wojcicki wrote.

This announcement comes after YouTube’s social media competitor Twitter launched a huge NFT profile picture campaign, which you can read more about here.

This is just the latest step that NFTs have taken towards mainstream media incorporation, and it’s only the beginning.
