One thing is absolutely true for NFTs: “if you have them, show them off”.
After spending millions, seeing a few bucks on NFT art, and building an NFT collection, it’s only natural that you want to display it where everyone can see it. There are even several clever and creative ways to display your NFTs outside of virtual worlds. Unlike traditional physical art such as paintings and sculptures, which can be easily framed and preserved, displaying NFT art is more delicate. It should show its authenticity, keep the various determinants and give the true feeling of digital art (be it video, audio or other types of artwork) as they are placed on stage. If you want to make it more durable, you can opt for aluminum plates. SolidNFT is such a platform that offers a solution. Through a process called sublimation, the NFT is printed onto the foil with an authentication panel on the back, which contains full transaction and ownership details.
OnCyber, an online art space, allows users to showcase their crypto art and create their own shows. This requires users to connect their blockchain wallets. Other similar platforms include names like Showtime, the “Instagram” for NFTs, and Lazy. Premium and verified Twitter accounts have the privilege of uploading NFTs as profile pictures and Meta will soon introduce a feature to show and sell NFTs on Instagram.
But you may also want to share them with your audience. And to do this you have to go to your digital wallet like Metamask and get the shareable link to your NFT which is annoying to this day because you have to go to Etherscan which stores all your transactions to copy it to metamask ! Crypto art can be easily introduced in the digital universe and displayed in the metaverse as well, moreover, some have used the QR code!
The QR code therefore has a card to play to send to the NFTs and display! The history of QR codes has been going on for 26 years. But by the way, since when can we use them? And why do it? Why did the premium ecosystem never start? What do you say about today? Why is the use of QR codes so widespread in Asia? To listen to the answers, just listen to the 135 gram podcast on the QR code.
Some genius developers have made an action to sell an NFT on Solana with a QR code, we should see great initiatives on the different platforms in the coming months…
- Platforms like opensea only share their own link to NFTs, the QR code will become a tool that should become widespread! In September 2021, Vogue Singapore launched its very first September issue themed: New Beginnings. They put a QR code on their printed magazines. With a single scan, people were redirected to two digital-only covers available as NFTs.
- Another example: the manufacturer Lamborghini announced in January 2022 the launch of its Space-Time Memory project, which consists of two different elements: a physical work of art and a digital piece. The body comes in the shape of the Lamborghini Space Key. There is a QR code on the back of the keys. Once digitized, the end user has access to a double digital artwork as NFT.
- Burger King has also entered the NFT world with QR codes. In September 2021, they launched an NFT campaign called “Keep It Real Meals”. Here QR codes were attached to nearly 6 million lunch boxes. When customers scan them, they unlock a digital collectible. And customers can collect them to unlock bonus NFTs.
- Automaker KIA America is launching NFTs as part of the marketing campaign for its all-new 2023 KIA Soul. The 30-second spot showcases NFTs as talents and features a unique QR code embedded in the ad. Viewers viewing the ad simply need to scan the QR code with their smartphone to get one of these NFTs.
