Instagram takes NFTs to 100 new countries, but Europe remains mysteriously excluded


Mark Zuckerberg announced that NFT integration within Instagram will be expanded to 100 new countries. After the first encouraging tests in the United States, Meta has decided to push on the accelerator, exporting the initiative to Africa, Asia, the Middle East and South America.

For the moment Meta has no plans to bring NFTs also to Europe, and therefore to Italy.

Among other things, the CEO of Meta also announced that two new digital wallets will be supported in the near future: the Coinbase Wallet and the Dapper Wallet. Instagram will also support NFTs issued on the Flow network.

How the integration with NFTs works: users can link a digital wallet to their account, in order to show their collection of Non-Fungible Tokens on their Instagram profile. Thanks to the integration with wallets , users can certify that they are the legitimate owners of the tokens: each image contains a link to the collection page and to that of the collector.

Instagram currently supports Rainbow, MetaMask and Trust Wallet wallets. Coinbase Wallet and Dapper Wallet will arrive over the next few days.


Instagram supports the Ethereum , Flow and Polygon blockchains. For the time being, NFTs issued on Solana’s network continue to be excluded, despite being one of the liveliest ecosystems in the digital collectibles scene.

Instagram reiterated that the integration of NFTs on Instagram does not involve costs or fees for the user.
