Samsung’s next generation of TVs will focus on NFTs. Staring at your non-fungible tokens on your smartphone or computer screen is fine, but why not remind everyone who visits your house of the money you invested in digital art NFTs by displaying them on your TV? We appear to be living in a world where that will soon become a reality: Samsung claims it plans to provide extensive support for NFTs beginning with its 2022 television line.
“With demand for NFTs on the rise, the need for a solution to today’s fragmented viewing and purchasing landscape has never been greater… In 2022, Samsung is introducing the world’s first TV screen-based NFT explorer and marketplace aggregator, a groundbreaking platform that lets you browse, purchase, and display your favorite art — all in one place.”
According to Samsung, this platform (pictured above) will allow creators to “share their art with the world” and allow potential purchasers to:
- Preview an NFT before purchasing it
- Learn about an NFT’s history and blockchain metadata
NFTs everywhere: Samsung, Roku, Amazon, and more
Samsung is taking extra care of details when it comes to showing NFTs on its 2022 televisions. A smart calibration function on the TVs will automatically alter display settings “to the creator’s preferred values,” allowing you to have peace of mind that your creation appears flawless with genuine-to-the-original image quality. You’ve probably heard of things like Dolby Vision and Netflix Calibrated Mode, and NFTs will soon be able to enjoy a similar treatment.
Samsung’s support for NFTs is a major step forward in the integration of blockchain technology into consumer tech products. More information on the NFT platform should be released as 2022 TVs begin to ship throughout the subsequent months. Samsung has become the first significant TV manufacturer to embrace NFTs to this extent, according to today’s news. Is it possible that your next Roku or Amazon Fire TV will have some form of NFT integration?
