Vinnie Hager is about to mint his first 25 NFTs via Instagram
Collectors can purchase the artworks by paying with credit cards
Artist Vinnie Hager is set to mint one of the first NFTs via Instagram. The creator has shared the news in a Twitter post.
Vinnie is among the selected U.S.-based artists that are testing the new Instagram NFT features. On November 21, 2 PM EST, Hager will release 25 editions of his artwork dubbed “Lollygagging.” The artworks will be minted on Polygon and will be tradeable across various marketplaces.
A Lollygagging NFT will go for $249.99. Users wishing to purchase one of these NFTs must connect their wallets to Instagram. However, so far, there’s no information about the possibility of cryptocurrency payments; the platform will accept credit cards.
“My creative process continues to evolve and change in tune with each artistic medium I experiment with. Creating artworks digitally has been at the forefront of my art practice over the last two years and this piece is the next extension of that process,”says Vinnie Hager.
Meta started testing digital collectibles features on U.S.-based Instagram users in May this year. The initiative was launched in partnership with Polygon and Flow blockchains and was later expanded to Ethereum. First, the tech giant integrated NFT support, which allows users to share their digital collectibles on social media. The first NFT Instagram post was made on May 11.
Following this, the company selected a small group of U.S.-based creators to test the minting feature. The tests took off earlier this month. Among the selected artists that are participating in the initiative are Diana Sinclair, Sara Baumann, Refik Anadol, Danny Casale, Dave Krugman, Eric Rubens, Amber Vittoria, Jason Seife, and Olive Allen.
