How Significant Is Instagram’s NFT Launch? What are the things you should look out for?

Earlier this month the head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri, announced that he will start beta testing NFT functions with a small group of users in the US.  Mosseri also confirmed there will be no fees for posting or sharing NFTs on Instagram.  Any NFT digital collectibles shared in Instagram will appear as tagged photos or profiles, and when clicked, you will be able to view creator and artwork details.  Instagram supports the display of NFTs created on the Ethereum and Polygon as well as on Flow and Solana in the future.  It will also support the use of third-party encrypted wallets such as Rainbow, MetaMask and Trust Wallet, with support for more crypto wallets planned in the future.

Creators and developers participating in the beta can now share the NFTs they make or buy.  Users can share these NFTs in their feeds, stories, or messages.  According to Mosseri, only a few people currently have access to Instagram’s NFT beta test, which is designed to be able to gain important data feedback from the initial test and learn how to best integrate the buying and selling of these digital collectibles. While more NFT-related features will be rolled out in the future I believe that Instagram’s NFT rollout may be part of Instagram’s parent company Meta’s metaverse project, involving a deeper interaction in the future. As Mosseri tweeted a few days after the NFT announcement: “Power is shifting. Over the next 10 years, we are going to see a shift in power away from platforms and towards creators. There’s a lot we all can and should do to lean into that shift.”

 

What is the purpose of Instagram’s move?

I believe that the creator economy is very important for Instagram in the current market. While many creators in social media already have a variety of different ways to make money, many of them are unpredictable and dependent on the platform they use.  Therefore, there is a strong case to believe that Instagram will be able to attract creators to form a community. “I want to acknowledge upfront that NFTs and blockchain technologies are all about distributing trust and distributing power,” Mosseri admitted. “But Instagram is fundamentally a centralized platform, so there’s a tension there. One of the reasons why we’re starting small is we want to make sure that we can learn from the community. We want to make sure that we work out how to embrace those tenets of distributed trust and distributed power, despite the fact that we are, yes, a centralized platform.”

In the metaverse, people will buy, use NFTs for a variety of purposes, and share their experiences. Meta decided to start with NFTs because NFTs are an important link in the metaverse economy. I believe that since Facebook changed its name to Meta, they have been exploring a wider range of web3 technologies, and aim that through using these technologies, creation costs will be reduced, and the experience would be better. Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg confirmed that similar functionality will soon be available on Facebook and possibly other Meta apps in the future.  Zuckerberg added that Meta will work on augmented reality NFTs, or 3D NFTs.

In my view, Instagram’s foray into NFTs has been planned for quite a while. In 2021, Instagram hosted Creators Week, an invite-only virtual summit that Instagram describes in its invitations as a “private event for NFT creators.”  It’s also worth noting that Instagram’s NFT beta program launched not long after Twitter enabled NFT profile pictures for its premium users.  That said, Instagram and Twitter are not the only big tech companies entering the NFT space. Susan Wojcicki, CEO of YouTube, said it may start using web3 technologies including NFTs in the near future to help YouTube creators monetize their work: “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,” she confirmed in a letter published in January.

In the light of the developments, industry experts are all optimistic of Instagram’s moves on NFT. “I think Instagram can help users to understand NFT better. They are also indirectly introducing new users to the cryptocurrency space. Overall, this is a positive move and I hope more companies can do the same.” Jenny Zheng, Business Development lead at Bybit NFT Marketplace commented.

Anndy Lian, thought leader and Chairman at BigONE exchange said: “While Instagram isn’t the first social app to experiment with NFTs, the sheer size of its one billion (monthly active) user base gives it its biggest reach versus its competitors, which means that the addition of web3 technology it could potentially engage a whole new group of users.  And with Meta’s Facebook expected to add similar features in the near future, Meta will have a huge NFT presence in the social media space. I know Instagram can create more sparks in the NFT space. I am so looking forward.”

It is also worth noting that as the value of NFTs has fallen significantly since last year, so the number of users interested in the feature may be lower than expected.  As a striking example of this slowdown, on May 4, the Coinbase NFT marketplace opened, but since then only just over four thousand people have bought an NFT. So it remains to be seen whether Instagram and Facebook can turn things around and rekindle significant user enthusiasm for NFTs.

Investing.com: How to Find the Next 1000× Memecoin to Invest in: Essential Things to Know

Investing.com: How to Find the Next 1000× Memecoin to Invest in: Essential Things to Know

Investing in meme coins is not a stroll in the park if you want to hit it big and earn good returns on your investment. Meme coins have risen in popularity in recent times, all thanks to Elon Musk and his antics with Dogecoin. It is important to know that most of these coins are scams and are there to defraud unsuspecting people of their money. Therefore, if you want to put your money in meme coins, you need to be very careful and seek out the right information to guide your choice.

Finding a meme coin with 1000× potential is like looking for a needle in a haystack. However, with the right guidance, you can know how and where to look for the rare gem that will hit the moon. The boom in the crypto market in 2021 led to the proliferation of new tokens almost on a daily basis. Most of these new coins vanish within few weeks of their launch, leaving a trail of “bleeding” investors in their wake.

However, the meteoric rise of meme coins like Dogecoin and SafeMoon is evidence that investors can make good money. All you need is the ability to identify the tokens with huge potential early enough. In fact, it is possible to have 1000× on investment in the crypto space but only with good research into meme coins.

 

How to avoid Rugpulls and minimize risk

When investing in meme coins, avoiding rugpulls is also as important as identifying the right coin. With my experience in analyzing lots of crypto projects, I can tell the signs of s crypto rugpull. This observation is primarily for coins launched on DEXs like PancakeSwap and Uniswap.

 

Study the initial token distribution

Developers of new tokens have the power to distribute the initial token supply the way they want. Most times, you see these dev teams give a huge chunk of the tokens to themselves and, in some cases, to a crypto celebrity. When you see such things, you need to tread with caution. Since these people did not buy in like the rest of the investors, they can dump their holdings at any time. The best option is to go for tokens put up on PancakeSwap or Uniswap for anyone and everyone to buy.

 

Ensure you know who owns the liquidity pool

For the scam meme coins designed to defraud investors, you see the developers owning the entire liquidity pool. The implication is that these developers can remove the whole pool, including the ETH and BNB, inside the pool. This is a perfect setup for painful rugpull. The majority of the liquidity pool should be held by the burn address designated with something like “oxoooo…”

Investors should also be wary of tokens that have high transaction fees, as this is likely a ploy to discourage people from selling their coins.

 

The Search for Meme coin with 1000× Potential

When investing in meme coins, maximizing the reward should be the utmost goal. Therefore, to achieve this goal, you have to substantially reduce risk by eliminating rugpulls and then identifying the coins with the potential to reach the moon. Things to look out for include:

 

The mission of the dev team

Create time to hang out in the token’s community to know what the dev team always talks about. If they talk about long-term focus and community building, then that’s a good sign. You should stay away if they are always talking about pumping the price and pressuring people to buy. Check if they have a whitepaper with a real and actionable vision and mission.

 

Is the meme coin cute with real potential?

The fact is that cute tokens often always win the market share because people love to buy adorable tokens. Those who follow Dogecoin must have learned not to underestimate the potential of a memorable puppy.

 

Some promising meme coins to consider

Following the above analysis, here are a few meme coins with good potential to invest in.

  • BabyDoge – deflationary meme coin that is designed to be scarce with time. It is cute but also comes with a lot of BITE!
  • MiniDoge – first auto-boost and hyper deflationary coin in the crypto market
  • CorgiCoin – one of those coins that is exclusively community owned. All the tokens are locked on PancakeSwap and the keys are burned.
  • CateCoin – a special coin designed to be used on meme platforms where meme creators get paid in CateCoin after submitting their memes.

“1000X is just a dream to many, it has a lot of risks that come with it. You need to study the project properly from its team members to their tokenomics. You have to ask them where are their revenue streams too. Lastly, look carefully where they are listed. Some exchanges are safer, more reputable than others. Always do your own research.” Anndy Lian, Chairman for BigONE Asia and Chief Digital Advisor for Mongolian Productivity Organisation commented.
