Samsung Electronics announced three TV models for 2022 that will enable NFT trading on the set, the company said on its website on Monday.

  • The application features an “intuitive, integrated platform for discovering, purchasing and trading digital artwork through MICRO LED, Neo QLED and The Frame,” the three new TV models.
  • NFTs (non-fungible tokens), feature prominently in the metaverse, a superset of virtual reality, augmented reality and the internet, writes CoinDesk reporter Eli Tan in his deep dive into the phenomenon.
  • “NFTs will also play a foundational role in the metaverse, giving people complete ownership of their characters, accrued in-game items and even virtual land. An NFT of a 259-parcel virtual estate in Decentraland recently sold for more than $900,000, the largest sale to date,” Tan wrote in August.
