the legendary onlyfans is the latest service to go the nft route. a content subscription service that is world famous for adult content, its blocking with non-fungible tokens should surprise no one. although it does. do people claim to show off their 100k .jpeg investment on all sites onlyfans? Does the integration make sense?
yes, if you take into account what CEO ami gan told Reuters. “This feature is the first step in exploring the role that nfts can play on our platform.” Do profile photos and onlyfans make sense? maybe not, but nfts and onlyfans sure do. and this is the first step in that direction.

However, there is a caveat. onlyfans will connect to the opensea api, which means:
“onlyfans said it only supports nfts minted on the ethereum blockchain. It said creators’ nft profile pictures would display an ethereum icon to mark them as authentic.”
Is this a win for the leading smart contract platform?
onlyfans empowers creators
How will nft profile pictures empower creators? that remains to be seen. however, the potential of mixing the core business of onlyfans with nfts is undeniable. “onlyfans, which launched in 2016, grew during the pandemic as it became a way for creators to make money by selling content directly to subscribers,” reuters said. once again, my friend:
“Our mission is to empower creators to own their full potential. this feature is the first step in exploring the role that nfts can play on our platform.”
And you better think fast, because you’re not the only ones considering the mix between cryptocurrency and adult content. as reported by the technological crisis:
“But the point is that helping sex workers maintain a steady income is not a bad use case for cryptocurrencies. a former onlyfans creator, allie rae, is now working at wetspace, a crypto-centric alternative to onlyfans.”
twitter and reddit are exploring nft pfp
once again, Reuters:
“The UK-based company, which said it introduced the feature in December, joins social media companies like twitter and reddit that have explored ways to incorporate digital tokens into their platforms.”
When twitter introduced the feature, bitcoinist said:
“Twitter announced in September that it would introduce a means for users to authenticate non-fungible tokens (nft). This is now available if you pay $2.99 for Twitter Blue and use an iOS device.
With an eye-catching introduction video and step-by-step instructions page, Twitter Blue, the social networking platform’s membership service, launched the feature on Thursday. Twitter’s profile picture feature is enabled by the nft market opensea api, according to today’s announcements.”
when reddit announced his experiments, the bitcoiner quoted spokesperson tim rathschmidt:
“We are always exploring ways to provide value to users and communities on reddit. At the moment we are testing the ability to use nfts as profile pictures (avatars) and verify ownership. it is a small internal test and no decisions have been made about expanding or implementing the capability.”
is youtube thinking of joining onlyfans?
In a recent post titled “A Look Into 2022,” Neal Mohan, Chief Product Officer at YouTube, said, “We believe that new technologies like blockchain and nfts can enable creators to build deeper relationships with their fans.” however, what specifically does it refer to?
“For example, offering a verifiable way for fans to own videos, photos, art, and even unique experiences from their favorite creators could be a compelling prospect for creators and their audiences.”
Your program doesn’t seem to be about profile pictures at all. and it sounds innovative enough. will youtube go ahead with that? are they committed to nft culture or are they just testing the waters? In any case, it seems that corporate adoption of nfts is underway.
