Linktree explores NFTs
Linktree, in partnership with the OpenSea marketplace, announced three new features on its platform, with the aim of bringing web2 and web3 closer together.
One of the three new features is the NFT Gallery Link, which allows users who own NFTs to create a gallery of up to six NFTs for visitors to view directly on Linktree.
The NFT Profile Image and Background feature allows NFT owners to customize their Linktree pages with their own tokens. Verified NFT profile images are displayed in a hexagonal format and verified backgrounds carry their own IDs, provided by Linktree, to let your visitors know that the NFTs are real.
And NFT Lock, allows users to block links on their Linktree pages using a contract address. This means that only visitors who have an NFT from a specific collection can access the unique links.
With the boom in the NFTs market, many companies started exploring the technology. In recent weeks, both Instagram and Spotify have revealed their plans to integrate NFT-related features into their platforms.
We’re excited about the possibilities of #Web3 in creator empowerment 💪
Today we’re launching 3 new features that allow creators to elevate their Linktrees with Web3. We developed some of these features in partnership with @OpenSea 🤝

OpenSea launches new protocol for buying and selling NFTs
OpenSea, the largest and most popular marketplace for NFTs, has launched a new protocol for buying and selling NFTs. The protocol, called Seaport, allows users to acquire NFTs in a number of new ways.
Users will be able to bundle different assets in exchange for an NFT. In addition, Seaport will also allow people to bid on specific features of a collection, i.e. for cases where the buyer doesn’t care what kind of NFT they receive, as long as the token features a feature they are looking for. .
In the official announcement, posted on the company’s blog, OpenSea stated that it does not operate or control the Seaport protocol and that the protocol is inherently decentralized, with no owner contract, upgradeability or other special privileges.
Introducing Seaport, a brand new web3 marketplace protocol for safely and efficiently buying and selling NFTs.
With an emphasis on flexibility and optimizations, Seaport has been built to support new and evolving use-cases for where NFTs are heading.https://t.co/3lUQIQm0km
