Instagram has become one of the most popular social media platforms today, attracting over a billion active users every month.
Along with sharing photos and videos, Instagram has also introduced digital collectibles that users can share on their profiles. These digital collectibles have become a new craze among Instagram users, especially among collectors.
Here, the focus is on how Instagram leverages blockchain technology to ensure the transparency and authenticity of these digital collectibles.
How Instagram uses blockchain technology:
Instagram uses blockchain technology to record who owns and creates digital collectibles. This technology provides a secure and transparent way to track the ownership of digital assets.
When users connect a third-party wallet to their Instagram account, they allow the app to validate their ownership of their public wallet address.
Instagram works with these third-party digital wallet apps to validate who owns and who creates the digital collectibles shared on the platform.
By doing so, Instagram can ensure that the digital collectibles are authentic and have not been tampered with.
Disconnecting your digital wallet:
If you decide to disconnect your digital wallet from Instagram, you can do so easily by following these steps:
- Log into your Instagram account.
- Tap the hamburger menu icon in the top right of your screen, then tap "Digital collectibles."
- Tap the wallet you want to disconnect.
- Tap "more actions," then tap "Disconnect wallet."
- One more time, tap "Disconnect wallet" to confirm your wallet's disconnection.
A different Instagram account can be connected to your wallet once it has been disconnected.
