Adobe’s Creative Platform ‘Behance’ Adds Support for Solana NFTs

Behance users can now connect their Phantom wallets to their accounts to showcase Solana (SOL) non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on their profiles.

Phantom is a Solana wallet built for decentralised finance (DeFi) applications as well as for NFTs. QuickNode, a Miami-based Web3 infrastructure platform, helped build out this feature with Adobe on Solana. 

A More Viable Alternative to Ethereum

Although Behance creators can already display their NFTs minted on the Ethereum blockchain within their profiles, high energy usage and prohibitive gas costs are driving them away.

As Adobe vice-president William Allen pointed out on Twitter this week, Solana is a proof-of-stake chain that addresses these concerns. He added that a single transaction on Solana “uses as much energy as a Google search and costs a fraction of a penny”.

For its part, Phantom tweeted that this integration is “huge” for the Solana creator economy because it allows artists “an eco-friendly and low-cost way to experiment with NFTs”.

In October last year, Adobe announced it would launch a “prepare as NFT” option to its Photoshop software. Adobe’s Content Credential system would prove that the person selling an NFT is the one who made it and allow NFT sellers to link the Adobe ID with their crypto wallets. This would allow compatible NFT marketplaces to show a verification certificate to prove the art is authentic.
