Samsung Set to Release Smart TV with NFT Trading Capabilities

January 05, 2022, 9:45 AM AEST - 1 week ago

What’s the point of owning an NFT (non-fungible token) if you can’t show it off to everyone you know? Korean technology giant Samsung Electronics understands this and is here to help by introducing three TV models incorporating an NFT explorer and marketplace aggregator – a platform that allows owners to browse, purchase, and display their favourite art.

Samsung Brings Blockchain to Your Smart TV

The past couple of months has seen an unprecedented explosion in the NFT market, and the need for tech companies to get on board has become all the more important. Samsung is leading the charge in this respect by introducing a new “NFT Aggregation Platform”, designed for three of its 2022 TV models.

According to Samsung:

In 2022, Samsung is introducing the world’s first TV screen-based NFT explorer and marketplace aggregator, a groundbreaking platform that lets you browse, purchase, and display your favourite art – all in one place.

Watch TV, Buy NFTs

The platform, which will be available on Samsung’s MicroLed, Neo QLED, and The Frame models, will allow users to browse and buy NFTs directly from the TVs. The new platform pulls in NFTs from different marketplaces so users can preview the art and see who created it, along with all relevant blockchain metadata.

For users who already own NFTs, the platform can be used to showcase their prized possessions. Samsung has also introduced its “Smart Calibration” technology that automatically adjusts the TV’s setting to match the original specifications, to ensure the image is rendered as optimally as the creator intended.

Among the impressive specs offered by the platform, the application will feature an “intuitive, integrated platform for discovering, purchasing and trading digital artwork”, which allows users to trade NFTs on set.

Hopefully Samsung’s forward thinking will inspire the 90 percent of Australians who reportedly remain ignorant of cryptos and NFTs to investigate the new revolution.
