Adobe takes another step into the world of NFT
Adobe takes another step into the world of NFT

Adobe's social network, Behance, is adding support for Polygon's cryptocurrency platform, allowing users to easily view Polygon-based non-fungible or NFT tokens.

This integration with Polygon is powered by infrastructure provider Alchemy. The company is promoting Polygon integration as a greener way for artists to create NFTs, which Behance has been supporting since late last year.

This eco-friendliness is part of Adobe's ongoing expansion into coding and is meant to reassure concerned artists of the potential negative effects.

The Polygon platform runs on the Ethereum blockchain and has low power consumption for a single crypto transaction. It also avoids the huge transaction costs associated with Ethereum.

On the other hand, Polygon's popularity continues to add more aggregate traffic to the power-hungry Ethereum system, which is set to launch with a more efficient verification system but has yet to do so.

Artists can use this new NFT tool with Polygon in OpenSea. Linked images can be viewed through Behance and viewers are directed to OpenSea for purchase.

Adobe will start adding NFT support in late 2021, starting with a program called Content Credentials. The program links the creator's reference details to the NFT image in Photoshop.

His interest in crypto assets overlapped with an earlier initiative called the Content Authenticity Initiative, which linked the photos with details about who took them and whether they had been altered.

Unlike non-blockchain-based systems, NFTs are very controversial. Some of the strongest criticisms relate to environmental costs.

However, the move is unlikely to allay those fears. But it shows that Adobe knows this very well.

Behance also announced that users can now connect their dummy wallets to their Behance accounts and display the non-fungible Solana NFT token on their profiles.

Phantom is a Solana wallet designed for decentralized finance or DeFi and NFT applications. The Web3 QuickNode Adobe infrastructure platform helped develop this feature via Solana.

Behance creators can display non-fungible tokens in their profiles via the Ethereum blockchain.

Adobe Vice President William Allen, who runs Behance, explained via Twitter that many Behance users may not want to connect to Ethereum due to concerns about high energy consumption and gas costs.

Allen tweeted that Solana is a Proof of Stake series that is working on fixing these issues. It is found that a single transaction through Solana uses many features such as Google search and costs only a penny.

Phantom explained that this integration is important to Solana's creative economy because it provides artists with an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to experience NFT technology.
