OnlyFans, an online subscription platform known for its adult content, has launched a feature for users to display verified NFTs as profile photos.
This is how this company jumps on the bandwagon of others like Twitter or Reddit, which have also explored ways to incorporate digital tokens into their platforms.
And it is that OnlyFans, since it was launched in 2016, it has had a big boom during the pandemic, as it became a way for creators to make money by selling explicit content to subscribers.
The CEO of OnlyFans resigns and a new stage in the social network is expected after the latest controversies
“Our mission is to enable creators to own their full potential,” said OnlyFans CEO Ami Gan. “This feature is the first step in exploring the role that NFTs can play on our platform” , he continues.
OnlyFans has stated that it only supports NFTs minted on the Ethereum blockchain. It states that creators’ NFT profile pictures will display an Ethereum icon to mark them as authentic.
Let’s remember that Twitter also chose to differentiate the profile photos with NFT, since it shows them as a hexagon and not as a circle, as is traditional.
There is speculation with the idea of what is behind this change for the novelty. And it is that this platform, and this is a reality, is not going through its best season. Despite being a boom during the pandemic, its benefits have decreased.

In addition, to this we must add that they talked about a possible removal of explicit content from their platform. Perhaps this is the way to get back on the front page and talk about this social network again.
At the moment and this is clear, OnlyFans does not want to be left out of one of the great current trends. Other companies like Instagram or YouTube are already talking about their own plans around NFTs.
