MarTech » Data » NFTs are taking off on Instagram
With influencers and digital artists leading the way, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are taking Meta’s Instagram by storm.
Data from influencer marketing platform HypeAuditor shows:
Who is running these accounts? HypeAuditor sorts the NFT accounts into the following five categories:
For example, the most followed NFT-related account, that of Brazilian soccer star Daniel Alves (over 36 million followers) announces its affiliation with Club Gorgon, a members-only “phygital art club.”
Support from Instagram. Earlier this month, Instagram announced its support for digital creators and collectors showcasing NFTs on the platform. Creators and collectors will be able to share digital collectibles by connecting their digital wallets to the site.
In the announcement, Instagram said: “It’s critical that our early efforts in this space empower diverse voices and that underrepresented groups have access to emerging digital assets like NFTs. By building support for NFTs, we aim to improve accessibility, lower barriers to entry, and help make the NFT space more inclusive to all communities.”

Why we care. Where are the brands? Among the top 100 NFT-related accounts identified by HypeAuditor, only sneaker store KicksOnFire stands out as a brand. (Not counting celebrities as brands, which may be controversial.)
There seems to be a solid trend here and it’s surprising that brands boasting cutting-edge marketing strategies aren’t yet showing up.
