You placed your bid, waited…and sold! You just purchased your first NFT!
Will that ape remain bored for the rest of its digital life inside your crypto wallet? Or will you let it out for the whole world to see? There are many ways to show off your coveted NFT art. If you just purchased an NFT and are ready to bring it to life, keep scrolling to learn about all the ways you can display your NFT art.
You probably have seen digital picture frames before. They are commonly used to display a rotating gallery of photos; usually exported from a smartphone. Nowadays you can use them to display your own NFTs!
With the growing popularity of NFTs, the digital frame space has evolved beyond the bedside, A6-sized portraits. You can now hang large digital displays on walls, or even project three-dimensional NFTs as a hologram within a frame. You also have the freedom to swap out NFTs as you please, rather than being limited to one piece of art.
Digital frames, as beautiful as they are, have no means to verify the authenticity of an NFT. They also aren’t tied to the blockchain. That means anyone could display a screenshotted NFT art in a digital frame without having to prove it’s their property.
If you want to go for a vibe that’s more tangible and traditional, consider printing out an NFT display. I know you’re probably thinking, “If I make a copy of my NFT, will it no longer be unique?”
While the copy may not be the ‘real thing’, adding a QR code next to the framed copy will allow any perusers to verify the authenticity through the QR code link.
Going this route is great for static NFTs and could breathe life into something that’s typically digital. Just be mindful of choosing the right resolution for the size of your print. If your NFT is dynamic or contains 3D elements, this option may not be the best.
3. In The Metaverse
Maybe NFTs are never meant to leave the virtual world?
If you feel that way, then showcasing your art in the metaverse might be the thing for you. Games like Decentraland and Cryptovoxels allow users to display their NFTs virtually. This could be in a private space—like a virtual home—or a public metaverse art gallery.
If you spend quite a bit of time in the metaverse, this might be the route to go for displaying your NFTs. It’s also a great way to me prospective buyers for your work. There is a downside to this though. You won't be able to see your art anywhere outside of the metaverse.
4. Smart TV
Smart TVs, like the Samsung Frame, are now capable of displaying NFTs on the big screen. By linking your wallet to the NFT TV app you can then cast your favourite NFTs directly to your televisions.
Having NFTs on display is great when having guests at your home; functioning as an art piece and conversation starter. Keep in mind that wallet and network support is still an ongoing concern. You don’t want to buy a new smart tv only to find out that it doesn’t support your crypto wallet.
Although a fairly new concept, you can even display your NFT as an Apple Watch face! This is by far one of the more unique ways to display an NFT. And with your art right on your wrist, it’s easy to show off during a conversation. Here’s how:
Alternatively, you can screenshot NFTs within your wallet, and create a watch face using the Apple Watch app. Just know that you lose authenticity going this route. And if your piece is quite dynamic or detailed, some of the more intricate parts may not show up clearly on such a small display.
Bridge the digital world with the real world and bring your art to life with a wearable piece of jewellery. Ivy J Jewelers has done just that; creating jewellery that allows you to display your personal NFTs wherever you go each day.
Although you might bring quite some attention to yourself with a flashy piece of digital jewellery, it is the ultimate expression of custom-made rarity. Only you own the NFT, and only you own the jewellery that holds it.
Metaverse art is growing in popularity, with NFT art exhibitions now occurring in the real world. Great art is meant for more than just one pair of eyes, so why keep your NFTs hiding in your wallet?
Display your personality by showcasing your NFTs to a wider audience. Physical print, digital framing or in the metaverse, choose whatever method reflects your style as a collector.
With NFT TV, you can turn any smart tv into an NFT display. Our app is the only app that casts from the blockchain, meaning you can only display NFTs in your wallet (i.e. no copies). Here’s how you do it.
And there’s your NFT display! For more NFTs tips and tricks, make sure to visit the rest of our blog.
