“Given the high demand for NFTs, the need for a solution to today’s fragmented viewing and acquisition environment has never been greater,” the company said.
The TVs also include Smart Calibration support, allowing NFT creators to create preset values for display settings; smart TVs will automatically adjust their display to match the presets “so you can rest assured that your work is flawless, with image quality true to the original”.
NFTs soared in the last year, as trading in these assets reached more than $10 billion in the third quarter of 2021, increasing 38,000% for the year.
