OnlyFans launches verified NFT profile pictures

The popular subscription platform OnlyFans, known for its adult content, will now let users post verified NFTs as profile pictures. 

The platform will only support NFTs minted on the Ethereum blockchain and will show an Ethereum icon on NFT profile pictures to mark them as authentic. The company said it introduced NFT profile pictures in December, according to Reuters, which first reported the news.

OnlyFans, launched in 2016, has become a popular way for content creators to make money for content by selling it to subscribers. The move is just one by many recent several social media companies who have jumped into launching NFT profile pictures, including Twitter, as The Block previously reported.

On Thursday, YouTube noted in a blog post that technologies like "blockchain and NFTs can allow creators to build deeper relationships with their fans."

OnlyFans has been reached for comment to provide more details on the launch, and this article will be updated if they respond.
