In reality, Vkontakte is the nation’s second most visited website, behind only Yandex, the search engine portal.

In an interview with Vesti, Vkontakte Technical Director Alexander Tobol discusses entering the NFT and Blockchain space. He claims that “It is easy to create an NFT, then list it on an exchange. And here, our task as the largest service in Russia for interaction with [an] audience, with an incredible amount of user-generated content, is to provide this opportunity.”

Trying to join NFT world will open up a large opportunity for the 60 million active users to create, acquire, and trade NTFs. Vkontakte intends to harness both NFT and blockchain technology in order to monetize user-generated content and protect copyrights.

As a consequence of this change, customers will be more inclined to use the technology. It is undeniably exciting to see a huge company such as Vkontakte enter the NFT sector.
