Apparently interest in NFT in the community is quite high looking from more active discussions than other topics. Perhaps we'll see more GftW funded Interledger + NFT projects in the future. 🤔

Yeah, it has certainly become a hot topic in this community as of late. Either that or you and I are just noticing the conversations more as we take interest in the topic.

Yup. That's what I thought 🤔

Radhy,

I see "misalignment" between NFT and ILP. NFT is a product of public blockchain(s) which tend to stipulate or at least favor their crypto currency. In contrast ILP is an interoperable payment system that is agnostic to currencies (and that is the "beauty" of it). So why ILP would endorse an NFT project that favors their crypto currency?

I didn't mean for GftW to fund NFT projects strictly that ILP to endorse NFT. Just saying that since the community members have interest on NFT we could see more GftW projects expand to experiment on NFT space. There are a few grantees that do that already.
