At the moment, supported blockchains are Ethereum, Polygon, and Flow. Meta added there would not be any fees to post digital collectibles on Instagram.

Before the New Announcement
In May 2022, Meta first introduced digital collectibles on Instagram to the community. It is one of the ways for Meta to push creators to keep improving in the industry. In this one, creators can share their arts, interact with fans, and gain income. The company began with digital collectibles from US creators and collectors.
According to the press release, through this new initiative, they can “leverage new tools to earn income, [and] fans can support their favorite creators by purchasing digital collectibles – art, images, videos, music, or trading cards – as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).”
With Meta opening the access for more people, creators, and businesses to get involved, this may be a good opportunity for anyone to show their talents and earn income.
