Adobe’s Behance adds support for Solana & Polygon NFTs

Published on:

Behance, an Adobe company, announced on Monday that users can now connect their Phantom wallets to their Behance accounts and showcase Solana (SOL) nonfungible tokens (NFTs) on their profiles. Phantom is a Solana wallet built for decentralized finance, or DeFi, applications as well as for NFTs. QuickNode, a Miami-based Web3 infrastructure platform, helped build out this feature with Adobe on Solana.

Some Behance creators are already displaying their NFTs that were minted on the Ethereum blockchain within their profiles. However, some users may not want to be associated with Ethereum because of its high energy usage and gas costs.

Phantom tweeted that the inclusion of Solana is “huge” for the Solana creator economy because it allows artists to “experiment with NFTs in an eco-friendly and low-cost way.”

In October 2021, Behance enabled artists to connect their crypto wallets and NFTs to their Behance profile. Adobe also partnered with Rarible, OpenSea, KnownOrigin and SuperRare as part of the company’s “Content Authenticity Initiative” to protect digital creators by displaying provenance data. Allen added on Twitter that Solana addresses will be added to the Content Credentials tool in Photoshop to combat NFT artwork getting stolen and ensure that proper credit is given.

QuickNode allows Adobe to rent access to the Solana blockchain instead of building and maintaining its own node. According to the QuickNode website, the company is the top Solana node service provider and it powers more than 50% of the Solana ecosystem.

Alchemy, a provider of infrastructure services, has partnered with Behance to allow creators to display NFTs (non-fungible tokens) minted on the proof-of-stake chain on the Polygon network. This integration will make it easier for creators to showcase their work.
