NETGEAR Braces Solana Blockchain through Integration of Phantom Wallet with Meural Platform
NETGEAR Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR), the leading provider of award-winning connected products that make people’s lives easier and more enjoyable, has revealed its intention to broaden choices for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on Meural canvases by including support for Phantom, the top tier self-custody wallet for the Solana blockchain. This move is part of NETGEAR’s larger strategy to expand the availability of NFTs on Meural canvases. Collectors will be able to connect their Phantom wallets to Meural, a digital canvas that aims to showcase digital works in a way that is analogous to that of conventional art, beginning in the month of August.
Meural by NETGEAR was created based on the assumption that the clever use of technology may change access to and discovery of visual art, therefore integrating it into the daily lives of people all over the world. The platform, which consists of a distinctive WiFi-connected digital canvas, the Meural Art Library (the world’s largest streaming library of art and photography), a smartphone app, and a web portal, was designed to engage new audiences in digital art while also providing collectors and enthusiasts with a way to display the works that inspire them. The platform was developed by Meural. This latest move to include Phantom brings the native Solana ecosystem of NFT enthusiasts onboard and invites the vibrant community of creators and collectors to use Meural’s web platform to bring their digital artwork to the walls of their homes and offices. Meural already supports MetaMask and Coinbase wallets. Phantom brings the native Solana ecosystem of NFT enthusiasts onboard.
“NFTs are transforming the digital environment by encouraging innovation, communities, and collaboration, in addition to increasing access to visual culture. The senior product and content manager for the Meural brand at NETGEAR,” said Poppy Simpson. “we’ve gone an extra mile to ensure that NFT collectors and Meural owners may present their collections in the best possible way from the comfort of their own homes. Solana is without a doubt one of the most intriguing blockchains in the market. We are overjoyed to be working with people that share our commitment to fostering growth in the NFT ecosystem, particularly among its collectors and innovators, and we are very excited about this opportunity.”
The Meural displays will become the focal point of the visual NFT experience at Solana Spaces in the Hudson Yards neighborhood beginning today. Visitors to Solana Spaces will be able to acquire knowledge about non-fungible tokens (NFTs), distributed ledger technology (blockchain), and other Web3 projects throughout their time there. Solana Spaces is the first retail, educational, and social venue dedicated to Web3. In addition, canvases produced by Meural will be made available for purchase during the event.
According to Vibhu Norby, the company’s creator, “Bringing together Meural, Phantom, and Solana NFTs is exactly the type of interaction for which Solana Spaces was built.” Solana Spaces was meant to facilitate this kind of collaboration. “We could not be more thrilled to showcase and provide a live demonstration of this amazing product and integration in-store.”
