NFTs in Gather Spaces
We are looking into how NFT-based media could work in Gather Spaces and what benefits that would provide.

NFTs as Embed URL Objects

(Open OpenSea links in Gather!)
You can interact with the OpenSea page via Metamask while inside Gather!
Check Linking to NFTs for instructions on how to do this.

Deca Art - A NFT Gallery Extension

As a very early test, we have released a test extension together with https://deca.art/ to show NFT galleries inside of Gather. It adds an object that rotates through blockchain-based generative artwork - but can also be pointed at any gallery that exists on Deca.
At Gather we really want to identify what about NFT's are actually useful today, and what might still be speculation or hype-based misinformation. At Gather, we are always focused on building out primitives compared to specific implementations. Some thoughts on this:
Already today, you can upload the artwork to Gather and use the Embedded Website feature to link to the artwork's Opensea page. How does a Gather-native implementation differ from this?
Currently, playing music or audio files in Gather spaces exists in a legally ambigious area. How can Gather know if you have the rights to play this media in a "public" setting? NFTs might represent an open infrastructure for solving this.
