Getty Images Venture Into NFTs

Shutterstock’s Getty Images is getting into NFTs. The NFTs will be minted on the Ethereum-compatible Palm blockchain.

Getty Images will tap its collection of over 465 million images, including 135 analog photographs, with a focus on turning never-before-seen archival works into NFTs.

Primary and secondary sales for the NFTs will occur on Candy’s marketplace.

Candy’s marketplace already has partnerships with Major League Baseball, NASCAR, and WWE.

The ConsenSys-backed Palm blockchain claims it uses 99% less energy than the Ethereum Mainnet.

Since launching last year, Palm also is compatible with the decentralized exchange Uniswap and the crypto wallet MetaMask.
