Zuckerberg, 38, hinted that Facebook will follow Instagram with NFTs soon.

"We're starting building for NFTs, not just in our metaverse and Reality Labs work, but also across our family of apps," he said.

"We're starting to test digital collectibles on Instagram so that creators and collectors can display their NFTs."
