Adobe's Behance integrates Phantom wallet for showcasing Solana NFTs
Behance creators with Phantom wallets integration are available, and the feature was powered by QuickNode.
Behance is the creative showcase platform owned by Adobe, declared that users can now connect their Phantom wallet to 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.
Behance creators can already be displayed their NFTs minted on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain within their profiles. William Allen, the Adobe vice president leading Behance, explained on Twitter that many of Behance's users may no longer want to connect with Ethereum due to concerns over its high energy usage and gas costs.
Allen tweeted that Solana is a proof-of-stake chain that addresses these concerns, pointing out that a single transaction on Solana "uses as much energy as a Google search and costs a fraction of a penny."
Our mission at @Behance has been steadfast for over a decade: help creatives build their careers on their own terms. Some choose to freelance, some want full-time gigs, some offer subscriptions, some sell templates, some livestream, and others sell NFTs. (1/8)— williamallen.sol (@williamallen) March 7, 2022
Phantom echoed the sentiment, tweeting that this integration is "huge" for the Solana creator economy because it allows artists "an eco-friendly and low-cost way to experiment with NFTs"
Behance first enabled its artists to connect their crypto wallet and NFTs to their Behance profile in Oct 2021. Also, Adobe partnered with Rarible, OpenSea, KnownOrigin, and SuperRare NFT marketplaces 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 acquiring stolen and confirm that proper credit is given.
QuickNode permits Adobe to rent access to the Solana blockchain, as opposed to building and maintaining its node. As per QuickNode, the company is the top Solana node service provider and it powers more than 50% of the Solana ecosystem.
