Judging by its history, Apple is known for having a knack for making a surprise. Thanks to an update shared by the tech giant, the NFT community believes there is a good chance of getting into web 3.0 with Apple NFT cards.
Speculation started after Apple revealed cool Memoji-like characters on its latest event page. The World Developers Conference 2022 annual marketing campaign features some cool NFT-like characters.
As a result, the cryptographic community on Twitter is hopeful with Apple’s entry into web 3.0. “Apple may release NFT business cards,” said one enthusiast.
Adding to this speculation was a claim by MacRumors that clicking on Memoji characters could reveal an augmented reality mode with three collectible card characters.
Apple well positioned for Ace Web 3.0
While the company has yet to officially confirm the claims, breaking into the NFT space is likely not going to be much of a challenge. Apple has already worked on developing a mixed reality headset with VR and AR capabilities. This makes things even easier for Apple, which has been hard at work in the Memoji segment for the past few years.
Furthermore, the Apple CEO revealed his interest in the cryptocurrency space last year. In fact, he said that he personally invested in cryptocurrencies. He also commented on Apple’s NFT plans.
"NFTs are interesting, but it will take time to develop in a way that is for the average person."
However, Cook did not comment on Apple’s cryptocurrency investment plans. He clarified that there are no immediate plans to launch cryptocurrency-related offerings. Additionally, Cook revealed at the time that there may be different things Apple is looking into in space.
Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference will take place virtually from June 6-10. The event could lead to the revelation of new developments in a number of Apple products. New devices and software models like iPadOS 15, MacOS Monterey, watchOS 8 and iOS 15 may emerge.
