LG introduces NFT Platform for Televisions Based on Hedera Blockchain

Customers will have the possibility to purchase, sell, and display digital artwork on their televisions in the form of NFTs, and will allow them to enjoy the digital art.

The Seoul-based electronics giant LG Electronics has launched a new platform that utilizes the Hedera blockchain to allow the use of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). As a member of the Hedera’s governing council, LG Electronics supports this project. LG Art Lab is the company’s platform that it uses to create art.

A recent announcement indicated that this service will offer customers the ability to purchase, sell, and display digital art on their televisions in the form of NFTs. The launch of LG’s first NFT TV coincides with Samsung’s release of its NFT marketplace on three of its TVs, all of which are supported by the Nifty Gateway platform.

According to LG’s announcement, LG Art Lab is available on televisions running webOS 5.0 and later in the US. Additionally, there are features such as profiles of artists and previews of the upcoming work of those artists, as well as a countdown to upcoming NFT “drops.” The platform’s marketplace enables traders to trade their pieces with other traders.

While many people have heard of NFTs and would like to participate in the growing ecosystem, it can be overly complex and difficult to get started, LG Art Lab is designed to allow millions of users in the US to easily access and display NFTs, without having to interact with code or directly with a blockchain themselves.

Chris Jo, Senior vice president, head of platform business at LG Electronics told TechCrunch

In an announcement earlier in the year, it was announced that LG was planning to include NFT platform technology into its line of smart televisions. Earlier this year, Samsung Electronics made a similar move following a similar decision by its rival company. There is a good reason for this, and that is that LG and Samsung both rank very high in the global TV market in terms of market share. As a matter of fact, LG has led the way in global sales of home appliances last year, with a value of roughly KRW 27.11 trillion.
