InstaFTs (short for Instagram NFTs) is a web app the team at Ramper built during a Hackathon. Using InstaFTs — creators can turn their most liked Instagram posts into NFTs that can be purchased with credit cards.

Our motivation was to explore ways to simplify NFT tooling for creators.

Currently creating NFTs is limited to users with professional IG accounts.
