The Visa Creator Program will support a selected group of entrepreneurs “deepen their understanding” of the tech and platforms behind NFT commerce.

“NFTs have the potential to become a powerful accelerator for the creator economy,” said Cuy Sheffield, head of crypto, Visa. “We’ve been studying the NFT ecosystem and its potential impacts on the future of commerce, retail and social media.
