Context App Makes NFT Trading Feel Like Instagram

By Jason Nelson

Have you ever wondered which NFTs Twitter influencers, TikTok traders, and DAO members are actually trading? A new Web 3.0 app called Context has made tracking that data a lot easier.

Launched in beta on Friday, Context feels like Instagram or Pinterest for non-fungible tokens. It lets you search for NFT collections, artists, and DAOs like Friends with Benefits.

Context is a new service that makes it easy to see what’s happening on Web3.

And it goes into beta….. right now ✨

“Our vision is to create a community-powered contextual layer for Web3,” wrote Context co-founder Adam Ludwin.

Unlike other NFT wallet trawlers like Nansen, Context is free. Once you’ve connected a MetaMask wallet and selected a username, you can search the platform’s database, follow your favorite artists, and share and bid collections.

Context’s stream of NFTs is also very pretty—especially once you’ve found a collector with good taste. The app indexes Ethereum NFTs and includes market data, like reserve prices and bids, from marketplaces such as OpenSea, Rarible, and Larva Labs’ CryptoPunks.

Context was created by former Stripe software engineer Luke Miles and Chain and Pogo Financial co-founder Adam Ludwin. Ludwin was the president of a short video app called Byte, which Discord acquired earlier this year.

i’ve spent most of 2021 working on @context – today it’s finally out. connect your wallet and we’ll show you a feed of people you care about.
