One NFT Display Frame to Rule them All?
Where do we start with this one? We knew it was coming, we’re surprised and delighted it happened so quickly. QONOS has announced the “world’s first custom digital frame for NFT art and collectables.”
From Beeple to LeBron, display your investment the way it deserves: on Qonos
While we can’t formally comment on all the features of the Qonos NFT Display, a key differentiator is that they allow you to display your actual NFT collection as well as many other NFT pieces of art. Meural and Samsung Frame offer a similar service that comes via subscription but only focuses on classical art. Candidly, we like the ability of collectors and fans to display curated NFTs agnostic of ownership as long as attribution is handled properly.

*Skepticism around 1080p display is currently unwarranted as we’ve seen many displays handle digital art. we will pixel peep when we get a unit for review.
NFT Display Delays
The massive influx of nft collectors, agnostic to source (we’re looking at you Top Shot) have already created massive demand for every type of display. We are already seeing shortages on the aforementioned Samsung Frame, it’s primary competitor in meural, and the opensource options available via Raspberry Pi.
Currently, the QONOS displays are experiencing massive delays, their small version will ship in 6-8 weeks while the larger 24” version is delays as much as 12 weeks to 4 months.
NFT Bottom Line
If you’re willing to spend thousands of dollars on NFTs and don’t mind a short delay, the QONOS is a gamble, but a good one. As we’ve stated we haven’t been able to get our hands on a review unit yet, but QONOS shows promise. Plus the fact that they incorporate a sleek and elegant design that fully embraces and NFT first eco-system makes the risk worth it. As we learn more, we’ll let you know.
