With the partnership, NFTs will be able to connect to or from the Aptos network. With this partnership, users will now be able to send NFT assets directly to the Aptos network from any blockchain network.

Considering that the NFT sector is developing day by day, we can say that this partnership is very significant. In addition, the biggest problem for NFTs is that it is difficult to transfer between different blockchains. The partnership is good news for the NFT industry, and for Aptos users, it means a more accessible and easier-to-use environment. Mo Shaikh, Co-Founder and CEO of Aptos Labs, said:

“With the Aptos NFT bridge, Wormhole brings a new level of interoperability to the network. Aptos welcomes millions of assets, thousands of creators and artists from across the many chains accessible via this bridge.”

How Will NFT Bridge Work?

With the NFT bridge feature, Wormhole allows NFTs to be transferred between supported blockchains while preserving their metadata. The blockchain owned by the NFT is protected, and if the user wants to transfer it to a blockchain other than the blockchain owned by the NFT, the following steps will take place;

  • The NFT gets locked up in the NFT bridge smart contract.
  • An equivalent wrapped NFT is minted into a corresponding collection on the destination chain

Wrapped NFTs have the same name, the same look, and the same properties. Wrapped NFTs can also be converted back to their original form.
