The e-commerce platform took to Twitter to show off the purchase and asked followers “did I do the profile pic thing right” – in reference to the popular trend on Twitter of changing your profile picture to your favourite NFT.

Shopify’s purchase Adam Bomb Squad #14707 marked the first of three purchases made over the past two days – including a ‘BudVerse Can‘ from Budweiser alongside a Janky from vinyl toy creators ‘SUPERPLASTIC‘ collection.
Shopify has previously embraced NFTs on its platform by allowing merchants to mint and sell their own branded digital collectables using its native Payments and storefront infrastructure.
Available as a beta program to US-based merchants that use Shopify Plus, it offers merchants the choice of popular blockchains like Ethereum, Polygon, Near and Flow alongside an array of payment options including Shopify Payments, Shop Pay, crypto payment gateways and credit/debit cards.
The platform has also previously partnered with Venly to introduce Polygon-based NFT minting and selling to Shopify whilst working with NBA team The Chigago Bulls to launch their debut NFT collection.
