Which Blockchains will be supported on Instagram?
There are many blockchains that support smart contracts. In fact, Instagram chose the most famous ones and will start with Ethereum and Polygon. However, they also plan to add Flow and Solana.

The short answer is: not likely. The current crypto crash is very harsh, and most cryptos will need a while before recovering.
