all you need to know about pfp

A PFP, or Picture of Proof, serves as your profile picture. In the crypto space, you can use NFTs for this. Many collections serve only this purpose. You can use it in a variety of social media: Twitter, Discord, TikTok, and Instagram.

PFPs are popular, as indicated in our first article on the subject. Hence, we answer three questions about PFPs for you. So, without further ado, let’s delve into the subject matter.

Coolest PFP for Discord

There is a whole landscape of websites with lists of the best Discord PFPs. They offer a variety of different PFPs. It will be difficult to not find something to your liking within five minutes at most. 

They help you to stand out on the server. It also catches other users’ attention immediately. Many Discord users put a lot of thought into this, though. It may take a bit more than five minutes before they find the perfect PFP. Overall, it is like your business card. Or an introduction to you. Here are two samples of sites that rank high in Google. One is Remotetools and the other is Whatifgaming.

Be aware that the best size is 128 x 128 pixels. Any other 1:1 size will work as well. So, you can use your fave NFT as your PFP. But, if all this still doesn’t work for you, you can take any picture that you fancy and turn it into a PFP. I use a PFP from my favorite NFT collection on Discord.

Other categories on offer include:

  • Anime
  • Funny images or memes
  • Gaming PFPs
  • TV shows or movie images
  • Trippy
  • Cute
  • Or how about moving PFPs or GIFs?

The sky is the limit, so to speak. The picture below shows my current Discord PFP.

Coolest PFP for Instagram

The list of websites with Instagram PFP ideas seems to be never-ending. Instagram’s users have pages full of PFP ideas. Adobe Express has a page with tips and tricks to get a cool PFP on Instagram. And the list goes on, in a variety of languages as well.

It is similar to choosing a PFP on any other social media platform. Whether it’s Twitter, Discord, or TikTok. You can put great effort and thought in it. Or you keep it simple and easy. In contrast to Discord, on Instagram we do find many personal pictures as PFP. This brings a few more considerations with it. For example:

  • Get the correct template
  • Take a close-up headshot
  • Match your style to your brand

Naturally, you can change this to suit your liking. Instead of a headshot, you can have a picture of you and your partner. However, a few things to keep in mind.

  • Use a clear and high-resolution image
  • Crop it to the correct size
  • Make sure the picture is well lit out
  • Use contrast if you want to stand out

Enjoy and fiddle around until you have the PFP of your liking. The picture below is from an Instagram user and shows some PFP samples.

Good PFP for TikTok

On TikTok, you can let your imagination go wild. Anything goes for a PFP. How about a transparent profile picture? It allows you to watch a movie through your picture. That will catch some attention. And that is what TikTok is all about, right? 

Another popular theme is the default profile picture. It’s not just the dry profile picture, hell no. Get creative and play around with the colors and the overlays. Have fun and go wild.

Once more, there are hundreds, if not more, of TikTok PFP websites out and about. They all explain everything on how to make TikTok PFPs. Here is a sample of such a site. Pinterest is a good place to look. On the other hand, just throw the above header question in a search engine. “Good PFP for TikTok.” It’s astonishing what pops up.
