In addition, Lens V2 introduces Profiles V2, a powerful feature that treats profiles as wallets, empowering NFTs with social relationships and monetization opportunities. ERC-6551 token standard support allows value from 'mints' and 'collects' to be accrued to profiles, further reinforcing individual ownership and control over content.
