OpenSea launched in December of 2017. Today, it is the largest NFT marketplace in the world. Now, they just announced that they will add Solana NFTs starting in April 2022. They announced the news on Twitter earlier today (Mar. 29, 2022). Solana would become the fourth blockchain network whose NFTs can trade on OpenSea, after Ethereum, Polygon, and Klaytn.
This move wasn’t entirely unexpected. In January 2022, tech blogger Jane Manchun Wong tweeted that OpenSea was working on Solana integration.
Scumbags founder B. Haley tweeted a similar image showing OpenSea’s blockchain filter featuring Solana in November 2021.
Magic Eden is currently the leading marketplace for Solana NFTs with 414,260 traders and $706 million in total sales volume. Solana is the third-largest blockchain in terms of NFT sales with $1.26 billion sold to 244,107 buyers across more than 1.3 million transactions.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
