Opensea Supports Solana Non-fungible Tokens 

It has been announced that OpenSea, the most popular non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace, will now offer NFTs powered by the cryptocurrency Solana ($SOL), in addition to those powered by Ethereum.

As stated in a blog post released on April 6 by the OpenSea team, “Solana has risen to become one of the fastest growing NFT ecosystems in the world, and is one of the most often requested chains by the OpenSea community.”

On OpenSea, Solana beta support has been revealed, allowing users to purchase, trade, and transfer Solana-based non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the platform.

The relationship with Solana, according to the platform, would bring a new set of “interesting projects and creative communities” to the NFT marketplace, among other benefits.

The beta is now being tested with 165 launch partners, but the company’s ultimate objective is to “bring Solana’s whole creative community into OpenSea as soon as we possibly can.” Through their official Discord channel, OpenSea is inviting users to participate with the beta and give comments and debate.

The company is hoping that people will be able to assist them with identifying “the Solana creators and collections” that should be included next.

Users who want to join in the beta will need to get a Solana-compatible wallet, such as Phantom or Glow, in order to take part in the test.

The wallet may then be linked to OpenSea, allowing it to list and acquire Solana-based NFTs on the open market.

Using the “Explore Collections” option, OpenSea users may explore the highlighted collections of Solana NFTs, and then buy or make a bid on any of the NFTs that are listed on the marketplace.
