NFT Marketplace OpenSea Launches Support for Solana ($SOL) Based NFTs

According to a blog post by the OpenSea team that was published on April 6, Solana has “emerged as one of the fastest growing NFT ecosystems in the world, and is among the most requested chains by the OpenSea community”

The marketplace has announced beta support for Solana, which allows users to buy, sell and transfer Solana-based NFTs on OpenSea

The platform says the collaboration with Solana will provide a new set of “exciting projects and creative communities” to the NFT marketplace. The beta is beginning with 165 launch partners, but their goal is “to welcome Solana’s entire creative community into OpenSea as soon as possible.” OpenSea is asking users to interact with the beta and provide feedback and discussion via their official Discord, hoping that users will be able to help them “the Solana creators and collections” that should be added next.

Users will be required to obtain a Solana-compatible wallet, such as Phantom or Glow, in order to participate in the beta. The wallet can then be connected to OpenSea to list or purchase Solana-based NFTs.

OpenSea customers can browse the featured collections of Solana NFTs via the “Explore Collections” button, and purchase or make an offer on NFTs included on the marketplace.
