OpenSea to Start Listing Solana NFTs

After months of speculation, OpenSea has finally confirmed the rumors that it will add NFTs minted on the Solana blockchain to the platform.

The leading NFT marketplace did so through a 16-second teaser video, acknowledging the multitude of tweets over the past few months about the impending news. No specific date for this move was announced, but it is expected to occur sometime in April.

Solana is the second-largest NFT blockchain behind Ethereum. OpenSea’s competitors have taken advantage of the platform’s lack of support for SOL NFTs, and by making this change, the marketplace hopes to continue cementing its spot as the leader in the industry.

Many prominent Solana NFT collections have acknowledged this groundbreaking move, expressing their excitement on Twitter:

Solana has risen in popularity throughout the NFT community due to its energy-efficient transactions and cheaper products compared to Ethereum.
