Leaked images believed to be from leading non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace Opensea indicate that the platform may soon introduce Solana-based NFTs. The images were discovered by tech blogger Jane Manchun Wong, who is well known for leaking information about which features to launch from specific tech platforms.
Tech blogger who discovered yet-to-launch features says Opensea plans to add Solana blockchain support
Opensea, the NFT market leader, is a popular platform that supports Ethereum and Polygon blockchain networks. Opensea has recorded approximately $22.73 billion in NFT sales since the company’s inception, with 1,358,052 merchants leveraging the platform. According to a leaked image from renowned tech blogger and hacker Jane Manchun Wong, Opensea may soon add Solana-based NFTs.
Wong’s discovery is not the first time rumors of Opensea adding Solana have surfaced. Solana host and advocate @bhaleyart tweeted a similar image of Opensea’s blockchain filter in mid-November 2021. Wong is well known for sharing leaked images and posting the results of yet to launch technology platform features. The blogger and tech hacker has been featured in Forbes 30 Under 30 2022.
Solana is the third largest blockchain by NFT sales with $1.26 billion sold to 244,107 buyers out of 1,324,284 transactions. In mid-October, FTX launched an NFT marketplace that first supported Solana-based NFTs, and the exchange later added Ethereum-based NFT support.
The Solana NFT Magic Eden marketplace is the most popular NFT marketplace leveraging the SOL channel today with 414,260 traders and $706 million in total sales volume. Since Polygon fees are much cheaper than Ethereum’s Layer 1 (L1) fees, Opensea trading volume on the Polygon network has much increased since the establishment of the chain. The Solana network fee is negligible compared to the average L1 usage fee of Ethereum.
