OpenSea reportedly working on Solana and Phantom wallet integration

·1-min read

NFT marketplace OpenSea is reportedly working on integrating Solana and native Web3 wallet Phantom to its platform.

The integration was first reported by security researcher Jane Manchun Wong on Twitter, who posted a picture of a login screen for Phantom wallet users to connect with OpenSea.

A second picture posted by Wong also showed that OpenSea’s ‘Chains Filter’ – which lets users select which blockchain they want to trade on – shows Solana as an option alongside Ethereum, Polygon and Klaytn.

In response to the tweet, OpenSea simply replied with a ‘glancing eyes’ emoji, which indicates that Wong’s discovery has credence and could very well be in the works.

OpenSea currently remains the leading NFT marketplace by volume, transactions and number of users – meaning the addition of Solana to OpenSea could lead to a resurgence of interest in the array of Solana-native NFTs available to collectors such as Degenerate Ape Academy and Solana Monkey Business.

Currently, leading Solana NFTs are available on marketplaces such as Solanart, Solsea, Magic Eden and Metaplex – all of which remain Solana-native at this time.

The ecosystem is also well favoured by crypto exchange FTX, which launched a cross-chain NFT marketplace in 2021 to support the growing number of projects available on Solana.

In addition, the blockchain received the seal of approval from legendary boxer Mike Tyson, who recently said he was “all in” on Solana.
