The Solana blockchain-based NFTs are gaining momentum, pushing major NFT marketplaces to their adoption. Currently, following in the footsteps of the recent Solana NFT integration into the OpenSea ecosystem, the leading marketplace's rival Rarible will now support Solana tokens as well.
The long-awaited SOL NFT integration will allow users to buy and sell Solana tokens without any gas fee for a month. After a 30-day promotion period finishes, everyone will have to pay only 1% on every transaction made.
Thus, Solana enters the ever-growing list of blockchains adopted by Rarible, including Ethereum, Flow, Tezos, Polygon's MATIC, Immutable X, and Rarible’s own RARI token, which governs the whole multi-chain ecosystem.
Solana's recent record-breaking achievements make it the second-largest blockchain for NFTs after Ethereum, due to its unique combination of proof-of-history and proof-of-stake protocols.
“We’re excited to help bring Solana NFTs to life on Rarible. Through this integration with the Auction House program, Rarible is helping trail-blaze the path forward on open source, peer-to-peer and escrowless trading of NFTs,” Metaplex Studios Head of Partnerships, Ash Pampati, commented on Rarible's upcoming Solana NFT integration.
While Solana’s addition to OpenSea became a real boon for creators and collectors, the blockchain adoption by Rarible comes as a much-anticipated continuation of the SOL campaign on web3.
