Report: Solana (SOL) Becoming a Force to Challenge Ethereum in NFT Markets

“Although Ethereum has historically been the primary blockchain for NFTs, Solana has been growing as a viable alternative for new NFT projects due to relatively low gas fees and low barriers to entry.


“Magic Eden, the leading marketplace for Solana-based NFTs, has seen a record influx of traders due to the launch of many successful Solana-based collections like Okay Bears. The Solana marketplace DApp boasts 0% listing fees and only 2% trading fees. This quarter, Magic Eden accounted for 10% of all NFTs transactions.”
