Solana to support OpenSea Marketplace in April, Ross Ulbricht launches new NFT collection… and more

Solana (SOL) NFT holders will soon have a new option to trade: OpenSea has hinted at its integration of the Solana blockchain.

A 16-second video shared by the OpenSea Twitter account opens with the phrase “when are you alone???” which is typed into a search box and reveals that Solana will be market supported in April.

Rumors that OpenSea will add support for Solana NFTs have been circulating for months. Security researcher Jane Manchun Wong – who made Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for her high-level tech leak scoops – shared images on Twitter in January that she claimed came from the OpenSea platform.

The images show the market’s “blockchain filter” showing Solana as an option and the Phantom Solana crypto wallet in a list of supported wallets..

Open Sea answered sheepishly at Wong’s tweet with a “wide eyes” emoji at the timebut neither confirmed nor outright denied the authenticity of the claim.

Many popular Solana NFT projects have announced their intention to list with OpenSea in Aprilamong them SolPunksTurtles, Remnants and Degenerate Ape Academy.

Solana integration will put OpenSea in direct competition with Magic Eden, Solanart and Solseathe current leading NFT marketplaces on the Solana blockchain.

Bug or hack? A Bored Ape NFT sells for $140

An OpenSea user by the name of “cchan” has sold a Bored Ape NFT and a Mutant Ape NFT for a combined value of $140.

A user made offers for the NFTs that were accepted by cchan and the sales were made within a minute of each other on Monday, March 28; BAYC #835 sold for 115 DAI, and MAYC #11670 sold for 25 DAI, which is 99% below the current floor price.

DAI is a US dollar stablecoin with a diamond logo and it is unknown if cchan mistook the offers for Ethereum (ETH), which would have been the equivalent of $470,000, or if the sales were the result of a hack.

The activity of the user who bought the NFTs shows a history of bids made in DAI on Bored and Mutant Ape NFTs, which some have suggested could be in hopes of this exact set of circumstances..
