Multi-chain non-fungible NFT marketplace, Rarible.com marketplace has just announced its integration with Metaplex Protocol. The Metaplex protocol is built on Solana which supports for Proof-of-History. With this integration, Rarible is moving inches closer to offering a seamless, cross-chain NFT experience.
Solana Sixth Blockchain Supported by Rarible.com Marketplace
Solana is now the sixth blockchain platform supported by the marketplace.
The integration of Rarible into Metaplex Procol makes Solana the sixth blockchain supported by the marketplace. The other five are Ethereum, Flow, Polygon, Tezos, and Immutable X. As a result, NFT users can now explore collections across multiple blockchains in one place.
The Solana blockchain has quickly gained popularity for its innovation and creativity in the NFT space. With popular collections on the blockchain, such as Degenerate Ape Academy as well as DeGods, growing in sales volume and increasing in creators, this has consistently gone on to cement Solana’s popularity.
According to Allex Salnikov the Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Rarible, “Since its inception, Rarible has been very bullish on the importance of establishing a multi-chain future for the blockchain industry in order to ensure its longevity and long-term success.”
“We are constantly striving towards a multi-chain vision in which all NFT communities across the blockchain industry are no longer siloed; where collectors and creators are free to engage seamlessly with their favourite collections all in one place regardless of their chain of origin.”
In the spirit of celebrating this integration, Rarible users are allowed to buy and sell Solana NFTs with zero fees. This will last for the first month of the integration. Also, the marketplace lowered its fees to 1 percent across all chains earlier this year.
Rarible blazing the trail for open-source, peer-to-peer, and escrow-less trading of NFTs
The Head of Partnerships at Metaplex Studios, Ash Pampati, while speaking on the integration said, “We’re excited to help bring Solana NFTs to life on Rarible. Through this [Rarible x Metaplex Protocol] integration with the Auction House program, Rarible is helping trail-blaze the path forward on open source, peer-to-peer and escrow-less trading of NFTs.”
Earlier this year, the Rarible Protocol was also integrated with the Solana blockchain. The Rarible Protocol differs from the marketplace by being a white-label solution for fully customized NFTs. The integration was key to the creation and expansion of popular Solana collections such as Degenerate Ape Academy.
