This is a continuation article from our previous research on Solsea. Today, we’re looking at what Solsea is exactly. We’ll also learn how to verify and list NFTs there, and how to use its features and website. 

What Is Solsea?

Solsea is an open NFT marketplace on the Solana blockchain. However, they’re not simply just a place where buyers and sellers meet. They also have a list of other features. These include:

  1. Support for NFT-PRO. This is a form of embedded license for NFTs.
  2. Compatibility with SPL token standard. This ensures all NFTs on Solana can be traded on Solsea.
  3. Support for minting NFTs. This allows digital art creators to mint their own NFT on Solsea.

How to Verify NFTs on Solsea?

Now, other than the above features, they’re also able to help verify NFTs! This is important since you do not want to be caught minting or buying a fake NFT.

To combat NFT Fraud, they verify their collections and creators. Once the NFT and its collection are verified, a blue check mark will appear as shown below. This provides buyers assurance that their purchases on their marketplace are authentic.

How to List NFTs in Solsea?

Well, if you’re a digital art creator, then what I’m about to show should interest you! As a marketplace, Solsea would allow sellers like yourself to exchange your work for $SOL.

Here are the steps to follow to list your NFT:

  1. First, you have to get a wallet and fund it with $SOL. If you do not have a Solana wallet, I would recommend their Phantom wallet.
  2. Next, you’d have to register with your email to create a profile. This step is pretty straightforward. You could either click the “Register” link on the top right hand of the main webpage. Remember to check off the “I am a creator” box!

Solana has no lack of NFT marketplaces. With Solana being one of the top NFT ecosystems, Solsea has a lot of competition. These include the likes of Magic Eden, Solanart, and many others. Whether you’re an NFT buyer or seller, it’s up to you which marketplace you prefer to use. However, it remains to be seen which NFT marketplace will dominate the Solana ecosystem.
