Rarible.com Marketplace Integrates Solana Blockchain

Rarible.com, which claims to be the leading multi-chain non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace, announced its integration with the Metaplex Protocol, a protocol built on Solana for NFTs, “to enable support for the Proof-of-History (PoH) and popular NFT-favorite blockchain, Solana.”

The integration “enables Rarible.com users to explore and trade NFT collections within the vast Solana ecosystem and furthers the platform’s mission towards a seamless, interoperable NFT experience across multiple chains for all marketplace users.”

Rarible’s integration of the Metaplex Protocol “makes Solana the sixth blockchain platform now supported by the marketplace, alongside Ethereum, Flow, Polygon, Tezos, and Immutable X.”

As the NFT ecosystem continues to expand and diversify, Rarible’s support for Solana “will enable NFT users to easily explore collections across all major chains, in one place.”

Alex Salnikov, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Rarible, said:

“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 favorite collections all in one place regardless of their chain of origin. We are thrilled to announce this integration with the Solana ecosystem and finally offer our Rarible.com marketplace community easy access to the many innovative collections and projects within the Solana community.”

The Solana ecosystem has been “at the forefront of innovation and creativity in the NFT space for some time, with the rise of popular NFT collections such as Degenerate Ape Academy and DeGods.”

Earlier this year, the Rarible Protocol – a white-label solution which enables the creation of fully customized NFT experiences, “separate from the Rarible.com marketplace – also integrated with the Solana blockchain.”

The integration “enabled popular Solana-based collections, such as Degenerate Ape Academy, to launch their very own customized marketplaces powered by the Rarible Protocol and Metaplex’s Auction House with low fees and a tailored user experience.”

Ash Pampati, Head of Partnerships at Metaplex Studios, which provides support services for the Metaplex Protocol, remarked:

“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.”

To celebrate the integration, Rarible.com will “allow users to buy and sell Solana NFTs with zero fees for the first month of the integration.’

The marketplace recently “lowered fees to 1% across all compatible chains earlier this year.”
