NFTs or Non Fungible Tokens are a form of digital art, recorded on a blockchain. Two of the most popular blockchains for NFTs are Ethereum and the Solana Network.

The most used coin for NFT transactions is Ether, the native token of Ethereum. Secondly comes the Solana coin, with way lower transaction costs and higher transfer speed.

OpenSea logo

OpenSea

OpenSea is usually seen as the “go to place” for discovering, collecting and buying NFTs, since it’s the first and biggest marketplace in the NFT world. In the beginning of 2022, mainly Ethereum based NFTs was available at OpenSea and some based on Polygon blockchain. However, in April 2022, Solana was released and some days, it became the most used NFT related blockchain. OpenSea allow you to find interesting NFT drops, which is the same as new NFT collections released. They also have interesting trending categories worth keeping track on, and OpenSea is also the best marketplace to sell NFTs you don’t want anymore.
Why? You can find top collections over the last 24 hours or the last week, month or year at OpenSea. It’s quick and easy to buy, while it’s equality simple to sell your NFTs here.
Main pros: The biggest selection of NFTs. It’s easy to compare and find new NFT collections.
