How Magic Eden Expands Ordinals

The largest NFT marketplace for selling and trading Solana assets, Magic Eden, today revealed that its incorporating support for Bitcoin Ordinals.

Magic Eden took to Twitter to share the good news about extending its reach to more than Ethereum and Polygon NFTs:

Ordinals represent a relatively novel innovation for Bitcoin, permitting the storage of media on-chain without resorting to smart contracts, as is the case on other chains. Much of the necessary tools are still under construction.

Consequently, the minting, managing, and trading of Ordinals is more complex than on other chains like Ethereum and Solana, primarily due to insufficient infrastructure.

Nevertheless, Magic Eden asserts that its Ordinals marketplace experience will closely resemble what users have come to expect on its platform.

The first Bitcoin Ordinals marketplaces, including ORDX and Generative, launched later in February, with others joining the fray since—including Gamma, a marketplace first established for NFTs on Stacks, a Bitcoin scaling network.

Still, trustless marketplaces, like Magic Eden, represent big step up for Ordinals in terms of security, accessibility, and scalability.
