What is MagicEden NFT marketplace?
MagicEden launched its marketplace for Solana NFTs in September 2021. MagicEden aims to improve the user experience for listing, buying, and selling NFTs.
Compared to marketplaces for Ethereum NFTs, MagicEden's decision to use the Solana blockchain makes the fees for interacting with NFTs more affordable. Gas fees for using the Solana blockchain are much less than what gas fees can be on Ethereum.
The Solana blockchain is also faster than the Ethereum blockchain. While Ethereum processes roughly 10 to 30 transactions per second, Solana can process up to tens of thousands of transactions per second.
MagicEden also automates the process for provenance and authenticity verification for NFTs.
MagicEden is community-centric in its governance. The company airdropped Magic Tokens to over 30,000 users. These token holders are able to participate in MagicEden's Discord-based DAO where users can interact with the company and earn rewards for their participation.
What is Eden Games?
MagicEden's Eden Games is a hub for crypto online gaming, and the largest marketplace for games on the Solana blockchain.
There are dozens of games you can play on Eden Games, and MagicEden intends to maintain its gaming ecosystem to keep players coming back. Along with that, MagicEden plans to continue to improve the experience for browsing, minting, and trading game-related NFTs.
Eden Games plans to improve the experience for both their iOS and Android apps with the hope of becoming the number one destination for Solana NFT games.
