Magic Eden, the leading Solana-based NFT marketplace, is uniting top NFT projects by integrating their tokens. The platform will begin with Aurory’s token $AURY and DeGods’ token $DUST.
Users Will Be Able To Purchase NFTs On Magic Eden With Aurory and DeGods Tokens
Tiffany Huang, head of content and marketing at Magic Eden stated that you can use the tokens like Solana on the marketplace. Collectors can use AURY and DUST to buy Solana NFTs from any collection on the platform.
“We wanted to get those projects really excited that they could use those tokens on our site. We didn’t see any other marketplace doing this, so we thought it was a huge opportunity.”
Huang said that Magic Eden is talking with Solana “blue chip” NFT creators to integrate their tokens as well. Currently, DUST and AURY are the only ones confirmed. Integrations will probably launch within the next few weeks.

NFT marketplace Opensea had announced two weeks ago that it would begin integrating Solana NFTs onto its platform. Decrypt asked Huang what the impact of OpenSea’s entry into the Solana market might have. She simply replied, “We are excited they’re there,” and stated that they create visibility for NFTs.
Magic Eden would likely be affected by Opensea’s Solana integration. The Solana-based platform can still maintain its unique edge by focusing on the Solana ecosystem. Supporting the platform’s projects, beyond NFTs.
“We know our communities, we know what makes them excited, and we can ship really quickly. The fact that we’re Solana-native and community-oriented is always going to be our advantage.”
