But, is the integration news really a secret? The video featured past tweets about the possible integration. The hint about possible future Solana integration was first brought to light by blogger and hacker Jane Manchun Wong. She posted screenshots showing OpenSea’s Chains Filter displaying Solana as an option in January.
According to Wong’s tweet, “OpenSea is working on Solana integration, as well as @Phantom wallet support.”
Sol, the native token of Solana, responded positively to the news, maintaining its 7 days upward trend with a 9.5% surge in the past 24 hours, according to data on CoinMarketCap.
