OpenSea announced the news with a brief teaser video on its official Twitter account, mocking the barrage of tweets about intentions to bring in Solana.


Solana support will be available in April, according to the video, which OpenSea tweeted is about "the greatest kept secret in Web3." Although no date was given, the month begins on Friday.


With a market cap of $1.5 billion over its several collections, Solana is the second-largest NFT ecosystem behind Ethereum.


Last fall, the Solana NFT space exploded thanks to new releases including Solana Monkey Business, Degenerate Ape Academy, and Aurory. Solana's transactions are faster, cheaper, and more energy-efficient than Ethereum's mainnet.



The first signs of a possible Solana incorporation into OpenSea surfaced in January, when renowned hacker and blogger Jane Manchun Wong spotted mentions of Solana and the popular Phantom wallet in various portions of the site.


She spotted signs that the Solana launch was approaching this week, including a "Solana Beta" logo on the site and support for the Solflare wallet.


Others on social media recently discovered that they could connect a Phantom wallet to OpenSea, despite the fact that the NFTs themselves aren't yet available.
