Expanding on Polygon
Magic Eden’s strategic expansion on Polygon includes not only the innovative aggregation tool but also the enforcement of royalty payments on its Polygon Proof of Stake (PoS) marketplace. In a bid to foster greater integration with Polygon-based projects, the marketplace is also making its Polygon API publicly available.
Magic Eden’s co-founder and CEO, Jack Lu, expressed palpable optimism about the new features:
“We feel like we’re just scratching the surface for what’s possible on Polygon. We hope that by launching and opening up some of these new features, more collectors, creators, and game developers will join us and we can keep growing the Polygon ecosystem together.”
The new tools are expected to not only enrich the NFT trading platform but also significantly contribute to the burgeoning ecosystem of Polygon.
The public release of Magic Eden’s Polygon API also marks a notable move towards greater openness and collaboration within the blockchain space. By allowing other projects to integrate marketplace features seamlessly, the platform is inviting a wave of fresh talent and ideas into the fold.
Magic Eden’s commitment to innovation
The new developments come on the heels of Magic Eden’s initial foray into the Polygon ecosystem in November 2022, when it first introduced support for the Layer 2 Ethereum scaling solution. Starting with existing Polygon NFTs, Magic Eden quickly expanded its services a month later to include the minting and trading of Polygon NFTs, particularly enhancing its web3 gaming asset offerings.
Recently, the leading marketplace announced a new collaboration with Yuga Labs, the parent company of the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC). The partnership entails the creation of a new Ethereum-based NFT marketplace with mandatory royalties.
Magic Eden’s forward-leaning stance and latest features underline the platform’s commitment to innovation in an ever-evolving digital asset market. Collectors and creators on Polygon now have even more reasons to engage with the platform, potentially leading to an uptick in activity and innovation.
The announcement also heralds the company’s broader strategy to diversify its offerings beyond its initial Solana-centric approach, positioning itself as a multi-chain platform. As the NFT marketplace continues to mature, such interoperability will become increasingly critical.
