'MONDAY': Magic Eden Hinted That Next Week Will Be Anything But Boring. Here's What We Know:
It will be another insane Mutant Monday in the Web3 world after Magic Eden appears to have teased that its cross-chain wallet and marketplace will be launching on January 29th!
On Friday, Magic Eden shared a 13-second teaser trailer featuring a Magic Eden Wallet emblem followed by Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, and Bitcoin’s logos and the date ‘1-29-24.’
“Monday.” The marketplace tweeted.
Yesterday’s post comes just days after Magic Eden shared a teaser trailer for its cross-chain marketplace and wallet featuring the Bored Ape Yacht Club's mascot, Curtis, and several other familiar faces from the Web3 world!
Since then, Magic Eden has also teased its reward program, which will benefit everyone using the various chains. Additionally, the marketplace announced that it will support the Non-Fungible DAO by open-sourcing and contributing all of its NFT trading and minting protocols to it.
While we do not know exactly what the marketplace plans to announce or release on Monday, we do know that an Ethereum based royalty enforced marketplace have been in the works between Magic Eden and Yuga Labs for a while.
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Yuga Labs Co-Founder Garga first announced that Yuga Labs was collaborating with Magic Eden on a royalty enforced Ethereum marketplace at ApeFest 2023, following Opensea’s decision to make all Creator Royalties optional by February 29th, 2024.
"It sucks that a lot of marketplaces have turned their backs on the creators that helped build the platforms over the past two years,” Garga said to the club. “And one of the most frustrating parts of that is the flipflopping. There’s a whole sea of marketplaces that want to support creators and then not the next. So it goes us thinking what would it be like if we could get one of these marketplaces to legally, contractually, and bindingly support creators in perpetuity. And that’s why I’m pretty stoked to have our sponsor magic Eden here.”
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow Magic Eden and will let you know what they announce on Monday. Stay tuned for updates!
