Ethereum NFTs (ETH) are now available on FTX US
After introducing Solana’s NFTs (SOL) on its platform, FTX US opens up non-fungible Ethereum tokens. What to attack the biggest market of the moment and grab some market share from competitors?
Ethereum NFTs land on FTX US
A little less than a month ago, the FTX US platform announced opening up to Solana NFTs (SOL). The blockchain defended tooth and nail by Sam Bankman-Fried had taken priority, but we already knew that NFT Ethereum would soon arrive on the FTX marketplace.
It’s now done. FTX announced yesterday that Ethereum’s NFTs are now available on its NFT services:
Gm! Ethereum NFTs are live on https://t.co/IER7ate2sU!
We’re excited to expand our NFT marketplace, allowing users to buy, sell, and display their Ethereum NFTs alongside their Solana NFTs for the first time! Probably nothing. pic.twitter.com/DREqxvNDVc

On the FTX US site, we now see the most popular Ethereum NFTs of the moment, including Bored Ape, Pudgy Penguins, or even Meebits. As with the non-fungible Solana tokens, these are only available on the US version of the site. Users elsewhere will – for now – be content with NFTs produced directly on FTX US.
More and more options for NFT enthusiasts
FTX will have a ways to go if it wants to compete with OpenSea: NFT’s largest marketplace surpassed $ 10 billion in volume last November. However, we note that competitors have been accumulating recently: more centralized platforms are choosing to offer tools for buying and selling non-fungible tokens.
Last October, this was the case with Coinbase, and Crypto.com dedicated itself to the field as early as March 2021. In addition, the gradual arrival of “Ethereum killers” on the market should also diversify the offer made to investors.
