The Magic Eden bitcoin NFT marketplace launched on Tuesday last week and has since established itself as the dominant platform in terms of daily volume. This is the first blockchain that the platform has dominated since beginning its rapid cross-chain expansion from Solana.

The Magic Eden Bitcoin Marketplace launched last week, Zhuoxun Yin, COO and co-founder of Magic Eden said that Bitcoin will “connect us to a deep community of people and a rapidly growing collectibles market thanks to Ordinals.”

Yin said Magic Eden was going to focus on security and transparency given the nascent stage of the bitcoin NFT ecosystem.

“We want to come in with a serious focus on security and transparency while leveraging our brand so that people can feel safe when trading their Ordinals, thus opening up the ecosystem to flourish even more,” added Yin.

Bitcoin NFTs have re-ignited interest in the NFT market sparking the latest rally. In February, Ethereum NFT sales registered a volume of $2,487,837,067 from 2,190,642 trades by 347,236 users.
