Interested in Solana NFTs but sure where to start? I got you. The most common wallet choice is @phantom. It’s only available on desktop for now but they’re working on mobile. you can transfer solana in from any CEX. Now what?
There’s no dominant marketplace on solana the large marketplaces are:
(great but new so less volume)
(v solid, decent volume)
(solid ui, less volume)
(just ok, but decent volume)
(where UI designers go to die)
So how do you know where to go or what to buy? If you know the project you wanna buy, go to howrare.is and filter by “for sale” and sort by price to compare across marketplaces. click through to the listing page when you know what you want. if you dont…
you can discover projects here on twitter, or by using projects like
which list volume, price, etc. for larger projects. What about upcoming mints? I prefer using twitter/word of mouth but again, you can find calendars on solanalysis or howrare, etc. minting tips:
transaction costs are much lower here so there’s NO excuse not to use a burner wallet. set up a second wallet to use exclusively for mints and only transfer enough to mint. transaction costs are so low, that margin for error is greater on solana. you can buy/sell for almost 0.
So what should you buy? what are the bluechips? any sure things? not gonna shill here cause the right project is really dependent on your goals. I try to find strong communities, 10x opportunities or both. that said, i’ll answer direct qs via dm if ur nice. hope this helps!
One last common request: if you want a .sol wallet address just head over to
and register there! Easy to do, most addresses run 20-100 bucks
