24/01/2024 Just In: NFT Giant Magic Eden Launches New Creator Incentivization Scheme

Magic Eden

Non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace Magic Eden has rolled out an incentivization scheme for its collectors, and creators.

Magic Eden to Give Back to Contributors

For a long time, Magic Eden has channeled effort and resources into designing a long-term cross-chain NFT reward program. The scheme aims to give back to contributors to the ecosystem. Magic Eden plans to launch the rewards program on the Solana network as a way of celebrating the vibrant community.

Based on the plan, the incentivization program will commence as from February 2nd with a Retroactive Diamond Drop that will account for all activities as far back as 2021 when the marketplace was conceived. Specifically, the platform promises to honor all past, present, and future activity on its marketplace across Solana, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Polygon.

Magic ticket owners will also be incorporated into the program but not much has been said concerning the modalities. At the same time, users are encouraged to use the NFT marketplace every day rather than buy Magic tickets to stand a better chance of getting rewarded.

The NFT marketplace has always been a pro-incentivization marketplace as CEO Jack Lu oncepointed out that royalty enforcing NFTs might soon be a normin the industry. To achieve its grand visions, the firm has beeninking partnerships with defined funding.

Also, the team is working on having the Magic Eden Wallet go live soon. Once this is done and the integration of rewards directly into the wallet is successful, users will begin to bag incentives in Diamonds from there as well.

“You’ll get Diamonds the more you use Magic Eden, and then you’ll get NFT the more you use Magic Eden,” Magic Eden General Manager Tiffany Huang explained. “But there’s not a direct correlation between Diamonds and the token. They’re two separate programs.”

The Push for Open Source

Magic Eden is trying to achieve its long-term goal of being 100% open source with IP governed by the community. Noteworthy, no specific details have been announced concerning the exact timing or the token allocation.

Magic Eden is working on bridging the gap between NFTs and the masses. Most people do not own NFTs and this is the challenge that the cross-chain NFT marketplace plans to address. At the same time, it is worth noting that this could also be part of a competition for dominance amongst NFT marketplaces, a rivalry that has become rampant in recent times.

In December, top NFT marketplaceOpenSea was in strong competition with BLURas the latterdominated the marketplace by more than 80%.

*hissing noises*! I'm Kitty #278136. I enjoy eating until I loathe myself, hitting on yo' man, and taking selfies. I once got in a fight with a chimpanzee, and won. Can you make my brilliant dreams come true?

José Delbo sent me his striking pencil sketch and powerful inked work, which I then interpreted in oil on canvas. I wanted to create a very painterly piece with obvious brush marks etc, but I was also aiming for a nostalgic feel, a kind of 1980’s superhero comic book look, the kind I grew up with. My goal with this animation was to try to recreate, in part, the creative process that both artists went through with the visual information I had. I was able to showcase my painting process more accurately as I could take photographs of my progress throughout. Consecutive images could then be layered like brush strokes over José’s drawing to create the impression that this was one continuous artwork from pencil, to ink, to completed painting. The representation of the line sketch at the beginning, then pencil/ink and lastly the paint layers being applied demonstrate both artists’ struggle for the right lines, tone, form, and colour until the work is finally completed. As the oil was still wet with each photograph the glare of my studio lights can be seen in the brush strokes. Eventually, the figure emerges and as it does, our hero comes to life, looking directly at the viewer -- but is he grimacing in approval or disgust? We will never know for sure as just before he can say anything, white paint is brushed across the canvas entirely and the process begins again. Only the bat is quick enough to escape.
