When we first built OpenSea, we decided to construct the experience around Ethereum, as a dapp platform and as a currency. It was the simplest option. Because most users already had some ETH, if only to pay gas, it provided an economic lingua franca. And it allowed us to streamline a new and unfamiliar buying experience. But all along, we’ve been excited about the entire token economy and we intend to grow with the maturing ecosystem and userbase.
For the initial ERC-20 rollout, we’re supporting MakerDAO’s Dai, Coinbase’s and Circle’s USDC, and Decentraland’s MANA, but we’ll be adding support for more ERC-20 tokens soon. Join us in our discord server to request your favorite token and be sure to check out our announcement of MANA support.
