SOL is the native currency of the Solana blockchain. You’ll need to obtain some SOL in order to buy Solana items using OpenSea. First, you’ll want to ensure you’re logged into a Solana-compatible wallet, such as Phantom or Glow.
Let’s learn more!
Adding SOL through your OpenSea wallet sidebar
You can add SOL by clicking on your Wallet icon, located on the top-right of OpenSea. You'll see a blue Add Funds button.
You can transfer funds from an exchange, or from another wallet, to the wallet address connected to your Solana OpenSea account.
Copy your wallet address by clicking the Copy button, and use the same address to send crypto from your exchange or another wallet. You can also consult the FAQ for each exchange below.
Depending on where you live, you may also be able to buy more SOL with your credit card using MoonPay.
