A hack of a third-party service provider caused Magic Eden to display "unsavory images" in place of innocuous NFT listings.

Temporary Display of ‘Unsavory Images’

Magic Eden users complained about nude photos showing up in the NFT marketplace on Jan. 3, as well as -- what’s arguably worse -- screenshots from The Big Bang Theory sitcom. Magic Eden blamed the display of “unsavory images” on a hack of a third-party service provider.

Users who prefer not to see topless women or TV nerds should do a hard refresh of their browsers, according to a Magic Eden tweet.

The Solana Non-Fungible Token (NFT) marketplace has seen an uptick in activity over the past month, in terms of Unique Active Wallets (UAW), Transactions and Volumes, according to DappRadar. Magic Eden is the top dApp on Solana, with more than 136,000 UAW in the past 30 days, more than double its nearest competitor.

Among NFT marketplaces on any chain, Magic Eden is second only to OpenSea in terms of users.

What is Magic Eden:

Magic Eden is a Solana Network NFT platform that facilitates the buying, selling, and minting of NFTs. The NFT transactions are very similar to Ethereum transactions, except that users will have a 0% listing fee and only a 2% transaction fee, lowering the entry barriers for both new and experienced NFT buyers and creators. SOL tokens are the fee payment method. With a market share of more than 90% in secondary trading volume on Solana, Magic Eden offers the most liquidity to creators.
