It’s been a busy week. Since going live with our Magic Eden Launchpad Alpha cohort, we’ve received a flood of questions from our community about how Launchpad works. This post provides information on Launchpad while keeping in mind this platform is in its nascence and evolving everyday.
The party is just getting started. We’re excited you’re here with us.
We are proud to have launched 2 creators’ work in our Alpha round:
Paragon Art: sold out 35 items in 1 second!
Surging Bulls: sold out 2,000 items in 10 seconds!
Total transaction value from these 2 launches exceeds 2,850 SOL to date. Thank you Paragon Art and Surging Bulls for being fantastic partners with us.
Did you know we also created a Magic Eden podcast to celebrate our creators? Check out their episodes below!
Meet Sean, the creator and founder behind Paragon Art. We discuss how he got started in NFTs mere weeks ago, advice for new creators, and what’s coming next for Paragon Art.
Meet Simon from Surging Bulls, a former trader turned sol NFT maxi.
We are thrilled to share more creators with our growing community over the next few days:
Dates may be subject to change pending ongoing communication and preparation with each project.
If you’ve watched multiple YouTube videos and still find the minting process confusing, you’re not alone. We know that creators have a lot of competing demands between growing their communities, curating metaverse experiences, and — oh yeah — actually creating artwork for their collections. With Launchpad, we focus on the tech, so you can focus on the community.
We built Launchpad to make minting simple, seamless, and secure for creators worldwide. We recently added local language website capabilities for Korean, Japanese, Turkish, and Vietnamese.
Launchpad delivers 4 key benefits to creators:
All creators must complete our Magic Eden Launchpad Submission Form to be considered. For our Alpha cohort, we selected 5 creators from hundreds of applications. To shoot your best shot, read on.
Creators we love:

We will be adding more features to Launchpad as we continue to grow. For our second cohort, we ask that creators be aware of the following requirements:
Timing for cohorts:
For accepted creators, the process for launch involves 3 steps. Our team will be actively engaged throughout to ensure all projects go live smoothly.
If you have questions before submitting your application, please reach out to [email protected] with a subject line “[LAUNCHPAD PRE-SUBMISSION INQUIRY] and your question” and our team will respond to your inquiry as soon as we can (for example: “[LAUNCHPAD PRE-SUBMISSION INQUIRY] project story and goals”).
If you have already submitted your application, please note that we may not be able to provide status updates or decision explanations for each application.
We read through every application and appreciate the time and effort creators put into them. Our process is highly competitive. If you were not accepted into our Alpha cohort, this does not mean we’ll never consider you again. Your application will remain in our pipeline. We welcome you to re-apply at most once per month with more updates on your work. As always, please also join us on Twitter and Discord to keep in touch.
As a side note, we are actively expanding our team across a range of positions, including engineering, business development / partnerships, community management, and marketing.
If you’re interested in joining us, please email [email protected] with the subject line [HIRING INQUIRY] followed by the function(s) you might be interested in. For example, the subject line may be “[HIRING INQUIRY] Engineering”.
Thank you to everyone for your support. We look forward to growing with you.
