Understanding Royalties on Magic Eden's EVM Platform

Ensuring fair compensation and protection for creators.

Updated over a week ago

Welcome to Magic Eden's EVM marketplace, where creators are valued, and their work is protected. In this article, we'll explore the essential aspects of royalties on our platform, empowering creators to understand how their work is safeguarded and rewarded.

Royalties enforcement mechanisms

At Magic Eden, we are committed to enforcing royalties to uphold the rights of creators. We utilize Limit Break's Payment Processor v2, a robust royalty-enforcing marketplace protocol. Creators are provided with two options for enforcing royalties:

  • Operator Filter: Enables creators to block non-royalty-respecting marketplaces, ensuring comprehensive royalty protection across the ecosystem.

  • ERC721C v2: Integrates this standard to enforce royalties seamlessly, enhancing the integrity of creators' creations.

Native listings and royalty enforcement

Magic Eden prioritizes royalty enforcement, with 100% of native listings subject to royalty enforcement. While we aggregate listings from other marketplaces for user convenience, it's essential to note that we cannot control royalties on those listings. Creators are advised to block non-royalty-respecting marketplaces to maintain 100% royalty protection.
