The largest non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace by sales volume, Opensea, has announced a new “immersive and secure minting experience” by giving NFT creators the ability to showcase “collections with dedicated drop pages and greater discoverability” on Opensea’s new homepage. On Tuesday, Opensea also revealed that its NFT marketplace would soon include support for the Layer 2 (L2) protocol Arbitrum.
Opensea announces improvements to NFT drop and support for Arbirtum L2
Opensea has made a number of changes and it just recently revamped the NFT market’s homepage. Opensea is the biggest NFT marketplace by volume, with statistics showing that it has sold $32.34 million in total sales. On September 19, the company announced the marketplace is adding new features that aim to offer an “easier, safer and more immersive” new drop experience. Opensea now offers three new features:
- Creators can soon launch collections using dedicated drop pages.
- Now collectors can mint direct from Opensea pages.
- Drops on Opensea will have access to Seadrop, a new, secure open source contract that powers the drops experience so that creators don’t need to create custom smart contracts.
Opensea is also available. revealedThe NFT Marketplace will soon support Arbitrum (the Ethereum-compatible layer 2 (L2)) blockchain network. “We’re excited to share that Opensea will soon support Arbitrum,” Opensea said on Tuesday. “This is a first step in building our goal of a web3 future where people have access to the NFTs they want on the chains they prefer,” the company added.
The plan is to launch Opensea’s Arbitrum support on September 21, and following the launch “creators will need to find their collections in Opensea and set their creator fees directly,” Opensea explained. Opensea, which has integrated with Polygon’s Solana marketplace, has opened its doors to potential new blockchains.
Just recently, the NFT marketplace competitor Rarible announced integration with Immutable X, another L2 scaling effort that’s compatible with Ethereum. Opensea’s latest additions follow the migration over to Seaport, an open-source Web3 marketplace protocol.
