OpenSea has made many changes, and recently it revamped the homepage of the NFT marketplace. The NFT marketplace is the largest NFT platform by sales volume as statistics show OpenSea has settled $32.34 billion in all-time sales.
On Tuesday, September 19, the company disclosed, the marketplace is affixing new features that aim to offer ‘an immersive and secure minting experience’ for NFT creators. OpenSea has added three essential features:
- NFT creators can now float their collections with dedicated drop pages in a more prominent way on the (new) OpenSea homepage.
- Collectors will now be able to strike directly from an OpenSea page.
- A new secure open-source contract supporting the drops experience has been introduced, through which drops on OpenSea will have an access to Seadrop; which will hinder the custom smart contracts.
OpenSea has also revealed, the NFT marketplace will support Arbitrum, the Ethereum-compatible (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. Furthermore, the company said in a tweet, “Starting Wednesday, creators will be able to set fees associated with selling NFTs on the network.”
Recently, the NFT marketplace competitor, Rarible announced its unification with Immutable X, another L2 scaling effort compatible with Ethereum. Opensea’s latest additions follow the migration to Seaport, an open-source Web3 marketplace protocol.
