OpenSea, the digital marketplace for crypto collectibles and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), aims to make it easier for content creators to create and distribute NFTs in the marketplace.
So now creators can showcase their NFT collections on their own customizable and dedicated drop pages. The company hopes this will give them better visibility on the new marketplace homepage and make it easier to find. Creators can now share images and videos, upload team highlights, outline development plans and more on customizable drop pages. The announcement states:
“The Drop pages contain information about the Drop, the coin schedule, a countdown clock and of course an NFT gallery. We also want to give collectors the option to set up notifications via email or add them to their calendar to to remind when the relief begins.”
Project drops on Opensea also get access to SeaDrop, a new, secure, open-source smart contract that simplifies the drop experience and saves content creators the time and technical effort of creating their own smart contracts. Open sea explained:
“Developing a secure smart contract that can organize dropouts in multiple phases is one of the most important and technically complex elements. Now content creators can skip this step entirely with SeaDrop.”
In August, Cointelegraph reported that Opensea’s volume has plummeted. The daily and monthly transactions on the platform have plummeted. While the marketplace was still processing $405.75 million in transactions on May 1, it was down to just $5 million in NFT transactions on August 28.
