Two recent developments about OpenSea. Firstly, on September 19, they introduced some new features for creators regarding immersive and secure experience. Creators will soon be able to launch their collections with dedicated drop pages and get greater discoverability on the new homepage. Collectors will now be able to mint directly from an OpenSea page. And finally every drop 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.
Secondly, a few days later OpenSea twitted that they were launching OpenRarity, a protocol that provides verifiable mathematical rarity calculations for NFTs within its platform.
Rare NFTs will be given lower numbers like 1 or 2, while NFTs that have similar attributes with other NFTs will have higher numbers. This way collectors would be able to rely on a “rarity ranking” when purchasing NFTs. Creators themselves would be choosing whether they want to apply this new feature to their collections or not. To launch this initiative OpenSea collaborated with various NFT community entities, including Curio, icy.tools, and Proof. We continue to observe and will keep you posted for further updates.
