NFT marketplace OpenSea migrates to the Seaport protocol. Nansen launches beta version of its Web3 chat app Nansen Connect. NFT’s biggest event NFT.NYC 2022 kicks off.
- Leading NFT marketplace OpenSea announced its migration to Seaport Protocol, which aims to cut down gas fees by 35% and is estimated to save users up to 138,000 ETH in total. This will replace its less-efficient Wyvern protocol and will host new features such as bulk listing feature (list multiple NFTs for sale and only pay for one gas fee), as well as adding more than one payout address for sales and royalties in the future.
- Blockchain analytics platform Nansen recently launched Nansen Connect, its very own Web3 messaging app. Currently in beta, this new platform is touted to rival Discord to become the main chat app for NFT and crypto communities.
- NFT.NYC 2022 is the biggest event to date this year for NFTs, bringing together some of the biggest artists, builders, and sponsors in the space. Dubbed as the “CES (Consumer Electronics Show) for NFTs”, this 4-day annual industry event hosts a series of panels, workshops, pop-up galleries, and innovative showcases curated for NFT traders and enthusiasts.
- LooksRare recorded -5% and -9% decreases in sales and transactions, respectively. OpenSea‘s sales and transactions were also negative, at -85% and -84%, respectively.
