Key Takeaways

  • Leading NFT marketplace Opensea recently launched Seaport, a new marketplace protocol that allows users to trade their NFTs with assets other than just payment tokens. According to its blog post, individual NFTs could be specified in a trade, which opens up a new trading experience for NFT holders.  
  • E-commerce platform eBay is launching the Genesis NFT collection, a series of animated 3D renditions of iconic athletes who graced the cover of Sports Illustrated throughout the years. This is in partnership with green NFT marketplace OneOf, which announced in February that it acquired the rights to repurpose SI’s images and offer them as collectibles. 
  • Video game retailer and meme stock company GameStop launched the beta version of its browser-based non-custodial wallet, which lets users securely store, send, and receive cryptocurrencies and NFTs across a wide range of decentralised apps without having to exit their browser tab. This is in line with its plans to launch a gaming-themed NFT marketplace around Q2 2022.  
  • LooksRare recorded a -42% decrease in sales and a +51% jump in transactions from last week. Meanwhile, OpenSea recorded a -32% decrease in sales and a +88% jump in transactions.
