OpenSea Allows Creators to Host NFTs on its Homepage
Creators can launch their NFTs on the homepage giving them visibility and searchability.
OpenSea's Homepage will House Drops from Creators
OpenSea, the largest NFTs marketplace, has developed an initiative to allow creators to mint and publish their NFTs on its marketplace. This opportunity allows creators to launch their collections on distinct pages, providing greater visibility and searchability on the homepage. In addition, creators can upload images, and videos, provide highlights, and share roadmap and other necessary information using the drop pages.
OpenSea, via a public announcement, said,
"Drop pages will include information about the drop, the minting schedule, a countdown clock, and of course – an NFT gallery. We'll also allow collectors to set alerts via email or add to their calendar to remind them when to return to mint."
SeaDrop and NFT Minting
Project drops on OpenSea will be able to access SeaDrop, a 'new secure open-source smart contract' that will improve the drop experience, saving time and technicalities which are instrumental in making custom smart contracts.
"Developing a secure smart contract that can orchestrate multi-stage drops is one of the most important and technically complex elements, and now creators can skip this step entirely by using SeaDrop,"
Collectors can also mint when they connect directly with their wallet providers. Thus, they don't need to leave the page or use another third-party website. Allowlists can also use Drops on OpenSea. The marketplace will launch its first drop with omgKirby and Channel Tres on September 22, after which a web3 calendar for future drops will feature talents like Anthony Hopkins, Warner Music Group, and so on.
OpenSea's trade volume continues to fluctuate as announced in August that the marketplace had massively plummeted in daily and monthly transactions. It saw a dip in transactions from 405.75 million on May 1 to $5 million worth of NFT transactions on August 28.
