OpenSea Updates NFT drops

OpenSea NFT marketplace has introduced an updated interface for NFT Mint pages. A completely new, advanced approach to the minting process will make the user experience more comfortable and safer. Now NFT collection creators can create special NFT drop pages inside the marketplace. Collectors got the opportunity to participate in mint without leaving the NFT interface of the OpenSea marketplace and without going to third-party sites, remaining safe.
Individual drop pages contain all the necessary information about the NFT project, such as the creation schedule, countdown hours, gallery, answers to questions, a description of the minting process, information about the founders of the project. This mechanism is supported by a new smart contract called SeaDrop, which will allow the creators of NFT projects that implement NFT issuance to use a ready-made, secure, tested solution. The OpenSea team has facilitated the launch process and this will save a lot of time devoted to the development of the minta smart contract and focus on creativity and promoting the ideas of the NFT project. Now, thanks to the update of the OpenSea drop screens, the release process is now safer and more exciting!

Why did the NFT marketplace OpenSea Update the DROPs page?

The creation, full launch and promotion of a new NFT project is a complex technical task that requires certain qualifications and logistical support from the creators. The new functionality will allow the creators of NFT projects to focus on the most important tasks. The most important task for each NFT project is to build and develop the user community and create the internal value of the project. With the new update, the creators of NFT projects will be able to use ready-made solutions provided by the NFT marketplace OpenSea and focus on promoting and advertising their NFT collection. This will definitely affect the effectiveness of promotion and lead to the emergence of projects of a radically higher quality level.

What benefits appeared after the update of the OpenSea drops page?

OpenSea implements the most advanced practices and remains the flagship of the NFT industry. By using OpenSea for MINT of your collection, you will enjoy the following benefits:

Dedicated page for creators of NFT collections

Creators of NFT collections can now set up a mint page within the OpenSea NFT marketplace, and get a dedicated collection page. There is a high probability that if your project turns out to be of high quality and users like it, you will be placed on the main page.
Creators of NFT collections are no longer required to find technical specialists and pass security audits. Drops pages on OpenSea will have access to the SeaDrop smart contract, which ensures the functioning and execution of even the most complex MINT logic put into it by the creators.

Whitelists

You can use whitelisted minting process access. Information about the participants is stored decentralized and can always be checked for validity and the presence of various kinds of manipulations. Whitelisting from OpenSea is designed to make the process of initial approval of participants absolutely transparent and understandable for participants in the NFT industry.

Safe environment

OpenSea guarantees a safe environment for NFT marketplace users and conducts security and anti-fraud audits. NFT collectors can be calm and less anxious when checking out an NFT project. A secure environment is the foundation of a good user experience. After the launch of mint, users get the opportunity to mint NFT in one click without leaving the drop page. The Drop page is linked to the SeaDrop smart contract, allowing direct interaction with the minting contract of the collector’s NFT wallet.

 

OpenSea Undertakes Network Expansion

The Web3 space will support many different secure networks. Multi-chain space will allow you to connect various chains and ensure free interaction. In the future, NFT will move freely between blockchains. Ensuring technical implementation is an important mission that the OpenSea team is gradually realizing. The work to increase the number of networks used in the NFT industry is very important for the subsequent globalization of the NFT market and mass adoption. Today, OpenSea supports the main blockchains: Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, Klaytn and plans to expand support for other networks.
