The popular marketplace for Non-Fungible Token (NFT), OpenSea, announced on Monday that it wants to upgrade the platform to become more “immersive” in terms of the minting and drop experience.

One of the updates will be about the ability to launch one’s minting collections directly on an OpenSea page, where there will also be minting information, countdown to the drop, and a gallery to showcase NFTs.

In particular, a new service called SeaDrop will be introduced on OpenSea, a smart contract that will allow creators to mint directly from OpenSea without the need to have a developer help them create custom contracts.

“With our new drops experience, we are providing creators with the technical foundation to mint their projects without compromising creativity. Also, collectors can come to one trusted destination for both minting and future sales and purchases.”

OpenSea launches OpenRarity

OpenSea also recently launched a new protocol for establishing the rarity of NFTs. The platform is called OpenRarity and was created together with the companies behind, Curio Tools and PROOF.

OpenRarity will not only be based on the rarity of the collection itself, but also in general, comparing NFTs against others, for instance by taking into account who created the collection.

The goal is to have a single platform to see the rarity of one’s NFTs. Currently, there are several tools to do this and often the results are different. For its part, OpenRarity wants to become the industry benchmark.

The OpenSea team, stated:

“We believe it’s important to find a way to provide a unified, transparent, and consistent set of rarity rankings across all platforms to help build more trust in the industry through transparency.”
