The multi-chain world of NFTs is becoming even closer as the two giants finally merge.
OpenSea Opens to BNB Chain NFTs
The new connection unites the largest blockchain by active users and wallets with the largest NFT marketplace by volume. A press release shared with BSC News confirmed that BNB Chain NFTs will launch on OpenSea’s Seaport Protocol in Q4 2022.
“Our goal is to give the best in class experience to NFT creators and users, and this is a significant step in that direction as BNB Chain NFTs will now be available for listing and sale on OpenSea, the world’s largest NFT marketplace by volume,” said BNB Chain Investment Director Gwendolyn Regina in the release. “The integration will bring a large number of creators into the wider system, as well as empower the creators and NFT initiatives inside the BNB Chain ecosystem.”
The integration will surely bring more users to OpenSea from the BNB Chain NFT community, with many projects likely vying for the treasured place to be listed on the massive marketplace. BNB Chain’s blockchain technology will also give OpenSea users access to the quick and affordable trading ability available through the popular blockchain.
“We’re delighted to begin leveraging Seaport across multiple blockchains, including BNB Chain, to better the OpenSea experience for everyone,” added Jeremy Fine, Head of Business and Corporate Development at OpenSea. “This update will make it simpler to reach even more users and creators on the chains they prefer.”
Creators and users alike should benefit from the new integration. The long-awaited merger between two previously distant parties should be a welcome sight for NFT users across all chains.
