OpenSea to allow developers to host NFT drops directly on the home page

OpenSea, the creator of the digital marketplace for crypto collectibles and non-perishable tokens (NFTs), has launched a new initiative to make it easier to create and distribute NFTs on the marketplace.

As part of this new immersive initiative, creators can launch their NFT collections with their own customizable landing pages, which the company hopes will enable greater visibility and presence on the marketplace’s new homepage. Under customizable dropdown pages, creators now have the ability to share images and videos, provide group highlights, list roadmaps, and more. According to the announcement:

“The dropped pages include information about the drop, the leak schedule, the countdown clock and of course – the NFT gallery. We also allow collectors to set email alerts or add them to their calendars to remind them when to return to the Mint.

Project drops on Openea will also have access to SeaDrop, a new secure open source smart contract that streamlines the drop experience, saving developers time and money to create their own custom smart contracts. Openea shared:

Creating a secure smart contract that can handle multi-step drops is one of the most important and technically complex parts, and now developers can skip this step entirely using SeaDrop.

In August, Cointelegraph reported a drop in Openea’s volume, with a significant drop in daily and monthly transactions on the platform. The marketplace went from processing $405.75 million worth of transactions on May 1st to processing $5 million worth of NFT transactions on August 28th.
