OpenSea is one of the most sought-after NFT marketplaces. Even though the NFT market has been on a downhill ride in 2022, 2023 is proving to be slightly better for the non-fungible market.
OpenSea was once the largest NFT marketplace until Blur took its place. Blur dethroned OpenSea as the top NFT trading platform by volume. The details were shared by Crypto Newsletter Milk Road. The data showed that OpenSea’s trading volume was considerably less than that of Blur’s.
As a competitor to its rival, OpenSea has unveiled a new NFT marketplace called OpenSea Pro. The new platform is claimed to be faster and comes with a buckload of features.

OpenSea Pro to aggregate over 170 NFT marketplaces

According to the details from the tweet, the upgraded marketplaces bring the deepest liquidity along with live cross-marketplace data. It will also pool in NFTs from over 170 NFT marketplaces, promising the fastest collection updates. The platform will also come with better-optimized gas fees along with powerful inventory management.
Users will also be able to create bulk lists across marketplaces. What is even more attractive is that the platform will have no listing fees for a promotional period.
OpenSea also mentioned in the tweet, “As a gesture of appreciation to the Gem community of users: If you used Gem before March 31 ’23, you’re eligible to claim the ‘Gemesis’ NFT, which can be minted directly on OpenSea, as a special thank you for your support.”
