OpenSea NFT Marketplace Adds Support for Optimism


NFT marketplace OpenSea announced on Tuesday that it has expanded its offerings to include projects built on Ethereum layer-2 scaling solution Optimism.

Optimism joins five other existing networks now supported by the marketplace: Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, Klatyn, and – as of last week – Arbitrum, another Ethereum scaler.

OpenSea already has listings for over 100 Optimism-native NFT collections on its marketplace since launching compatibility with the blockchain earlier today.

In announcing its partnership with Optimism, OpenSea specifically highlighted the onboarding of popular Optimism-backed projects including Apetimism, Bored Town, MotorHeadz, and OptiChads.

Each collection’s author must access their project on OpenSea to set a custom creator fee for sales on the marketplace, the company announced. Creators can earn up to 10% on every transaction of their work made on the site.

Prior to Tuesday, the vast majority of Optimism NFT trading volume took place on Optimism NFT marketplace Quix. Daily trading volume on Quix pales in comparison to that on OpenSea, the dominant NFT marketplace across all blockchains.
