OpenSea expands support to Polygon on its Seaport marketplace protocol
Leading NFT marketplace OpenSea has announced that its Seaport protocol will now support listings and offers on layer two scaling solution Polygon.
It made the announcement via a tweet earlier this week: 'Starting today, we will begin using Seaport for all new listings and offers on Polygon! We're excited to start using Seaport across multiple blockchains to improve the experience for everyone on OpenSea.'
Seaport is a Web3 marketplace protocol designed for safely and efficiently buying and selling NFTs. OpenSea switched to the Seaport protocol in June this year, claiming it would help users save around 35% on gas fees. It also allowed bidding for entire collections or multiple NFTs with the same attribute.
Polygon on OpenSea was previously powered by the 0x protocol. With this new development, the marketplace believes it can consolidate its infrastructure to provide a more stable buying and selling experience that matches other chains.
OpenSea listed a bunch of new features to be expected with the Seaport Polygon integration, the most important of which is the ability for the platform's users to transact in MATIC, Polygon's native token.
The other new features will allow users to list and buy Polygon NFTs at any price with a US$ 1 minimum on offers, purchase NFTs for another wallet, list Polygon NFTs as bundles to be sold together, and bulk transfer NFTs to the same wallet in a single transaction among other features.
The platform also revealed it would be adding support for Klaytn and other EVM-compatible chains in a few months.
