Latest Mint: NFT Marketplace OpenSea Shifts To Seaport Protocol
OpenSea has announced their shift from Wyvern to Seaport today, a protocol adjustment that will “significantly improve gas costs” and add other small features and UI upgrades. According to the platform’s blog post, gas fees are estimated to be cut by roughly 35%.
