New features & updates, August 2021

As the community grows and the trading numbers go up, we’re working hard to improve site reliability and deliver on our feature-heavy roadmap. Here’s the latest from August…

Collection page updates

Searching for a project now takes you to the revamped collection page, featuring accessible filters/traits in the sidebar, a default sort of lowest to highest price, and more. Keep your eyes peeled for some customization-focused features coming real soon.

Collection-less creating

You can now create NFTs without needing to make a collection first. Just click ‘Create’ at the top of the page, and your item will be added to a default collection that you can rename and edit.

Streamlined listing process

We made listing items easier and clearer for first-time sellers. The new three-step process should help reduce confusion for those taking their first hesitant steps on the platform.

Verified bundles

You can now bundle items from different verified collections, including but not limited to:

  • Bored Ape Yacht Club Apes and BAKC Dogs
  • Gutter Cat Gang Cats and Gutter Rats
  • Wicked Craniums and Wicked Stallions

Additionally, as a buyer safety measure, we now restrict bundling to items with the same verification status. This will prevent bad actors from bundling a fake item with a real item and conning someone into buying the mixed set.

‘Make offer’ button

We made it easier to make offers by moving the button above the fold on item pages. We’re also currently building a more robust offer management system (min offers, ability to hide offers for items/collections), so keep track of us on Twitter for the latest updates.

Mobile app

The OpenSea mobile app is close to release! A look at some of the features below…
