In accordance with Pacman, that focus makes Blur the go-to platform for the “highest rising section” within the NFT house.
The NFT market is using a wave of newfound reputation, launching a token distributed to the neighborhood by an airdrop. Pacman argues that the token was required to offer the neighborhood direct entry and possession of the platform.
“This is among the issues that actually excited us as builders in Web3 as a result of in Web2, there’s a clear delineation platform and the end-user, and often, they’re considerably opposed. The top-users don’t actually have any management over the platform.“

The 2 main platforms, OpenSea and Blur, have adopted methods that place new collections able the place they’re required to select one over the opposite. In accordance with Pacman, Blur is asking creators to dam OpenSea to earn royalties as a short-term resolution that may result in a extra unified method sooner or later.
