Erase the divide?
A look at Sealaunch’s Dune analysis dashboard revealed that Blur had amassed an amazing volume in December. Since the beginning of the month, the volume had doubled Open sea. The volume seen at the time of writing was about 3700 ETH instead of 1500 for OpenSea.
However, a metric survey by NFT Sales Count revealed that the new marketplace was still lagging behind OpenSea. However, it recorded the target’s second-highest sales figure, and its performance was superior in other markets. Over 13,000 NFTs were sold on the top marketplace, while only 8,000 were sold on Blur.
The volume distribution chart showed that Blur had established itself as a powerful rival in the industry. It had more than 26% of the total volume, second only to OpenSea, which had 49% of it. However, when the user distribution and sales distribution charts were examined, the difference appeared larger. Compared to 72.6% and 61.2% for OpenSea, it had 9.6% and 14.9% respectively.
Blur’s Ascent creates options for traders…
Since its launch in October, Blur has produced excellent statistics, and Ascent was not ignored in the NFT industry. Although it experienced incredible growth, it still trailed OpenSea in terms of market share and user base. Furthermore, this was expected, given how long both marketplaces have been around, Blur could close the gap even more if it maintains its current trend.
Due to the variety of marketplaces available to execute NFT trades, investors can win in this situation.
