Here’s How Web3 is Reacting to OpenSea’s New ‘Deals’ Feature

When OpenSea hinted at an impending announcement last week, many in the community speculated that they would launch a token or airdrop. Instead, they surprised users with a new feature called Deals.

The feature lets users exchange an NFT or a combination of NFTs from their collection for another user’s NFT or a collection of theirs directly on the platform. Additionally, users can add Wrapped Ether (WETH) on top of the offers. 

With this move, OpenSea’s team is creating a more direct peer-to-peer trading experience. Users can view, offer, and accept trades directly on OS, eliminating the need to venture onto potentially scam-ridden websites or to negotiate trades through direct messages, a practice that has led to many to have been swindled in the past.

Right on time or too late?

OpenSea’s announcement has been met with approval by many in the Web3 community, as it adds a layer of ease, flexibility, and security to NFT trading on their platform.

So thrilled to see this launch — Seaport was designed from the very start with this use-case in mind

Looking for more onchain NFTs to add to the collection if anybody has their eye on one of mine and wants to make deals! https://t.co/ce2pG2ep12

Opensea deals is a great step in the right direction to tackling scammers.

I love to see it, easier trades all round when exchanging nfts, and more protection. 💎

However, some have responded that this update came “too late,” as users have wanted a feature like this for a long time. Others noted that they wish OpenSea had created a token, as was initially speculated. Despite this criticism, most users still acknowledge the importance and benefits of Deals.

This feature is crucial for the development of the NFT ecosystem, but it came a little bit late when we compare it to the development of other marketplaces on other blockchains..

While the timing of this update can be debated, one thing is certain: a more secure and trustworthy trading ecosystem is an indisputable win for all parties involved. This move not only bolsters the confidence of current users but may also attract a new audience looking for a safer, more reliable trading experience.
