OpenSea launched a suite of tools to let people or brands launch their own NFT projects. The tools aid in deploying smart contracts across all supported EVM chains, configuring drop mechanics, and personalizing landing pages.
Here’s what we know:
In a Tweet, OpenSea said the first version of Drops offered an “immersive” experience to select partners that launched their collection on its platform.
It explained, “Over the past few months, we worked closely with 20 amazing teams to build a best-in-class drops experience that includes features like multi-stage minting phases, allowlist support, and rich storytelling elements.”
The next phase of the Drops roll-out will give creators the tools to manage their own minting experience, including “deploying smart contracts across all supported EVM chains, configuring drop mechanics, personalizing landing pages,” and more.
The experiences will gradually open up to select creators over the coming weeks as they add more features.
The Tweet further stated, “Our vision is to expand this product so that ANYONE can easily drop collections across any chain on OpenSea with an immersive, safe storefront, without needing access to robust technical resources or expertise!”
OpenSea, while experimenting with customized landing pages, said landing pages are customizable and provide space for key messaging and project information (like minting schedules, a countdown clock, NFT gallery & roadmaps) as well as images and videos. Creators like omgkirby, CLOUDMACHINE, Probably a Label, and Anthony Hopkins have set up their personalized landing pages.
