Blur is the “worst thing” in the NFT field?

in a tweet Recently, Aaron Sage said, “blurring is the worst thing that can happen to this field”.

The author describes himself as “passionate about NFTs, cryptocurrencies, and self-development.” He criticized Blur Markets for arguing that NFTs are “more than money” in nature.

“They brainwash you with rewards and lure you with free money.”

he continues criticize Blur’s user interface is unattractive, calling it a list of “non-art item descriptions or anything.”

Furthermore, the saint suppose i think Unlike rival platform OpenSea, it’s fitting that this marketplace doesn’t support creators with grassroots initiatives.

Closing the thread of his tweet, Sage emphasized that he doesn’t hate Blur or their users, but longs for the way the NFT space used to be when it was focused on “art and culture” rather than money.

“I just wish the NFT space would shift the focus to the way we used to be — in terms of art and culture (i.e. buzzed NFT apes, even lazy lions swooping down on Twitter), but not Blur today.”

Blur knocks OpenSea off the top spot

Blur, which launches in October 2022 with backing from Paradigm and ParaFi, raised $11 million in seed funding seven months ago.

As of February, research platform Delphi Digital said Blur had achieved 53% market share just a few months after its launch. This result is due to a number of factors, including zero marketplace fees, the option to skip or reduce royalty payments, and fast NFT scanning (the ability to buy multiple NFTs at once).

Additionally, Delphi Digital stated that Blur’s generous token airdrop program was a key factor in increasing its market share.

On Feb. 14, eligible users received 360 million tokens, or 12% of the supply, earning an average of $2,943 each. The company recently announced the “Second Season” airdrop, which is expected to distribute an additional 300 million tokens.

The latest figures from the Twitter account osf_rekt show that BLUR has grown its market share to 55%, almost double that of the next market, OpenSea.

OpenSea is not for traders

Which market is better, GSKrovina users explain The main difference between Blur and OpenSea is that the Blur marketplace is aimed at traders rather than retail users – as evidenced by the listing format and scanning capabilities.

While Sage criticized Blur’s user interface, GSKrovina said it was better suited for traders looking to “move their volume”. Also, there is no native OpenSea token, so users are encouraged to stick with Blur, at least in the short term.

“Blur’s UI is better than OpenSea, especially for traders.”

Likewise, Seelawrie stated that Blur “seems to understand culture better than OpenSea,” contradicting Sage’s view that NFTs are more than just money.
