OpenSea’s Creator Studio to Open New Chapter in NFT Storytelling
OpenSea is soon launching its Creator Studio, brimming with intuitive no-code tools to streamline minting and elevate storytelling capabilities.
In a couple weeks, we're launching Creator Studio with the fundamental, no-code tools to:
- Launch drops for your community to mint
- Mint items directly to your wallet

Over the coming months, the Creator Studio will be enriched with added features allowing users to integrate diverse content types (images, videos, roadmaps, and FAQ layouts).
The idea behind the new feature is to enhance the storytelling capabilities of the NFT items.
OpenSea teased a glimpse of Vinnie Hager's collection, 'Diary by Vinnie Hager', showcasing the ability to embed narrative content.
The NFT marketplace will also be phasing out its lazy-minting creation flows by October 3, replacing it in Creator Studio through a method that enables users to create collections on independent contracts they deploy.
All items minted using the lazy minting tool before this date can still be traded as usual. However, they will not be editable after this deadline.
YoY Growth for NFT Trading Activity Jumps by 44% Amid Bear Market
Amidst the bear market, DappRadar highlighted a 44% surge in daily NFT activity from the previous year, underscoring the enduring vigor of the NFT sector.
Polygon emerged as the top NFT blockchain in terms of sales, boasting 497,137 sales with 112,459 traders.
Moreover, newer blockchains like zkSync are gaining traction.
Marketplace dynamics are shifting, with OpenSea's dominance dropping by 14% with new marketplaces like Blur posing intense competition.
Gaming-centric NFT collections have seen significant growth, reflecting blockchain gaming's massive 40% share in the Web3 industry.
Yuga Labs — despite generating more than $116 million in royalties last year — faced a 79% drop in 2023 following Blur's no-royalty model.
Instability Prompts Bitcoin Ordinals to Rethink Numbering Protocol
Bitcoin Ordinals' Casey Rodarmor proposes a shift in the protocol's unique numbering system for simplification.
I guess the cat is out of the bag! In short, I think that the effort to keep inscription numbers stable hasn't been worth it, and has led to ugly code and stalled development, since new changes need to be extremely and often awkardly careful not to change the numbers of old… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…

Each NFT under the protocol currently possesses a distinct inscription number.
“Ugly code and halted progress" were cited as reasons for making inscription numbers more flexible.
Numbers won't be discarded but could vary, potentially by around 1%.
The community's response is divided: some back the move, while others value the original numbering.
Ordinals, allowing inscriptions into satoshis, dominated 84.9% of Bitcoin activity as of August 21.
