OpenSea has adopted OpenRarity — a scarcity tracking tool that allows buyers to check the rarity of a specific non-fungible token (NFT).
Following the adoption, OpenRarity will help OpenSea to remove opacity as to how rare certain features in an NFT are. It will also further eliminate the use of third-party NFT scarcity tracking tools.
Other popular NFT projects that have used OpenRarity are Pudgy Penguins, Cool Cats and Moonbirds. All of these NFT collections have between 8,888 to 10,000 NFTs within their collection made from algorithmically generated images, according to The Block, and «some of the features in these NFTs are found within less than 1% of the collection, such as a pillowcase on its head in the case of Pudgy Penguins or a robot face for Cool Cats.» Rarity plays a vital role in the NFT sector as it can dictate the value of the item.
A potential buyer these days usually seeks to understand the rarity of an NFT even before the NFT’s purchase history or who it’s currently owned by.Read more on blockchain.news
