In early April, the giant OpenSea announced the ability to pay for NFT using a credit card. As a result, there will be no need for a cryptocurrency wallet such as Metamask to access the thousands of NFT available on the industry’s leading platform.
A significant step forward for the NFT
This is a step forward in the public’s growing acceptance of NFT. For the time being, the NFT marketplace accepts Visa, MasterCard, and American Express payments. Apple Pay and Google Pay are also available for mobile payments.
To enable the integration of this new public payment method, OpenSea has reached out to MoonPay, one of the world’s pioneers in crypto payment integration. The user will no longer be required to leave the platform in order to sell, mint, or purchase an NFT. A simple technique that allows everyone to enter the world of NFT.
OpenSea continues to grow at a rapid pace
This news follows the arrival of Solana’s NFT platform on the blockchain. A long-awaited arrival by NFT enthusiasts that is expected to quickly increase the amount of purchases.
Solana, in fact, has some of the most vogue collections at the moment. Following Ethereum, Polygon, and Klaytn, this is the fourth major blockchain to join the ranks of OpenSea.
The NFT industry is booming.
The arrival of the NFT on the scene in 2021 has left a mark. The announcements of major institutional players entering the Web3 universe in 2022 should validate this trend.
Adidas will soon release an exclusive NFT collection, while Visa has announced the establishment of a fund to support NFT creators. According to Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, Instagram should also include the NFT format in the next few months.
OpenSea, which was founded in 2017, has experienced rapid growth in recent months. The integration of payment by blue card should confirm this growth and attract a large number of users to the world’s leading NFT marketplace.
