According to the announcement, the acquisition of Atomic Bazaar will bring item-to-item bartering, more sophisticated orders and other ways to exchange NFTs.
“We were super impressed with the Atomic Bazaar product when it launched back in July. The Atomic Bazaar experience brought something entirely new to the NFT ecosystem by focusing on bartering: on Atomic Bazaar, users can organize real-time trades for mixed sets of NFT’s,” OpenSea states in the announcement.
With the acquisition, certain members of Atomic Bazaar have joined the OpenSea team. Additionally, OpenSea notes that the expanded team will be rolling out new features to third-party developers building on the platform.
