NFT marketplace OpenSea launches mobile app for iOS and Android 

The NFT marketplace OpenSea launched a mobile app for iOS and Android users on Thursday, according to a post on the OpenSea official YouTube channel

The mobile app allows users to connect their OpenSea profile and discover new works, save works to favorites and filter NFT searches based on criteria such as category, name, collection and creator. Users can also view the stats of NFT collections and get links to exclusive releases. 

OpenSea has not announced the new app on their more popular Twitter or other channels, and it is not clear whether the app is being soft-launched. OpenSea did not respond to a request for comment by press time.

OpenSea’s release of a mobile app comes a day after the marketplace’s head of product Nate Chastain was asked to resign after allegations emerged that he'd traded on the site using insider knowledge.

Last month, OpenSea became the first one to surpass $1 billion in monthly trading volume in August and currently constitutes the vast majority of September's NFT trading volume, according to The Block's Data Dashboard.
