Blur begins opening up beta access to its real-time NFT trading platform

Blur announced Wednesday that it will begin opening beta access to its trader-focused NFT marketplace.

"Monthly trading volumes for NFTs have hit billions, but existing platforms are slow and refresh-based," the company tweeted. "The beta lets you see listings and sales on existing marketplaces in real-time. Never refresh again." 

The beta waitlist is currently invite-only and "everyone who joins will be rewarded," said the series of tweets.

The beta will allow users to see a new view of their portfolio which will feature real-time listings and activities, listings and delistings, and instant metadata reveals.

"When opportunity strikes, you can act fast by bulk listing and delisting directly on Blur," the company said on Twitter. "Reveals are one of the most critical periods of the NFT lifecycle. You no longer need to wait hours for metadata to refresh. Blur indexes reveals faster than anywhere else, automatically."

In March, Blur raised $11 million in a seed funding round led by crypto VC firm Paradigm,  as The Block previously reported.
