As the NFT community grows, we’ve recognized a need to better serve more experienced, “pro” users, and offer more flexibility and choice to people at every level of experience,” stated the OpenSea team.
Following the acquisition, Gem will continue to operate as an independent entity, and maintain the steady pace of its roadmap. The only difference being that it now has an incredible amount of funds supporting it, and that certain developed features will find their way onto the OpenSea platform.
