OpenSea, UniSwap, MagicEden, eBay, and others are purchasing NFT aggregation tools and taking a position to increase their market share within the expanding NFT ecosystem.
DappRader’s “Dapp Industry Report for Q2” 2022 suggested that a non-fungible token (NFT) platform war could be imminent.
UniSwap recently bought Genie and OpenSea acquired Gem to extend their respective businesses to include NFT aggregation tools, which collect NFT offers from other trading platforms. Meanwhile, emerging platforms like Magic Eden and X2Y2 continue challenging OpenSea’s present 75% NFT market domination.
These purchases will soon place well-established businesses such as OpenSea and UniSwap in direct rivalry. eBay has bought KnownOrigin, an Ethereum-based digital art market, to extend its digital product offerings and skills in the NFT arena.
OpenSea has been facing challenges by the proliferation of NFT systems on several blockchains. The company’s market share has decreased due to competitors such as Magic Eden, LooksRare, and X2Y2.

In April, CNBC reported that OpenSea had over 1.5 million active users. DappRadar says the platform has gained 66,03 thousand users in the last thirty days, compared to MagicEden’s 279,97 thousand. According to the same DappRadar statistics, MagicEden had 14,1 million transactions in the previous thirty days, whereas OpenSea had just 955,69 thousand. In addition, the study states, “Magic Eden accounts for 10% of all NFTs transactions during this quarter.”
