🧰 Excitement for Blur.io NFT Airdrop 🧰

As competition within the NFT marketplace sector heats up, an all-new contender has come sidling into town. Hip new gunslinger, Blur, will look to cause a ruckus with a tasty airdrop and a sleek new NFT platform. Arriving in a social media whirlwind on October 19, news quickly spread of this formidable new contender. The mighty NFT marketplace features a lightning-fast bulk buy aggregator, as well as zero fees and an on-board portfolio manager and tracker. To get the attention of the NFT community, Blur has kicked off with a ‘Care Package’ airdrop. Essentially, distributing packages in three degrees of rarity containing an indeterminate number of $BLUR tokens, each item remaining a mystery until the full token launch arrives in January.

🧺 Rarible Introduces NFT Aggregator 🧺

The Ethereum-based NFT marketplace Rarible has announced the launch of its non-fungible token (NFT) aggregator. The tool, which is accessible on the Rarible homepage, allows users to filter NFTs by blockchain, status, price, marketplace, and type. This would allow consumers to easily identify NFTs and purchase them at the best price without having to spend a lot of time and effort making the comparisons themselves. Rarible, OpenSea, x2y2, and LookRare are the Ethereum-based marketplaces that customers may now choose from among the filters. While the blockchains available include Ethereum, Solana, Tezos, Immutable X, Flow, and Polygon.

🏁👇 Magic Eden Moves to Optional Royalty Model 🏁👇

Solana non-fungible token (NFT) mainstay Magic Eden is moving to an optional royalty model, the marketplace said in Twitter thread on Oct 14th. The company says it will also be waiving its 2% platform fee, effective later Friday. The move follows a controversial trend set by other popular NFT marketplaces like X2Y2, which have opted to make royalty payments optional in a bid to attract more users — to the chagrin of most creators.

🏠⛓ NFT House Sold for $175K 🏠⛓

NFTs have found a home within the real estate market, with uses cases such as streamlining access, reducing transaction friction and democratizing ownership. For many years, real estate has been seen as a profitable investment with a less volatile history compared to cryptocurrency. Roofstock, a real estate technology company, has combined the two fields with the sale of a tokenized house for $175,000 last weekend on OpenSea, despite the recent general crypto market meltdown that has left many digital collectibles shedding more than 60% of their value in the past four months.

MLB is Hiring to Expand NFT Games ⚾

Major League Baseball (MLB), an American professional baseball association composed of 30 teams, is looking to hire someone to spearhead digital gaming, NFT and metaverse licensing projects. The position includes executing strategic partnerships to expand the MLB’s digital portfolio in NFTs, metaverse, wearable technology and AR/VR offerings, according to a LinkedIn post, suggesting that the MLB will look to broaden its digital asset launches and metaverse presence in the future. The MLB has made some other splashes in web3 this year. In January, the League started selling NFTs via a partnership with Candy Digital, a digital collectibles company co-founded by major web3 executives Mike Novogratz, Gary Vaynerchuk and Michael Rubin.
