Marketplace NFT Rarible has temporarily canceled orders for OpenSea and today sent out a series of tweets describing how it plans to help tackle what it has called “risky sell orders” on OpenSea with a new order management tool.
The tool is designed to help users differentiate their active and inactive orders to prevent their NFTs from being sold in error, even if they cancel an OpenSea order by transferring the asset to another wallet.
Part of Rarible’s business model is to aggregate OpenSea orders on its platform.
Since the end of December 2021, OpenSea users have noticed a Thumbtack which allows assets to remain for sale on Rarible even when their assets have been moved to another wallet. Scarcity Explain :
âWhen you move your item, the order can no longer be fulfilled. But when the item returns to your wallet, the order is active on the channel again. The safe way to delete an ad is to chain it.
The Rarible tool displays the commands either active Where Inactive to alleviate confusion about which assets are actually for sale. Rarible said in a Tweeter, “Active orders are pending at the moment and require most of your attention”, while “Inactive orders are orders that will become active in case the NFT returns to your wallet”.
Rarible is currently the ninth NFT marketplace according to DappRadar.
