Blur founder Pacman puts the NFT marketplace war into perspective


In this episode of Hashing It Out, Pacman, the founder and core contributor of the nonfungible token (NFT) marketplace Blur, joins Elisha Owusu Akyaw to discuss how Blur has captured the attention of the NFT market.

The tides in the NFT ecosystem changed in December 2022 when the newly launched NFT marketplace overtook OpenSea as the largest NFT trading platform by trading volume. Pacman describes this as a similar situation to the progression of the general token market.

He explains that Blur created a marketplace that puts professional traders first, a niche not covered by popular platforms that prioritize a simple user experience to attract newcomers. According to Pacman, that focus makes Blur the go-to platform for the “highest growing segment” in the NFT space.
