That hasn’t done much to boost sales volume, however, according to blockchain data compiled by DappRadar. OpenSea has seen $414 million in weekly sales over the most recent seven-day period; Rarible has only seen $383,000.
As part of the announcement, Rarible said it will be launching its own multi-chain wallet, though no release date was provided. The platform is also adding capability for fee splitting and royalty standards for ERC-721 and ERC-1155 tokens minted on the site.
“[Rarible] understands the responsibility to democratize all aspects of NFTs for both creators and consumers,” Alexei Falin, CEO of Rarible, said in a press release. “A collaboration with Polygon is another achievement for Rarible Protocol that enables blossoming marketplaces and projects built within its ecosystem to access new communities and increase back-end capabilities.”
The company says it will also be tapping Polygon Studios, the blockchain’s NFT and gaming arm, for marketing and tech support as part of the partnership.
Polygon raised a $450 million funding round in February led by Sequoia Capital India.
