From the offset, OpenSea will list some of the most popular Arbitrum collections on the circuit, including offerings from Smolverse, GMX Blueberry Club and the formidable Diamond Pepes. However, OpenSea has noted that creators should locate their NFTs and set their own fees, preferably from day one.
All this comes as news surfaced that Arbitrum recently narrowly avoided a major breach on its Ethereum bridge. However, thanks to the timely intervention of white hat hacker, Riptide, the team managed to circumvent the disaster, with Riptide awarded an impressive 400 ETH bug bounty for his troubles.
