Despite playing a crucial part in the NFT ecosystem, rarity has proved a contentious subject. Essentially seeing the current standard rely on closed sourced environments and irregular mathematical calculations.
So, to put this cumbersome beast to bed, some of the brightest minds have banded together to solve the problem forever, resulting in the likes of OpenSea, Curio, Icy.Tools and the PROOF collective join forces to create OpenRarity. A singular open-sourced transparent platform with grounded mathematical equations at its beating heart.
