Twelve Crypto Monopolies: OpenSea Bitmain MetaMask Deribit and more

OpenSea

  • Pre-OpenSea monopoly era: The competitors were SuperRare, Rarible, Foundation and etc. At this stage, OpenSea was in an absolute monopoly at this stage and its market share grew rapidly from 40% to 98%.
  • Watershed: The OpenSea IPO fiasco, NFT asset loss and other events made users’ goodwill towards OpenSea gradually decline, and the market was eager for a challenger that could pose a threat to OpenSea.
  • Post-OpenSea monopoly era: Now.
