Web3 is really about users owning the platforms they use. To succeed these days, the models must be changed from Web2 to Web3. Opensea is currently the NFT monopoly and it has its own pricing power by having all users listing there and most liquidity. As a liquidity provider there, understanding what it means to list on Opensea and not somewhere else, I would like to start a discussion regarding a move which could help Universe.xyz succeed not just in terms of big technological advances but also in terms of getting market share enough to matter and compete with the monopoly that is OS.
The idea is simple. Airdrop to Opensea users based on activity, similar to the one Looksrare did. This is truly web3. users own the platform they use and they have incentive to list there and trade there, because they own tokens and stake them for rewards. I have no doubt that the only way to break through the OS monopoly is by being truly Web 3.0 platform and not VCs funded one, or not being just a platform rewarding the devs. From day 1, users must be able to share the success of the platform itself.
I’m opening this discussion and hope it attracts comments about this very important topic. I’m ready to discuss all the pros and cons and guide Universe.xyz to the real Web 3.0 future that is coming. As a person with 20+ years experience with web, macro trading, algo trading, HFT, NFTs collector, NFTs liquidity providing, I’m here to share my thoughts and help with whatever I can. For the record, I’m holding some XYZ tokens as well as Polymorphs but this doesn’t mean I’m bullish on the XYZ future unless I see progress on the web 3.0 front. For now its just small allocation unless I understand better the team and community behind XYZ and if my allocation, votes and energy will be useful or not.
