LooksRare, an NFT marketplace, launches version 2, lowering fees from 2% to 0.5 percent.

The previous version of the nonfungible token marketplace will be sunsetted by April 13, 2023

Nonfungible token (NFT) commercial center LooksRare has moved up to form 2, lessening charges by 75% and carrying out a few different elements, as indicated by an April 6 declaration from the organization.

The first version of the LooksRare platform charged 2% per trade. Version 2 has reduced this to 0.5 percent. Additionally, the app’s gas-efficient contracts in v2 enable users to save approximately 30% on gas costs compared to the previous version.

The organization made sense of that in form 2, merchants get Ether rather than Wrapped Ether (WETH) for most deals, and the brilliant agreements consider mass trading orders if a client has any desire to at the same time put different exchanges. Additionally, aggregators now have the ability to implement custom recipients, enabling users to purchase NFTs with one wallet and send them to another.

Sellers can also list their NFTs for sale in token prices rather than ETH, such as for a fixed price in US dollars that must be paid in ETH equivalent.

In a separate post on April 7, the team stated that LooksRare v1 would be discontinued. On April 12, users will no longer be able to use the public API to post version 1 auctions from the app’s front end. On April 13, at 10:00 a.m. UTC, the website will remove all v1 auctions, and at 11:00 a.m. UTC, an admin function will disable the smart contracts themselves.

Many LooksRare users believed that the new features would pose a serious threat to rivals like OpenSea and Blur, so the response to the announcement was mostly positive.

However, not everyone was convinced that the second version of LooksRare would be sufficient to attract users from other platforms. Some users stated that v2 still does not permit sufficient collections to be listed or offer good token incentives.

When LooksRare made the decision in October to stop paying creator royalties, it caused some controversy. However, the recent rise in NFT prices has also helped it.
