Is OpenSea Studio the best platform for launching a new NFT?

OpenSea Studio released last week and it has prompted praise and backlash from various facets of the digital community. OpenSea Studio is a platform that enables any creator or business to create and deploy an NFT sale entirely from OpenSea without the need for any servers, developers, or additional resources.

Sounds Great!

But there is a catch: OpenSea takes 10% of primary and 2.5% of secondary sales in perpetuity. There is an argument to be made that this is a reasonable arrangement given the tools and reach of OpenSea. That being said, we felt it would be worthwhile to quickly highlight some other studios and players operating at a similar (or better) functional level for lower costs.

Self-Service Alternatives

The primary justification for using OS Studio is the self-service nature. Believe it or not, there are tens, if not hundreds, of self service platforms out there. In particular, two companies who are leading the way in both tech and pricing come to mind:

Manifold Studio
  • One of the first self-service platforms, Manifold has become a trusted name in this space
  • Ability to create ERC-721 or ERC-1155 contracts, upload metadata/art, and sell via mint page with no code
  • 100% of revenue is kept by creator with a nominal platform fee being added to the purchase
  • Offers a more robust no-code offering, including art generation engines and customizable drop pages
  • Deeper experiences and analytics for drops
  • 100% of revenue is kept by creator with a nominal platform fee being added to the purchase
But what if I need more help?

Whether it is your first digital product, you could use some help with strategy, or you just want to make sure everything is perfect, not everyone wants to use a self-service tool. There can be a lot of stress when handling all aspects of a new product. Great news! For every self service solution, there are ten agencies who would be happy to help. Many of those agencies - including us - are even able to help you for less than 10% of your primary proceeds!
