Is Multi-Chain Functionality the New Standard For NFT Marketplaces?

Recent months have seen an upsurge in multi-chain functionality on various NFT marketplaces. The development was precipitated by the growing popularity of non-fungible tokens as well as by the fact that they became spread across hundreds of marketplaces and numerous blockchains. 

The trend has been most noticeable with the rise of NFT aggregators whose trading volume has, by the end of 2022, surpassed $1.9 billion. So far, Blur has perhaps had the most staggering rise in popularity as it managed to come to rival OpenSea, one of the largest non-fungible token marketplaces, mere months after being launched.

Magic Eden is another NFT platform that has been aggressively pursuing a multi-chain expansion. Within a single month this year, it announced it has expanded both to Ethereum and Bitcoin.
