You can now seamlessly access OpenSea, the world’s biggest NFT marketplace, from your Argent Vault, our Layer 1 wallet. This is a result of OpenSea adding support for smart contract wallets. It's a big step for NFT security, as Argent is the only wallet with multisig security and no seed phrase. WAGMI.
Argent x OpenSea
What's changed? Argent Vault users now have full access to OpenSea's NFT marketplace. Buy, sell and list. Easily and securely.
This follows a year of astonishing growth from OpenSea, with sales volume increasing 600X, reaching $5bn last month.
OpenSea gives you access to the vast majority of the most popular NFTs, from Punks to Apes, Fidenzas to Toadz. We're super excited our community now has full access.
Existing users of OpenSea can check out this article to learn more about OpenSea's upgrade.
The importance of NFT security
The main benefit of OpenSea's change is that people no longer need to move assets to less secure wallets in order to use the platform. This matters because the flip side to the growth in NFTs last year was the rise in hacks.
There are near daily stories of people losing everything with one small mistake. They wake up, check their wallet and find everything gone. A common reason for this is that people get tricked into sharing their seed phrase (which gives someone total control of the assets). And it's not just crypto beginners that fall victim to this. We've seen many cases where people who knew about the risks still slipped up. It's easy to do as Discord is flooded by scammers, and simply typing MetaMask into Twitter unleashes a tidal wave of fake customer support accounts.
Argent solves this. We have no seed phrases, making your wallet immune to these types of phishing attacks.
Argent's security instead uses guardians. These are trusted friends or devices that help you to recover your wallet, approve transfers to new addresses, or lock your account. As Vitalik Buterin says, this approach to security is vital for crypto's mass adoption. As he explains, it offers stronger security than using a hardware wallet alone as there's no single point of failure.
