Traders using the Blur NFT marketplace may be disappointed to hear that the launch of its native BLUR token, which was initially planned for January, has been delayed until February 14, 2023. This was confirmed in a January 19, 2023 statement on social media, along with an apology to users.
Details About the Delay
In its statement, Blur said that the reason for the delay is that it is trying to sort out some behind-the-scenes details of the upcoming token.
$BLUR is launching February 14
We know this is past our initial estimate of January and we’re sorry for the delay. We’re trying new things and the extra two weeks will allow us to deliver a launch that hasn’t been done before. Airdrop 3 will continue until then. pic.twitter.com/ZzSyGzjZJD

Blur has certainly drummed up a lot of anticipation for its incoming token, previously airdropping NFT ‘care packages’ containing unspecified amounts of the coin to prolific NFT traders. According to the platform, $BLUR will act as both a governance token and a chance for users to profit from the marketplace that they already support. Now, as the marketplace looks to fine tune its latest offering, traders can expect a little extra love this Valentine’s day!
