React NFT Drop Components
This month we made great progress on building our React NFT drop components. Once completed, these components will be open sourced and make it easy for any WAX NFT creator to integrate into their own custom branded drop pages. We’re about 75% done and, in the coming weeks, we’ll begin using them to prototype our own .gems drop pages.
Introducing sk8coin Magazine
Introducing our interactive digital NFT magazine powered by flipbook technology and the WAX blockchain network. This NFT based digital magazine features all of the skaters from our alpha series along with new skaters from around the world.
The sk8coin NFT magazine contains claimable links to free NFT drops exclusively available only to magazine holders and gives collectors an entirely new interactive experience while getting to know the skaters they support. Additional features include embedded videos, interactive links, and interviews with skaters and filmers from all parts of the globe that produce the magical content, as well as articles relating to the work it takes to make it all happen.
Collectors can get a glimpse of what it’s like to be in the field directly from the skateboarder’s point of view. We also offer advertisement opportunities for projects looking to get exposure to the community that follows our project. If you enjoy skateboarding culture and NFT games you will absolutely love our new magazine which also includes reviews on the newest and hottest projects on WAX.
The magazine will initially be available on WAX and will expand to other blockchains soon. New issues will be released bi-monthly with each issue featuring interviews with the skaters, film crews, and influencers involved with the project as well as exclusive NFTs only found in these digital magazines. The NFT sets claimed will be fully upgradeable to 5 different levels using our blend fusion technology on Nefty Blocks.
In January, collectors will be able to mint the sk8coin Magazine by blending all the rare skateboard from the Virtual Reality Graffity Battle Season 00 collection. On top of that, we are currently in talks with the nftysk8boards Ethereum project and hope to onboard them into the WAX ecosystem next month on top of the feature we did on them in the sk8coin Magazine. Check out their awesome 3D models on Instagram.
.Discovery Stream & Social Media Engagement
Last month, we introduced you to our new dedicated WAX community manager, LoveHandlz , and he has already been making an impact on our social engagement! Since implementing his NFT giveaway strategy to boost community engagement, we’ve seen a significant boost in engagement on our Street.gems Twitter account. We’ve also expanded our promotion to Instragram leveraging the Oli Kentner account.
This WAX-exclusive brand brings a unique and interactive events to the WAX community such as our upcoming Virtual Reality Graffiti Battles Season 2. Make sure to follow @streetdotgems on Twitter to participate in our giveaways VRGB events!
We’ve also produced our first episode of the .gems Twitch Discovery Stream which features our WAX initiatives, such as the sk8coin Magazine, as well as other ecosystem projects. We also plan on leveraging our EOS Nation YouTube channel to republish this video in order to allow those subscribers to also be exposed to the content.
