🎬 Video NFTs & More Audio

Video NFTs, Persistent Audio Player & Free Web3 Music Cohort

gm, and welcome to issue #63 of ✨Spark✨ We decided to recreate our once notion-based blog into a much better site 😉 — check out our new blog, now on Bonfire! This week we published a great read on why you should consider dropping free NFT collections and a few cool use cases we’ve seen creators and brands implement. Read here.

Today we're talking about:

  • Video NFTs

  • Persistent Audio Player

  • Invest in Music

  • Discord Announcements Channel

Product Updates

🎥 Native Video NFTs: We're thrilled to announce that our NFT drops feature just got a whole lot better. Introducing native video NFT drops! Now you can create and launch video NFT editions straight from your Bonfire dashboard with just a few clicks. We've been working hard to bring NFT video support to life, and we're thrilled to celebrate this milestone with you. Enjoy!

⏯ Persistent Audio Player: Have you ever browsed an artist's page, and suddenly the music stops playing? Well, that’s in the past. With the new persistent audio player you can now listen to your favorite tunes without interruption while exploring an artist's page. Give it a try and let us know how this changes your music experience on Bonfire.

Coming Up Next

Rolling up in beta we have the SDK integration with our friends at Decent. We know many of you have been patiently waiting for this integration, and soon you’ll be able to import your Decent contracts to use with some of our most popular blocks including the mint and collectors blocks. Keep an eye out, because the integration is coming sooner than you think 👀

Creator Spotlight

Coopah Troopa’s “This Week in Music NFTs” newsletter is growing up! The project has now evolved into “Invest in Music” and will feature a weekly newsletter and podcast series alongside a recap of top songs and stories, all housed on their Bonfire site. The intention is to help fans become collectors by guiding them through the Music NFT culture.

Tip of the Week

If you have a community on Discord and want to share current NFT drops, airdrops, or contests happening on your Bonfire site, then integrate Discord with Bonfire and set up an announcements channel. This channel will allow you to get automated bot posts whenever you publish a new drop. Here’s a guide to help you set it up.
