Two Years Since Preview Announcement From the better late than never file, this update is a little behind this month. 😊😇 I have been busy working on our new environment and configurations for v1.0. With all the activity and effort to make this happen, I decided to round out the delay to this week as it signifies a full two years since announcing the preview on February 22, 2022. Difficult to believe and accept that this is the case! Continue reading

What’s New? We have supported PayPal Payouts since the market opened in June 2022. At that time, my impression and understanding was that fees for this service were $0.25 for each payout. It turns out this is accurate, but only for US-only payouts. International payouts are 2%. This misunderstanding was caught pretty quickly when we started to process international payouts, which comprise a majority of our payouts. I noticed that they were not always $0. Continue reading

Wow it is already November, with roughly two more months left in 2023. 🤯 It is also the first Tuesday of the month so it’s time for a monthly update. ✨🚀 Back on Track, Sort of… I am very happy to announce the return of Lady Leah. This was a huge ordeal for us, as we had to deal with a lot of Twitter dysfunction to resolve this issue – which was that her account was suspended without reason or warning. Continue reading

It’s the first full week of the month and that means it’s time for the latest starbeam.one status update! Slow Times on the Starship Things have gotten slow here, a little slower than anticipated! This was expected as I spent more time on developing key features for support and administration. However, the one incident we did not account for was having our premiere artist account inadvertently getting suspended by Twitter. Lady Leah is our top artist with over 10,000 followers and was our primary source of marketing and promotion. Continue reading
