It’s the first week of the month here at starbeam.one. This means the latest monthly status update. ✨🚀 v1.1 Released I was finally able to deploy v1.1 last month, which includes all sorts of quality updates to v1.0. With that release I finally caught up with all the technical debt I had been enduring and battling for the past few months. I am so glad that is over and I am able to finally get back to feature development. Continue reading

It’s the first week of the month, and that historically means it’s time for our monthly status update here on starbeam.one! 🚀 Back on Schedule-ish I say historically as last month was a bit of an outlier. We’re back to the first week of the month here with our cadence, and what I have been doing is filming the standup on Tuesday and then writing the blog posts on the following day. Continue reading

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

PayPal Payout Fee Adjustments

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

Hello to all out there, and I hope this finds your holiday season well. 🦌⛄🎅❄ It’s the first Tuesday of the month, it is time for a monthly status update! 🚀 Welcome to Beta III I am very happy to announce that today we have Beta III. This is mostly a quality release, addressing a lot of issues for administration and user account management. With this monthly update, I am going to take some time here and reflect where we are here after four years of development, with (at present) another year of runway to make something of it in a viable way. 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

Believe it or not, we are in the first week of the month, which means the latest starbeam.one Status Update! 🚀 Welcome to Beta I At long last, after nearly four years of development, we are now official in beta quality. Truth be told, we probably have been in beta quality for quite some time now. Based on feedback from several members, I have made the switch to get this officially acknowledged recognized. Continue reading

It is the first week of the month which means it’s time for the starbeam.one monthly update! Usually this occurs on a Tuesday, but since we were celebrating our nation’s birthday yesterday it felt a little unpatriotic to do such an activity. So today it is! 1.6K Flares of Volume in June, 54% More than May Last month I felt like tempting fate by announcing how much volume we did for the month. Continue reading
