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.

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

Welcome to Alpha IV Yay, we made it. Welcome to Alpha IV, which is the fourth alpha release of starbeam.one. We’re releasing a new alpha every two months on our push to beta which should occur in October. 🤞 This was a better alpha for me, with Alpha III being a bit of a stressful push. Alpha IV was better and I felt like I was able to get more done. Continue reading

It’s the first week of the month, time for your monthly status update for starbeam.one! Welcome to May We are here in May, with Alpha IV scheduled for launch next month. It is very heads-down for me (a good thing) and this post will be short-and-sweet. 880 Flares of Volume, Passing 3,500 Total Last month we did 880 Flares of volume for the month, which is pretty impressive considering we did 81 total for the month of December.

It’s the first Tuesday of the month, it’s time for a monthly status update on starbeam.one! ✨🚀 Welcome to Alpha III Today we’re announcing Alpha III, which is mostly comprised of quality improvements. Alpha III was meant to be a focus on quality and also key features on administration before we start marketing our application in earnest with formal advertising spend. However, with all the sheer commotion of onboarding new users, artists, and collectors, I only managed to get quality improvements into the codebase for this alpha. Continue reading
