A down market hasn't stopped top-tier projects and big brands from building in the web3 space—and it shouldn't stop those of us building the tools and infrastructure the future decentralized web is going to need when the next boom cycle comes about.
What's the difference between token gating and decentralized unlockable content? tl;dr — token gating is a centralized approach to providing access to exclusive content that mimics the web2 platforms' walled-garden approach (i.e., you don't really own all those ebooks in your Kindle library), while decentralized unlockable content provides true ownership of digital goods via decentralized storage and access.
Darkblock launches PFP Content Factory to give PFP project founders a quick and easy way to spread the vibes
PFP Content Factory lets project founders easily generate derivatives of an entire PFP collection and deliver them to holders via their NFTs, offering a fun way (also free!) to engage with their community, develop some camaraderie, and generally just spread the vibes.
March is Music NFT Month. Throughout the month, we'll explore how musicians are using NFTs and Web3 technology to find new ways to engage with fans and make a living from their work.
The Web3 Music Vault, an app built atop Darkblock’s protocol for decentralized content delivery and monetization, won 2nd place and a $20K prize in Magic Eden's recently completed Creator Monetization Hackathon.
We’re proud of our partnership with Omega RUNNER because it highlights one of Darkblock’s core advantages—the ability for creators to use NFTs to distribute their content in a web3-native way that both protects their underlying IP from being right-click-saved and offers their collectors a decentralized method for consuming the content.
We believe one meaning of decentralization is ownership and access to an NFT's unlockable assets without relying on centralized gatekeepers. But until our protocol is integrated everywhere a collector interacts with their NFTs, we want to help collectors access their unlockable content where they hang out most. Our new Chrome extension enables NFT collectors to access their unlockable content right on OpenSea.
Darkblock is thrilled to announce our latest partner, Monark Market, an NFT marketplace designed specifically for metaverse assets.
Royalties on sales should never have become the be-all, end-all business model for NFTs. The fact they did demonstrates how unimaginative we've been as a space when it comes to understanding blockchain technology's potential impact on how creators can make a living from their work. At Darkblock, we believe NFTs aren't the business model—they are a key that unlocks business models. Here are four unique income-generating ideas for creators that are possible to develop using the Darkblock Protocol.
Our mission at Darkblock is to enable creators to harness the power of web3 and realize a new creator economy free from platform control. This series allows us to not only highlight and share the talented work of our community, but gain a better understanding of what tools we need to benefit all of us! And on that note, it is our pleasure to introduce MegaRetro.
