A big week for Beam with the Phase I Beam Staking campaign coming to a close, and plans for the future of private NFTs being deployed! Lots to unpack this week as we look toward Beamers old and new for their best feedback. Jump in and let us know your thoughts, and spread the latest from Beam!
The first iteration of Beam NFTs launched with much fanfare in October last year, and this year we are setting the stage to take private NFTs, and the encompassing market place to the next level! We have come with a list of features for Beam NFTs 2.0, and want you, the collectors and creators, to voice your desires and needs on what you so desire. Below is a list of planned features for the 2.0 Dapp release that we want feedback and additional input on. We share here the points, but ask that all feedback is pointed to the fresh Beam Forum post to share your thoughts and ideas!
This will enable any and all creators to mint their own NFTs, creating a permission-less means to do so
Enable Artists to engage easily with and reward their community with airdrops of tokens and NFTs for their previous and continued support
Bidding & Auctions
Allow NFTs to receive bids even if not listed for sale, and enable auctions for NFTs
Sorting & Filtering
Allow to filter search results based on different parameters to better find what one is looking for. This will include volume, price, holders, buy now/live bids, and metadata within collections
File Type Support
This will enable various file types to be supported as NFTs, such as GIFs, and audio files
This will allow collection creators to add and define a percentage of royalties on secondary sales. It will also be configurable, and be able to be pointed where wished e.g., to the creator, to a projects DAO, to holders
This feature will allow users to mint more than one NFT at a time. It will also enable minting ‘editions’ of NFTs, for example 1 through 50 out of 50 of the same NFT
An easy way for users to transfer ownership of NFTs without the involvement of a platform sale or royalties, for example if collectors are simply moving an NFT between their wallets
Enable metadata to be uploaded for individual NFTs and collections that will be included in their details. This will allow collectors to search for different traits, and give them an indication as to the rarity
Proof of Ownership
With transparent chains, if you show someone you own one NFT, you show them all that you own. This feature will allow collectors to prove they own NFTs without divulging everything else they own, including both fungible and non fungible assets
This will be the go to hub for all things upcoming in the Beam NFT space, with upcoming drops and releases to be added, giving an easy place to keep up to date on all things Beam NFT
Allow creators to provide a bio with a description on themselves and or the collection. This will also allow links to their various social media accounts for collectors to join their community
This will act as a way for users to give receive and take offers with a specific counterparty, all whilst maintaining trustlessness
Moderation / moderators
As with any platform, moderation soon becomes needed. The idea here is to provide the tools needed to enable moderators and moderation in a decentralised manner.
These are but some of the ideas for the Beam NFT 2.0 release. We look forward to hearing your feedback on the above, and sharing anything you think better empowers creators and enables collectors to better expand Beam and the private NFTs it enables.
The BeamX initial staking campaign has come to a completion and what a success it was! Phase I launched on October 21 2021, and came to a close after 3 months.
locked up ~20% of $BEAM total circulating supply across
1,000,000 $BEAMX distributed to $BEAM stakers
~78,000 wallets throughout the staking campaign
First Beam Contracts holding value
You can now withdraw your $BEAM from the smart contract and claim all your $BEAMX staking rewards.
Future staking campaigns are around the corner, and rumour has it the first of such will include stablecoins and AMM DEX. Huge additions to the ever growing Beam ecosystem!
It’s a Wrap!
