โญ๏ธ indaStars โญ๏ธ 2021 summary

Dear Community ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ,

the time has come to put together a 2021 summary ๐Ÿฅณ for indaHash and indaStars ๐Ÿš€ developments.

After a  demanding 2020 we had to reorganize and restructure our company to adjust to the new reality. Our team of over 90 people has switched to remote work ๐Ÿ’ป very quickly thanks to the very broad toolset that we have already been using for smooth international communication. Some influencer budgets and categories were frozen, but new opportunities appeared ๐Ÿ†. We are happy to say that we are in a very healthy condition and keep building best possible solutions both for brands, influencers and agencies out there. As one of the strongest influencer marketing players, we believe that 2022 will be a year of mass crypto adoption and NFT explosion ๐ŸŽ‰. We want to secure our place in this space.

To summarize 2021 ๐ŸŽ† in DEV numbers, our team was able to complete more than 310 development tasks. More precisely:

  • โญ 83901 lines of code were written
  • โญ 7459 commits were made
  • โญ 2266 blockchain test transactions were accomplished

In terms of 2021 ๐ŸŽ‡ feature achievements:

  • โœ… First indaStars concept and landing page release (Jan-May 2021)
  • โœ… Tech research and Proof of Concept works (May – June 2021)
  • โœ… First Polygon blockchain integrations (June 2021)
  • โœ… Wallet infrastructure implementation and tests (June 2021)
  • โœ… Gas station implemented for costless transactions (August 2021)
  • โœ… Token minting and distribution tests (August 2021)
  • โœ… Internal card payment gateways integration (September 2021)
  • โœ… Final NFT cards with autograph designs implemented (September 2021)
  • โœ… Final landing page and project mechanics shared (October 2021)
  • โœ… User dashboard developments (July – December 2021)

In the beginning of October 2021 we were proud to announce that this long-awaited event has finally come โฐ. We presented you with our community version of the ๐Ÿ’– indaStars Landing Page! ๐Ÿ’–
On top of that, we have opened a dedicated discord channel ๐Ÿ’ฌ for the indaStars ๐Ÿš€ community.

That was the final stage before launching the ๐Ÿš€ indaStars ๐Ÿš€ platform โ€“ the first NFT signature-based platform where creators can create their own NFTโ€™s with digital ๐ŸŒ, verified โœ… signatures and give autographs ๐Ÿคฉ on the content that fans send to them. And they can do it โ€ฆ for free! ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ

Then community testing ๐Ÿงช (on a testnet platform) started on October 11th according to the roadmap posted on โญ๏ธ indastars.com. Tests were coordinated on a closed channel on our indaStars Discord server. 

Community testers reported about 30 requests, bugs ๐Ÿ› , etc., which were automatically transferred to the team and immediately analysed, discussed, considered and scheduled.

What have we accomplished until October 21st?

  • โœ… Here you can check the initial fixes and improvements package (more than 50 different small issues, bugs and fixes implemented) โ€“ ๐Ÿ‘‰ https://labs.indahash.com/indastars-status-update-15-10/
  • โœ… We switched from testnet to mainnet and verified the speed of the platform โ€“ the tests were successful!
  • โœ… NFT mass-distribution via creatorsโ€™ profiles 
  • โœ… We have significantly improved the UX of NFTs, views, and the functionalities available in the card details
  • โœ… We have added the โ€œExploreโ€ (basic version) tab, which allows viewing new NFTs that are created on the platform in real time!

On October 21st, we launched the public mainnet platform and the final tests of โญ๏ธindaStarsโญ๏ธ. In the period from October 21st to November 4th, public tests ๐Ÿ“ข were conducted on the mainnet, in order to discover all kinds of additional bugs and issues that have not been noticed ๐Ÿ‘€ during closed testnet tests and implement fixes.

On November 8th  we have cleaned ๐Ÿงน all content created during public community tests and switched to new smart contracts ๐Ÿ’ผ. 

๐ŸŒŸ The first official NFT ๐ŸŒŸ has been minted and the creators onboarding process has been initiated! ๐Ÿฅณ

Some new features were also included in the official public ๐Ÿ“ข version:

  • ๐Ÿ†• Minting mp3 audio files with a cover
  • ๐Ÿ†• Verification of indaStars account via Twitter
  • ๐Ÿ†• indaStars account registration and log in possible via Google, Facebook and Twitter
  • ๐Ÿ†• Credit card payments.

In the last week of November, we introduced the ๐Ÿคฉ NFT & !vibez report ๐Ÿคฉ

  • ๐Ÿ”ฅ Requesting autographs from verified creators module
