Today we’re excited to announce that we’ve added support for digital collectibles on 3box.io! Browse your entire collectibles gallery alongside the rest of your web3 profile and curate a few favorites for others to see. We believe that collectibles represent an important piece of a user’s aggregate web3 identity, reputation, and personality, and we’re proud to now offer them in 3Box profiles.

How Collectibles Work on 3Box

  1. Visit your profile on 3box.io
  2. Browse and enjoy your entire collectibles gallery
  3. Choose three favorites to be displayed on your public profile
  4. Broadcast your personality and reputation throughout web3

Explore Your Gallery 🖼️

When you sign in to your profile on 3box.io on desktop or mobile, you will notice that your collectibles have automatically been populated for you to browse and enjoy.

We get collectibles data from the public Ethereum network using the OpenSea API, which is the most popular way to get data related to ERC721 tokens. OpenSea supports most popular collectibles contracts including Gitcoin Kudos, SuperRare, KnownOrigin, CryptoKitties, Decentraland, and many more. However if you own collectibles in a contract that isn’t supported by OpenSea, those collectibles will not be displayed on 3box.io at this time.

Gallery Section

The Gallery section displays every collectible that you own. From this view you can open a collectible and see its expanded view, or select favorites to be displayed on your public profile.

Choose Your Favorites 💙

In addition to visually browsing your gallery, you can also select your favorites to be added to your public profile. When others view your public profile, they will see your favorite collectibles alongside the rest of your profile information. By curating your favorites, you are curating your web3 personality!

Free Your Personality and Reputation 🎉

Favorite collectibles are a critical piece of your identity and reputation on web3. In aggregate, collectibles represent your interests, your tastes, your communities, your achievements, your assets in various forms, and much more — but beyond that — when you select three from your collection to display on your public profile, you are curating what you would like others to think about you. In a sense, favorite collectibles represent your unique, distinctive personality.

Integration Partner Apps

3Box.js and GraphQL APIs
Third-party apps and integration partners can use the 3Box.js and GraphQL APIs to look up user’s profile information to display it in their app, so your profile and favorite collectibles can follow you around the web, adding value to your social interactions across all platforms.

Profile Hovers Plugin
We’ve also created a lightweight plugin that allows partner apps to replace user hex addresses in their app with social profile hovers containing social metadata with two lines of code. We haven’t yet added support for displaying favorite collectibles in the hover, but we will soon. If you’re interested in helping out with this feature, reach out on our Discord!
