Profile Hover Plugin
We released a Profile Hovers, a new plugin that allows developers to integrate user profile information into their app with only 2 lines of code. Say goodbye to boring hex addresses in your UI for good! 🃏
Introducing, Profile Hovers
The easiest way to add social user profiles to your app. Integrate our simple plugin with 2 lines of code.
We now support digital collectibles in 3box.io profiles. Sign in to browse your gallery and curate a few favorites to appear in your public profile. When we launched this feature last Thursday, we experienced our single biggest day of user growth ever! 🚀
Introducing, 3Box Collectibles Gallery
Browse your digital collectibles, curate your favorites, and let your personality shine!
To celebrate the launch, we’re giving away special edition 3Box Space Narwhal Kudos. Create a profile on 3box.io, verify your twitter account, then share your profile URL in our Discord to receive yours.
Verified Email Addresses
We now support verified email addresses on 3box.io. By verifying your email address once on 3Box, you can experience more secure and seamless onboarding to dapps by not needing to enter and verify your email at every single app you use. Do it once and be done! ✉️
3Box Space Narwhal Kudos
To celebrate our support for collectibles in 3Box profiles, we’re giving away special edition 3Box Space Narwhal Kudos to our community. A big thanks goes out to the Gitcoin team for making this possible! 🏆
To receive your Space Narwhal:
Public Spaces API
This week we’re adding two new Spaces API methods that allow developers to easily query for a list of spaces owned by the user, and then to read public data saved in the spaces. These will enable more seamless public data sharing without requiring the user’s interaction. Now other users of the same dapp and also third-party dapps can easily view a user’s public space data.
Threads v1 | Public Comments 💬
We’re working on a spec for public comment threads. Threads are a p2p communication feature for 3Box that we will implement using OrbitDB feed stores and have many applications for dapps. They can be used to store user-generated posts, comments, chats, contacts, and anything else you would want to store in a log. We’re working with a few launch partners to refine the spec, so if you want to collaborate, reach out in Discord!
Data Management UI
With the addition of the Spaces API, which enables developers to create private, app-specific data stores in 3Box, we’ve seen an increase in the amount of user data being saved in 3Box from apps. We’ve heard that users (and developers) want a better way for users to view and manage all of this information in a logical way. As a result, we’ll be adding data management capabilities to the Profiles app on 3box.io. 🔥
