July 2023 In Review

July was a very quiet month at Subsocial, as we were heads down and building after the excitement of June. Let’s quickly run through last month’s highlights:

The Spacers NFT Mint

The Spacers NFTs were officially minted on the Moonriver network! Everyone that bought a Spacer Pod last year now has their very own Spacer in their wallet. You can view the Spacers on Singular, or read the full announcement for more details.

Grill Decoded, Get Rewarded

Our Polkadot Decoded campaign came to a close, and rewards were distributed on July 6th.

TheWeek Event

This event took place during the last week of July, and Subsocial Content Lead Yung Beef gave a presentation about how Subsocial’s technology can be used to easily integrate social features into existing Web3 apps, with a very friendly user experience.

Creator Staking Update

Originally teased in our roadmap update from June, we have finalized the code for our creator staking pallet, and it is now being reviewed. After that, we will be testing it to squash any bugs before the release.

XCM Channel Update

As you may have heard, we have been working with the Moonbeam team to open an XCM channel between our two networks, enabling the transfers of tokens. Opening this channel requires a governance proposal on Moonbeam, and we were advised to wait a few days, as Moonbeam was transitioning to the new OpenGov model. However, there was a hiccup with this, and a 1–2 week delay until OpenGov could be implemented. Once this is resolved, we will be submitting our proposal to open a channel.


We should have more details about both of these, and more, in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. In the meantime, we’ll see you on-chain!
