Interface monthly update – #9

We have been working on one big feature, slightly underestimated it’s complexity, so it will be delayed a bit as we are working around to make it really worth the wait. We have also spent an entire month going back and forth with Apple reviewers to get Interface into the store, have tried to convince them that it is ok to provide users with at least Etherscan links for NFT collections as it brings transparency, but all arguments fell on deaf ears for now 🤷🏻‍♀️

Highlights

  • We have noticed that over 85 Interface users are also FWB members: now all Friends with Benefits are allowlisted, and can see their fellow members during onboarding as well as in the search tab along with Farcaster & Lens friends (more details will follow soon);

  • We have run a few analytics on our members, found out pretty interesting stats: 72% of verified members own an ENS domain that is resolved to their addresses, of which 45% have set avatars. Will be sharing more insights in the future 📊;

  • Have been rewriting some code to avoid legacy dept to build up, along with improving performances on a few core API endpoints (i.e feed should be loading a bit faster).

Features

  • Share your profile web page, now if you click on the address you will have multiple options available in the context menu, copy, share and view on Etherscan. Also in your profile view you have a QR button to connect with people IRL;

  • You can now refresh collections metadata;

  • Added reporting for addresses, transactions and collections;

  • As an anti-feature, we had to remove all links to external marketplaces within NFT collections in accordance with Apple requirements. We hope it is a temporary measure and we’ll find a way to bring them back soon.

Traction

  • Interface users 1211 → 1345 +11% (on average during our private beta we have been growing 32% MoM and it’s like 100% organically, which according to Bryan Kim from a16z puts us into ok/goodish segment)

  • MAU 936 → 966 +3.2%

  • Minted Particles 135 → 138 +2.2% ✨

  • Total connections 17 957 → 21 107 +17.5%

  • Twitter followers 4382 → 4435 +1.2%

  • Farcaster followers 330 → 358 +8.5%

  • Mirror subscribers 503 → 525 +4.4%
