📱 Product

Highlight aims to lower the barrier to entry for the next 1M+ creators that want to build and create in web3.

Core Features:

  1. Create gated content - verify you hold token x in order to unlock access

  2. Launch a token - set mint price, supply, royalties, etc.

  3. Run an auction - no code contract generated auctions

The team also recently did a co-launch with Paragraph.xyz to allow writers to incorporate token embeddings in their newsletters...perfect for my use case :)

Special shoutout to Nat & team for getting me started on Highlight. All posts on the Web3 World newsletter can be collected. It takes me literally 30 seconds to create tokens for any post and the UX is really straightforward. Check out the mint page for this post here!

To me, the most interesting part of the product is enabling analytics for creators to understand who is interacting with their content on-chain. This makes it easy for users to see what's working and double down on their true fans. Think airdrops, token gated polls for top community members, etc.
