  • Tuesday, we are minting The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy. You can check out all the details and rarity on the minting page.

  • Thursday, we’re minting Scary Fiction Shorts, an anthology of H.P. Lovecraft short stories, including The Call of Cthulhu, which has the amazing quote, “The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.” It’s a Triple Mint and part of Monster Series 2.0.
  • Friday, we’re taking a snapshot for The Wizard Tim Audiobook airdrop.
  • Requirements: At least one eBook of The Wizard Tim.
  • Limits: No limits, one airdrop for each owned eBook.

  • Mint+Print Developments Continue: With the print integration taking more time, it’s allowing us extra opportunities to refine our technical system further.
  • Advancements in Payment Processing: We are making steps in integrating credit card acceptance for Cardano mints. The collaboration with the Stripe team has been excellent, and they are enthusiastic about our project. NMKR has proven, once again, to be a valuable partner, actively contributing to the development of new endpoints for us.
  • Mobile App Updates on the Horizon: Major updates for both iOS and Android apps have been submitted for approval. These enhancements include persistent reader settings per platform, seamless language selection across the Web Reader and Apps, and push notifications for the latest news.
  • V2 Mobile App Design Ready for Development: The design phase for our V2 mobile app is complete, and the project has been handed off to the development team for execution.
  • Final Touches on Parlamint V2: Parlamint V2 is in the final stages, and much of the minting has been passed to the business team, as well as the last few remaining items being crossed off that list. After this is thoroughly tested, we will begin adding more UX and tools around it to and keep pushing toward self-publishing!
  • Catalog Ingestion Engine Enhancement: The catalog Ingestion engine can now completely ingest any ONIX database (which is used for books and music by publishers and labels) to store metadata and query both digital and physical items.
  • Tune in for a Special Broadcast Tomorrow: Join Deezy’s live interview with Josh for an exclusive reveal of a significant announcement. You can watch at 10:30 AM EST.
