How's everyone feeling about the Twitter/Stripe + USDC announcement?

“Once creators receive their earnings, they can hold their balance on Polygon, or choose to bridge to Ethereum and exchange it into another currency. We plan to add support for additional rails and payout currencies over time.”

I guess this could be useful if creators want to use their earnings to buy assets that are available within the Polygon ecosystem. I do wonder what cut Stripe will take for crypto payouts, couldn’t quickly find this info on their website. I’d be way more excited about this, if the USDC was being paid on Ethereum mainnet and gas fees were below $1 per transaction.

It can't be far off now!

When Metapunk was setup, I grabbed the API keys from Stripe and dropped them in the admin/config for any future listings etc, then Stripe informed me that Metapunk was banned as they don't support the trading of NFTs. I was like "guys, can you see anywhere on the community where we are trading NFTs??"

They were pretty good in doing some research on the community and switching back it back on 😅

That’s web2.0 for ya! Glad they didn’t just ignore you though and actually reversed their censorship decision. Shopify has no problem with NFTs and I’m pretty sure they use Stripe.

Yeah you’re right 😂😂

Well next i’ll be using the forem ios repo to submit metapunk into the appstore, I’m not that confident..

I’ve never personally submitted a mobile app to an app store before, but I’m assuming that many of the checks these companies/platforms perform are automated. YouTube has a big problem with banning legit content but allowing straight up scams to exist on the platform. I guess machine learning and AI still has a long way to go.

Still seems very human via Apple, they login, submit articles, listen to podcasts etc. Reply with why they haven’t passed it, hence why the appstore is more trustworthy imo

That’s pretty cool if real humans are reviewing all submissions, sounds like a lot to do manually though.

Side-note: apparently Cardano is supposed to have an dApp Store up and running eventually. Sounds interesting from what they promised during their summit.

Oh nice find, i’ll have a ganders at that - Cardano City was my first step into NFT, managed to bag a gold samurai rarity during the launch, still have a few. It’s gone a bit quiet since but it looks like there is some interesting stuff coming in the future (based on their Discord)
