Project Update: Moonbeam's First Prioritized Feature: You Decide!

Greetings from sunny, humid, and hot Florida!

As promised, I am here to talk to you about reaching our first stretch goal. I want to use this first milestone to establish a few things we strongly believe in at Moonbeam: transparency and valuing what you want out of Moonbeam.

So, for our first stretch goal, we will actualize these beliefs by having a candid and open discussion with you and the Moonbeam team to help shape Moonbeam's future in the way you want!

This will happen over the course of a few steps, and we encourage you to engage with us and the community as we complete each one. 

Step 1. Collect data to determine if the first feature is creator or viewer focused. 

This will be accomplished via a poll on BackerKit that ends at 11:59pm PDT on July 30th. The poll is attached to this update at the end! Most live streaming platforms bucket their platform features into two categories: features for creators and features for viewers. At Moonbeam, we want to be the most creator-obsessed platform on the internet, and we fundamentally see creators as an essential element of Moonbeam. What sets us apart from other platforms is that we don’t see the other individuals as just “viewers”; we see them as “fans.” Many fans might start off just checking out streams or chatting in a Realm, but we believe many fans will run communities, write posts, chat about engaging topics, and become creators themselves, but in new and novel ways. So, we want to gather data transparently to see what features you and the community of Moonbeam want us to prioritize initially. To do this, we ask that you answer a straightforward question, “What type of feature should Moonbeam prioritize? A feature for creators or a feature for viewers?” With this question, we purposefully use the creator/viewer paradigm to get to the root of the Moonbeam community's needs. This helps us gather data to build our team and establish specific departments within Moonbeam to focus on different aspects of the Moonbeam community and ecosystem.

Step 2. Present feature choices. 

Once you let us know if the first prioritized feature should be creator or viewer focused, we will present several feature choices to you and explain them in detail. You and the community will have time to discuss these with us, and then we will put them up for a vote. Once the community votes on the feature they want, we will prioritize the one that gets the most votes.

From here, we rinse and repeat as we hit stretch goals or when we come to certain milestones during the alpha or beta phase. The intent is that together, we create a feedback loop to ensure we intimately understand our community and your needs. It would be easier for us to make these decisions and roll out features randomly, but we have the luxury of being a new platform and getting to know you all before Moonbeam becomes home to millions of creators and fans worldwide. We’ll use this method as long as possible, so let’s take advantage of it!

So now it is discussion time! Let's work together to create the best live streaming platform ever created. 

Cheers!

Project Update: Less than $1k left to STRETCH GOAL ONE 😱

SO CLOSE TO A SOUNDTRACK STRETCH GOAL YOU CAN TASTE IT

We're tickled pink at the progress of the campaign as we thunder toward the halfway point. 

UPDATES IN THE PIPLINE

  • New stretch goal reveals
  • A concise summary of the Voidstream Interviews scheduled for your viewing enjoyment this week
  • Coming soon: an AMA with me, Cameron, and Jack Panic himself as we discuss Voidstream and the SOS: Source of Signal adventure we're designing for Mothership RPG. 

TONIGHT

Cameron will be snuggling up with former Ennie nominee, longtime TTRPG contributor, and current Moonbeam COO Anthony Joyce-Rivera to talk shop.  Check it out! 

a whole lotta handsome for just one slide


IF YOU ARE NOT FINISHED SPENDING YOUR MONEY

There are several exciting crowdfunding projects going on RIGHT NOW we encourage you to consider. 

BEFORE THE FLOOD
Clawhammer Games


I said that! Me! Cameron!


TABLETOP TEMPEST
An actual play extravaganza 


Tabletop Tempest is a TTRPG actual play channel founded by immigrants/children of immigrants. All three Founders are BIMPOC and represent various cultures in the United States (Brazilian, Japanese, Korean, and Mexican). We, along with cast on and off screen, also represent an array of qualities that are not represented in actual plays enough, such as voices from queer/LGBTQ+, disabled, gender-diverse, and neurodivergent communities. ​Because of this, we value diversity in every aspect of the stories we weave

Okay that's it. Very excited for the horrifying developments ahead. 

Stay tuned,

Cameron

Project Update: Moonbeam Updates for the Week!

Happy Monday everyone, Anthony here with a few updates about things to look forward to this week!

Live Streams:
Monday: Tonight at 8pm EDT / 7pm CDT / 5pm PDT, I join Cameron from the VOIDSTREAM to discuss TTRPGs, actual plays, and the horror genre!

Join us tonight!


Later this week: Pat will live stream his work on Pyxis. He'll make these streams engaging so you can participate and mess around with Pyxis yourself! I'll be visiting family in Florida, so I'll cheer Pat on from afar!

Next week, I'll be going to Gen Con, so if you're there, I hope to see you around!

Besides live streams, the engineering team is hard at work continuing to build Moonbeam. A large part of the team is focusing on Pyxis—Pyxis is getting close to living off Moonbeam, too, so you can use Pyxis in other places to help give you the comfort you need to create in peace or use it within your own communities on other platforms!

See you all tonight if you can make it! Cheers!

Project Update: Moonbeam is getting noticed!

Hello Moonbeam friends, 'tis I, Anthony (you can tell I'm a TTRPG nerd at heart). I hope you all are enjoying your weekend!

This upcoming week, we'll be doing some more live streams, and Pat will be doing some while he works on Pyxis! We have some new and exciting news to share about Pyxis—news about how you all might be able to start using it soon, even before alpha phase and off Moonbeam on other platforms!

In other good news, Moonbeam is starting to make a splash and is getting noticed, all thanks to you and your support in sharing our story with others. Check out the video below. You'll see that we are heading into a big year, and with you backing us here on BackerKit, you've become the catalyst for launching Moonbeam into the live streaming space!


Today, we are $620 dollars away from our first stretch goal!! We are beyond excited to see that we're about to hit $50,000 in funding—thank you all so much!

You'll hear from us again on Monday when I shoot out info about Monday's live stream. Let us know if you want me or the Moonbeam team to discuss anything specific with you during our live streams—this is your show and your platform, and the entire Moonbeam team is here to speak to you about what you want!

Cheers!

P.S. I played in a Warhammer 40K tournament with my Dark Angels today and had some fun. Check out these beautiful models—the Emperor be praised!

PROJECT UPDATE

Project Update: We’ve funded! Shall we announce our first stretch goal?

Wow, everyone! Thank you so much for supporting this project and helping to bring The Anywhere Door to life! With the Moonbeam crowdfunding campaign funded, we can’t wait to see all of the amazing communities and realms that will be constructed in the future. 

We thought this might be a great time to announce our first stretch goal!

Through this campaign, we’re funding two pools of grant money for streamers: the Cypher Stream Creator Fund, and the established streamer grants. The Cypher Stream Creator Fund will distribute $2,500, in $500 packages, directly to small or new streamers, to help them launch their dream Cypher stream! The established streamer grants will do something similar, supporting existing names in the MCG community as they bring exciting new shows to The Anywhere Door, with an additional $2500 grant pool for creators like Cypher Unlimited, Qedhup, DM Tales, Mr. Tarrasque, and other established streamers.

Our first stretch goal? MCG will match the money raised for these funds! That’s right—at $19,000 MCG will match the funds raised and add $2,500 for each of these funds. That means we’ll be able to support TEN new Cypher streamers with the Cypher Stream Creator Fund. And the pool for established streamers increases to $5000.

But that’s not all! Not only will MCG match the original funding levels for these pools—we will also extend that match to every stretch goal in the future. For example, if the next stretch goal increases the established streamer grants by $3,000, MCG will match it! Every dollar raised by this campaign for support of streamers will be doubled by MCG.

We are truly dedicated to creating lasting resources for creators in our spaces, including funding the launch and continuation of as many creative, entertaining, and fun streams as possible. Help us bring this vision to life! Let’s get to that stretch goal, and continue to build a community we’re excited to be a part of! 

Psst... we'll open the application process for the Cypher Stream Creator Fund shortly after this campaign concludes. The application window will run through the end of October. If you're interested in a grant, start thinking about your pitch now, and you'll be ready to apply in August! 

Thanks again for your support!
 —Team MCG

Project Update: Cooking with Moonbeam Live Stream Tonight!

Happy Wednesday!

Tonight we have a special live stream for you at 9pm EDT / 8pm EDT / 6pm PDT!

I’m going onto Rudy Basso’s Twitch channel where Rudy will be cooking my grandmothers special recipe! You can also join us on BackerKit to watch the live stream!

Growing up as a child in South Florida, I enjoyed visiting “Mom,” my loving grandmother Yvelise. Every weekend I visited Mom, she would make me a special treat as “Papi,” my grandfather, would turn on black and white films for us to watch. We called Mom’s treat “Yellow Hot Cereal,” and later, I came to know it by its true name, “Crema de Maiz.”

Mom perfected this dish as she grew up in Puerto Rico. As I grew up, I wanted to learn the recipe for myself. Mom never kept a recipe, so I had to watch her countless times as she masterfully crafted this delicious treat. Over time, I learned how to make yellow hot cereal, and I made a perfect recipe for it. 

Join us tonight as Rudy cooks it live while we  also talk about Moonbeam!
