Dropstar backed by the Venly Wallet for privacy and security

User Story
Our users are paying for unique content and access to artists they love, not for the tech behind it. Integrating Venly enables us to make interactions and transactions very simple, plus the Venly team has been very supportive.
Rebecca Miller
Co-Founder

Dropstar is building an intuitive user experience that puts the fan utility first. Since many mainstream users still struggle with aspects of decentralised applications, they have chosen to integrate the Venly widget to onboard artists and their communities into using and transacting with smart contracts. Venly’s wallet is the perfect layer two solution. 

Dropstar has set about to make the purchase process as simplified as possible, in doing so, they needed to tackle three main issues: private key management, blockchain speed and transaction fees. The company chose to use Venly as the solution to the first point. With Venly, users will also have an experience they are used to using a traditional email and password or social login. With simplified transactions, customers and creators don’t need to be tech-savvy to create and access the content they want. 

The vision is to make unique creative assets collectable. People value cultural experiences, yet music has fallen into a commodity trap and is consumed mostly via streaming. The problem with that is how it devalues the creative work behind those assets. Web3 tools enable artists to add a layer of community and autonomy to their work, so they can make a decent living again. Dropstar empowers them with the infrastructure and expertise to make music moments and monetise them with their fans. 

Their first drop will be celebrated with a collection release party. To celebrate with them, join their Discord and sign up for the event.
