How to Get Your First Boombox

Prerequisites

Process

  1. Scroll down to find the section that says “Start Stacking with Boomboxes!” and select the button that says “Get a Boombox”
  2. Select the “Continue” button to approve stacking via Boomboxes on the next screen”
  3. This will pull up the Stacks Wallet extension where you’ll submit a Stacks transaction. Approve the transaction to continue.
  4. Wait for the transaction to be confirmed on the Stacks network. Remember that Stacks is anchored to Bitcoin, so you may need to wait 30+ minutes for this to happen.
  5. Once the transaction is confirmed, you will be able to set the parameters for your Boombox (Note: You may need to refresh the page first. If you’re having issues getting the creation form to appear, refresh the home page, wait a minute or two, then select “Get a Boombox”).
  6. If you haven’t already, review the “How does this work?” slides at the top— it’s got important details about how Boomboxes work.
  7. Scroll down to the Setup section and specify how much you want to stack with your Boombox. There’s a 100 STX minimum, but no upper limit.
  8. Review the callouts, the select “Create This Boombox” when you’re ready to proceed.
  9. You will need to approve another transaction with the Stacks Wallet extension. Approve the transaction so it is submitted to the Stacks network.
  10. Wait for the transaction to be confirmed on the Stacks network. Again, this could take 30+ minutes.
  11. Once the transaction is confirmed, we will issue you a Boombox NFT that is labeled with the amount of STX you stacked. Receiving your Boombox can take 30+ minutes.
  12. After 3 weeks, we will distribute a reward payout in STX to you (or if you transferred your Boombox to another address, that address will receive the reward).

Behind the Scenes

  • We’re using Friedger Pool as our community stacking pool, so that’s where your STX will be stacked.
  • Stacking cycles occur about every ~2 weeks. To make Boomboxes super simple for end users, we opted to launch new editions monthly, which means they operate on an every-other-cycle basis.

Who’s Making Boom?

What’s Next for Boom?

  • A marketplace for your custom NFTs and Boomboxes (thanks for your patience on this!)
  • BTC payout option for Boombox rewards
  • A new home screen that focuses on your NFTs more than $ balance
  • We’ll stay pretty tight-lipped on this one until it’s ready…but we’ve got some pretty amazing ideas for supporting creators in brand new ways
