What an Eventful Q2!
Time really has flown by!
As we’re braving through the latest crypto winter, and bear market after bear market, Refinable is moving forward and getting stronger. We’ve managed to roll out a few new features (and announce some upcoming ones too!), and have celebrated our FIRST ANNIVERSARY!
As the Refinable community continues to grow, we’re even more motivated to push the boundaries of Web3 e-commerce. Seeing creators and brands succeed continues to motivate us in supporting more individuals, businesses, events, and brands to feel confident in navigating the Web3 experience.
Q2 marks a turning point for the Refinable team and the future that we are building. We shifted our focus to supporting creators and creating a community within the Refinable ecosystem. By giving more opportunities for collaboration and highlighting artists and storefront creators, we have seen a 126% increase in Refinable storefronts! We can’t wait for Q3!
Refinable’s 1 Year Anniversary 🎂
The Refinable team is incredibly humbled to garner this much support and validation from our community, the crypto industry, and beyond. We celebrated our first anniversary on May 16th, 2022 and we’re excited for the future of Refinable and all the untapped potential as the internet transitions from Web2 to Web3.
As part of our anniversary festivities, we’ve hosted an AMA and can’t wait to bring more opportunities to connect with our community. Last but not least, we’ve reflected on what we’ve done so far, and can’t wait to move on forward to creating the set of tools that will redefine how Web3 commerce actually happens.
Join Us on Discord! 👋
Refinable is also in the midst of launching campaigns geared towards more community engagement and outreach. That’s right, we upgraded our Discord server! We’ve thought about focusing more of our energy on Discord and creating a fun and intimate space where the Refinable community can connect, network, and get in touch with the Refinable team. We want to bring our community together and keep everyone updated with all the current news happening at Refinable!

Set Custom Fees in Storefronts 💸
It’s a great time to remind you that Refinable Storefronts users can set custom fees for their storefronts. Custom fees are a way for creators to earn commission from their hard work on their NFT artworks. It also provides flexibility for storefront owners because custom fees can be changed more than once!
Currently, the maximum amount for custom fees is 10%. However, fees are only charged to buyers and not sellers. On top of that, by using Refinable Storefronts, the platform has no extra charge so you can keep what you earn! What are you waiting for?
New Partnership with Ethermon 🤝
In May, we announced a strategic partnership with Ethermon in order to bring fresh faces to NFT gaming. The partnership with Ethermon will the transition of creators from Web2 to Web3. With Ethermon supplying the content for NFTs and Refinable’s ecosystem offering an easy and accessible way of creating and trading limited NFT items, this collaboration will pave the way for creators to explore NFT gaming to its maximum potential.
As part of this partnership, we’ve launched a competition with Ethermon and Polygon Studios where users can design a ‘Mon’ of their own in order to win from a prize pool valued at a total of $50K USDT. Artists who will have the unique opportunity to create custom Ethermon NFTs, and have them featured on Refinable’s marketplace.
By the way, it’s not too late to enter! Submissions are due July 30th, 2022 – don’t forget to schedule this in your calendars!
Monthly Storefront Spotlight ✨
Refinable Storefronts really grew this past quarter! From 27 stores to now 129 stores, we are excited to have more users become storefront owners. To support our storefront owners, we created a monthly Storefront Spotlight to showcase some of the most interesting designed storefronts with cool branding and aesthetics.
We showcased REVU Warriors and their game-fi platform. Their project is a limited NFT collection designed for utilities and metaverse capabilities in real-time. In their ecosystem, they have a mobile app to help users track their staking benefits from their REVU Warrior NFT. If you’re interested in buying one, you can check them out here: revu-unitynft.refinable.store!
Q2 Reflections ✍️
As we grow one year older, it means that our team is growing bigger. Our ambitions and responsibilities are also growing in size. We are lucky to partner with not only one but two game-changing companies as an on-chain advisor! While we’re stepping up to the plate as Web3 mentors, we hope to bring more opportunities for digital creators to shine with our projects and collaborations. Thank you all for trusting us during these tough times!

Refinable began as a decentralized foundation for creators, traders, and collectors to transact with digital assets, but we believe the future is to own your brand and liquidity. By offering decentralized Web3 creator and marketplace tools, we now aim to empower the next generation of Web3 businesses with the tools they need to succeed.
