Bonfida Exclusive: Edition #4

November was a busy month for Bonfida. The Solana Name Service has witnessed a huge growth, as a result of the increasing popularity of domain names. Bonfida successfully delivered the on-chain messaging application Jabber, and established new partnerships with many Solana projects. Let’s check out the November Edition of the Bonfida Exclusive and find out all the good news.

This month we have Benson in the spotlight again. Benson is a famous Taiwanese KOL, a well known trader on FTX and also a DeFi enthusiast. He has shared some good thoughts about the Solana Name Service that shouldn’t be missed.

Now, without further ado, let’s dig into what Bonfida has been up to throughout November!

Announcements

Bonfida launched Jabber, an on-chain messaging application built on Solana.

Jabber is the very first mobile messaging app built on any blockchain and works just like your favourite messaging app. Jabber allows you to create a customizable user profile, send and receive tips in FIDA, and set up or or join group chats. You can easily monetize your DMs and groups by setting up a price per message (in SOL) that other users will have to pay to message you. This is the most important value of Jabber as it provides users with a trustless and decentralized way to monetize their interactions.
