SIP 016: Ratified! 🎉
Thanks to Friedger Müffke and Dan Trevino, the Stacks ecosystem will benefit from smoother flow and improved standards for metadata.
These SIP Authors are long-term loyal community members who also helped to create the NFT standard (SIP-009) and many other standards. You can follow their work on Github here:
Hiro x Coinbase
Funding your Hiro wallet just got easier thanks to Hiro’s latest integration with Coinbase Pay!
Here’s a quick overview for how to get $STX in your wallet faster than you can say “web3 on #bitcoin.“
  1. Select “Buy” from the Hiro Wallet home screen and then “Coinbase.” Please note, this integration is currently limited to purchases in the United States. International support is coming soon.
  2. Enter the amount of $STX to purchase and your payment details.
  3. Once purchased, the STX will arrive directly in your Hiro Wallet account for usage with the Stacks app of your choice, such as buying an #NFT or investing in a #DeFi protocol.
