Web3 introduced digital ownership to the internet, enabling creators and brands to build more direct relationships with their fans, while also capturing more of the value they collectively create. We’re in the midst of a paradigm shift, from one where creators build on borrowed land at the whims of the platforms they rely on, to one where they can build and own complete ecosystems where they and their community benefit from the value they collectively create.
Over the past year, we’ve been building with and listening to creators, and hearing their frustration around the lack of easy-to-use tools to onboard one’s community into web3, and build rich experiences for collectors.
This is why we built Bonfire — the simplest and most powerful no-code platform builder for creators and their communities. We create tools to help creators build custom-branded sites for their community, integrated natively with their digital assets and content 🔥
Throughout our beta, we’ve had the privilege of working with hundreds of creators pushing the space forward through rich, web3-enabled experiences for their community, from custom NFT mint and airdrop experiences, to gated content and curated experiences for collectors.
While there have been far too many experiences to list them all out, here are just some of the highlights:
We helped Odesza reward collectors of their NFT All-Access Pass, letting them claim 2 free tickets to any stop on their recent “The Last Goodbye” tour through a branded claim page, powered by Bonfire
We teamed up with Daniel Allan on his Glass House drop, selling out 1,000 music NFTs in 24 hours
We partnered with artist Reo Cragun and Sound.xyz on Reo’s latest EP Frameworks, which doubled as the debut of the Sound Protocol
Podcaster Adam Levy drove >9.5k free NFT mints for “The Vault”, a gated library of content from 9 influential creators in web3, hosted on his Bonfire site
Recently we’ve teamed up with the Bankless crew to help power their Bankless Collectibles series, shifting the content NFT meta to podcasting (watch this space 👀)
And since our founding, we’ve been incredibly fortunate to have raised $6.2m from NEA, Variant Fund, Palm Tree Crew Crypto, Libertus Capital, Collab Currency, Pear VC, Coinbase Ventures, Not Boring Capital, and Seed Club Ventures, alongside angels such as Cooper Turley, Lenny Rachitsky, Maya Bakhai, Trevor McFredries, and Cuy Sheffield.

At Bonfire we continue to find excitement and purpose in helping bring creators and brands closer to their biggest fans, on their terms, and in branded spaces they control. We believe creators in web3 will begin to look and act more and more like platforms, as they leverage new capabilities around digital ownership to identify and build deeper and more direct relationships with their fans.
We’d like to take this chance to thank you, the creator, for trusting us with your community and brand - we don’t take that responsibility lightly.
