CozyForest is a project I worked on with a team of three engineers that served as a platform for creators to connect with their true fans. 

The platform allows creators and artists to use NFTs to gate content on a Patreon-like platform. The platform also tracked and displayed analytics, allowed fan-to-fan communication, had an announcements channel for creator-to-fan engagement, supported native NFT display in posts, and was targeted at “web2.5” by allowed SSO for sign up while at the same time behind the scenes enabling complex custodial wallet interactions. 

The app is no longer hosted, so here is a video walkthrough instead:
