A couple of details and a click of a button, and you’re live on over 8 million TVs around the world, straight from OBS. Noice. But we’ve been playing around with additional features that might help Bolt+ live streamers, such as importing the live chat from your channel into an OBS dock. Here’s how. — Custom Docks - In OBS, “docks” are the small control panels that make up the OBS interface. Scenes, Sources, Audio Mixer and so forth. This awesome streaming tool also lets you create custom docks from any web address, which is what we’re going to do here. By adding the live chat from your Bolt+ channel as an OBS dock, you no longer have to keep an eye on a browser tab as well as your streaming control centre. You can have it all right there in OBS, at your fingertips and in front of your eyeballs.Here you can see the standard OBS docks highlighted in yellow. We’re going to add a new one. — Pop Out the Bolt+ Live Chat - Go to Bolt+ and sign in. Click your icon in the top right corner, followed by “View Profile”.

Bolt+ to collaborate with WBC Boxing and VIVE TV
Almost everyone is familiar with the bright lights and fanfare of a main title card in boxing. It is a dazzling affair, where two of the greatest combatants on the planet meet face to face in an epic showdown. After the dust clears, one victor remains and their name is forever etched into the pantheons of boxing legend. But all legends have to start somewhere, and that’s what the initiative between VIVE TV, the WBC and Bolt+ will facilitate. Though Tyson and Ali became household names, few members of the public had heard of them prior to that. In a sport like boxing, where an athlete’s success is critically dependent on their reputation and persona, ‘not being heard of’ can immobilise a career before it gets started. There are some options to help them; social media has provided a useful tool for a budding fighter to build a fan base. This, in turn, can help them build a reputation. Video streaming platforms have also made it easier to demonstrate skills and publicise talent. Even then, fighters run into several issues: Current social media platforms require that you pay for essential distribution and outreach., It’s difficult to monetise content., Video platforms are too saturated with content, resulting in an empty echo chamber., It’s our belief at Bolt+ that fighters shouldn’t need to sacrifice financial sustainability and community growth potential by using services that prioritise the needs of the plat...
Chingari and Bolt Global Team Up to Bring India’s Leading Content Creators onto Social TV
Bolt+ brings Chingari creators to the TV Across the rise and peak of web2 platforms, content creators have learned that it’s their imagination and work upon which a platform’s success relies. Any benefits have been greatly skewed towards the operator on web2, rather than the creator. So it’s no surprise that as the digital world transitions into web3, platforms are emerging that offer a much fairer deal to the millions of people who are developing that amazing content. Leading the charge are Chingari and Bolt+. Both platforms are tightly focused on building a sustainable creator economy that benefits everyone fairly. Platforms upon which creators can build a community, a content catalogue to be proud of, and a genuine career. Chingari is one of India’s biggest rising social stars, offering a social, short-form video platform that’s supercharged with a vibrant web3 ecosystem. With more than 50 million users and boasting over 1.6 billion views, it topped the Indian download charts and provided a home to the country’s biggest creators, along with their huge communities of fans. Bolt has approached social content from a different angle. Bolt+ is a web3 content sharing platform with a smart TV app that’s pre-installed on over 8 million TVs, a self-custody BoltX digital asset wallet, and its own EVM-compatible media-focused blockchain, BoltChain. Combined with the BoltOS toolset, content creators have everything t...
Bolt Global partners with Gametacus!
Bolt Global and Gametacus unite to make blockchain technology easily accessible for all gamers. The main priority for most Web3 gaming projects is to successfully convert Web2 gamers. However, this ambitious goal has so far delivered varying results, most of which have not been positive. In trying to create a completely unique Web3 gaming experience, these same projects lost sight of the very audience they were trying to engage. We’ve found there are three common gripes when it comes to the Web3 gaming space: The barrier to entry is still too high, Gaming experiences are poor in comparison to Web2, Gaming benefits soon go stale, Web2 gamers are simply finding it too difficult to understand, and are not enchanted by the games they do try. And if they do get around to playing one for a while, they find that the game’s longevity is sorely lacking due to problematic mechanics. Our belief at Bolt Global is that the best technologies (regardless of industry) are the ones that require the least amount of thought to use, and consistently deliver a reason to use it. In other words, accessibility and utility are king. We should know, It is the very foundation which we built our own ecosystem on. Which is why we’re excited to announce a new partnership with Gametacus, a Web3 mobile multiverse gaming ecosystem. Gametacus’ vision is much the same as ours; leveraging the power of blockchain technology in a way that’s both t...

According to several reports, Wyre, a cryptocurrency payments firm, is allegedly sunsetting its business.

On Jan. 4, 2023, Axios published a report that said Wyre, the digital currency payments platform, was winding down the company’s operations. Furthermore, several other reports about the situation stemmed from former employees and known associates. JD Ross, the founder of the music investment platform Royal.io said:
Looks like Wyre just shut down their business. Everyone in our shared Slack channel disabled except the GC. Hearing no severance.
“We'll continue to do everything we can, but I want everyone to brace themselves for the fact that we will need to unwind the business over the next couple of weeks,” CEO Ioannis Giannaros wrote to staff in an email seen by Axios.

|Payments Firm Bolt Scraps Deal to Acquire Crypto Company Wyre
California-based online payments company Bolt is pulling out of an agreement to buy crypto provider Wyre. The news of the scrapped deal, which was agreed to earlier this year, comes amid plunging valuations in the crypto and fintech sectors.Bolt Gives Up Plan for $1.5 Billion Wyre Acquisition
Bolt Financial, a U.S. technology company headquartered in San Francisco, said Friday it had scrapped a deal to buy crypto infrastructure provider Wyre Payments, Reuters reported on Saturday. A definitive agreement to acquire Wyre for a reported $1.5 billion was announced by the e-commerce platform in early April.
The deal was considered one of the largest crypto business acquisitions this year. After a funding round in January, Bolt was last valued at $11 billion. The report notes, however, that high tech valuations have since come under increased pressure as investor sentiment was hit by recession fears and negative developments in the equity markets.
Payments processor Stripe and fintech Klarna Bank have also taken significant valuation cuts, Reuters pointed out. Industry valuations have dropped significantly in the crypto sector as well during the market slump in the past months.
In a released statement, Bolt emphasized it will continue its partnership with Wyre. The online checkout firm elaborated that remaining independent would allow it to focus on its core areas of business. Company CEO Maju Kuruvilla was quoted as stating:
We will continue our existing commercial partnership wi...
