This release recap is all about longevity. We want our customers to be able to use Pinata to build real businesses with real business models—not just one-off projects that sizzle out. It’s a build market. And build is exactly what we want you to do.
We’re excited to introduce a new addition to our family of plans, some “gee, thanks” updates to make our platform easier to use, and an exciting opportunity for data-hungry builders who want to be alpha users for one of our biggest features yet.
Palooza: The Perfect Fit for Standing Out
A new plan? A new plan!
We talk to our customers a lot. Like, a lot a lot. One of the most consistent pieces of feedback was that businesses who were just hitting growth mode didn't have a plan that exactly matched what they needed. They had outgrown the Fiesta plan, but they weren’t quite ready to jump all the way to Carnival.
So what did we do? We made a plan that fits right in the middle. The Palooza plan is the perfect fit for businesses who have found success with their audience and are ready to scale. Marketplaces, projects with intensive data needs…Palooza plan is it. Check out the full post to see if it makes sense for your business.
Drag & Drop! Huzzah!
This one was a big request, and we get it. Pretty straightforward, but makes life a lot easier. Rather than just clicking and choosing files to upload like a cave person, now you can drag and drop. Easy uploads, so you can do stuff with them faster. Nuff said.
In-app Social Sharing
Ready for an easier way to share your sweet, sweet uploads with the world? Before, when you wanted to share your Pinata content, you had to copy the file’s URL from your dashboard. With our new in-app social sharing feature, you can instantly share any image or video that you upload across all your social channels including Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit, Telegram, Email, and Lens. Get in there and share your heart out.
Fresh. New. Look.
When you look good, you feel good. When you feel good, you create…good. Luckily, our new designs are better than our grammar.
Our design and engineering teams have spent a lot of time over the last few months revamping the Pinata dashboard. And it’s more than just looking better. The new layout gives Pinata a more organized feel, helping you manage and distribute your content more efficiently. Plus, it sets the foundation for the seamless integration of future features (hint hint wink wink).
Existing Pinata users shouldn’t be surprised by this one, but with the feedback we’ve gotten so far, we figured it was still worth sharing. Speaking of feedback, we’d love to hear yours.
Coming Soon: Analytics
The right data can change everything for your business. Our customers have asked for a way to see how audiences are interacting with their pinned content. This presents some challenges on IPFS, but we’re more than up to making it happen.
The Pinata team is working on an in-app analytics solution to help you understand your account and usage better. We’re releasing the solution as an alpha soon. If you’d like to get early access and provide valuable feedback on how to improve the product, we want you.

That’s it for us this time! As mentioned earlier, our focus is to help you build real businesses. We believe (and see) that there are so many incredible web3 projects that can turn into creative businesses that succeed, regardless of what the market is doing. If you’re not sure how to make that happen, the Pinata Discord is a great resource for helping flesh out ideas.
Until next time. Happy pinning!
