Bello (@bellosights) • Hey
Bello is on a mission to make blockchain data more accessible and understandable for crypto-native creators.
- From the moment we launched Bello, the feedback was consistent:
"Incredible insights! But how do I directly engage with these wallets?"
We heard you. Loud and clear.
Introducing Mass Messaging on Bello powered by @xmtplabs.lens.
Planning your first music NFT drop and want to contact a particular group of wallets interested in onchain music? Find them on Bello and send them a message.
Say thanks to those who've collected every NFT? No prob.
Releasing a new feature and want to tell your users? Done.
Communication forms the bedrock of any community or company.
From @lensprotocol followers to those connecting their wallets on your site, IYK swag collectors, and @poapxyz.lens enthusiasts, web3 audiences are scattered and traditional channels aren't enough.
Bello solves this.
With Mass Messages, onchain insights meet the inbox.
We ensure your voice doesn't just echo—it converses, connects, and cultivates a thriving community.
Now you can target and segment wallets using Bello's insights and broadcast messages to wallets if they have XMTP enabled.
How does it work?
We've upgraded "Actions" to include a new CTA: Message.
Upon clicking, you'll be prompted to sign to unlock the floodgates of crafting your first message.
With mass messaging comes great responsibility.
Spam is no joke - it's why we're empowering wallet owners with choice in every message.
V1 of Messages includes opt-out links for those who do not want to receive further communications from certain senders.
Mass messaging is the right next step and we couldn't be more excited to roll this out to vetted enterprise customers.

Thank you to everyone who has made the first year of Lens Protocol so special and groundbreaking. Lens has brought together builders, creators, communities, and friends, all while in beta.
There's so much planned for the second year ahead, and we can't wait to continue to grow with all of you.
Who did you become frens with on Lens?
🎨 by @nftsushi.lens and all collect proceeds go directly to the artist.
- We made progress yesterday by adding a new feature to Bello 🍄 that allows you to upload NFT contracts in bulk.
This improvement strengthens our Custom Searches feature, which previously only supported building mass searches through a drop-down menu or uploading wallet addresses.
With the latest update, you can now upload NFT contract addresses in bulk.
Simply toggle between "Wallets" or "Contracts" to select the upload type, and ✨voila✨ you're good to go!
💡 It's all in the toggle baby.

- We just completed the first week of a16z's Crypto Startup School, and are thrilled to share our experience with you. As creators ourselves, we thought it would be valuable to document our journey as we navigate this three-month accelerator program.
In this blog and podcast, we will share some of the insights and ideas we gained during the first week of CSS and how they are shaping Bello. Specifically, we’re taking note of where we are today, and where we’ll be at the end of May when the accelerator commences.
Throughout the week, we got to meet the other teams in our cohort and had the incredible opportunity to learn from some of the most experienced minds in the crypto space like Coinbase’s Brian Armstrong, a16z’s Chris Dixon and Sriram Krishnan, Stanford’s Dan Boneh and more.
The program kicked off with an inspiring talk by Chris Dixon, who discussed the evolution of the internet from Web 1 to Web 2 to Web 3. He emphasized the importance of owning the digital things we create online and building communities in the ownership layer of the internet. This resonated with us because we are building Bello for creators and want to empower users to own their data. Dixon's concept of creating an ownership layer of the internet has significant implications for the future of the web, and we are excited to explore this further.
Probably the analogy that stuck with us the most had to be Dixon’s perspective on building a town hall and eventually expanding into a city, which in part refers to you that’s consuming this content right now. From finding your first few users that align with your purpose, and spreading that gospel to grow the town into a city is a concept that really resonated with us.
Another speaker that stood out was Sriram Krishnan, an expert in product development. He stressed the importance of iterating quickly and building a feedback loop to respond to user insights. He coined this cycle as the OODA Loop where teams must Observe, Orient, Decode, and Act. Teams who fulfill the loop consistently as fast as possible win above all. This is something we are constantly working on at Bello, and Krishnan's advice was incredibly helpful. He also highlighted the significance of building a product that users love, which requires continuous improvement.
When Brian Armstrong (and his bodyguards) entered the room, you could feel an uptick in energy. Throughout the hour, he spoke about being cautious of attending conferences, growing your team while finding product market fit, and shared his advice with hiring your first few employees. TLDR, if the candidate is not a hell yes, then they’re a hard no.
The week commenced with an awesome social event with drinks and catering where the cohort came together, met one another in an intimate setting, and spoke about our goals for the accelerator.
The biggest takeaway for us was getting a glimpse into what the structure and agenda would look like for Bello for the next three months. It felt like being back in school, except this time, we can directly apply what we learn in the classroom to positively impact you guys.
We consider the first week of Crypto Startup School to be a success, so stay tuned for our next update, where we will share our insights and experiences from Week 2 of the accelerator program.
- a16z Selects Bello for Spring 2023's Crypto Startup School
At Bello, our goal is to make the complex world of blockchain data accessible and user-friendly for creators. We believe that with our no-code approach and intuitive dashboards, we can provide creators with the insights they need to grow their communities, reach their collectors, and ultimately, succeed in their crypto journey.
Our lofty ambitions to build something bigger than ourselves have given us the energy to navigate the current state of the bear market. But if we want to succeed in our mission of simplifying crypto data for creators, then we’ll need the best team, resources, and network to make it a reality.
That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve been accepted into the spring 2023 cohort of a16z's Crypto Startup School!
When we first started the general idea of Bello at ETH Amsterdam's Hackathon in April 2022, we never could have imagined that we would be where we are now. The energy and excitement we experienced during that 48-hour hackathon only make us more eager to see what 12 weeks at a16z's Crypto Startup School will bring.
About a16z’s Crypto Startup School
So, what exactly is a16z's Crypto Startup School? It's a full accelerator program that helps builders launch new web3 projects. Over the course of 12 weeks, participants receive funding, hands-on mentorship from successful founders, and the opportunity to work with domain experts on crucial topics such as protocol design, go-to-market strategy, and legal and regulatory issues.
Teams will also have the chance to build their product alongside fellow founders and the broader a16z network, providing a supportive community to help them succeed. The program will culminate in a Demo Day where teams present their product to the web3 community.
For us, being a part of Crypto Startup School is more than just an opportunity to receive key resources and mentorship. It's a chance to be surrounded by other like-minded builders, learn from the best, and strengthen relationships within the crypto community.
The right environment can be contagious, permeating deep into the foundation of a project's longevity. And as an early-stage startup, our roots are still growing, and sometimes a little vitality can help them to spur.
We’re hopeful the energy of the program will help us reach new heights and we're excited to see what the next three months have in store for us.
You can follow our journey by following our Lens where we’ll be sharing updates and progress throughout CSS.

Introducing Collector Heat Maps.
Maximize the engagement of your NFT drop by precisely locating your collectors' least active and most active purchasing periods.
Here's how it works. 🧶
When web3-native music artist @dlg_soundwaves approached us with the wish to know the optimal day and time to sell his music NFTs, we knew we had to help.
That's why we've created a new dashboard with 3 powerful features:
🔍 Dynamic Filtering
🔍 Active Days
🔍 Active Times
**🔍 Dynamic Filtering**
Sift through your community's onchain behavior to identify their least active and most active collection periods.
Analyzing your collectors' activity patterns can provide insights into their preferences and help inform your decision-making for future drops.
For example, if you notice that your community tends to be more active in the evenings, then consider releasing your NFTs in the evening to capitalize on this activity.
**🔍 Active Days**
Discover the perfect day to consider dropping your NFT collection.
Releasing your NFTs on a day when your community is available to collect them may increase their ability to participate in the drop and potentially result in a sold-out collection.
**🔍 Active Times**
Maximize your NFT campaign's performance by releasing them at the optimal time.
Just like specific times are best for pushing content on social media, we believe the same holds true for understanding your collectors' preferences on what time to drop your NFTs.
Study your community's on-chain behavior and activity patterns to pinpoint their least and most active collection periods and release your NFTs at the perfect moment!
Need help identifying that perfect moment?
Sign up for Bello Beta🍄 today!
