With it being a relatively slow week in the Builderverse and the recent launch of permissionless signups, I thought I’d take the chance to highlight some awesome Farcaster tools since we’re always encouraging everyone to check it out! Below you’ll find a variety of projects, all utilizing the Farcaster protocol.
Some of these projects have built incredibly interesting apps like onchain live audio, location sharing, and even discussions directly on any webpage. The Farcaster ecosystem is really beginning to flourish, and we should see Builders creating even more exciting tools as time goes on which is really exciting.
Formerly known as Alphacaster, Aburra is a Farcaster client that has also introduced a Web3 live audio platform similar to Twitter Spaces. Built by Builder member Billzh, it has been a great experience so far. Keep an eye out for his next Farcaster Builder chat on Aburra! In the meantime, there is a BLVKHVND Q4 Pro Team Update scheduled for today at 1:30pm EDT!

Whenever someone casts a link to a book URL (currently supporting Amazon and Goodreads), Pincaster automatically creates a book collection and adds the cast to the list. If the book collection already exists, the cast is seamlessly included (Collections and casts are updated every 24 hours). It currently also has a Podcast collection, with more Collections to come. Built by @matallo.eth.
See who unfollowed who. Built by @fun.

Buidler is a social web annotation that enables you to comment and engage in discussions on any webpage. When users create posts on Farcaster client apps that include web links, Buidler serves as a bridge, displaying all discussions related to that URL. Built by @applefather.eth.
Builder Channel on Farcaster
The Builder Channel on Farcaster displays a feed of activity from members of Builder including casts and onchain activity such as auctions, proposals, and votes. You can also now see the DAO feed directly on the nouns.build website by clicking ‘Feed’ as shown in the screenshot below!
It’s a really great way to keep up to date with your fellow Builders! Very recently Farcaster has even gone permissionless! Anyone can now signup for the protocol without an invite. Head to your Farcaster client of choice (Warpcast, Aburra, Flink, Herocast, etc) and sign up today. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out for assistance!
