Understanding Frames

Before diving into the top Frames, let's briefly understand what they are:

  • Nature of Frames: Frames are akin to sophisticated social media embeds, showcasing content as either static or animated images with interactive buttons.
  • Interactivity: The key lies in the buttons, which, when clicked, send a POST request with a signed payload. This feature enables a multitude of dynamic interactions.
