We passed 20,000 devs on @_buildspace today ✨
Proud we've been able to onboard thousands of devs into web3 -- from 11 y/o's in India to senior engineers at places like Riot Games, Netflix, and Stripe.
If you're one of us, drop an 🥑 below hehe.
Let's keep hacking my friends.
Ex. Today if I want to build an ecomm store on Solana + accept payments in SOL, I have to be a Rust god lol.
Instead, I rather someone deploy a secure, audited contract that lets anyone build a store on top of the contract via a Shopify-style dapp.
The contract could have functions on it like:
Whenever I use one of these functions, I'd pay the original creators a small fee. Ex. creating a store might cots $0.25, charging a customer might cost 1% of the total txn, etc.
I just think today it's early days and we're building a lot of individual, custom contracts.
But, overtime common use-cases will become clearer and the people who create standard protocols that the general population can easily interact with will win.
We have 300 people in our Discord who have the role: warrior, champion, legend, or hero. These are the most active members of our community who keep it alive.
We had this NFT made for them.
Within their hands, they hold great power.
BTW -- not sure of your rank? Run /rank in #-general on our server. Level 5 or higher means you get it!
Full leaderboard is below (not mobile friendly lol).
Note: people who attain "buildspace warrior" in the future will also get this NFT!
✨ Today, I'm excited to launch @useLuumen -- a budgeting and personal finance tool for crypto assets.
Massive shoutout to @_buildspace -- where I met my cofounder @gtlpanda + picked up the crypto skillz we needed to launch this thing.

The Solana dev ecosystem is exploding.
If you want to build stuff on Solana but Rust still seems too sp00ky, then check out the project below that kicks off this weekend.
2-months ago, we open-sourced all the content on @_buildspace.
Today, we passed 100 contributors and have closed 400+ pull-requests.
The "docs for web3" are changing literally everyday and these are the people putting in the work to keep them updated.
Ty to our contributors ❤️
BTW -- if you see yourself here be sure to reply w/ a 🛠 so we can give you a follow!!
And, a massive shoutout to @alec_dilanchian who goes through PRs every single morning -- MVP.
You can check out the repo here:
"Sign-In w/ Blockchain" would be a light way for web2 cos to adopt web3 right now.
Would just be a button that lives in their login flow alongside Sign-In w/ Apple, Google, etc.
🔗 choose their preferred chain (ex. ETH, SOL, etc)
👜 authorize their wallet
It being chain-agnostic is super important.
Also -- @davbarrick wrote a blog post on how to build this exact thing in such a way where you don't need to change your authentication API much.
