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 πŸ₯‘ below hehe. Let's keep hacking my friends.

Smart-contracts-as-a-service. 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: - createStore() - addInventory() - chargeCustomer() 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.

It's crazy to see it actually happening... People are going from hacking on the weekends with @_buildspace to literally finding their co-founders on our Discord + launching their own companies wtf.
✨ 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. πŸ‘‡ Join the beta luumen.finance

Don't think I've ever seen a learning platform become so succesful & popular in such a short amount of time. In just a few months @_buildspace has onboarded over 20,000 devs to web3 & seem to be loved by everyone. Great work @FarzaTV @emotes__ @alec_dilanchian @davbarrick + team
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. Build your own, custom NFT drop on Solana -- using only Javascript ✨. buildspace.so/solana-nfts

"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. Users would: πŸ”— choose their preferred chain (ex. ETH, SOL, etc) πŸ‘œ authorize their wallet βœ… done

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. davbarrick.medium.com/how-to…

If you want to build out "Continue w/ Wallet" as a full product -- go for it. I'll help you get your first 5 customers. I know a bunch of web2 cos doing ~$1M ARR rn who'd love this.
