Update on Publishing Tools

August 22nd, 2022
Since our launch, new communities that have coalesced on Mirror have redefined what we can accomplish together. Mirror has been fortunate to support ambitious crowdfunding campaigns like The Ethereum Film. Krause House bought a professional basketball team and is working toward buying an NBA team. Blvkhhvnd launched the first decentralized e-sports team and just won a world championship.

Introducing Writing NFTs

May 25th, 2022
Before Ethereum was code, it was a piece of writing. A year prior to Ethereum’s launch in 2015, Vitalik Buterin published a whitepaper that laid out his vision for the project. Like Satoshi before him, Vitalik’s whitepaper served as a call to action that inspired a group of believers to help bring his ideas to fruition. This whitepaper has become an invaluable artifact — a foundational text with historical significance.

New Year, New Mirror: Reflecting on Mirror's First Year

January 19th, 2022
It’s January 1st, 2021, about one year ago. The price of Ethereum is hovering just below $1,000, the world has never heard of NFTs, and Mirror is barely two weeks old. As a web3 project, it goes without saying our bets were on a web3 future, and there was no better time than December 2020 to rally around that optimism. The web3 community (which primarily congregated on Twitter) was reaching a fever pitch, in which there brewed a contagious aura of camaraderie, mutual support and experimentation.

Say hello to your new (and very improved) Dashboard

December 6th, 2021
To say Mirror has been busy would be an understatement. A few weeks ago, all publishing, economic, and governance tools were opened to everyone. The Mirror DAO Pre-Season began and the team introduced new features like Token Race. The importance of a great home for all of these tools became very clear.
