Writing is an invitation. It’s an attempt to bring people into new ways of thinking about art, tech, and society. There were a lot of invitations into niche worlds on Mirror in 2023 — 217,464 to be precise.
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.
Today, Mirror is excited to announce the launch of web3 subscriptions. This new feature allows readers to subscribe to any Mirror publication with their wallets and receive email notifications when new content is posted. For creators, web3 subscriptions open the door to building a wallet-based community that can be used across web3.
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.
