👋 Hey! I couldn't be more excited to announce I'm joining Showtime to help build the best crypto social network.

A short recap of my life until now

I’ve been coding for a while now, almost 10 years. I started with open-source and slowly shifted gears to become an indie maker. I managed to build an audience around my indie journey and my projects, meet amazing people and have lots of fun.

Server Authentication for web3

One of the big appeals of dApps is that the user owns their data. However, for this to be true, we need to authenticate the user with their web3 identity (their wallet).

Hello, Mirror!

Hey! I’m Miguel, and last week I dropped out of university to work on crypto. I’ll be using Mirror to share my crypto journey and talk about projects I work on and things I learn.

Up next, I’ll be publishing about how I built a Mirror client with Next.js (and how you can build apps on top of Mirror), some thoughts on the future of web3 apps and why I think Mirror is one of the most exciting projects on the space, and a look at how “Login with your wallet” flows are implemented.

If this sounds exciting, you can follow me on Twitter to keep up with me and get notified when those posts go live.

See you around!
