Introducing: Gallery Merch

August 16th, 2022
Gallery has always been community-first in the way we build and grow. We believe the best way to create a lasting and sustainable platform is to embed our users in our processes as much as possible. From your favorite band’s concert tees to your go-to brand’s water bottles and tote bags, merch has always been a powerful way to express the things you’re passionate about.

Building an NFT Indexer

44/500
August 10th, 2022
One of the primary features of Gallery is enabling users to display their NFTs. To facilitate this, we need a quick way to retrieve all NFTs that belong to any given wallet address. Unfortunately, the Ethereum blockchain was not designed with a magical "get me every token that person owns" command, let alone other ways to slice the data: handling NFTs that are staked or escrowed, retrieving NFTs that were created by a specific address, retrieving NFTs an address once owned in the past, etc.

It's Time to Build (For the Public Good)

1/500
May 17th, 2021
Last year, Marc Andreessen famously (or infamously) wrote “It’s Time To Build”, in which he lamented the failure of our institutions to act decisively in the face of the pandemic, and more broadly to collectively imagine and build towards a better future. For many of us he argued, our complacency with the status quo traps us, and makes us reluctantly accept the world around us in place of meaningful action.

Techno-Optimism in the Age of DAOs

1/500
September 30th, 2021
For better or for worse, we live in a world run by institutions, and where power is sticky, and systemic change is hard. But technology over the last 20 years has produced perhaps the biggest shift in power seen in generations, with large social platforms and tools influencing everything from how we share space with one another at an individual level to how we collectively govern ourselves at the level of nation-states.

On Nowness and Collective Memory

March 15th, 2022
We all have an immediate, almost visceral understanding of the distinction between the past and the future, even from our most mundane experiences. We learn from the past, and we plan for the future. We celebrate, we commemorate, we mourn, and we hope. Yet, as Feynman notes no one would wait very long for a broken cup to come back together.

Future History of the Open Internet

7/500
November 17th, 2022
In 1996, John Perry Barlow wrote "A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace", a poetic proclamation of victory in the battle for a free and open web; an affirmation of what the internet could mean both socially and politically. It was an important piece of internet history that still resonates today. But just a decade later, platforms like Facebook began their rise to power and the vision for an open, semantic web was quickly forgotten in favor of something as benign as an easy to use "like" button within a social walled-garden.

Ready Layer Two

510/2222
October 11th, 2022
In December of 2021, our team at Quix launched the first NFT marketplace on the Optimism Layer 2 network. As both NFT creators and collectors on Ethereum mainnet ourselves, we were well acquainted with ETH’s pain points, and we were excited by the possibilities that Optimism presented. It had cheap gas fees, an untouched NFT ecosystem, and a team with the mission of scaling Ethereum’s values and rewarding projects for the impact they bring to the network. It checked every box for us, but for something that seemed to be such an obvious solution to so many of the issues on Layer 1, and that even had Vitalik’s stamp of approval, Optimism still felt like a secret gem of web3. So, we worked to deploy Quix as fast as we could, but when we came up for air and looked around, it turned out we may have been even earlier than we thought.

DIDs 201

20/500
October 4th, 2022
In our last post, we covered what DIDs are and more importantly why DIDs exist. Now it’s time to diver a little deeper into how they actually work. An identifier, as we know, is not magical by itself, but DIDs are not just identifiers they also have something called a DID Document. The DID Document is where the power of a DID truly resides.

DIDs 101 with Disco

September 20th, 2022
What do you think of when you hear the word “identity”? Do you think of usernames and passwords? Do you think of your name or your nickname? How about how you express yourself? Maybe it has something to do with your culture, or family, or a particular group you belong to. Ask 100 people and you will get 100 different answers to the question of “what is identity”? No matter how you answer this question, an identity requires at least one “identifier”, if not more. You can think of an identifier as an anchor or a shortcut to an identity. This could be a name, a user ID, your face, your voice, or many other things. Additionally, groups, objects, and even concepts have identifiers. Identifiers are how we let others know we are referring to one thing and not another.
