In a significant development for the decentralized web, Mirror, the Ethereum-based blogging protocol, has integrated with Farcaster, a decentralized social media network. This strategic move is part of Mirror’s broader pivot towards social media, leveraging Farcaster’s robust ecosystem to enhance user experience and engagement.

Key Highlights of the Integration

Launch of the Kiosk App

Mirror has introduced a new application called Kiosk, built on the Farcaster network. Kiosk aims to merge the features of traditional blogging with the interactive elements of social media, enabling users to publish and share content in a decentralized environment.
