We are happy with the design. It needs the Connect Wallet & CLAIM functionality that would be possible through the custom code provided by Manifold. Hosted by Ghost Pro

LTL Edito

The majority of people tend to run Ghost on our fully managed PaaS called Ghost(Pro). This removes the headaches of server management, security monitoring, and software updates completely — and allows you to focus on the other aspects of your business where time is better spent. Some larger organizations such as Apple and Elon Musk's OpenAI team choose to run Ghost on their own private networks where they're able to make some deep core modifications to the software in order to suit specific use cases.

When you're building a publication you should always use social networks like Twitter, Facebook and Medium to promote your content & find new readers. But once you've got those readers: What next? Social networks give you zero control over your audience, and if they decide to change algorithms or disappear, then so does your readership.

Ghost is a powerful app for new-media creators to publish, share, and grow a business around their content. It comes with modern tools to build a website, publish content, send newsletters & offer paid subscriptions to members. Social networks are like running ads or guest spot in somebody else's magazine. By contrast, using Ghost is like creating your own magazine and owning the full, custom experience from cover to cover.

Bankless DAO

Our first headless Ghost project was created for BanklessDAO. It uses the open-source version of Ghost and was running on Github and Vercel in addition to the hosted Ghost Pro service. This allowed us to show custom code (the Web3 wallet) and use the main Ghost admin login to post articles. Users were able to login to the ghost domain and add custom blog-style content. The goal was to mimic the look and feel of our own Ghost-powered editorial site (we are not a huge fan of the proposed redesign tbh)

When new articles were added, it triggered a deployment and the final result is all the editorial content along with the MM login. The vision has been to replace some components with a Web3 stack. Fleek, Radicle, Akash, and Gnosis Safe come to mind.

The MVP was a destination for guild-related content. As a new bDAO member, and even as a full-time contributor tbh, it's beyond overwhelming to understand what each guild is working on, so we took an editorial approach where each guild would write a post about the current milestones and goals, and so the UX was clean and simple: you filter through for example the Dev Guild tag and you get to catch up through weekly updates, and you can easily spot opportunities to start contributing yourself. We felt we could treat it as a springboard linking out to all the diverse projects. This meant focusing on the core information of the DAO that was subgroup agnostic and providing at least one landing page for all subgroups that could link out to their individual websites or wiki pages.
