  • Code Rewrite: The entire codebase has been reworked and rewritten from scratch, ensuring robustness, scalability, and efficiency.

  • Open Actions / Smart Posts: With Open Actions, developers can build Smart Posts - interactions with any external smart contract in a Lens publication. Examples?
