Lens V2 Update: Smart Posts and More!

published on 16 November 2023

The future of decentralized social media just got a whole lot brighter with the launch of Lens V2. This major update represents a significant leap forward in both functionality and capacity compared to its predecessor, Lens V1. If you thought Lens was impressive before, you're in for a treat with V2.

Smart Posts: A Game Changer

One of the standout features of Lens V2 is the introduction of "Smart Posts." This revolutionary concept allows users to integrate "open actions" directly into their publications. But what exactly does that mean? Essentially, it enables remote interactions with smart contracts on various Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) chains. 

Imagine the possibilities. With Smart Posts, you can execute tasks like minting assets on platforms such as Zora or OpenSea directly from within a Lens post. This means you can seamlessly integrate blockchain functionality into your content, taking decentralized social media to a whole new level.

Open and Inclusive

Lens V2 takes a bold step towards openness and inclusivity by eliminating the need for whitelisting third-party modules. Instead, it embraces an open approach, giving users more control and flexibility over their interactions. One standout feature in this regard is the Profile Manager, which empowers users to grant permission to any address to act on their behalf. This means you can utilize cold wallets and ensure that your interactions on Lens V2 are tailored to your preferences and security needs.

The Power of Lens V2

Lens has already been recognized as a potent social protocol in the world of web3. With the launch of V2, it has truly stepped into the limelight as a game-changer in the decentralized social media landscape. The ability to connect any post to a smart contract and harness the power of blockchain technology within your content is a game-changer that sets Lens V2 apart.

Whether you're a content creator looking to monetize your work, a blockchain enthusiast eager to explore the possibilities of decentralized social media, or simply someone who appreciates innovation, Lens V2 has something to offer. It's a platform that's pushing the boundaries of what social media can be, and it's available now for you to explore.
