New blockchain support, product improvements & demystifying dApp development together

Magic newsletter #5

Hi there,

The team and I are excited to share what we’ve most recently shipped!

Here’s a few highlights from the last month.

New features and enhancements:

Cosmos support 🪐

You asked, we listened: you can now build application-specific blockchains.

Cosmos is an ecosystem of blockchains that can scale and interoperate with each other. Use Magic to become interoperable with Cosmos blockchains that are rapidly gaining adoption. 

This doc covers the easy steps to set up the new Cosmos extension. 

Filter guides by tech

Now you can search and filter Magic guides with tags like “Hasura” and “Webflow” to find exactly what you want. Fast and simple. 

Get started with our two newest guides:

How to add Magic Link to a Nuxt.js Application

Build a Membership Blog with Magic and 11ty

Test Mode covers Web 3.0 🧪

Test mode for Magic JS SDK now supports standard Ethereum/Web 3.0 methods and the ability to associate specific key-pairs to test users and better testnet ergonomics.

Community meetups:

Demystifying dApp development

Thanks to the attendees coming from 28 different countries, this month’s Close-up Magic meetup was a success! 

A fun networking session, an insightful interview with Harry and Morgan, and an easy-to-follow dApp tutorial made it a very lively event, with lots of questions and positivity pouring in from the audience.

In case you missed it, here is a recording of the meetup!

For the next meetup, we’ll be interviewing G2, Founder of The Creative Platform, about him and his team’s journey to building a blockchain platform that revolutionizes how creators, fans, and brands work together with Decentralized Finance (DeFi).

We can’t wait to see you there. Register early to save your spot. 


And for our final update, I’ll tease that some big announcements are coming soon! We have a feeling you (hint: and your friends) will love the news.

As always, let us know how we can help with whatever you’re working on—tag us on Twitter or Instagram! Even cooler if it’s already built, #authbymagic.
