Welcome πŸ‘‹

My name is Patrick Rivera and I'm a product engineer and writer. I currently work at Mirror, a crypto protocol building tools for web3 creators and communities. It's like if Kickstarter, Patreon, and Substack had a crypto baby. That's Mirror.

Over the past few months, we've shipped:

We've worked with artists, filmmakers, writers, open source projects, musicians, e-sports teams, grant giving DAOs, party DAOs, and more.

Previously, I was a growth engineer at Instacart and a lead growth engineer at a DeFi startup called Dharma, which was later acquired by OpenSea.

In my free time, I write about the intersection of crypto, creators, and communities.

Here are some of my most popular posts:

I'm also a member of a few DAOs like Fingerprints DAO, Friends With Benefits, Seed Club, Bright Moments, Squiggle DAO, Cabin DAO, and Society DAO.

These DAOs are online communities that launch web3 projects, collect rare NFTs, deploy custom smart contracts, host virtual events, and more.

I think DAOs like these are going to become some of the most influential online communities over the next decade as they amass large treasuries and serve as incubators for the best builders and creators in the space. I wrote about this here.
