How it's made

The project has a React frontend that interacts with the Lens protocol API, it stores data using IPFS and stores videos using LivePeer. Ethers library was used to connect to the smart contract while GraphQl Apollo was used to fetch and post data to the lens Api, some routes needed to be signed by the user, for example, changing the profile picture, creating posts/shorts, creating comments, etc
