Blockchain Social-Media Strategy

Nostr

Nostr is a decentralized network based on cryptographic keypairs and that is not peer-to-peer; it is super simple and scalable and therefore has a chance of working. Read more about the protocol.

Launched in December, seems to be picking up some steam

Easiest place to get started is via the iris web client

Community is small at the moment but growing, and may be a valuable channel to get relevant news to Bitcoin maxis. (Cypherpunk, Rosen Bridge, etc).

  • There is a Reddit clone in development at nvote.co. However, it seems to be mostly inactive at the moment.
  • nostr.directory lets you find your Twitter followers on Nostr.
