I asked Guy to join me today to talk about Nostr & it’s future. The monetization of the app space, the concept of “one key pair and your tribe is everywhere, what comes next and a ton more. Don’t miss this one.
Nostr is not a social media site, it is a protocol sort of like email or http and it uses clients (similar to say outlook for email) for users to communicate information and exchange value with each other. As such it can’t be stopped, it can’t be censored and you never lose connection to your network of friends and followers.
It also has integrated payments via the Bitcoin lightning network allowing for exchange of value from levels as low as factions of a cent up to virtually no limits. This is also uncensorable and unstoppable. There is something more at play here though and it is why I invited Guy back to the show and that is what comes next.
Since last summer I have been forecasting that any app that can be monetized would be in the next five years and in doing so they will increase the power of their network effect. Today Nostr is accelerating that reality.
