Decentralized social network Nostr launches mobile app ‘Damus’
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey said Damus' launch is a "milestone for open protocols."
Decentralized social network Nostr’s mobile application Damus launched on Google Play and AppStore on Feb. 1, as announced by the app’s Twitter account.
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey re-tweeted the app’s announcement post and said it was “a milestone for open protocols.” Dorsey had previously donated Bitcoin (BTC) to Nostr protocol and added his Nostr address to his Twitter bio.
The Damus app works similarly to Twitter and describes itself as a social network that can be controlled by users. The app claims that it gives users complete control of their data. It doesn’t require a KYC process and secures all messages with end-to-end encryption.
The community has long awaited the Damus app’s approval. The app announced multiple rejections by the AppStore and published all the feedback it received on its Twitter account.
