Hey /r/Cryptocurrency I'm reaching out on behalf of the decentralized social protocol called Nostr.
If you don't know what Nostr is, that's fine. I'll give you the very quick and dirty. Nostr is decentralized, censorship resistant, and it allows you to control your social graph for the very first time. It's being built by Bitcoin developers and even has Bitcoin integrated at the protocol level. We have built a value for value economy with Zaps. What are Zaps? They're just Nostr aware Lightning payments on the surface, but they're so, so much more than that. They're a true form of feedback based on.thr hardest asset we have.
If you understand fuck you money, then you'll love fuck you communication.
Nostr cannot rug you. Bitcoin cannot rug you.
I see opportunity for Redditors to jump ship and come over to Nostr's Moderated Communities. Communities were added at the protocol level this past year after Reddit rugged all third party developers. Communities are supported in several popular clients or even dedicated clients. Communities need a lot more work to be fully enticing, but the groundwork is there and we just need more users posting content there.
If you appreciate and understand value for value, then you'll love Zaps. You can HODL them for as long as you'd like, you can Zap others, or use them to buy goods and services without having to go through a dozen hurdles like you had to with Moons. It's bitcoin, after all.
What Nostr clients support Communities?
Here's a few:
- Amethyst (Android)
- Satellite.earth (web)
- Zapddit.com (web)
- Nostr.kiwi (web)
- Habla.news (blogging platform on web)
Let me know if you have questions.
Edit: I removed Nostur. I thought it had support for communities. It doesn't yet. Visit https://nostrapps.com for many more Nostr clients.

Edit 3: Don't trust me, verify that we're actually sending Zaps. Visit https://zaplife.lol and watch a live stream of Zaps being sent.
Edit 4: Videos!
