What is Nostr, how does it work, and what can you do with it?

What is Nostr, how does it work, and what can you do with it?

We discuss Nostr, its 3 main components, relais, clients and key pairs. We discuss why Nostr is different than Twitter, and potential applications. I am joined by Alex Poltorak founder of Hodling SA, provider of self-custodial security solutions for large holders of bitcoin and Massimo Musumeci and physicist and security specialist at Denali.
