Nostr stands for Notes and Other Stuff Transmitted by Relays.Nostr has grown from 50 active users a year ago to 300,000 today.
Nostr is not an app or service that you sign up for, it's a permissionless open standard like TCP/IP and HTTP. Anyone can build on it without asking for permission from anyone. There is no one in control.
Nostr is designed for simplicity and enables people to participate in a decentralized social network. It can not only replace twitter/facebook/instagram/spotify/etc but can also replace companies that provide infomation exchange services.
Hong Kong is currently pursuing Web3.
Nostr + Bitcoin + Lightning is an organic form of "Web3" that has a chance of being around in 5-10 years.
Nostr + Bitcoin + Lightning are networks and technologies that are discovered in response to real problems experienced by real people.
These networks are rapidly growing without a development team, without a marketing team, without leadership, and without any form of capital raise.
