Snowden on Nostr says Lightning feels like yet another planet

    my issue with nostr is that there’s nothing about the protocol that ensures decentralization as networks scale up.

    bitcoin has made many sacrifices and was designed specifically from the beginning to be decentralized, and it takes a lot of work.

    nostr should be described as an open protocol, not a decentralized one. much like http, over time large centralized relays are likely to dominate.

    nostr claims to achieve decentralization without p2p, which is arguably impossible.

    Nostr is the truth. Allows anyone to code their own social media and payments platform. Astral feels like a better Twitter + Venmo wrapped into one.

    Wasn’t he insulting Bitcoin not long ago? Concerned about privacy and not interested in “Lightning nonsense”?

    Thought I read that somewhere.

    If it is transaction free, how will mining ever be sustainable?

    Edward Snowden is a fucking hero, I don’t care what anybody says

    He saw shit for what it was, called it out and now he is a fugitive

    The West has stopped being a role model a long time ago and should stop lecturing the world about democracy and civil liberties. Instead they should start focusing on themselves.

    I wish all of us had just half as much cojones as Snowden has

    I’ve tried Damus and Iris on iOS, and both clients are buggy as hell. The UI/UX is utterly terrible, and has been for over a year already, despite constant new releases.

    I don’t see how this can ever scale. If you follow just five very active users, like for example Jack Dorsey, the home timeline turns into a noisy mess.

    Very often an update rolls out and all your private messages and notifications just disappear forever.

    Hmmm…. Guy is larping a bit here. Maybe he was dealing with Bitcoin from 2013, but he was certainly shitting on it in favour of PrIvAcY cOiNs until recently.

    Nostr is like IRC also called Mirc on the 90s.

    Its not usable at least for now.

    It still needs a LOT of development.

    If anyone has questions or wants to watch a tutorial on how to make a Nostr account, check out the video linked below. After you watch the first 25 to 30 minutes you will be ready to make a Nostr account. Super easy to do, took me 5 minutes to setup.

    What’s a “Lightning Address”?

    I vaguely remember hearing about the possibility of reusable invoices, but where can I read more?

    Can someone explain to me why we should use lightning? I feel as if transactions are fast and cheap enough currently.

    I am worried lightning can suppress the price of bitcoin by creating more than 21 mill BTC if they are being held “off-chain”. It just seems like a solution looking for a problem.
