Nostr Unveils Mobile App Damus for Decentralized Social Networking

Nostr decentralized social network

Nostr, the decentralized social network, has finally launched its mobile app, Damus, on Feb. 1. The app is now available for download on both Google Play and the App Store.

The launch was greeted with enthusiasm by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, who called it a “milestone for open protocols.” Dorsey had previously donated Bitcoin to Nostr protocol and made reference to it in his Twitter bio.

Damus operates like Twitter and gives users complete control over their data. Unlike traditional social media apps, Damus doesn’t require a KYC process, and all messages are secured with end-to-end encryption.

The launch of Damus has been eagerly anticipated by the community, with the app facing multiple rejections from the App Store before finally gaining approval.

Nostr shared all the feedback it received from the App Store on its Twitter account.
