Panel discussion
Nostr for Censorship Resistance
In today’s interconnected digital world, social media platforms have emerged as competing public squares for global discourse. Yet, we have seen a worrying rise in censorship and deplatforming at many of the social media platforms in the past few years. Even more troubling has been the apparent insidious collusion between governments and these centralized platforms to suppress voices that offer a dissenting opinion to the preferred, prevailing narratives. Nostr, a decentralized and leaderless communications protocol, lacking a single point of control or failure, could become a vital tool to maintain free speech on the internet.
