- This release integrates Nostr. Nostr is a simple and open protocol that aims to create censorship-resistant social networks and works with cryptographic keys.
- Nostr and Bitcoin are a natural fit - Alby’s Bitcoin Lightning App facilitates versatile in-browser value transfers, along with secure identity authentication, with just a few clicks.
- Alby’s browser extension also allows users to generate keys to use with Nostr easily. The Alby extension ensures that these keys are generated in a simple, instant manner, and users are freed from having to remember their keys, as they’re stored in the extension itself.
No two users can claim the same addresses on the platform ensuring that there is no cross-attestation. Additionally, if a user removes an address or wallet, that address cannot be re-attested for at least 60-days.
