protocol reviews and mentions

We have already have a clear stack. there's Gitcoin Passport for sybil resistance, git (and wrappers like Radicle) for version control, Lit PKPs & Gelato for account abstraction, Farcaster/Orbis/Lens for social architecture, OpenStreetMaps for geographic markets, OPStack, etc.
Nostr.how – A Complete Guide to Nostr

These services exist outside of the protocol and depend on a few centralized and trusted authorities.
Another solution that is arguably more resistant to capture and censorship would be to use a blockchain to manage user name aliases - like Farcaster is doing with fnames.
Mastodon.technology Is Shutting Down

That's sad to hear, but it makes total sense to shut down the server given its sensitive data, rather than hand it off to another person.
Mastodon/ActivityPub is a poor fit for a social network IMHO.
- Accounts should not be tied a single server and their continued maintenance.
- Private data and DMs should be end-to-end encrypted rather than entrusted with a single administrator.
- People don't want to self-host.
The core problem of a lot of social networks comes down to name aliasing, and who controls the name registry. In the case of nostr this is not a problem because everything is using public keys. Another protocol is Farcaster which plans to use a smart contract to maintain a name registry without requiring a single controller.
Sufficient Decentralization for Social Networks
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 Jul 2022
a simple mechanism is using a smart contract to map your key (0x123) to an identity (@alice). the contract can allow you to transfer that identity to a different key (important for key rotation) and also to set up a recovery key that is also authorized to transfer the key if the primary key is lost.
our recovery system for Farcaster has a few more bells and whistles, and you can read about it here: https://github.com/farcasterxyz/protocol#33-recovery3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 Jul 2022
author here - happy to answer questions folks have.
we've also been building a sufficiently decentralized protocol called Farcaster, and you can check it out here: https://github.com/farcasterxyz/protocol
we've also built the first clients for this protocol, which are still in beta. if you have an ENS name and are interested in trying them out, DM me on twitter https://twitter.com/varunsrin
