397: Nostr and Lightning Are the Real Web 3.0 with Myles Snider

Nostr has hit the scene with a lot of fanfare in recent months, but is it legit? How does the protocol enable censorship-resistant communications? What will future clients look like? How will the marketplace for relays develop? What role does bitcoin play in the potential success of Nostr? Myles Snider from Kollider joins Marty to tackle all of these questions and more. Beyond the Nostr discussion, Myles and Marty discuss the underappreciation of the Lightning Network, the emergence of inscriptions, and the product suite that the Kollider team is building out. A very high signal rip.
