Welcome to Nostr

Nostr is overwhelming. It may seem to be just spam and noise. Don’t give up. Nostr matters. Here’s a very short guide to help you survive day one and ‘get’ why some people think Nostr will be important.

  • Get Keys and an Address (NIP-05) like sideways@getalby.com (Alby includes Lightning wallet and key management)
  • Try some Clients: Browser-Astral, iOS-Damus, Android-?
  • Fill out your Profile
  • Use Follows to slow the flow. Use https://nostr.directory/ to migrate your Twitter follows to Nostr
  • Send DM to sideways@getalby.com on how I can make this guide better

That’s enough for now.
