Email and Telegram? Are we heretics? Are we traders to the decentralized wave? No, we are just being practical. Nostr and the use of cryptographic technology may be old school for some of us, but 99% of the world this is all new. We need to use traditional tools to make the Nostr transition easy.


Please add wss:// to your relays to make sure we get your message.  Expect slower support response via email.  Best support is available on Nostr messaging or Telegram.
