NFT Twitter is experiencing a renewed sense of positivity and community thanks to its migration to Bluesky, a decentralized social networking platform. The platform allows for greater creative freedom and authenticity, leading to a surge in interest and engagement from NFT enthusiasts. This shift towards a more open and collaborative environment has led to a surge in user growth and a resurgence of good vibes among NFT Twitter users.
Bluesky Emerges as a Promising Rival to Twitter
Bluesky, a social media platform built on a decentralized protocol that was incubated by Twitter before the Elon Musk era, has started to gain attention as the most promising rival to its progenitor. As the beta gradually lets in more users, Bluesky is attracting prominent NFT creators, artists, builders, and collectors. Notable NFT and Web3 projects, including digital artists and musicians, have recently established Bluesky accounts and are sharing their artwork and thoughts on the platform.
Bluesky was launched in 2019 by Twitter founder Jack Dorsey to create a decentralized social media protocol that Twitter could someday adopt. Following a few years of quiet development, the project emerged and spun out after Elon Musk became the owner and CEO of Twitter, raising $13 million in funding. Unlike Mastodon, which appeared to lose steam quickly amongst Twitter critics, Bluesky may find widespread adoption due to its recognizable interface and user experience.
Moreover, the platform’s federated model allows profile transfers between AT Protocol platforms, and users can control content-serving algorithms for increased trust in online spaces. Although for now, Bluesky is just one small, relatively centralized pocket of the AT Protocol, it may eventually fuel a network of decentralized platforms. With its potential to become a massive social media platform and decentralized protocol, Web3 enthusiasts may be pulling in some early adopters as it starts to take shape.
