Hodlbod was so early to building in this space that he almost built a competing social media protocol, but once he found Nostr he decided it was sufficient for his needs. So instead he built one of the first big Nostr clients called Coracle. He’s excited about pushing the art forward on building for community and messaging use-cases and is “going all-in” on building on Nostr.
