The application of the decentralized social network project Bluesky, which originated on Twitter, debuted in app store, but for now it’s downloadable by invitation only. The interface is very similar to Twitter, starting with the publications chronological feed and the profile page.
Supported by co-founder and former Twitter boss Jack Dorsey, the Bluesky team is developing a social network based on the open standard Authenticated Transfer Protocol (AT Protocol). The developers characterize the project as “Federal Social Network”where multiple platforms are integrated into a central hub.
The AT protocol is based on four theses: the ability to transfer accounts, a single algorithm, performance and interoperability. The social network’s architecture allows account data to be shared between Bluesky fragments and provides control over the content each user sees.
The first closed beta version of Bluesky appeared in October last year, and with the release of the application on the Apple App Store, the developer is expanding the testing program; Anyone can also sign up for the waiting list project websiteto access the app later. Contrary to concerns over Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter, Bluesky spun off into a separate company last year with Jack Dorsey on the board. There is no information yet on the release date of the Bluesky application for Android.
