Newsmax shared these details:
Even as billionaire Elon Musk takes the reigns of social media giant Twitter, the company’s co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey is starting to test a new decentralized application that puts control in the hands of “multiple sites” instead of just one.
“The next step is to start testing the protocol,” Bluesky, the company originally funded by Twitter while Dorsey was there, said in a blog Oct. 18. “Distributed protocol development is a tricky process. It requires coordination from many parties once a network is deployed, so we’re going to start in private beta to iron out issues. As we beta test, we’ll continue to iterate on the protocol specs and share details about how it works. When it’s ready, we’ll move to the open beta.”
Yahoo Finance reported this week that the code for the new app “will allow user account data to be moved from platform to platform,” allowing users to use their account to log into multiple social media platforms using the new code.
