Nvote is a decentralized, vote-driven community similar to services like Reddit and HackerNews. Nvote is powered by nostr.

Nvote is a work-in-progress and needs contributors.

See Nvote in action at https://nvote.co.

Why should I want to use this instead of a centralized service like Reddit?

  • It’s lightweight. No ads, no javascript. No images except in posts. (inline images can be disabled in settings)
  • Full feature compatibility with privacy browsers like TorBrowser with javascript disabled.
  • Community-based spam prevention with no centralized moderators.
  • Publicly available activity data to help the community identify vote manipulation and astroturfing.
  • Anyone can host a nostr relay and mirror the data.
  • Relays and clients can be run locally or be made public for other people to share.
  • Ability to disable spam filters or even host your own client and implement custom filters.
  • You don’t have to rely on a single relay for content. You can configure the client to use other relays as data providers.
  • Backend data is owned by nobody and can be digested by alternative clients without the need for special API permissions.
