fiatjaf, a core developer of the decentralized social protocol Nostr, issued a statement on social media warning users to avoid interacting with a platform called NostrAssets. According to fiatjaf, NostrAssets is a fully hosted service that borrows the Nostr name and is essentially an affinity scam. NostrAssets has no actual connection to the Nostr protocol itself, and only borrows the Nostr name. fiatjaf stressed that users should not deposit any sats with the platform.
In addition, fiatjaf also accused the platform of issuing a token called "nostr" which is 100% a scam and has nothing to do with the founders or team of Nostr.
The official Nostr Assets Protocol said that the allegations made by fiatjaf, the developer of the decentralized social protocol Nostr, regarding NostrAssets are unfounded. Nostr is a decentralized, open-source, and censorship-resistant relay network that anyone can build on, and the upcoming NOSTR asset has nothing to do with Nostr's core developers.
In addition, the Nostr Assets Protocol said that the criticism from fiatjaf, the core developer of Nostr, is a misunderstanding due to a lack of communication, and hopes to establish contact with the Nostr development team to improve collaboration and foster a better Nostr ecosystem.
