Decentralized Twitter 'Bluesky' Outlines Platform Code and Content Moderation Plans

Bluesky developers have pledged to publicly disclose the platform’s development process by publishing details about their work before it is finished.

Back in 2019, Jack Dorsey originally unveiled the Bluesky initiative.
Twitter is developing a decentralized social media project known as ‘Bluesky.’ The Bluesky team recently released its first batch of codes, while also reiterating its commitment to moderate the content allowed on its platform. Decentralized social media attempts to free the space from the grip of IT behemoths that now govern the platforms. Blockchain-based decentralized social networking applications will function on their own servers, limiting the possibility of targeted censorship.
Bluesky released their “Authenticated Data eXperiment” (ADX) protocol code in a blog post titled “Working in Public.”

The foundation of ADX, according to the researchers, is “self-authenticating” data, which transfers network authority to users.

Bluesky engineers stated that they will create two independent layers for’speech’ and’reach’ on their platform while outlining their content management intentions.

“The speech layer may be as agnostic as creating a webpage.” “What gets amplified across the network is determined by the reach layer,” the team noted on Twitter.

Bluesky’s developers have pledged to publicly disclose the platform’s development process by revealing details about their work before it is finished.

If public input prompts the team to pursue a different path, the developers would like to have some buffer time on hand.

Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey originally unveiled the Bluesky initiative in 2019.

While Dorsey remains a Bluesky board member, the initiative became self-sufficient in February after obtaining $13 million (approximately Rs. 100 crore) in investment from Twitter.

Now that Twitter has accepted Elon Musk’s $44 billion (approximately Rs. 3,37,465 crore) buyout bid, doubts about Bluesky’s future have begun to circulate on social media.

Bluesky engineers have clarified that the adjustments would have no impact on the firm.

For the time being, the release date of Bluesky is unknown.
