About Mostro

Mostro, an avant-garde project, unfolds a revolutionary approach to facilitate Bitcoin transactions through the Lightning Network. The project addresses the growing demand for buying and selling Bitcoin without compromising personal data, introducing a groundbreaking solution for peer-to-peer exchanges.

Mostro manages communications on top of Nostr, creating a decentralized platform without a single point of failure. This design enhances resistance to censorship compared to other existing options.


If you are a developer and want to create your own Mostro's client, you can read the development documentation here:


How it works?

Mostro works as an escrow that allows the buyer and seller to exchange bitcoin p2p, reducing the risk for both parties, while only holding the Sats for the minimum time necessary. Mostro handles Bitcoin using a Lightning Network node. The node creates hold invoices for sellers and pays the buyers lightning regular invoices.

It works within the Nostr protocol so buyers and sellers will need Mostro's clients to buy/sell Bitcoin. Users will be able to rate Mostros and Mostros will compete to obtain more users to survive. Users should reject bad Mostros which will lose incentives to keep existing.
