NIP-570: On-Chain Zaps and Anti-Zaps

Authors Melvin Carvalho optional draft


This proposal outlines a method for implementing simple on-chain zaps between Nostr users using Taproot addresses. The proposal includes specifications for both regular zaps and negative zaps (antizaps).


The ability to send zaps (micro-transactions) on-chain between Nostr users can enhance the functionality of the platform by enabling quick, easy, and decentralized financial interactions. Introducing antizaps allows for the reversal or adjustment of previous zaps.

Funding developers, rather than projects, changes what it means to fund open source.
