BlueSky Key Features:
- Authenticated Transfer Protocol
- Advanced decentralized technologies

The platform BlueSky will include AT (Authenticated Transfer) Protocol, which will enable users to control their data.
The Authenticated Transfer Protocol is an improved form of the previous ADX Protocol.
The ‘AT Protocol’ will be a new federated social network that will integrate ideas from the latest and most advanced decentralized technologies.
The new technologies will make the platform simple, and fast.
A key feature of BlueSky will be to allow users to move between several social media platforms through a high-quality browser in its app.
That will offer great convenience to users juggling between various platforms.
With this feature, users can control how much data is provided to social media platforms, making the online world, safer for them.
Developed by a Global Community
According to Dorsey, the platform is not owned by any organization and is contributed to, by as many intellectuals as possible.
He also added that any company trying to own the very fundamentals for social media or public data shall be a competitor to the new platform, BlueSky.
