We have set out to build a mobile instant messenger that utilizes the Elastos Carrier network and the Elastos DID.
The combination of the Carrier and Elastos DID allows total anonymity for users as well as secure, encrypted communication. Although a few peer-to-peer messengers are available, the distribution of IDs still occurs through a centralized or semi-centralized manner. By using blockchain technology, to be more specific the Elastos DID sidechain, both the ID distribution and the communication via the peer-to-peer layer are fully decentralized and therefore secure and private with full anonymity.
Our goal is to build an easy to use, intuitive, modern mobile application with great design.
We believe that if we do our job well, most users will not even notice that in the background, it is all done with distributed technologies - they will just reap the benefits of security and privacy.
The Android version will be released by the end of january and will be available on app stores in february.
After collecting feedback on the Android version, we will release an iOS version as well, possibly in april.
Starting next week, we will be looking for beta testers for the Android version - please send me a private message here on the CR forum or comment below so I may contact you.
