QQ Mobile 843 000 000
Skype 300 000 000
As messaging become more popular customers are demanding not only a better user experience but are concerned about privacy, confidentiality, and security.
What would the advantages of a blockchain messenger be?
In the case of a blockchain messenger, no phone number would be required for registrations as messages are sent from public key to public key, using the blockchain protocols.
The nature of P2P communication without the participation of central servers means that there is no single point of failure possible. This also means that the system cannot be shut down by any third party.
Security via encryption
The use of asymmetric end-to-end encryption and P2P connections eliminate the possibility of intercepting user correspondence.
The absence of servers that store user correspondence excludes the disclosure of this information at the request of government agencies or access to any other parties such as hackers.
Introducing Embedded Messenger:
Embedded Messenger, world’s first encrypted blockchain messenger to launch in April.
Embedded Downloads announced earlier this month what they believe could be the blockchain killer application of 2018, Embedded Messenger.
According to the company, Embedded Messenger will use blockchain technology giving users the ability to send messages from public key to public key, creating a secure and private messaging environment.
The company highlighted the following features of the new application.
User Identification via Dynamic Key Creation:
Embedded Downloads pioneered the concept of Dynamic Key Creation, a process whereby the private encryption keys are never stored anywhere but created dynamically from the user and device input. One of the major features is that a message receiver can have certainty about the origin of the message because a key can only be created by that specific user and no one else. As the company states it: – You are the Key.
Enhanced Privacy and Security via Blockchain Encryption Technology;
Every message will be encrypted with a process whereby a public blockchain transaction on the EOT [Encryption of Things] blockchain is used to encrypt the message and then sent to the key of the receiver on the EOT blockchain. A very small amount of EOT will be used for every message.
Embedded Messenger will be available as an application in the Embedded Vault, a new product recently released by Embedded Downloads.
The company further called this new product a “game changer”.
“We believe that this product is going to be a “game changer” as it is the only product that uses inputs from the users own hardware, the user himself/herself and blockchain cryptography to create a secure environment for managing cryptofinance, communication and data management without the need to purchase any new hardware.”
More on the Embedded Vault:
The company recently announced that the Embedded Vault will be available as a free download for 30 Days. The Embedded Messenger will be a free upgrade, so any users who take the free download offer will also get the Embedded Messenger free.
Embedded Vault and Embedded Messenger are owned and developed by Embedded Downloads, with development offices in Limerick, Ireland, and New Delhi, India. Embedded Downloads specializes in secure hardware and software relating to the “Internet of Things”.
Can Embedded Messenger disrupt Facebook, WhatsApp & Skype?
The advantages of blockchain messaging as set out above could entice users and the fact that the messenger is currently available as a free download could drive early adoption especially among the crypto community who value their privacy and security.
The blockchain is starting to disrupt many traditional industries and messaging might be the next one.
