  • DesoA new blockchain that has raised $200 million from Coinbase, Sequoia and Andreessen Horowitz.
  • On-chain messages are censorship-resistant and, like Bitcoin and Ethereum, can be used pseudonymously without providing personal information.
  • DeSo is the only blockchain today that supports seamless end-to-end encrypted on-chain messaging, and its extension to group chats is a first-of-its-kind breakthrough.
  • apps like diamondin a decentralized Twitter app, recently released, launching decentralized encrypted group chats on DeSo in the coming weeks. Diamond already supports end-to-end encrypted on-chain direct messages, which DeSo has been eyeing since early 2021.

Signal is the most popular private messaging app today, but users must enter personally identifiable information (a phone number) to use it. This allows anyone with access to Signal’s database to get complete information about who sent the message and when. Additionally, Signal is a centralized service, so it is blocked in major countries such as China.

Imagine a user having to give up their phone number in order to create a Bitcoin wallet. Why can’t users have the same level of privacy and censorship resistance as Bitcoin but apply to their communications?

today, Deso Blockchain brings the pseudonymity and censorship resistance of Bitcoin to messaging by initiating decentralized, end-to-end encrypted on-chain direct messages and group chats.
