By Inkarias - 2020-03-09
ARK Messenger, a fully autonomous and secure chat service built entirely on ARK technology is now officially complete. Built by Community member and Delegate Lemii, ARK Messenger runs on its own customized bridgechain. In addition, AM also makes use of ARK’s Generic Transaction Interface to handle the processing of chat messages. Lemii brought this idea and his full proposal to the ARK team to fund his development and once he was approved an ARK Grant, he immediately set out working on a Proof of Concept and a full outline. ARK Messenger development was completely funded using ARK Grants. Formally known as Tier 0, ARK Grants is a program that empowers developers to build applications, plug-ins, and/or proof of concepts for the ARK Ecosystem.
Ark messenger in details
The ARK Messenger is a fully autonomous and secure chat service built entirely on ARK technology. Proof-of-Concepts for communication services are becoming increasingly necessary in an age where users are paying closer attention to how their private data is being shared by centralized corporations. The benefits of having a chat service that runs on a blockchain allow users to stay in control of their private data.
AM users are not required to supply any sensitive personal information such as name, email address or phone number when creating their account. Upon creating a new account, investors have the ability to join a channel or create one. Joining a channel only requires to input the channel’s passphrase and submit. This passphrase can be then shared with other users to start messaging. All messages sent to the channel are encrypted and decrypted using the channel’s password as the seed. Sensitive data is never broadcasted, and all data is handled by the user’s local client.More information about this release can be read at https://arkmessenger.io/ and https://ark.io/
