Blockchain Based Chat Messengers You Can Use in 2019

Postby skysnap » 13 May 2019, 12:24

Blockchain is breaking the trends last few years. And almost every industry is being invaded by the blockchain. Though most of it's use is in the financial sector but there are new industries that are making use of the blockchain now. Like say logistics etc. Even the messenger industry wants to take it's own cut of the blockchain. I am sure you are going to find some really good messenger apps that are using the blockchain for decentralized private exchanges.

Status

Ether is at the top when it comes to the decentralized applications. Status app allows you to start one to one or the group chat. It makes use of the whisper protocol that runs on the top of the Dapps with ether blockchain. I know due to some of such apps the blockchain is often cluttered. But the EOS based blockchain seems to be making use of the messengers such as that. And they seem to be lot faster too.

Beechat

South korean blockchain community seems to be pretty active lately. And there is one messenger from them that runs on the top of the blockchain. This messenger allows you to send the text, audio, video and other attachments. This messenger also makes use of the different currencies and let you send and get the currency in the messenger wallet itself. So it seems like a good start for anyone who want to regularly use messengers.

Dust

This messenger app was designed as an experiment for the news agencies to make people land on your site to read news and the blog. The company is the same one that helped mark cuban for the tech advice on the blockchain. Dust seems like one that was even used by mashable for the messenger news promotion account. It also allows you to reward other members and the token that the app offers seems like good for rewarding members based on behavior. For casual blockchain messenger use, it's a good to try out.

E-Chat

Echat also known as the ECHT, is the messenger app that works similar to the status. And they seem to be on the ether blockchain. It supports multiple amount of the currencies in the wallet. You can use it to send it to each other. It can hold the group chat of around 10 people. It can let you send the text, video, images and the attachment of specific type of file types like say PDF etc. So it's a good messenger that you can use if you want privacy and also want the blockchain based messaging option.

These are some of the released blockchain messengers that are working as of now. There are few others who make use of the discord API and also integrate with it. But the blockchain based messengers are only being used by the companies and the users who want something transnational in terms of the notifications. I hope the information here helps you to learn something new about the chat messengers based on blockchain.

Basically they make use of the blockchain for pay through messenger system. Just like how we have paypal for whatsapp type. So basically chat feature is just option part in blockchain. Though some apps mentioned above are focused on encrypted chat messages too which can be used in blockchain too.
