The Chat.Chat messaging platform
Lately there have been many attempts to create social media and messaging applications that integrate digital resources. An application that has captured a certain buzz in the cryptocurrency space is a protocol called ChatChat, which allows messaging and a connection to decentralized applications.
On Friday, Bitmain co-founder Jihan Wu used the Chat.Chat platform to interact with the Memo protocol. "This is me in the memo protocol, using Chat.Chat," he say his followers on Twitter, also leaving the ID of the BCH transaction inside his post.
A look at the user interface
News.Bitcoin.com has tested the Chat.Chat application this week to give readers an inside look at this new application. Chat.Chat works for desktops, iOS and other devices. Subscribing to the service requires an e-mail or phone number, after which the system sends a six-digit PIN to the registrant to verify the account.
Once the verification is complete, users can access the Chat.Chat dashboard, a dark-themed platform that works like the Slack program. The Chat.Chat desktop application can connect with the selected Gmail contacts, if the user wishes, and the iOS version asks users for permission to access the phone contacts.
Of course, linking with contacts is how the platform can be used for messaging and collaboration. But it also offers native tipping in bitcoin cash (BCH) and bitcoin core (BTC). Registrants are assigned two portfolios when they create accounts and can use their funds to suggest and publish decentralized apps such as Memos. The developers said that support ethereum (ETH) and eos (EOS) will arrive soon. Chat.Chat wallets allow you to enable passwordless payments and back up your private key.
Connecting to & # 39; Mini Apps & # 39; decentralized
The decentralized app section, or "app mini browser", can be accessed by clicking on a puzzle icon at the bottom of the screen on the right. Users can search for specific mini apps with the browser, but by default there are three apps highlighted. The platforms include a demo of the software development kit (SDK), the interactive Coin 360 cryptocurrency data site and the BCH-based social media platform onccain Memo.cash. To use Memo with the messaging program, users must log in to the Chat.Chat application.
End-to-end encryption and missing messages
The messaging inside the interface is quite intuitive and ChatChat allows uploads of images and attachments, as well as GIFs, communications with a microphone and even the ability to draw images with a simple drawing program. In addition to the ability to chat directly with specific contacts in 16 different languages, Chat.Chat users can also create custom groups. The chat is encrypted end-to-end, adding a level of privacy and users can set a timer for the disappearance of messages.
The user base of application at this time seems small and, like many other messaging and social media platforms launched this year, will need to gain some traction. Chat.Chat is like a Swiss army knife, since it is full of features to attract new users, such as the possibility of using more cryptocurrencies. In addition, with all of these days surveillance by governments and corporations around the world, another end-to-end encrypted messaging service will likely be welcomed by people who value freedom and privacy.
