Unstoppable domains, a startup supported by Tim Draper that focuses on uncensored blockchain-based websites, has started a decentralized chat protocol.
The so-called “unstoppable chat” or simply “dChat” is intended to promote confidentiality through a peer network and end-to-end encryption. In contrast to conventional messaging apps like Facebook With dChat, users can own, encrypt and save their messages on their own servers.
Users need a private key for the Ethereum wallet to log in
So that users can fully control their messages, dChat can be integrated into the user’s cryptocurrency and P2P networks. To participate in the chat, users must have a private key for the Ethereum wallet.
Brad Kam, co-founder of Unstoppable Domains, told Cointelegraph that he wasThe integration of the cryptocurrency aims to offer users maximum privacy. Kam explained that users can create a separate wallet to improve privacy:
“You have to use a private Ethereum wallet key. This guarantees that no one but you can access the chat. If you have privacy concerns, create a wallet to store your domain. You can remain pseudo-anonymous. “
At the start The chat will be available exclusively for browsers and will launch mobile applications shortlyKam said.
According to the company, Cryptocurrency services like MyEtherWallet and imToken have already agreed to support dChat and they will soon start their own application using the dChat protocol.

The new product comes from the Mozilla incubator “Fix the Internet”, an incentive program designed to bring developers and technologists together to develop distributed Web 3.0.
The data is kept securely at the log level
With dChat, users can securely save their messages and data. even if a company prohibits the user from using an application created with the dChat protocol. According to the company, only the user can access and delete the chats.
Kam said the protocol itself was resistant to any intervention, saying that “there is no way for a company to stop using the protocol layer. That is the intention. This is the only way to set up a secure system. Applications can of course continue to prevent users from using their applications. The difference is that excluding users from an application does not lose access to their account and messages. You can use them in different applications. “
Since the new chat protocol promises significant data protection benefits, The product raises questions about counter-terrorism activities and other measures to prevent illegal content on the Internet.
