Unstoppable Domains, focused on blockchain-based uncensorable websites, has launched a decentralized chat protocol, “Unstoppable Chat” or “Dchat”.

Unstoppable Chat aims to promote confidentiality through a peer-to-peer network and end-to-end encryption.

Dchat by Unstoppable Domains enables users to own, encrypt, and store their messages themselves on their own servers.

In order to allow users to fully control their messages, Dchat integrates with a user’s cryptocurrency wallet and P2P networks.

However, in order to sign in to the chat, users need to have an Ethereum wallet private key.

Brad Kam, co-founder of Unstoppable Domains said that the crypto wallet integration aims to provide maximum privacy to users.

Kam added:

“You must use an Ethereum wallet private key. That is what guarantees that no one can access the chat other than you. If you’re concerned about privacy, then create a wallet just to store your domain. You can remain pseudo anonymous.”

The chat will be available exclusively for browsers, with mobile apps to follow soon.

According to the firm, crypto wallet services like MyEtherWallet and imToken have already committed to supporting dChat and will be launching their own app using Dchat protocol soon.

The new product comes out of Mozilla’s “Fix the Internet” incubator, an incentive program that aims to bring together developers and technologists to develop the distributed web 3.0.

Since this protocol can be implemented in any wallet or service using your crypto address, you keep the same chats in all the applications using your crypto address. This is the opposite of today’s countless applications that all have separate Direct Message features where users are locked-in. You can now have a unified inbox, portable anywhere your crypto address is, bringing clarity to every message going through your crypto address.
