Almost all messaging platforms rely on client to server communication, where a unique ID is given to a thread, and stored in a centralized database somewhere. But it’s always been volatile to censorship, network blocking, or any other form of controlled policing.
Unblock-able instant communication used to sound like a pipe dream, that is, until Blockchain technology came along. Imagine having a network that is unstoppable by any government, unbreakable to spy on, and just about impossible to breach.
Crypviser is a decentralized platform that does just this. The platform has no servers, no information on users. Neither email address nor mobile number is needed to use the service.
