DIW Development Update

During the past few months, we have been working on the transition from the vision declared in our whitepaper to the build of an application. It was a process that required thorough research in order to refine the idea and turn it into a framework for a working product.

Having a restrained budget means that there is not much room for mistakes so we aim to deliver a simple, usable product that meets the needs of both basic and more advanced users when it comes to digital security.

Phase 1 components

Our complete vision for the first stage of DIW will include an app that generates, stores and protects passwords as well as other personal information highly encrypted and supported by the extra security provided by the Distributed File Network and the Ethereum Blockchain.

It will comprise of a mobile application and a browser extension that can be used in conjunction with the mobile app through a secure connection. We are going to offer both a free and a Premium option of the app so that everyone can benefit from the security provided by DIW.

Each DIW account will be created by the generation of an Ethereum wallet. Users will be distinguished by their wallet number and they can keep their anonymity without the need to provide their email address or any other personal information.

Instead of having to come up with their own password, users will be asked to save the 24 random-word generated SEED, which will act as highly secure credentials. As a typical Ethereum wallet, DIW will also support deposit and withdrawal options for both ETH and DIW.
