ADAMANT is a unique product — it’s the only Private Messenger operating entirely on a Blockchain. Apps: https://adamant.im/#adm-apps
The Blockchain can solve security flaws, typical for P2P and centralized messengers, and offer superior privacy and security.
In short, here are the highlights in terms of Privacy and Security:
- Targeting Secure & Private Communications
- Completely Open-Source
- Every message is a Blockchain transaction, encrypted and signed with: Ed25519 EdDSA, Curve25519, Salsa20, Poly1305
- Blockchain is a redundant and reliable storage for message history
- An inability for backdated or intercepted message change
- Reliable and Blockchain-powered (confirmed and signed) message delivery
- Message history is never stored on a machine and is directly loaded from the Blockchain
- Access to user’s message history from any device — similar to a centralized storage system
- Independent decentralised architecture — No authority
- Unstoppable and uncensored service: ADAMANT Messenger infrastructure (Blockchain nodes) belongs to its users and are run by users
- Developers have no possibility to deactivate, stop or pause the ADAMANT Messenger
- Certified authenticity for message sender and its recipient, MITM-attack protection (this type of attack will be detected, because the sender identificator will be changed)
- Messages are encrypted on the sender’s device and then decrypted on the recipients side. The client app never transfers a user’s Private Key or mnemonic passphrase (password) over the network. All work is done locally on the user’s device.
- No access to the user’s address book, location information or other user’s data — Pure messaging
- No user identifications — enjoy complete anonymity in use
- Create accounts in seconds — Simply change both UID and encryption keys
- No phone numbers to “restore access” to user’s account (intercepting SMS is a general way to get access to any user’s account)
- Unlike P2P-Messengers, it’s impossible to obtain a user’s IP-address. All communications go through Blockchain nodes, similar to a TOR network.
- ADAMANT accounts cannot be closed, blocked or limited by anyone, including the developers
- Developers do not control any actions on the part of users.
