RE: Hive Hackathon: Hivemessage

Blockchain exists to provide censorship resistance and immutability. No one wants ephemeral or private communications posted to a blockchain. It makes no sense. Of course, you could encrypt them but once an encryption key gets into the wrong hands, all private communication will be readable by the whole world forever.


As opposed to that conversation on a centralized app that gets hacked?

We know that nothing is safe to the degree it is totally private. Implementing end-to-end encryption is about the best we can do.

Telegram is end-to-end encrypted.

I'm just saying that posting private communications to a blockchain serves no purpose.
