It takes us more time than we planned, but finally introducing Chats in SSIO Wallet.
Chats are secure. All messages encrypted using Elliptic-curve Diffie–Hellman X25519 algorithm client-side, then pass to SSIO nodes where they are forged and stored in the blockchain. As block time is 10 seconds, this time is needed to receive a new message. A message comes to client app encrypted also, which guarantees secure communications.
Chats are available in Wallet app now, and will be available in Dating app also.
After you login in your Wallet, open Messages tab, and click Start new chat. As Profiles are not available right now, to start a new Chat, you should know a recipient SSIO Address (like SSAD777185D5C12A38C5CD, and since there is no Profiles Search in the App yet, ask your friend for his SSIO address to test chats). Put it in Start new chat form and click Start chat. Here you go!
Here are some hints:
- Chats support emoji
- Chats support markdown
- You can share links
- You can send images (including GIFs!), but only uploaded images are supported right now
- First, upload your image to any hosting, like imgur.com and get a link for this image, like https://i.imgur.com/tO8wOGv.jpg
- Next, paste this image link in your chat, and that’s it!
- To enlarge an image, click it, and it will be opened in a new browser tab
You should know any action in the blockchain costs tokens, including sending messages. Very small amount, but it costs. All this payments target to protect the system from mass attacks and support dPoS delegates.
So chats cost some small amount of SSIO tokens:
- 0.005 SSIO for message
For the limited time sexService.io project will compensate such expenses to make the platform easy to adopt and free. So can get your free SSIO tokens now.
Now we are preparing SSIO blockchain for profiles. After that, a new Dating Application with Profiles will be available. Lear more about SSIO application.
Estimate dates will be in the Roadmap (we’ll update it soon).
