E-Chat: Pre-ICO Token Sale for Decentralized Messenger & Multi-Currency Crypto Wallet
Latest posts by Dean (see all)
E-Chat is a new decentralized application which combines a secure, decentralized chat app with a cryptocurrency wallet capable of handling multiple different coins. An early ‘alpha’ version of the app is already available to download from Google Play or Apple App Store. But with ambitious plans to further develop its functionality, the team behind E-Chat are launching an ICO crowdsale to raise the necessary funds.
Early backers can invest in ‘ECHT’ tokens prior to this November ICO through the Pre-ICO sale which is already active, and receive an additional bonus for doing so.
Decentralized Messenger App
The E-Chat messenger app provides all of the familiar features that people already use in popular alternatives, including text messages, audio and video calls, group chats, stickers and bots.
In the background, it makes use of P2P connections, decentralized technologies such as blockchain and IPFS, and end-to-encryption. This ensures that users’ privacy is protected, their data is secured, and no government or other agency can take control of the app.
Additional security measures will include fingerprint input and facial recognition.
The team already have permits to use the app in China, and are targeting 100,000 installs by the end of 2017 alone.
In order to introduce mainstream users attracted by these features to cryptocurrency, registering an account will unlock a starting bonus in the form of the app’s internal crypto coin ECHT.
Users of the E-Chat app will be able to send both cryptocurrency and fiat payments to friends and family within the messenger itself. They will also be able to use the multi-currency wallet for internet shopping, or for offline shopping through the use of NFC or QR codes.
When using this wallet for cryptocurrency you retain control of your own private key, meaning that you do not need to trust your funds to anybody else’s care.
The combination of an internal wallet with a messenger app also opens up the possibility for novel features, such as paid channels for professional bloggers and other content producers and the option for users to attach real value to their likes with micropayment tips.
A pre-ICO crowdsale is currently active, during which investors can purchase E-Chats ECHT tokens with a 30% discount. This discount brings the price down to $0.7=1ECHT.
The Pre-ICO will last until November 2017.
