Token Holder Benefits

the design is offering a solution to the growing need for a fast, simple, and reliable means of digital communication. design not only delivers on this, but does so without using a centralized structure, which is prone to government backdoors, censorship, and targeted malicious events.

ySign CEO Ivan Vujic stated that over the last few years there has been increased concern about online communication privacy. The market is saturated with centralized apps and communications platforms, which are vulnerable to third-party intrusion and data theft. Ivan confirmed that ySign is introducing a new era to the way people connect with one another, on a global basis. The company’s plan is to start using blockchain technology, to ensure that it’s users enjoy the highest level of security and privacy during their communications. This will also allow them to connect with each other and share information freely, and, above all, safely.

Utmost Security

This allows ySign to get rid of needing to centrally process text messages and calls, allowing for a global method of free, secure, and anonymous communication. Instead of using centralized servers, ySign hosts data and protects user privacy by using the NEM blockchain for file storage, and decentralized file sharing to distribute messages.

Furthermore, the application itself doesn’t collect personal information, only requiring a username and a password in order to start messaging. So not only is user data encrypted and decentralized, no identifying data is collected, making it impossible to trace data back to individual users.

With the most popular messaging apps like WhatsApp and Messenger being massive targets for government pressure, those looking for discretion when talking among friends around the world don’t really have a solid choice to turn to ySign.
