Relying in third party services for something as critical and personal like email is dangerous.
Companies can be hacked, bankruptcies can happen and goverment entities can force access into emails.
Phantasma brings an complete email system running in the blockchain. And the best part, it still works exactly like you expect email to work.
Phantasma runs on top of a crypto-wallet address, using the NEO blockchain.
You own the wallet private key, thus you own the mailbox content.
Everything is encrypted, and without the private key nobody can read it or steal it from you, not even the Phantasma developers.
Email in the current state is built on top of an legacy system with decades of existence. Phantasma breaks free from that system, and introduces a new protocol for content.
Here come's a new way to distribute messages, photos, invoices, movies and more!
Unlike competitors, Phantasma mailboxes are standard email addresses, thus can communicate with email systems outside the blockchain.
Besides that, Phantasma can do more than email, so other outside systems can be potentially be connected to a Phantasma mailbox.
Phantasma is using IPFS, a distributed file-system that we use as storage backend. The use of an out-of-chain distributed file system lets us keep the NEO blockchain free from bloat, and at the same time lets us keep the GAS cost low when interacting with smart contracts, letting us have a free and fast communication platform.
And of course, while distributed, all file content used with the Phantasma is encrypted to ensure that no one has access to it except yourself.
Here's the Phantasma demo.
It is running live on the NEO testnet, give it a try!
The development of the Phantasma platform will be divided into multiple phases.
This roadmap is intendend as an outline for how Phantasma intends to continue extending and expanding the platform to achieve the overall goal of decentralized communication.
Research and development of the Phantasma protocol and Blockchain technology.
Phantasma submitted to City of Zion dApps contest.
Winners of the City of Zion competition announced. Phantasma was one of the winners.
Development of Phantasma moves to another phase. NEP5 token integration and APIs.
Phantasma will be presented in NEO Devcon, at San Francisco.
The roadmap above is subject to change, according with user demand and market conditions.
