BLIP: Encrypted Chat On Bitcoin Lightning – Bitcoin Magazine

Written by admin

A new Bitcoin-based encrypted chat platform has been announced at the Adopting Bitcoin conference, BLIP.

The new app, yet to be publicly released, leverages Hexum, a proprietary multilayer encryption method, also created by the team behind BLIP, that promises a more secure communication than popular end-to-end (E2E) encrypted apps.

“WhatsApp and Signal use one static private key. The Hexum encryption method gives you a private key per message or per interaction. So hacking that is very difficult,” Alejandro Muyshondt, El Salvador national security advisor and co-founder of BLIP founding company High Voltage, told Bitcoin Magazine.
