A privacy-focused Email provider using Blockchain technology. A decentralized service that puts you in control of your own data. It uses Blockstack decentralized identities (DIDs), which can be linked to GitHub and social profiles, as well as cryptocurrency addresses, in a way that the user controls.
The service is currently listed in Blockstack’s App Mining program, which distributes bitcoin grants to projects garnering the most usage and developer contributions. More Info »
There’s clearly a demand for secure email services, as the current market leader, ProtonMail, reportedly has 10 million users.
Dmail messages are encrypted. And, with Blockstack’s storage system, only the DID holder herself has access to any related data. Plus, recipients must indicate their consent in order to receive a message from another ID holder. Recipients can still deactivate the ability for that sender to send new messages at any time.
