Blockchain-Based Communication Platform Aims to Protect Your Personal Messages

The announcement of a Facebook Messenger Kids has parents worried that hackers may know where to find their children online, and access their private messaging content and lives. The controversial app aims to allow kids to ‘safely’ message and video chat with friends and loved ones. By allowing parents to control the Facebook account, they can monitor their children’s IM activity.

Underlying the parent discord is the sentiment that instant messenger users do not feel as if they have control over their data and privacy on chat apps. Many parents, themselves, face illicit activity on their Facebook accounts. The average user confronts all sorts of malware, from adware to phishing schemes, trying to take over instant messaging. Opening another virtual door to the household’s online life and handing children the keys is anathema to most parents.

The Internet of Things introduces another growing security risk as household appliances, entertainment systems, energy systems and controls link up digitally connected life. Business data from the office and factory is also interconnected with mobile devices. Cybersecurity is key to ensuring this interconnected world functions safely and efficiently. Encryption solutions, however, have failed to lock out the hackers, phishers and spammers—the so-called man-in-the-middle (MITM).

Ironclad instant messaging and communication system

A new proprietary encryption identification system called Crypviser prevents the MITM from accessing, stealing or manipulating data across personal and business communication systems. 1.2 bln active users use Facebook Messenger monthly, making it a key target of hacking schemes. Sell data is another major privacy concern. WhatsApp is under investigation in France for providing user data to Facebook without users’ permission. The popular IM, whose content is said to be openly accessible by US intelligence agencies has over a billion users.

Data is exchanged through public keys directly between the parties, allowing instant chat, audio, video, documents, photos and conferences to be safely exchanged without being intercepted by third parties.

The IM communications and payments app allows users to circumvent the centralized systems of messengers such as WhatsApp, Facebook and Viber. Instead, parties communicate directly over a public network on the Blockchain. The platform uses patent-pending Blockchain authentication and verification system to prevent MITM attacks. If a third-party does enter the system, an intelligent intrusion detection system ensures detection and protection. The decentralized system further protects data by storing it on the device rather than on a messenger service’s centralized server. Crypviser can securely run on multiple devices. Any attempt to hack, steal or tamper with data would require changes to all transactions stored on individual computers on the transparent Blockchain.

Crypviser provides a complete communications and data storage solution to allow users to operate within the secure CV ecosystem. CV offers a full communications suite for the private community user, secure business and large corporation. Standard communication suite services start with instant messaging, voice calls and video calls. These packages include the CV proprietary authentication system and encrypted local storage. The CVPay payments system and an electronic wallet are also included, allowing store and transfer CVCoin between Crypviser users.

IOS and Android apps are currently in beta testing mode. The Crypviser messenger will officially be in operation in early 2018. The free app allows users to verify the security codes for chats and calls individually, whereas a paid app fully automates the encryption process, providing the highest level of security. The app can be purchased and chats verified using the CVCoin available on cryptocurrency exchanges (currently at www.openledger.io).

Winklevoss’ Gemini Crypto Exchange Exploring The Lucrative UK Market

While it may not compete with Binance as the largest exchanges in the world, Gemini crypto exchange is certainly among the most renowned. Founded and led by Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, the exchange has recently had its stablecoin approved and now, it’s eyeing the UK crypto market. According to sources familiar with the matter, Gemini has already hired consultants to advise on the move to the U.K. With London being the European financial capital, the move will give Gemini a great boost in its global expansion especially in the wake of aggressive European expansion by some of the largest crypto exchanges. Targeting The U.K Market Gemini Trust Company has already hired consultants to advise on its entry into the U.K market, the Financial Times reported today, September 24. Citing two sources familiar with the process, FT reported that the exchange, which was founded in 2014, intends to set up shop in the U.K as it seeks to get its piece of the European market. According to the sources, Gemini is also close to filing an application with the U.K financial markets regulators. In the U.K, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has been the most involved in the crypto sector despite lacking the full legal mandate to properly police the industry. In moving to the U.K, Gemini will be competing with San Francisco-based giant Coinbase which has continued to stamp its authority in the European markets with several key moves. Just three weeks ago, Coinbase announced that it had launched support for four new British Pound-altcoin trading pairs. The new trading pairs are meant to consolidate its position as one of the most convenient platforms to purchase crypto with fiat in the U.K. Coinbase also announced last month that it would integrate GBP support into its platform, giving its clients the ability to make same-day deposits and withdrawals. Coinbase has also applied for and received an e-money license from the FCA for its fiat operations as well as partnered with Barclays bank to facilitate easier payment to U.K clients. The U.K crypto market has been largely loosely regulated, with the FCA being the only organization that has made steps to enforce order in the industry. However, this could all be changing soon with U.K MPs urging the government to stamp its authority in the sector to protect investors from fraud and to prevent money laundering. In a report submitted to parliament last week, the MPs urged the FCA to take the lead in regulating the industry “as a matter of urgency.” While most countries have sought to formulate new laws to encompass the new asset class, the MPs advised against it, stating that “bringing crypto-assets into the scope of existing regulation, rather than creating a new framework specifically for the assets, would be the quickest way of doing this.” The report further urged the government to crack down on crypto exchanges in line with new EU anti-money laundering regulations and impose greater KYC requirements. Gemini’s move into the U.K will give it a big boost and could push its daily traded volume significantly higher from the 61st position it currently holds in global rankings.
