Communication & Social Media

The production-ready Tangle is ideally suited for the creation of decentralized communication services, such as applications for emails, live chats and messengers, due to its characteristics (e.g., scalability, free of charge, permissionless, encrypted, partition-tolerant). These new IOTA-based applications can break the dependence on today’s large centralized providers. The storage and analysis of personal data would no longer be possible, and the privacy of each individual user would once again be more secure.

The social implications of an immutable and permissionless protocol hold risks and opportunities at the same time. For example, there would no longer be moderators in chats who could delete texts (radical views, etc.), but on the other hand there would also be immense opportunities for those whose opinions would otherwise be restricted or suppressed.
