The world runs on conversations and communication. Whether professional or personal, it is necessary to have an effective and reliable communication tool. An important aspect of communication is confidentiality.
The world needs an open-source, censorship-free, privacy-preserving communication protocol that enables freedom of communication.
That’s why BChat was created – the first of its kind – a private, decentralized and encrypted messenger built on top of the Beldex blockchain.
BChat will allow users to communicate through hundreds of decentralized nodes running on the Beldex blockchain. This dApp will open the door to a secure world of messaging and meet users’ need to converse in privacy. It will be cross-platform and available for download on Windows, Mac, iOS and Android devices.
Popular messaging app services these days are centralized which means all your personal information such as phone number, email id, username, geo-location etc. will be exposed and accessible to third parties and the entity providing these services. This will leave room for exploitation by the service provider. More often than not, your personal data is shared with advertisers, companies and political groups.
The team behind BChat states that “BChat is designed to be an open source, secure and private communication tool for everyone”.
Speaking about the need for privacy, Affandy B Hushni, President of Beldex, the decentralized project responsible for the development of BChat, says that “there is a growing need for decentralized applications to build privacy into their design. Being decentralized and uncensored is great. But we have to balance transparency and confidentiality. In some cases, confidentiality must be a priority, especially when it comes to services such as instant communication. That’s why we build BChat.“
Not only the data, but also the associated metadata such as timestamp, location, size, and other aspects of the message are hidden. The underlying cryptography of the Beldex chain ensures that your message always remains private. BChat allows users to register anonymously and receive a random alphanumeric code that they can share to connect with their friends.

A WEB3 chat app
Web3 is the mesh of interoperable chains, of the decentralized web that allows users to participate and take part in it. You can send private messages using BChat and hold a stake in the DApp adding to its security and decentralization. Beldex Masternodes provide storage, bandwidth and a secure relay channel for passing messages.
When sending a message through BChat, the text will be inconsistent as it passes through network nodes. The only person who can decrypt the message is the recipient.
If someone tries to engage in malicious activity, such as tracking user data or denying service through their masternode, the network will penalize the masternode. Even the warranty parts involved will be reduced. This ensures that masternode operators remain honest at all times.
The team also announced Beldex Research Labs for research and development of zk-SNARK-based sidechains for scaling, Beldex Virtual Machine for privacy-based smart contracts, Beldex Name System and the Beldex ecosystem. BChat will be one of many decentralized applications that will collectively make up Beldex’s privacy ecosystem.
Beldex is a blockchain project focused on developing a decentralized, privacy-focused Web3 ecosystem with BChat private messenger, BelNet dVPN, Beldex privacy browser and Beldex privacy protocol.
Beldex uses a new proof-of-stake consensus model and masternode architecture that helps it scale with adoption. Beldex will launch its flagship BChat, the first in a long line of decentralized applications, in the second quarter of 2022.
