Dmail-Blockchain-Email-Review

I came across an interesting blockchain project named Dmail. Dmail is an easy to use and a truly decentralized blockchain Email service that uses blockchain technology to encrypt, secure and revocable emails. Currently works only with Gmail through Google Chrome Browser.

Emails sent using Dmail will have a self destructive feature, where users can chose an expiration time of the sent emails. The timer begins as soon as the email is sent, and once the timer is up, the email gets deleted.

Dmail Technical Overview

Dmail uses Blockstack decentralized identities that can be linked to GitHub and social profiles, as well as cryptocurrency addresses, in a way that the user controls.

Dmail messages are encrypted. And, with Blockstack’s storage system, only the DID holder has access to any related data.

Dmail is installed through a Google chrome extension that will encrypt your message locally on your computer. The encrypted body of the message is sent to Dmail’s servers, while the decryption key and a link are sent to the intended recipients through Gmail. Neither Dmail nor Gmail gets both the encrypted message and the decryption key, so only the sender and intended recipients can read the message legibly.
Dmail’s FAQ.

How To Use Dmail in Five Easy Steps

1- In order to use Dmail, you will need to use Google Chrome Browser and to install Dmail extension. At the time of writing, there are around 19k active users using Dmail with tons positive reviews.

Egypt Will Issue a Digital Currency Next Year

Finally, after a long period of refusal, the Central Bank of Egypt revealed that it will complete the study to launch a digital currency next year, in cooperation with a number of international institutions.

According “Almal News“, Ehab Nasr, Central Bank’s VP assistant and head of payment systems and financial technology sector, the central bank will finalize the launch of a digital currency next year.

Nasr said that the Central Bank is cooperating in this regard with international institutions that he did not disclose, also did not disclose whether the new Egypt digital currency will be used only in internal banking transactions or will be available for public use and trade, where the study includes the need for the Egyptian market for digital currency and legislation necessary to launch .

A number of central banks around the world are seriously considering launching cryptocurrencies under their control, notably China’s central bank , Tunisia and Turkey.

The Central Bank of Egypt has repeatedly refused to deal with the use of digital currencies , including Bitcoin, pointing out that their prices are volatile due to speculation and lack of control by governments.

Recently, Arab central bankers recognized digital currencies during the meeting of the Board of Governors of Arab Banks and Monetary Institutions, and stressed the importance of addressing the risks arising from the use of digital currencies and the possible effects on monetary policies and the importance of appropriate preparation and capacity-building of central banks that wish to issue such Digital workers, development of digital identity standards, principles of customer identification, development of legislation and strengthening of international coordination in the face of risks.

Ayman Hussein, Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of the payment systems sector, said in October last year, that the Central bank began a study on the possibility of issuing an Egyptian digital currency, without disclosing further details, stressing that it comes in the context of reducing the circulation of banknotes And the transformation into a non-cash society.

Last year, The Central Bank issued a formal warning last year against dealing in all types of virtual cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin, because it is not issued by any central bank and is not supervised by any regulatory body in the world, and therefore lacks the official guarantee and government support enjoyed by the official currencies issued by central banks.
