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.

During an interview held by Bloomberg Markets with Yuval Rooz, he said: This entire industry should thank Facebook for their effort.

Enjin (ENJ) , the blockchain gaming platform is now live on Ethereum Mainnet. Enjin project is a robust, all-in-one blockchain game development platform that helps developers crowdfund, grow, monetize, and design the digital world of their dreams.

To celebrate the public launch of the new Enjin Platform, Enjin will be giving away limited-edition collectibles, ENJ based gaming assets and 50,000 Enjin coins.

Enjin has its own marketplace EnjinX, where users can buy/trade any ERC-1155 assets to used in Enjin based games. The market is currently charging 2.5% trading fees.

Last year, Enjin announced a partnership with Samsung that integrated ENJ technology with Samsung Galaxy S10 models. This announcement sent the price skyrocketing and created a major media buzz for Enjin Coin (ENJ).

All assets/items created using Enjin’s development platform are backed by a nominal amount of Enjin Coin (ENJ) to certify their authenticity. The Enjin Coin ICO was held in 2017, raising approximately $22 million worth of ETH.

TEDx - A Blockchain-based decentralised university

Professor John Domingue, Director of the OU’s Knowledge Media Institute, discusses developments in technology at TedX

I believe that with blockchain technology we can create a radically new type of university: a DAO University. A DAO is a Decentralised Autonomous Organisation which operates with no central control and no humans in the loop and are based on Smart Contracts: pieces of computer code on a blockchain which can represent and enact financial and legal contracts.

In a DAO University value and reputation associated with teaching and learning would be accounted for through a blockchain with no central control. Instead the whole learning community would agree how the educational elements, for example, learning materials, teaching resources and teaching delivery are shared and recompensed.

A DAO University is a next step evolution in higher education. A born digital community owned educational institution for the 21st Century. Open University Professor. Director of the Knowledge Media Institute and President of STI International. Published over 270 articles in the areas of semantics, the Web, distributed ledgers and eLearning. Instrumental role in the EU-funded project, QualiChain, which aims to revolutionise public education and its relationship to policy making and the labour market.
