BLIP: Encrypted Chat on Bitcoin Lightning – Bitcoin Magazine

A new Bitcoin-based encrypted chat platform has been announced at the Adopting Bitcoin conference, BLIP.

The new app, yet to be publicly released, leverages Hexum, a proprietary multilayer encryption method also created by the team behind BLIP, which promises more secure communication than popular end-to-end (E2E) encrypted apps.

“WhatsApp and Signal use a static private key. The Hexum encryption method provides one private key per message or per interaction. So hacking is very difficult,” Alejandro Muyshondt, El Salvador’s National Security Advisor and co-founder of BLIP’s parent company High Voltage, told Bitcoin Magazine.
