    Hi all!

    It’s time to get X-CHAT started, and we need your help! The revolutionary decentralized messaging platform needs a strong team leading the charge. Let’s use this thread to brainstorm ideas, to agree on core functions, and to open the doors for those interested in collaborating.

    The X-CHAT module serves (3) primary purposes

    1) To provide efficient peer-to-peer messaging functions.
    2) To send and receive XBY / X-FUEL payments
    3) To maintain a completely decentralized process eliminating government regulation and security breaches. Messages will be transmitted through our STATIC network but stored with encryption on your personal computer or device.

    X-CHAT Development Timeline

    1) Identify key problem areas with current DApp messaging platforms.
    2) Develop list of solutions and features based on the power of XBY tech.
    3) Define core X-CHAT team (front end, back end, UI, etc.)
    4) Design and wireframe the first iteration of the DApp
    5) Create working prototype w/ XCITE & STATIC Network integration
    6) Test Alpha across a trusted network of volunteers
    7) Release Beta, capture metrics, and make changes for public deployment.
    8) Launch X-CHAT Dapp

    Questions To Start Brainstorming

    1) What development approach best fits our concept? Native, Web, Hybrid?
    2) How will we keep information encrypted on the user end? What kind of encryption do we provide during log in / DApp access?
    3) Since phone #s have to be used to connect and send messages / funds, how do we maintain encryption across the network?
    4) Should users have their XBY / XFUEL accounts accessible via X-CHAT?

    Interested in joining the X-CHAT dev team?

    Great opening for the X-CHAT module and lots to be thinking about here.

    With the developments of the XCITE Wallet it would be awesome to integrate X-CHAT into it or at least make it all very accessible from one simple central location. Definitely will be a bonus if people can see their accounts and make payments to friends from within the X-CHAT app.

    Yankee,

    Yea completely agree! it'd be great to eventually consolidate a few of our communication channels in an effort to bring more users to one platform. We still have a lot to figure out in terms of what that chat system will look like. With Slack, Telegram, whats app, texting, facebook chats and everything else in the market, we have to be smart about how we implement it.

    But I agree, you should be able to open your X-CHAT app on your phone and do everything you need to do.
