I am amazed to see how popular Nxtty already is on facebook. I saw it has almost 9000 likes and there are a damn lot of people commenting and "liking" on there, most of them (I assume) are not Nxters or Bitcoiners.
Facebook page of Nxtty: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Nxtty/645168825569486?fref=nf

What do you guys think, might Nxtty once its released be a concurrent to WhatsApp? How do you think will that affect the adoption of Nxt itself?

And for those of you that know more about the tech side, what would happen to the blockchain if million of people use Nxtty for there messages?


Would love to hear your thoughts and speculations :D

Interesting, 4 likes in mayby the last 20 min.

Any one actually know if its really instant messaging or if the messages will only appear with the next block?

I read somewhere that the messages aren't recorded in the blockchain but rather on an internal server runned by Nxtty owners. Or am I wrong?

Yes you are right,  messages are routed thru our server and not the blockchain.

The messages are encrypted locally in the app before being sent to the server and can only be decrypted by the receiver locally in his own app.

We can't decrypt the messages being routed thru the server, they are useless to us.

It all comes down to the user experience of the app.

The beta Android version was a little bit dissapointing for me. But once it works like I'm imagining it, I will be recommending Nxtty to all my friends.

There have been much improvement on Android already today...the app will be much better in a weeks time.

iOS version is much much more user friendly at the moment.

PUBLIC CHAT will be a completely different service than what Whatsapp currently offers.

Never miss international breaking news again or feel left out of global discussions that affect our world.

Nxtty Public Chat.

Add your voice.   :)

@ Faith: Why is that, what was it that you did not like? Or is it a secret as it was a closed beta test and things that might still change in the final version (GUI etz.)?

@ landomat: Thanks for dropping in, that sounds like a good solution with the servers. In the end, will the messages be saved on the blockchain? If so, will they be merged  or will each message be send individually?

No, we will never add any messages to the Blockchain.

Nxtty runs on NRS (Nxt Resource Software) just doesn't use Arbitrary Messages.

NRS is not just about AM.  :)

Hey thats not fair to be down on the first release of admitted unpolished beta software. I chatted with Lando via Nxtty yesterday. Lots of features to come.

I assume you are running on NRS nodes, can you give us a little more hints at how this works? Do you have a parallel chain? Any info for the curious?

PM if you want, and I will keep a secret. ;)

I know.

I believe in Nxtty from the start. I have sended some emoticons in the chat yesterday as well.

I just hope the final version will meet my expectations.

How does the app differ from Threema? How does NRS add functionality?
