I think I just had an out of body experience!!

This....is....huge!


Okay, okay, just read the FAQ and have to tone down my initial response a bit  ;D
I still think it is pretty cool though!

Very cool, the amount and speed of Nxt developments is becoming mind blowing.

More and more devs are participating :)

Can we integrate "account management" into this identity system?

For example, some one can own an alias (his identity) and manage his accounts/wallets at the same place.

Message sending will be allowed when alias has been registered in blockchain. Wait for few minutes please. Check Profile for the current status.
It's already registered, but I keep getting the msg. In my profile the status is green.

Hi guys!

s/Next/Nxt done. Thanks for "error occured. please contact developers bytes are:" reporting, I'm going to catch and fix this error.

Thanks for nxtty link, havent' seen it before.

Wow this looks really cool. Are you planning on switching from testnet to main net at some point? If so how will that work? Will users have to purchase some NXT in order to use an account? Also, any plans to sell shares on the AE?

We are thinking about further development. There are some limitations blockchain exposed(1000 chars limit though JLP said it could be lifted up, 1 min delay). And there are some great features possible(network-wide proof-of-delivery,  transactions chained with messages etc). So we will build some product on the top of Cryptamail. At some moment we will switch to main net, probably.

IPO on AE is possible, I like the idea.

I can login > hit the Cryptamail link in the top > go back to the login-area > hit back, and I'm still logged in.

Tells me, I should to *do something* when I'm using this service at the public library.

I'm looking forward to the further development.  :)

Looks great, gotta be better than BitMessage. Will there be a client i can install for this?  Not really descentralized if I need to use your website to utilize it?

The word "coin" is not in the name.

It should just be Nxt

Sorry for the newbie question here but it's difficult to understand one thing:

If e-mails are going to be stored in the blockchain and receivers will desencrypt them with their private password (how will they receive it?) can't it be hacked somehow? I mean, we need to use a very strong system that would take ages to bruteforce, so we need sth good. I'm sure there are some good algos (lots of them). But as a newbie can't see how I encrypt a message and he desencrypts it exactly. I studied computer science a few years ago and I don't remember all this stuff, could you explain it to me without going much into details, just the overview? Thanks :)

PS: Just curiosity, if for some reason you can't tell, I understand.

Encryption would be broken if curve25519 (the crypto used to send Nxt) is broken.

I doubt it's going to happen any time soon -- if at all. It  might be possible with quantum computers, but that tech  might turn out to be a pipe dream.

    Hi guys!

    For last Techcrunch Disrupt NY a small team(including me as main developer) made messenger built on top of Nxt messaging and aliases. The idea is to hide all tech complexity about blockchain, encryption etc. The service makes NXT account for you, send you some free coins for testing purposes(it works over testnet now), encodes sender alias & title into message, encrypts outgoing messages and shows you mail-like inbox.


    Some notes(more in FAQ):
    • As it works over testnet, things could be slow(block generation in testnet is not that stable)
    • You can
    • You can send message to alias(testnet alias) only
    • No "Sent messages" as we can't decrypt them
    • We store walletphrase & alias in an encrypted form. Password is needed to decrypt. And we store no password, only its hash. So we can't help you in case of password being forgotten. Good news: we don't know usernames(aliases)  and wallet phrases as well.
    • It could be opensourced later. Time will show.
    • Bugs are possible, as it's hackathon-quality product. Please report of any found.

    I myself a new NXT core developer
https://nxtforum.org/introduce-yourself/nxt-core-java-developer-checking-in!/ . Me and my team are also thinking about building blockchain-based apps(on top of NXT of course  :)). We appreciate any help / feature requests / suggestions / friendship with developers, investors, thinkers, enthusiasts and just good people. [/list]

Unfortunately it works bad now because testnet works bad :(

I'm thinking about opensourcing project, so anyone will have possibility to run own mail service against (main) blockchain & modify it according needs. Any suggestions for some features to be added before publishing?

Just to be clear.

Cryptmail is a web-client for the NXT Messaging function?
So its like SecureAE, but with messaging.
