About Firechat

What is this? Why did you build this.

A proof of concept for an idea I had - using smart contracts as a database. I built it to... well, why do artists paint; why do writers write; why to singers sing.

Why would I use this?

Probably wont have to. Something like this could be used when all other msging services are banned.

Is this private?

Not yet. Im figuring out how to use Metamask for encryption/decryption. Even if the messages are encrypted, a lot of metadata is leaked when interacting with smart contracts; I suppsoe people could use this to send short msgs communicating their username on a more private platform.

Roadmap / will this be updated?

Not sure. If something shiny catches my eye.... prod me on twitter / telegram / Farcaster / github.
