Messaging App Session Launches Blockchain-based Private Calls

Session, an encrypted messaging service, has introduced a test for “private calls.” The Oxen Network’s blockchain features are used in the app. Oxen coin is a secure and private cryptocurrency.

Session’s willingness to go to such measures demonstrates its commitment to preserving user data, an issue that Facebook has been accused of in the past.

It’s worth noting that messaging apps like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp have been accused of gathering data from their users.

The Oxen-powered messaging platform said this week that its secure phone and video call function, which competes with WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger (FB Messenger), has entered public beta.

The OXEN coin is a secure and private digital asset. It’s a Proof-of-Stake network that may power auxiliary services like Session, Lokinet, and others, and service node managers are compensated with OXEN coins.

Users of the encrypted messaging app will be able to make audio and video chats without worrying about the intelligence community or AI technologies listening in on their discussions and obtaining crucial information.

Users can easily initiate chats with other users when both parties have accepted the request.

User phone numbers or personal details are not required for encrypted messaging. To minimise spam and safeguard user privacy, the programme will only allow users to call people on their contacts list, according to a press statement.

Session, which is based on a decentralised network, aims to dispel user scepticism of chat apps.

Session uses the Oxen Network, a community-operated channel of incentive nodes, to ensure the application’s and users’ safety. It serves as Session’s underlying infrastructure. Session will not work without Oxen and its service nodes.
