Mobile applications are an integral and substantial tool of our mobile communications. With rich and broad possibilities to communicate via text, audio and video messages, to engage in one-on-one chats and group discussions, to receive notifications and to upload and watch status updates and to share media, mobile instant messengers (MIMs) are among the most important and essential applications in our smartphones.
The use of mobile applications surpasses the use of most of the social network platforms, with over a billion WhatsApp users, more than 900 million Chinese WeChat users, over 1.3 billion Facebook Messenger users and 260 million active Viber users.
However, most of the MIMs (except WeChat) do not include financial features, such as a payment system, electronic wallet and saving accounts, and none of them supports financial operations with cryptocurrencies.
SappChat developing a platform that integrates both decentralized Blockchain-based mobile communications and financial operations in cryptocurrencies, including payments, fund transfers, crypto-exchange for conversions and yield farming (DeFi). Sappchat communication are fully anonymous as the platform does not require any personal or mobile details upon registration and provides end-to-end encryption of all messages and shared files. Additionally, SappChat’s platform will support multiple solutions for online shopping and e-commerce and will utilize AI technologies to support voice-only management of its communications and financial operations.
SappChat conducted this study to assess the functionality of other non-blockchain and blockchain based MIMs. The platforms were compared according to prominent features of mobile messaging, privacy and security and financial operations of the platforms. Information about the projects and the platforms was collected from multiple resources published by them, including whitepapers and brochures, websites, videos, forums, blogs, technical reviews, etc.
The benchmarking analysis was based on a comparative study of projects and platforms for mobile communications that are based on centralized and decentralized solutions.
The results of the comparison considering the multiple attributes of the platforms are follows:
