TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Skrumble Network (SKM), a communication-centric public blockchain that simplifies the way people contact and contract, today announced the global Beta release of its first dApp – Ally – on iOS and Android. Currently centralized in Beta, and soon to be decentralized in September 2018, Ally is the first of its kind, multi-purpose mobile media and communication application that enables users around the world to communicate freely, anonymously, and securely. Unlike Facebook, Telegram and WeChat, the new dApp is powered by the Skrumble Network public chain, and therefore uses community-owned storage with no centralized servers. This ensures that no external entities have the power to censor, block or manipulate any data.
“We’re excited to mark this milestone in our project, where the shared vision of uniting the global community is becoming a reality,” says Eric Lifson, Co-Founder of Skrumble Network. “There is a pressing demand for a communication platform that places user privacy, data security, and freedom all first, and we are combatting this issue by building Ally to create an environment where people can feel safe.”
Some key features of Ally (Beta) are:
- Disappearing messages with set timers
- Private, public and broadcast chat functionalities
- Video chat with up to 50 members
- Live media streaming
- In-app wallet
- In-chat crypto transfers
Over 70,000 community members have already pre-signed up for the beta launch of Ally. The decentralized version of Ally in Beta is expected to be live September 2018 on the TestNet. The MainNet release is expected to be early 2019. To learn more about Ally, please visit: getally.io.
