With Skrumble Network, we’re currently in the process of building a completely decentralized social media communication application. Incorporating the traditional messaging, audio and video calling for peer-to-peer and groups, it will also include the ability to send cryptocurrencies in-app, and more. It is Skrumble Network’s mission to innovate methods of communication and create opportunities for people to connect globally on the most secure networks possible, which is why we’ll also be building our very own blockchain that is uniquely optimized for communication connections and transactions and cannot be blocked by any firewall.
Originating from the idea that people should own their data and not a centralized ledger keeper like Facebook, WhatsApp, etc., just waiting for the next hack, we’re giving users back ownership of their data and the freedom to communicate without feeling concerned with intermediaries and unknown third parties having access to their private information.
With everything happening right now with the massive 87 million Facebook user data leak, Telegram being banned in multiple countries like Russia and Iran and also being hacked, a back door being found in WhatsApp’s encrypted group chats, and WeChat censoring conversations, there is no better time for us to drop the middle entities and centralized server hosts who are constantly manipulating our data.
Due to the rise of blockchain and the new decentralized paradigm, it was essential for us to explore the possibilities of using this technology to demonstrate how decentralized networks have the power to be the catalyst for data privacy and to help us truly democratize communication on a global scale.
Skrumble Network is going to be completely separate from our Skrumble offerings because it’s not just focused on enhancing the communication practices of businesses and enterprise clients. Skrumble Network is for everyone who feels an inherent need to connect. Our users desire a secure community where they can feel comfortable enough sharing their personal data and won’t need to worry about who else has access to it, because no one else will.
We’re actually going to launching a beta version 1 of our app on April 28th, 2018 and will be releasing our product timeline for features added, when we’re launching the decentralized version, the release of our blockchain, and when developers can access our SDKs (Software Development Kits) to add a communication layer to any application.
A few of our team members recently came back from a 6-week road show in North America and Asia attending multiple exclusive events, we have grown from 10,000 to over 47,000 members in Telegram group in just one week, and our list of amazing advisors continues to grow. We’ve attracted such renowned crypto and tech luminaries such as Anthony DiIorio, Co-Founder of Ethereum, Decentral and Jaxx, Jeff Pulver, VoIP Pioneer and Co-Founder of Vonage, Jinius Tu, CTO of Aion, Jiangang Wu, Fusion Foundation Development Expert, Dr. Redouane Elkamhi, PhD, Associate Professor of Finance at Rotman School of Business at the University of Toronto, and more to be announced.
