We currently live in a world with overreaching governments and the covid-19 crisis has exemplified the greed and manipulation. Agents of the state have been invading our privacy for years now and they have found ways to monitor people online and eavesdrop on our private activities. However, encryption has been a problem for governments, as it gives an individual or organization the ability to change data in a way that is completely unreadable and only certain people with special knowledge or a key can read the information. Encryption is important because it can protect someone’s data not only from spying governments but also from any malicious person attempting to monitor people’s private affairs.
I feel a sense of urgency to get these types of tools out there — This leverages the Bitcoin Files Protocol and library developed by James Cramer, so big shout out to him.
Encrypted Message Sending and Receiving Examples
“So we can start to build an anonymous social network on Bitcoin Cash?” BCH fan Egon asked on the Reddit forum r/btc. BFP Encrypt’s specs also show examples of a “message send” and a “message receive,” which describe how someone can send text “from one address (sender WIF) to the P2PKH address associated with the recipient’s public key.” The last example shows how to download and decrypt the message that was sent to a recipient’s address.
