What the  founder said:


My name is Justin Hunter and I'm the creator of Graphite Publishing. This app was a fun little side project that extended from my main work as the founder of Graphite, a decentralized and encrypted productivity suite.

I've told this story a million times, but it's always worth telling again , I did not grow up wanting to be a developer. I grew up wanting to be a writer. I started blogging when I was young, wrote short fiction, wrote novels. I received my MFA in creative writing. And about the time I was finishing my graduate program, I started worrying about where I was storing my writing (Google Docs at the time). So I set out to build a system where I could experience the same convenience as Google Docs, but know that I actually owned my data, not Google. Graphite Publishing is an extension of that same desire.

Sure, you can self-host a WordPress or Ghost blog, but in the end, you are still relying on the security of the hosting provider you choose. If there is a breach, you in-progress content (whether you ever intended to publish it or not) would be available to the world. With Graphite Publishing, your in-progress content is encrypted with encryption keys that you, and you alone, own. You can choose to use the free, default storage or you can connect your own storage hub for your content. In either case, if the hub you are using is ever breached, you in-progress content is still secure because it's encrypted and only you can decrypt it.

Ok, enough about that! Let's talk features. Here's what you get with Graphite Publishing:

 
Rich text editor for your blog posts (with full HTML editing if you want to get fancy with your designs)Focus mode allows you to enter a full-screen view with no toolbar and just your wordsNight mode gives you a dark background for those nights of peacefully writingAn HTML editor for designing your site and your blog posts for a truly custom experienceEncryption of everything until you publish it and say the world can see itCustom back-end branding including your account name or logo instead of a Graphite Publishing logoDecentralized identity anchored to the bitcoin blockchain (but don't worry, it's not complex and happens behind the scenes)True ownership of your content (like owning a house instead of renting)

This is still very much a beta product, but I hope you'll give it a shot and provide feedback. There are sure to be bugs and there is a lot on the roadmap including:
 
Team publicationsCustom domainsIntegrations (both inbound and out)

Blockvault - Decentralized password manager for teams on Blockstack

Othersblockstack app store posted the article • 0 comments • 401 views • 2019-06-23 23:53 • data from similar tags

 

 
 
 
What the  founder said:


You're now wondering what makes BLOCKVAULT different from all the other password managers?

The short answer is: it's enhanced by the power of Blockstack.


Blockstack is a suit of tools to build DApps that offers 3 major advantages: Authentication, Encryption and Distributed Storage. On the Blockstack ecosystem users keep a single universal identity (a combination of username and key) registered directly on Bitcoin’s blockchain. All data associated with that identity stays with it, this means applications or central authorities do not keep or control access to your data. On top of that, users decide where to store their data and which applications can read or write to your.




This makes BLOCKVAULT:
Secure: the app runs exclusively on your device (client-side). There are no central servers that can be hacked or breached.Decentralized: you control where your data is hosted. We do not store or replicate user data.Encrypted: your data is end-to-end encrypted with keys that only you hold.Shareable: be sure that only you and your teammates have access to your passwords and logins.


Give it a try and fire away any questions you may have in the comments.

Lannister- Encrypted personal wealth manager and financial planner

Othersblockstack app store posted the article • 0 comments • 296 views • 2019-06-23 23:09 • data from similar tags

 


 
 
 
Here are the founder said: what Lannister is and why we built it.
 
Inspiration

We started building Lannister because we needed a way to keep track of our holdings both in crypto and fiat (banks, deposits, savings, etc). It was also fundamental to have security and privacy in mind. No central server that could compromise our identity and financial data.
 
What it does

Lannister allows anyone to keep track of their holdings, follow its progress and easily analyze their distribution. It's simple to use for anyone who wants to take control of their financial life.
 
Unique features

Convenient: crypto and fiat, all-in-one place (supporting now 12 fiat and 2 crypto currencies with more to come)

Secure: runs locally on your phone, supports biometric access, optionally syncs with secure end-to-end encryption and decentralized storage via Blockstack infrastructure

Open: completely open-source (https://github.com/lannister-cap...)
 
Platforms

We're building Lannister for iOS and web, though only iOS is available at the moment. Both platforms will be able to sync information via Blockstack's infrastructure and keep information securely stored.

Android is also coming in the next months.

 
Future plans
 
Besides releasing a web version, here's a list of some of the features we're planning:

- Predictions
- Retrospective analysis
- Financial goals and recommendations

Take a look at our roadmap to know more about these: https://github.com/orgs/lanniste...
 
Syncing with Blockstack. Why

Blockstack offers a suite of tools that allows users to have a single universal identity (a combination of username and key) registered directly on Bitcoin’s blockchain. All data associated with that identity stays with it, meaning applications or central authorities do not keep or control access to their data. All files on Blockstack are stored encrypted with users identity key. Data is end-to-end encrypted with this key that only the user holds and therefore it is impossible to decrypt the information stored in each file.
 
Final considerations:


We believe that users should have each day more control over their identity and data. In traditional applications the information and authentication system is closed behind companies’ servers. Today, we're beginning to have a set of tools at our disposal that makes it possible for users to still access their data anywhere without compromising their privacy and security.

With Lannister we're providing a way for users to access and manage all their financial data, in a platform they can trust, that is open-source and secure.


Give it a try and fire away any questions you may have in the comments.

BlackHole File Transfer- faster than dropbox! Blockchain-based file transfer. Designed for everyday use.

Othersblockstack app store posted the article • 0 comments • 426 views • 2019-06-23 22:54 • data from similar tags

 

 
BlackHole 1.0 , a platform for fast and private file transfer that works over blockchain technology.

As we keep hearing about data breach news of big companies like Dropbox or WhatsApp, it is harder for us to keep trusting them with our file and personal data, and it made us think about finding a better way. We think the best way to keep data secure is not having them in the first place. That’s why we choose the server-less solution, in other word, blockchain.

The most challenging part for us was designing a blockchain app that doesn't look like a blockchain app! We wanted to make the transition from centralized to decentralized solution as smoothly as possible. That is where Blockstack comes in to help us with a secure and decentralized authentication service, working on Bitcoin blockchain.

BlackHole is a fully native app – no clunky Node.js –; as a result, it has so much less system usage (10MB of ram!) and great user experience. Being native also provides multiple layers of encryption with excellent performance. BlackHole lives in your menu bar and lets you send files with only one click.

Your shared file split into parts, encrypt, and then upload to a random hub of your choice. It gives you a private share link that plays the role of a key. No one can access the file without this link. Unlike traditional centralized services, BlackHole doesn't know about who, whom, what, and where the file shared! That’s the reason we name it BlackHole

Here is where BlackHole shines:

Secure as Crypto Money. Blockchain ,plus industry-standard AES CBC with 256 bits key ,plus PKCS7 padding pattern.

Data streaming. No need to waste time on uploading progress, links are generated and shareable instantly, and receiver can also see how uploading goes!

Designed for everyday use. Press Command/Ctrl + B on any file or folder, you now have a private share link in your clipboard. Hold the Shift key while doing this, and add your defined password as extra protection. If you are a mouse guy, you can drag-n-drop one or more files at the same time into the BlackHole tray icon as an alternative way.

Transfer compression. With the smart compressor along with multipart upload, it can save up to 90% of transfer time.

BlackHole is available for Windows and Mac, and more is on the way. Also, to hold our security claim, we released the source as open to anyone. Take a look at it in GitHub link.
 
official website:  https://blackhole.run
 
github source code: https://github.com/blackholeorganization 
 
Q&A:
What is BlackHole How much does it cost
 
 BlackHole is a file transfer application built on top of blockchain for the new internet. You can share any super security file with ease and be sure the data is yours forever. You can use BlackHole for free, with no storage or bandwidth limit, but for files bigger than 512 MB, there is an upcoming PLUS plan. You can signup for PLUS plan news here.
 
 How is BlackHole for everyday use
 
No need to organize files before sending, select any number of file or folders then upload them right from where they are with Cmd+B (or Ctrl+B if you are on Windows). Alternatively, you can drag-and-drop a file on the tray icon.
 Why does decentralization matter
 

Centralization often means providers are gaining access to your data without you knowing or approving. Decentralization makes that impossible. Read more about it here.
Where are my uploaded files

BlackHole encrypt the files and then send them to a random hub in your chooses provider. It came with a free unlimited provider, thanks to Blockstack, but you can change it to your own if you want. No matter what provider you are using, all the files will be encrypted anyway.
How do you protect my personal information
 
BlackHole operates a transparent, secure system based on IPFS and the blockchain. No matter what provider you are using, BlackHole will always encrypt everything using ECIES and AES256. It can only be decrypted by the specific receiving user's private key. And the code base is an open source project hosted on GitHub. You can check it out here.
 
How can I transfer a file with password protection
 
Press Cmd+Shift+B (or Ctrl+Shift+B if you are on Windows) on any selected file, then BlackHole will pop up and be waiting for your password. Alternatively, you can hold shift and drag-and-drop a file on the tray icon. view all

Forms.id is a simple, privacy-focused alternative to tools like Google Forms and Typeform.

Forms.id is a simple, privacy-focused alternative to tools like Google Forms and Typeform. Users no longer have to risk sharing their data with a centralized service and can ensure that the privacy of both the creator and the respondent is upheld.
 
Forms.id was built because owner was displeased with the business model of large software organizations : the sale of private, user data. Every piece of data that passes through Google's tools is a piece of data that can be sold or used to control and/or affect your attention. It is time for users to regain control of their data by using software that values them. Forms.id is powered by Blockstack, a technology stack that assists in just that. The tool allows users to create simple forms and surveys that can be shared with a simple link. All responses are encrypted and only the owner of the form can decrypt and view the data. Data can currently be exported to an Excel file.

Afari - Decentralized, censorship resistant social media like twitter

Hi guys:
 
 
I’m Avthar, one of the co-founders of Afari. We started working on Afari earlier this year while still in college. After turning down our job offers at tech giants and other blockchain startups we’re now working on it full time and are excited to share the launch of our public beta with the PH community! We built Afari to give people who value privacy, data ownership and censorship resistance, an alternative to centralized social media like Twitter and Facebook. You can think of Afari as a decentralized Twitter, but we plan to be more than that. In future, we plan to integrate a token network to help content creators of all audience sizes monetize their content more easily. This is our first time launching anything and the app is still in beta, so we’d love for you to use the app and offer feedback on the features present, UX, and anything you think would make Afari more appealing to you!
 
Our philosophy is that users should be in control of their data and should have choice over who can access it. The first step in that direction was innovation on the dimension of data ownership - users keep their data in their own storage systems thanks to Blockstack, a decentralized naming and storage system. This means that we can't share user data without user consent (like what happened in Cambridge Analytica).


This also means that users have much greater control over their non-public data (e.g profile information, ad profile etc), as users can get much more fine grained access control through encryption, since we don't own user encryption keys. Apart from that, we plan to build features that give users more control over which groups of people see content they post, who they follow etc.


On messaging - we plan to integrate encrypted messaging into the platform. Privacy means different things to different people -- would love to hear more about any privacy features related to social media that you'd specifically like to see!

Dmail-A decentralized email service that puts you in control of your own data.

official website:  https://www.dmail.online/ github source code address: https://github.com/dmailonline
 
What is Dmail?
 
A decentralized email service that puts you in control of your own data.




Dmail Features:


 1- An identity, not an account: Your emails belong to your identity, not an account that central authorities own and control.
2- Decentralized service: No one can shut the service down. Not even us!
3- Control your data storage: Your emails are encrypted and you decide where to store them.
4- Complete privacy: No one can see your emails except those you allow.
5- Security without a hassle: Easy to use with friendly and fun visual.
6- No more spam: Marketing companies don't have access to your data so they will not spam your inbox.



Why use an identity instead of an account?



When you create an old fashioned account you are giving away your data to the providers and they can do whatever they want with it. In Dmail, you create an identity which owns all the data and Dmail is just an app you use to perform tasks (send and receive emails) with your data.

Graphite Publishing is a decentralized blogging platform with full site design in addition to authoring tools.

What the  founder said:


My name is Justin Hunter and I'm the creator of Graphite Publishing. This app was a fun little side project that extended from my main work as the founder of Graphite, a decentralized and encrypted productivity suite.

I've told this story a million times, but it's always worth telling again , I did not grow up wanting to be a developer. I grew up wanting to be a writer. I started blogging when I was young, wrote short fiction, wrote novels. I received my MFA in creative writing. And about the time I was finishing my graduate program, I started worrying about where I was storing my writing (Google Docs at the time). So I set out to build a system where I could experience the same convenience as Google Docs, but know that I actually owned my data, not Google. Graphite Publishing is an extension of that same desire.

Sure, you can self-host a WordPress or Ghost blog, but in the end, you are still relying on the security of the hosting provider you choose. If there is a breach, you in-progress content (whether you ever intended to publish it or not) would be available to the world. With Graphite Publishing, your in-progress content is encrypted with encryption keys that you, and you alone, own. You can choose to use the free, default storage or you can connect your own storage hub for your content. In either case, if the hub you are using is ever breached, you in-progress content is still secure because it's encrypted and only you can decrypt it.

Ok, enough about that! Let's talk features. Here's what you get with Graphite Publishing:

 
Rich text editor for your blog posts (with full HTML editing if you want to get fancy with your designs)Focus mode allows you to enter a full-screen view with no toolbar and just your wordsNight mode gives you a dark background for those nights of peacefully writingAn HTML editor for designing your site and your blog posts for a truly custom experienceEncryption of everything until you publish it and say the world can see itCustom back-end branding including your account name or logo instead of a Graphite Publishing logoDecentralized identity anchored to the bitcoin blockchain (but don't worry, it's not complex and happens behind the scenes)True ownership of your content (like owning a house instead of renting)

This is still very much a beta product, but I hope you'll give it a shot and provide feedback. There are sure to be bugs and there is a lot on the roadmap including:
 
Team publicationsCustom domainsIntegrations (both inbound and out)

Blockvault - Decentralized password manager for teams on Blockstack

Othersblockstack app store posted the article • 0 comments • 401 views • 2019-06-23 23:53 • data from similar tags

 

 
 
 
What the  founder said:


You're now wondering what makes BLOCKVAULT different from all the other password managers?

The short answer is: it's enhanced by the power of Blockstack.


Blockstack is a suit of tools to build DApps that offers 3 major advantages: Authentication, Encryption and Distributed Storage. On the Blockstack ecosystem users keep a single universal identity (a combination of username and key) registered directly on Bitcoin’s blockchain. All data associated with that identity stays with it, this means applications or central authorities do not keep or control access to your data. On top of that, users decide where to store their data and which applications can read or write to your.




This makes BLOCKVAULT:
Secure: the app runs exclusively on your device (client-side). There are no central servers that can be hacked or breached.Decentralized: you control where your data is hosted. We do not store or replicate user data.Encrypted: your data is end-to-end encrypted with keys that only you hold.Shareable: be sure that only you and your teammates have access to your passwords and logins.


Give it a try and fire away any questions you may have in the comments.

Sigle is free to use and open source, it allows you to create beautiful and decentralized blogs. We built it with blockstack so it means that you own your data, we only rely on Gaia for the storage so you can decide to use the default blocktack storage or run your own storage (S3, Dropbox and more).

When you create a draft the story is private, it means that only you can decrypt it and other people can't see it. If you decide to publish it will be stored decrypted so you can share the link and everybody will be able to see it!

A lot of new features are coming in the next weeks :

- New themes
- Improved experience
- More settings
- SEO
- And more!


Since it's an open source project if you want to propose a new feature or report a bug feel free to open an issue on our github

Lannister- Encrypted personal wealth manager and financial planner

Othersblockstack app store posted the article • 0 comments • 296 views • 2019-06-23 23:09 • data from similar tags

 


 
 
 
Here are the founder said: what Lannister is and why we built it.
 
Inspiration

We started building Lannister because we needed a way to keep track of our holdings both in crypto and fiat (banks, deposits, savings, etc). It was also fundamental to have security and privacy in mind. No central server that could compromise our identity and financial data.
 
What it does

Lannister allows anyone to keep track of their holdings, follow its progress and easily analyze their distribution. It's simple to use for anyone who wants to take control of their financial life.
 
Unique features

Convenient: crypto and fiat, all-in-one place (supporting now 12 fiat and 2 crypto currencies with more to come)

Secure: runs locally on your phone, supports biometric access, optionally syncs with secure end-to-end encryption and decentralized storage via Blockstack infrastructure

Open: completely open-source (https://github.com/lannister-cap...)
 
Platforms

We're building Lannister for iOS and web, though only iOS is available at the moment. Both platforms will be able to sync information via Blockstack's infrastructure and keep information securely stored.

Android is also coming in the next months.

 
Future plans
 
Besides releasing a web version, here's a list of some of the features we're planning:

- Predictions
- Retrospective analysis
- Financial goals and recommendations

Take a look at our roadmap to know more about these: https://github.com/orgs/lanniste...
 
Syncing with Blockstack. Why

Blockstack offers a suite of tools that allows users to have a single universal identity (a combination of username and key) registered directly on Bitcoin’s blockchain. All data associated with that identity stays with it, meaning applications or central authorities do not keep or control access to their data. All files on Blockstack are stored encrypted with users identity key. Data is end-to-end encrypted with this key that only the user holds and therefore it is impossible to decrypt the information stored in each file.
 
Final considerations:


We believe that users should have each day more control over their identity and data. In traditional applications the information and authentication system is closed behind companies’ servers. Today, we're beginning to have a set of tools at our disposal that makes it possible for users to still access their data anywhere without compromising their privacy and security.

With Lannister we're providing a way for users to access and manage all their financial data, in a platform they can trust, that is open-source and secure.


Give it a try and fire away any questions you may have in the comments.

BlackHole File Transfer- faster than dropbox! Blockchain-based file transfer. Designed for everyday use.

Othersblockstack app store posted the article • 0 comments • 426 views • 2019-06-23 22:54 • data from similar tags

 

 
BlackHole 1.0 , a platform for fast and private file transfer that works over blockchain technology.

As we keep hearing about data breach news of big companies like Dropbox or WhatsApp, it is harder for us to keep trusting them with our file and personal data, and it made us think about finding a better way. We think the best way to keep data secure is not having them in the first place. That’s why we choose the server-less solution, in other word, blockchain.

The most challenging part for us was designing a blockchain app that doesn't look like a blockchain app! We wanted to make the transition from centralized to decentralized solution as smoothly as possible. That is where Blockstack comes in to help us with a secure and decentralized authentication service, working on Bitcoin blockchain.

BlackHole is a fully native app – no clunky Node.js –; as a result, it has so much less system usage (10MB of ram!) and great user experience. Being native also provides multiple layers of encryption with excellent performance. BlackHole lives in your menu bar and lets you send files with only one click.

Your shared file split into parts, encrypt, and then upload to a random hub of your choice. It gives you a private share link that plays the role of a key. No one can access the file without this link. Unlike traditional centralized services, BlackHole doesn't know about who, whom, what, and where the file shared! That’s the reason we name it BlackHole

Here is where BlackHole shines:

Secure as Crypto Money. Blockchain ,plus industry-standard AES CBC with 256 bits key ,plus PKCS7 padding pattern.

Data streaming. No need to waste time on uploading progress, links are generated and shareable instantly, and receiver can also see how uploading goes!

Designed for everyday use. Press Command/Ctrl + B on any file or folder, you now have a private share link in your clipboard. Hold the Shift key while doing this, and add your defined password as extra protection. If you are a mouse guy, you can drag-n-drop one or more files at the same time into the BlackHole tray icon as an alternative way.

Transfer compression. With the smart compressor along with multipart upload, it can save up to 90% of transfer time.

BlackHole is available for Windows and Mac, and more is on the way. Also, to hold our security claim, we released the source as open to anyone. Take a look at it in GitHub link.
 
official website:  https://blackhole.run
 
github source code: https://github.com/blackholeorganization 
 
Q&A:
What is BlackHole How much does it cost
 
 BlackHole is a file transfer application built on top of blockchain for the new internet. You can share any super security file with ease and be sure the data is yours forever. You can use BlackHole for free, with no storage or bandwidth limit, but for files bigger than 512 MB, there is an upcoming PLUS plan. You can signup for PLUS plan news here.
 
 How is BlackHole for everyday use
 
No need to organize files before sending, select any number of file or folders then upload them right from where they are with Cmd+B (or Ctrl+B if you are on Windows). Alternatively, you can drag-and-drop a file on the tray icon.
 Why does decentralization matter
 

Centralization often means providers are gaining access to your data without you knowing or approving. Decentralization makes that impossible. Read more about it here.
Where are my uploaded files

BlackHole encrypt the files and then send them to a random hub in your chooses provider. It came with a free unlimited provider, thanks to Blockstack, but you can change it to your own if you want. No matter what provider you are using, all the files will be encrypted anyway.
How do you protect my personal information
 
BlackHole operates a transparent, secure system based on IPFS and the blockchain. No matter what provider you are using, BlackHole will always encrypt everything using ECIES and AES256. It can only be decrypted by the specific receiving user's private key. And the code base is an open source project hosted on GitHub. You can check it out here.
 
How can I transfer a file with password protection
 
Press Cmd+Shift+B (or Ctrl+Shift+B if you are on Windows) on any selected file, then BlackHole will pop up and be waiting for your password. Alternatively, you can hold shift and drag-and-drop a file on the tray icon. view all

Forms.id is a simple, privacy-focused alternative to tools like Google Forms and Typeform.

Forms.id is a simple, privacy-focused alternative to tools like Google Forms and Typeform. Users no longer have to risk sharing their data with a centralized service and can ensure that the privacy of both the creator and the respondent is upheld.
 
Forms.id was built because owner was displeased with the business model of large software organizations : the sale of private, user data. Every piece of data that passes through Google's tools is a piece of data that can be sold or used to control and/or affect your attention. It is time for users to regain control of their data by using software that values them. Forms.id is powered by Blockstack, a technology stack that assists in just that. The tool allows users to create simple forms and surveys that can be shared with a simple link. All responses are encrypted and only the owner of the form can decrypt and view the data. Data can currently be exported to an Excel file.

Afari - Decentralized, censorship resistant social media like twitter

Hi guys:
 
 
I’m Avthar, one of the co-founders of Afari. We started working on Afari earlier this year while still in college. After turning down our job offers at tech giants and other blockchain startups we’re now working on it full time and are excited to share the launch of our public beta with the PH community! We built Afari to give people who value privacy, data ownership and censorship resistance, an alternative to centralized social media like Twitter and Facebook. You can think of Afari as a decentralized Twitter, but we plan to be more than that. In future, we plan to integrate a token network to help content creators of all audience sizes monetize their content more easily. This is our first time launching anything and the app is still in beta, so we’d love for you to use the app and offer feedback on the features present, UX, and anything you think would make Afari more appealing to you!
 
Our philosophy is that users should be in control of their data and should have choice over who can access it. The first step in that direction was innovation on the dimension of data ownership - users keep their data in their own storage systems thanks to Blockstack, a decentralized naming and storage system. This means that we can't share user data without user consent (like what happened in Cambridge Analytica).


This also means that users have much greater control over their non-public data (e.g profile information, ad profile etc), as users can get much more fine grained access control through encryption, since we don't own user encryption keys. Apart from that, we plan to build features that give users more control over which groups of people see content they post, who they follow etc.


On messaging - we plan to integrate encrypted messaging into the platform. Privacy means different things to different people -- would love to hear more about any privacy features related to social media that you'd specifically like to see!

Dmail-A decentralized email service that puts you in control of your own data.

What is Dmail?
 
A decentralized email service that puts you in control of your own data.




Dmail Features:


 1- An identity, not an account: Your emails belong to your identity, not an account that central authorities own and control.
2- Decentralized service: No one can shut the service down. Not even us!
3- Control your data storage: Your emails are encrypted and you decide where to store them.
4- Complete privacy: No one can see your emails except those you allow.
5- Security without a hassle: Easy to use with friendly and fun visual.
6- No more spam: Marketing companies don't have access to your data so they will not spam your inbox.



Why use an identity instead of an account?



When you create an old fashioned account you are giving away your data to the providers and they can do whatever they want with it. In Dmail, you create an identity which owns all the data and Dmail is just an app you use to perform tasks (send and receive emails) with your data.
