i had an idea for quite some time now and after doing some research, i want to share it with you. Grin is an interactive protocol so it was obvious for me to think about adding grin to a chat app, where instead of exchanging slatepack or address we can directly send grins like an attached file or a picture.
the idea is to have a profile chat app with your grin account pre-configured.
Creating an account , is simple, you can choose any nickname and password. Your Briar account AND messages are stored securely on your device, not in the cloud.
the most interesting part is how you add a contact, and there where the interactivity comes in. to add someone you need to send him your briar:// link and vice versa. Briar uses direct, encrypted connections between users via tor. All communication between devices is encrypted end-to-end.
what if we audit this project, fork the code and add grin to it ? be able to create an account, pre-configure it with a slatepack address , instead of the briar:// address we can use slatepack address to communicate over the app but also transact securely ?
