Messaging

From NEM Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Messages can be included in transactions in either encrypted, unencrypted, or hex messaging forms. No XEM needs to be sent in order for a message to be sent on the XEM network.

This can be used for secure communication to any XEM address, as well as blockchain based applications.

Possible Uses

Communication: Send messages securely (or not) to an address.

Identification: Send a message to someone to prove that you own a certain address.

Apostille: NEM Notary system that allows you to prove that a document existed in a certain form at a certain time.

Emercoin Copy: Emercoin is another well known and used coin that uses messaging as it's backend (though it's messaging system is closed-ish). Nearly anything that Emercoin does can be ported over to the NEM blockchain.
