Official Reddcoin Blog



Dear fellow Reddheads:

A crucial piece of Social X is a decentralised system that allows storage and verification of public proofs of a person’s social network identities. For example, to send Reddcoin to a person on Youtube, we need to first verify that the Youtube user (represented by a username) is the actual owner of a private key that corresponds to a public key which is the receiving Reddcoin wallet address (e.g. address of her tip jar in the browser wallet).

It’s a very exciting technical project that I’m working on. And before it’s ready, I think it’s important that members of the community are at least familiar with the related concepts.

Keybase.io is the state-of-the-art at the moment and it’s in closed alpha. I have 5 invitations that I’d like to send to active community members. Once they set up their accounts properly, each of them should have 10 new invitations to send to others. It can then snowball from there.

You can find my Keybase profile here. For those of you who are interested in the invitation, please post your emails below.

EDIT: Keybase works on all platforms but it’s highly technical at the moment. So at this stage it makes more sense for you try it out if you are tech-savvy.
