WordProof.io and Slant.li to bring decentralized privacy to the masses
Wordproof.io and Slant.li, the maker of the privEOS privacy technology, are pleased to announce a partnership that will help bring decentralized privacy to a mass audience.
WordProof.io brings the benefits of blockchain to the world of content in a user-friendly way. The privEOS protocol enables developers to build zero-knowledge applications that allow users to securely exchange information without anybody (not even the application itself) being able to listen in. Due to smart contract integration, there is no need to trust a centralized entity with that information.
“Being able to use the privEOS privacy protocol is a godsend for us since there is no longer the need to have a honeypot of sensitive user data on our servers. Everything is safely locked away on the blockchain with the user retaining full control over their own data. The privEOS technology is an important building block for several of the products we work on.” said Sebastiaan van der Lans, founder of WordProof.io.
“We are delighted to welcome Wordproof.io as one of the first apps developing on top of our privacy protocol.” commented Michael Breidenbrücker, CEO of Slant.li, “We can’t wait to see the final product released!”.
