As the world becomes increasingly digital, communication has become more critical than ever before. But with the rise of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, the need for secure and decentralized communication channels has become more pressing. To address this need, several cryptocurrency firms are working to build a secured Web3 communication layer for users and developers. In a recent press release, Mailchain, a blockchain-based email communication platform, has announced an integration with NEAR Protocol, a leading layer-1 protocol, to develop a secured communication layer for Web3 users. This partnership aims to provide a more secure, decentralized, and scalable email communication experience for the blockchain community.

NEAR Developers Can Add Web3 Communication Layer To dApps

The team behind the Mailchain blockchain-based email communication platform has announced a new integration with the NEAR Protocol. This integration provides a user-friendly and accessible Web3 communication layer and enables NEAR developers to integrate a Web3-native communication layer into their own dApps, widgets, and projects. This collaboration is a significant step towards achieving the interoperability mission of the NEAR blockchain operating system (BOS) and making Web3 more integrated and accessible for users.

The integration between the Mailchain SDK and NEAR Protocol marks a significant step forward for Web3 communication. NEAR developers can now easily add the Mailchain Web3 communication layer and its associated functionalities to their tech stack, enabling their users to send encrypted messages between blockchain wallet addresses, thereby making Web3 communication more secure and private.

With this integration, NEAR users can utilize their .near blockchain identities to send and receive Web3 emails. In addition, the Mailchain protocol offers cross-chain and naming service compatibility, enabling .near blockchain identities to communicate with other blockchain identities such as .eth, .lens, .xyz, .crypto, .hodl, and more.

NEAR Protocol boasts a unique scaling mechanism and offers a user-friendly interface, making it a popular choice for dApp development. Numerous dApps have already been built on the protocol, with new releases constantly emerging. Through this integration, Mailchain and NEAR Protocol are working to make Web3 communication more accessible and user-friendly, in turn paving the way for the mass adoption of Web3 technology.

Mailchain’s SDK To Provide Easy Integration

By utilizing Mailchain’s SDK, developers can seamlessly integrate the Mailchain protocol into their projects with just 17 lines of code. This streamlined integration process allows NEAR developers to easily incorporate a secure and private communication method into their projects.

Tim Boeckmann, CEO of Mailchain, said, “Mailchain’s secure messaging system is a perfect fit for NEAR developers who need to communicate with their users in a reliable and secure way.”

Mailchain’s default end-to-end encryption ensures that messages remain secure and private, making it an ideal choice for Web3 applications where privacy and security are paramount concerns. Mailchain has developed a unique identity key system that eliminates the requirement for private keys to send and receive messages from existing blockchain addresses or names. With Mailchain’s system, each registered account has its own user-generated identity key, as well as corresponding signing and encryption keys, ensuring secure and private communication.

The integration of Mailchain with the NEAR Protocol is an exciting development that promises to revolutionize email communication in the Web3 ecosystem. This partnership will provide a more secure, private, and decentralized email communication experience, making it easier for people to communicate on the blockchain. With this integration, Mailchain and NEAR Protocol have taken a step towards a more secure and decentralized future for email communication.
