Et Mitte: A Messaging DApp To Send Messages To Tezos Addresses

by | Jun 27, 2021 | Adoption, Latest

Et Mitte, (means “send to” in Latin) is a dApp that offers just that. You can now send messages to any address on the Tezos blockchain. Messages show up as tokens in Tezos wallets. 

Blockchain Messages

Blockchain enables you to own crypto tokens personally without dependency on third parties. We love the autonomy, independence, and privacy.

We know what is registered on addresses, but there’s no way to figure out who owns the address. Your coins are on a blockchain address, which no one can connect to you personally. It’s one of the perks of self-storing your crypto straight on the blockchain.

But there are circumstances where you would want to be able to get in touch with the owner of certain assets. Take NFT’s for example. Especially collectibles.

If someone owns a specific NFT that you would love to acquire, there is no way to make the owner an offer if the owner has not set it up for auction. (Although, there is objkt.bid where people can place a bid on HicEtNunc NFT’s even though the owner has not placed them in auction. But here again, there is no way to notify the owner that you have made a bid. So, also for this dApp, Et Mitte would be a great feature.)

Either way, sending a text message to an address on the blockchain would be an interesting feature to deploy. Especially if there would be a decentralized solution.

Et Mitte

So here is Et Mitte, (means “send to” in Latin) a dApp that offers just that. You can now send messages to any address on the Tezos blockchain. Messages show up as tokens in Tezos wallets. Notifications will have to be implemented by wallet providers though.

Et Mitte has a governance token that will be used to make decisions in the future. It’s called TeddyDAO, ‘Ted’/’Teddy’. Additional perk: when you stake it, you earn a share of the fees generated when someone sends a message.

The Et Mitte project is being developed by some of the same people who are building out the RenoDAO project on Tezos.

A more advanced governance module will be injected soon into the messenger protocol.
