I'm trying out this new encrypted, decentralized, P2P letter messaging thing called Bitmessage. It's based on Bitcoin and written in Python. I use encrypted Jabber for real-time messaging but to write simple letters without attachments to friends this seems like a pretty great thing, so I want to give it a try! Want to try it with me?
A windows binary can be downloaded here...https://bitmessage.org/wiki/Main_Page
And instructions to install on OSX or Linux are here...(it's easy, don't worry.)https://bitmessage.org/wiki/Compiling_instructions
And a guide on how to set yourself up with your first Bitmessage are here, but it's pretty straight forward anyway.http://cryptojunky.com/blog/2013/03/09/setting-up-and-using-bitmessage-an-encrypted-communications-platform-based-on-bitcoin/
And lastly, my testing Bitmessage address is here!
Once you're set up, send me a message and I'll reply to you to test it out. Then post your address in this thread!
