Today, we will continue with one more application of IM little known in the Linux field, called "Adamant".
Basically, "Adamant" is a instant messaging application open source based on blockchain technology (blockchain), which in turn, serves as Crypto Wallet (crypto wallet) y Cryptocurrency Exchange System (Exchange).
"Adamant" it's our fourth instant messaging application spread, which is also multipurpose and decentralized under blockchain technology, since, in a previous post, which we invite you to read after this publication is finished, we wrote about Juggernaut, Sphinx and Status. Of which we briefly express the following:
"Juggernaut, Sphinx and Status not only have interesting advantages as messaging applications, but also as a mechanism or means of payment, since they are based on blockchain technology." Juggernaut, Sphinx and Status: Interesting instant messaging apps.

What is Adamant?
In short, your Official website, describes the application as follows:

However, as we explained at the beginning of the publication, it is a instant messaging application de open source based on blockchain technology (blockchains) which in turn, serves as a Crypto Wallet (crypto wallet) and Cryptocurrency Exchange System (exchange). And on these characteristics and others, we will delve further below.

Its decentralized messaging is independent of governments, corporations and developers, therefore, no one can control, block, deactivate, restrict or censor accounts. All messages are encrypted with the Diffie-Hellman Curve25519, Salsa20, Poly1305 algorithms and signed by SHA-256 + Ed25519 EdDSA. The private keys never leave the used device. And the sequence of the messages and their authenticity is guaranteed by the implemented blockchain platform.
It offers users an easy-to-use Crypto wallet, to facilitate access to the world of cryptocurrencies quickly.
