Encrypted messaging development


  • Demarkets Admin

    Hi, with demarkets.io we are still developing the encrypted messaging for just after 3.0 release.

    But we would be happy to already have some feedback on what we already developed, and some suggestions on what to add 😉

    Encrypted messaging ( in development )

    alt text


    Current Features:

    • Single messaging
    • Emojis
    • Small images (sent as text)
    • Contact management

    What we are currently working on for the 0.1 beta version:

    • Messaging request (send a request to an address / accept it and start discussion)
    • Cleaner interface

    What we discuss

    • Temporary messages
    • Add Bold and Italic to the formatting
    • Add group discussions

    Community suggestions

    • Add partial markdown support

  • Admin

    @ffmad looks very awesome!!! 🤩

    Regarding your discussion for text formatting: It may be beneficial to include markdown support as a whole -except the dangerous ones like image integration from 3rd party locations. What do you think? Syntax for users is easy and there are js libraries available for integration. Giant set of features with relatively low effort.

    yeah, good idea 👍

    @ffmad still looks amazing.

    Another helpful feature would be a text template management. Especially very helpful for vendors.

    An additional sub-module to create text templates with an additional field to define a shortcut.

    If the person is writing and starts a word with the ^ sign, he gets an in-place shortcut overview ready to choose and click on, to insert the text template instantly. Alternatively he just writes the shortcut name (^myStandardReply) out and presses enter.

    What do you think?

    Next helpful feature: Internal link to a product listing detail view across markets, to markets itself ,other modules like certain bots, etc.

    Though the API of the MP and the framework of PD must deliver the tools for that.



  • @ffmad can we try this out with some sort of beta alrdy? would love to be a beta tester!!

    also can you explain to me how you did it? how does it work?


  • Admin

    Next helpful feature: adding https://github.com/howdyai/botkit support and utilizing it to deliver 1st level support in the support section of PD.


  • Admin

    Minor thing: Avatar support in the contacts management.


  • Admin

    Minor thing: Auto accept chat requests option combined with auto answers like “out of office” messages at certain times from the proposed text-templates.


  • Admin

    Minor thing: Video conferencing indication option; Users are able to set their conferencing ID for different platforms. The icon is perhaps shown in the top bar. A click on it invokes a call with an installed video conferencing software. E.g. Jitsi, Zoom, Hangouts, whatever.

    That would complete the communications experience. This is just a little helper, nothing important.

    No sorry, It’s impossible before 3.0 😅

    In the end it’s just the use of SMSG, which is encrypted messaging, with an UI ^^

    Block/Ban/Ignore feature would be quite handy.

    I presume this is done using SMSG chain, if yes, then:
    Maybe you could add a small fee payment for more than X characters per day, to prevent spamming.
    This way sending a picture, a message will cost you -Y characters.
    You could buy extra characters by simply sending some 0 value anon transaction with a high fee (so miners can benefit from it). That would be awesome !!!

    P.S. Most probably you can bypass it by using the cli but still somehow the spamming needs to be addressed@



  • I think adding a “saved messages”/notes features just like telegram has would be a smart move. allowing sellers/buyers to send messages/information to themselves.

    That’s an interesting idea 🙂


  • Demarkets Admin

    Added the “Temporary messages” features, like telegram we can have messages that delete after some time



  • @ffmad that’s a great idea too. basically let’s just clone every telegram feature 🙂



  • maybe a private mode where you can have your client only accept messages from addresses in your contacts? this could help with the spam issue
