After Brave Internet browser, Solana hosts Bonafida’s Jabber mobile messaging application


If you have a Solana wallet, you might be at a download link to chat with friends, follow community discussions, or even earn money from your DMs.

Bonfida announced the launch of Jabber on Solana, which he said was the “very first mobile messaging app built on any blockchain”.

But there was one particularly interesting feature to note. Bonfida’s announcement said,

“You can easily monetize your DMs and groups by setting up a price per message (in SOL) that other users will have to pay to send you a message. This gives content creators a confident way to monetize their work and interactions.

In addition, Jabber users could also send or accept tips and send encrypted personal messages. However, at press time, messages in group chats are not encrypted. Additionally, Bonfida provided a long list of prohibited jurisdictions including the UK and the US.

Communication in the crypto industry usually takes place through a variety of channels – Telegram, Reddit, Twitter Spaces, etc. As Bonfida also detailed, blockchain-based messaging apps offer a number of use cases across the ecosystem.

Stretch Solana?

The fifth largest blockchain by market capitalization has already taken a step forward in the IT and communications sectors. Solana’s partnership with privacy-protecting internet browser Brave, which introduced a crypto wallet, is one example. In addition, the Brave crypto wallet is expected to integrate Solana next year.

If such partnerships multiply, there is a good chance that an unencrypted user encountering encryption or blockchain features in their digital tools will come up against an infrastructure powered by Solana. However, as Bonfida’s list of prohibited jurisdictions has shown, app creators’ own compliance policies will also have an important role to play in Solana’s growth.

Coding meets compliance

Iranian students eager to take ConsenSys Academy course shocked when emailed suspend their registration. The reason? As Iranian students, they were would have based in a country hit by US legal sanctions.

However, Solana co-founder Raj Gokal guest students participate in a Solana coding course instead.

Not just apps, but as blockchain communities go global, it’s clear that regulation and compliance will continue to affect crypto adoption.
