Etherescan Adds New Messaging Feature For Anonymous People: 'Blockscan Chat'

The team behind the popular blockchain discovery and analytics platform Etherscan has launched an Ethereum-based wallet-to-wallet instant messaging service called “Blockscan Chat”.

Blockscan is currently in beta testing mode and it currently allows users to join instant wallet-to-wallet conversations, access chats from multiple devices, block spam or unwanted addresses, and get notifications on block explorer when a message is received.

While the new feature is a great way to talk to other people anonymously — like negotiating an anonymous purchase, for example — it could be particularly useful for dealing with whitehat hackers who are often leave messages embedded in Ethereum transactions to communicate with individuals and to mine cryptocurrency platforms.

Last week’s Multichain hack, which saw an alleged whitehat hacker returned 322 Ether (but kept a hefty fee for searchers) and PolyNetwork $610 million from last year, both linked regarding the discussion through Ethereum transactions as part of the negotiation between perpetrators and victims.

Etherescan subtly revealed this new feature in a January 26 tweet that reads “wonder what is this for…?” with a screenshot depicting the message notifications on the platform.

In addition to begging hackers to return the money for a bounty, such as a service that could be useful in the NFT market.

Twitter user “bdmartino” argued that the feature could be used for NFT buying negotiations between buyers and sellers, adding that if the transaction is done by a decentralized exchange, both both parties can reduce fees associated with NFT platforms such as OpenSea.

Regarding user privacy and data storage, Blockscan notes that their information is stored through a “global storage service provider” with servers across multiple regions, with no data at all. activity will be deleted after 24 months.

It also stipulates that information will not be transacted to third parties, but will be disclosed or transferred to cooperating parties such as data warehouses, IT service providers, and data analytics agencies.

According to its terms of service, any user who violates its accepted usage policies such as providing false, inaccurate or misleading information may be barred from participating in part or all both Blockscan and Etherscan related services.
