What is a Web3 Messaging app?
Web3 messaging apps take one of a few forms right now.
You have some that are business to consumer and look like push notification. Others allow for wallet-to-wallet comms so anyone can message someone else based on their wallet address.
Whatever the form, these services aim to improve communication between those in Web3. Right now, the vast majority of communication happens within private Discord servers, these kind of messaging apps open new avenues of communication for everyone to benefit from.
Why do you need a Web3 messaging app?
The best and worst thing about Web3 is that it's pseudonymous.
It's great as it means there's a built in layer of security not available in other forms of the web.
It's bad because it makes it very difficult to send a useful message to someone if all you know is their wallet address.
Web3 messaging apps are working to enable people to send relevant messages to the right wallet without compromising anyone's privacy.
How to choose the best Web3 messaging app
As with choosing any app, you first have to understand what it is you want to achieve.
Are you looking to communicate with multiple members of a DAO, or send a message to an individual based on their wallet address?
once you know what it is you want to achieve, you have to analyse the various providers out there and find the one that has the best reviews and most closely matches your needs.
