What it does
Provides a non discriminant platform for global communication. Since it's based off the blockchain, communication is transparent, pseudo-anonymous and decentralized. This enables open conversation and freedom of expression for everybody. Further implementation of channels expands upon the concept, and allows users to start topic-focused conversations.
