Abstract

Secure messaging is very important especially in critical applications like communication of automated cars. In this article we present a simulation of a blockchain messaging platform based on the Bitcoin protocol. The mechanism can be used for exchanging privately and securely messages and images. Each member of the blockchain can become a miner and collect rewards or just a plebeian client and send messages without actively using the platform.
