2.4.0 - Sense+ Blockchain Integration

For most users, the app uses virtual tokens. We create on-chain transactions for many in-app activities.

People who want to use real blockchain transactions (and claim their SENSE into an EOS account) will upgrade to Sense+. This will generate a local seed from which we can generate keys for (almost) any blockchain.

Sense+ users would have access to more app features and those will include EOS, ETH, and BTC transactions.

Users will be able to easily send EOS, ETH, or BTC to @anyonewithaSenseID in the app.

  • SenseID+ (SensePlus) Accounts

  • Additional tokens (e.g. AKOIN) to be integrated.

  • Attach blockchain identity to SenseID+

  • Generate EOS Account key

  • Import existing EOS Account key

2.5.0 - Niftization (NFTs)

We will be integrating Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT/Nifty) to give a provable ownership of channels and stickers to Sense Chat users. These tokens will be transferable / tradable in the Sense Chat app.

  • Tokenization of channels (NFTs)

  • Tokenized stickers in chat (NFTs)
