Hello Secret community! Today we are excited to feature a roadmap update from another Secret Application in our ecosystem: ALTER.
In the age of modern day communication, email remains one of the most adopted methods of communication. In 2018, it was estimated that around 124 billion business related emails were sent and received each day (roughly 1,435,186 per second)! In Web2, most people and businesses use non encrypted services such Gmail or Yahoo. With the advent of privacy-preserving blockchain technology such as Secret Network, there emerges the distinct opportunity for innovation within the communications vertical.
ALTER is a decentralized privacy-preserving blockchain based communications platform. This platform is aiming to bring encryption to every conceivable communication vector: email, messaging applications, group chats, voice chats, and more!
ALTER uses advanced cryptographic models to securely transfer messages that are encrypted together with Secret Network’s smart contracts. The end result is that users have access to their encrypted data using public and private key architecture built directly into Secret Network.
In October 2021, ALTER successfully launched its MVP: decentralized encrypted peer-to-peer messaging. Following the successful launch, ALTER is well positioned to meet the growing demand for privacy in 2022. Additionally, the $ALTER token was launched and is currently available for purchase on SecretSwap and Sienna. The ALTER roadmap for 2022 features the activation of a revenue share model, as well as decentralized governance going live!
ALTER has massive goals for 2022 - in Q2 ALTER is aiming to achieve the following:
- Native iOS demo and non-native Android application
- Improved address book for contacts
- Keplr login and key authentication
- Basic file management and storage
- Enhanced private and group chats (additional features to more easily manage chats, such as avatars, file sharing, emojis, and much more!)
In Q3 ALTER is aiming to achieve the following:
- Community channels
- Implementation of revenue share model for $ALTER token
- Governance for $ALTER
- Email bridge with protocol
In Q4 ALTER is aiming to achieve the following:
- Voice calls
- Video conferencing
- Calendar schedules
- Subscription based bulk messaging
- Enterprise support
Stay tuned for our upcoming release of ALTER products and services! The ALTER team will continue to build the most decentralized, flexible and scalable communications platform for Web 3.0. This will be the most exciting year for the development of blockchain applications and adoption, as ALTER is due for major developments across the board. We are truly grateful and humble by all of our community support and we are looking forward to another great year! -ALTER
ALTER is a private & secure communications application utilizing the privacy features offered by Secret Network smart contracts. Users can create a unique private key to unlock and view their encrypted messages. ALTER uses advanced cryptographic models to securely transfer messages that are encrypted together with Secret Network’s smart contracts. For users’ data privacy, ALTER does not have access to or store any private key information. $ALTER is the native product and governance token.

The reveal of the Alter 2022 roadmap is right in line with the reveal of Shockwave in early January of 2022. With more products being funded and built, more creators launching on Secret Network, and more supporters and partners than ever helping to ensure our global growth, the future has never been brighter for Web3 privacy.
If you’re a developer, you can also read through our latest announcements re: the new $225M Secret Ecosystem Fund, which contain details on how to connect with the SCRT Labs team and the rest of our developer ecosystem. Additionally, check out Secret Network grants and get started building today!
If you’re anyone who is passionate about ensuring Web3 users have the data privacy protections they need and deserve, become a Secret Agent. It is our mission to make sure the decentralized web we’re building is one that truly empowers - and one that is accessible to all.
Thank you for your support - the Shockwave is just starting! 🤫
