Wallet-to-Wallet Messaging

Built as a crypto native protocol, Sending.Network’s wallet-based Decentralized ID, which is inherently public, supports an assets negotiation and exchange environment that no centralized chat solution can accomplish.

In the Web3 world, chat is not just about sending and receiving messages but a means to facilitate asset trading, e.g., in-game NFTs. Imagine your dream NFT is right in front of you, sitting in a wallet address, and you are ready to make a generous offer. But how can you contact the owner? There is no email or cell phone number to use. Wallet-to-wallet messaging enables you to start negotiating with the NFT owner at once.

Below we provide a specific use case describing how the user contacts an unknown wallet address.
