Blockchain technology incubator Adel has announced the alpha launch of AdelPoint. This is Adel’s first released project since its launch in December 2016.
AdelPoint is an anonymous and encrypted, decentralized file transfer service. This browser-based application utilises the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS). Files are safely encrypted in the browser using AES256, before they are uploaded, thus ensuring end-to-end file obfuscation. Then a file verification hash is generated and embedded into a unique URL along with the encryption key. The sender delivers this unique URL in a secure manner to the recipient for retrieval. AdelPoint’s alpha release supports file transfers of up to 500 Megabytes (MB), allowing users to share files that far exceed the current limits of email applications. The next (beta) release will support profit sharing with infrastructure contributors through online advertisements.
Gabriel Dusil, Co-Founder and General Manager, Adel: It is incredibly gratifying to see the fruits of our team’s hard work with the incubation of AdelPoint. Since launching version 2.0 of our portal last month, the Adel community have been evaluating over fifty promising ideas using our AdelWiki. Popular ideas will graduate to the Project Planning stage where resources will be allocated for further development. AdelPoint is the first of many projects that our team plans to launch in 2019. Our aim to promote the effective use of blockchain for the global mass market.
AdelPoint has been designed from the ground up for consumer adoption. Users do not need any prior knowledge of coding, blockchain, cryptocurrencies, or hashing algorithms to utilise the app. Use of blockchain ensures file transfer integrity, decentralised resilience, and transparency. Any revenue accrued from AdelPoint’s ecosystem will be shared with AdelPoint’s Node Contributors.
