Blockstack provides private data lockers and a universal login with blockchain based security and encryption.
We leverage that technology to give developers a safe and easy way to manage secrets of their apps. A new way where every bit of data stays yours and is encrypted by default.
The platform handles user authentication using the Blockstack Naming Service (BNS), a decentralized naming and public key infrastructure built on top of the Bitcoin blockchain. It handles storage using Gaia, a scalable decentralized key/value storage system that looks and feels like localStorage, but lets users securely store and share application data via user-selected storage systems.Learn more at Blockstack.org
