Segment 1 - Introduction

[May]

Hello, สวัสดี, 大家好, नमस्ते, Selamat!

I'm May, your host for the AMA session with Dmail!

Today, we have a special guest from the Dmail Team.

[Lucas Liu]

Hello everyone, I'm glad to have this opportunity to come to the Decentralized Club for this AMA. I'm Lucas, the co-founder of Dmail Network.

[May]

You're welcome to the Decentralized Club.

Glad we've got the introductions down, so let's get right into the session!

[Lucas Liu]

Thank you all, and now I will begin my current AMA.

[May]

Great!

[Lucas Liu]

Let me start by giving you an overview of what we're actually doing, and I have to say, it's an amazing product!

Dmail is the first mail application based on Web3.0 and Dfinity technology that integrates NFT(Each account is NFT) and distributed storage functions. Dmail lowers the threshold for users and developers to participate in the crypto-world by enabling undifferentiated transmission of information between traditional mail and blockchain mail so that users can use the blockchain as if they use the internet.

We hope that Dmail is the foundation and key connector of user communication, information sharing, and collaborative communication on and off the chain in the future. As an information interaction gateway in the new era, it will help users connect the whole blockchain world and the real world, and will also help users, developers, institutions, and assets to build reliable interactive connections and build an information storage space that will never be lost in the blockchain world.

Compared with traditional mail, Dmail gives the rights of control to users. Users can manage and access data using the private key, and can also determine the future trend of the product through community autonomy. Dmail is committed to providing users with a permanent service without a centralized server and ensures the ownership and privacy of data.

In addition, Dmail has functions such as mailboxes, NFTs, crypto assets, subscription, IMO, airdrop, data storage, enterprise version, and transaction reminders on Dfinity.

As the symbol of humans entering the Internet, the position of mailboxes on the Internet is unshakeable. However, the mailboxes we commonly use have emerged with a lot of problems. Data leakage, spam, phishing emails, and other problems have started to affect our use of mailboxes.

The Dmail team is trying to make mailbox Web3.0 to solve all the problems of current mailbox products.

Next, I will introduce our products in detail for you in the form of a picture display. You can see each detailed page of our products. After the introduction, you can experience our products according to the demo address I sent.

The first page you enter is the Settings page, which is where all the settings for your mailbox and wallet are located.

https://t.me/decentralized_club/662882

https://t.me/decentralized_club/662883

This is our Compose board, where users can compose their own email content and add attachments at the same time, and one feature that has to be mentioned is that our mailbox can send assets, which is definitely an exclusive feature.

https://t.me/decentralized_club/662885

This is our inbox function, which can receive emails from both chain mailboxes and internet mailboxes. At the same time, it covers all the functions of Internet mailboxes.

https://t.me/decentralized_club/662887

This is our Junk Mail function, all the questionable emails filtered by keywords will come here.

https://t.me/decentralized_club/662891

[Lucas Liu]

This is our outbox function, all emails sent by users can be found here.

https://t.me/decentralized_club/662891

This is our subscription feature, where users can filter the categories they are interested in and also choose the items they are interested in subscribing to, and of course, one day you are not interested anymore, you can always choose to delete it here.

https://t.me/decentralized_club/662893

Here is our asset feature where users can manage their NFTs and Tokens.

https://t.me/decentralized_club/662895

Finally, there is our NFT section where users can trade their NFT assets, covering all NFT assets in the market, and of course, it must be said that Dmail's NFT mailbox, which you can come here to trade at any time after you get it.

Let me now introduce you to our unique features:

IMO

The project can be understood as a decentralized version of the Coinlist platform by sending each Dmail user their detailed information and fundraising via email. The obvious advantage is that the email format reduces the difficulty of use for many users and greatly increases their motivation to participate in it. We will increase the percentage of Dmail core users getting credits based on the calculation of the formula so that users get real benefits.

Decentralized Cloud Drive

Based on the characteristics of Dfinity, the first decentralized storage for C-users can experience all the data, only the user can control the real completion of decentralized storage.

Enterprise-side Services

Dmail can provide decentralized storage services for enterprise-level users, ensuring data security and privacy for enterprise-level users.

NFT Features

Each mailbox of Dmail is an NFT, and it is an NFT that users can actually use, which is a real Web 3.0 DID for each user.

[May]

Please allow five minutes for the community to read.

Why build Dmail on DFINITY?

[Lucas Liu]

In particular, Dmail considers the following as the main reasons for building on the Internet Computer:

2.1 Low gas fees

Who wants to pay for every action and/or email sent? Here, there is no need for any payment to be made when interfacing with DApps built on the Internet Computer due to its reverse gas fee model. Imagine having to pay a fee (no matter how small) every time you need to send and/or receive an email.

2.2 Strong Scalability

Dmail believes that DFINITY is well ahead (compared to, say, ETH 2.0) in terms of 'sharding' whereby subnets (or shards) on the Internet Computer can be merged, removed, and in particular added (as network demand grows) without 'the need to stop Dapp services during the expansion process.'

2.3 Interoperability

Chain key cryptography opens up a world of possibilities for dApps to inter-operate with dApps on the Internet Computer, with dApps on other blockchains including Ethereum (and more so with the planned direct integration with Ethereum).

In addition to the above, Dmail is developing a new standard based on MIME specifically to bridge Dmail (and/or any other decentralized email application on the Internet Computer) with traditional email.

[May]

Awesome!

How exactly does Dmail work? Is it any different from our conventional email services providers?

[Lucas Liu]

For Dmail Network, I think there are two core elements to maintain success:

1. solving problems around real demands;

2. ecological growth.

For the demand, although the traditional mailbox is widely used, the disadvantage of centralized formation is obvious, all the information from users actually exists in the centralized domain company, which will actually have a great security risk. And in the field of privacy communication, applications like telegram have appeared, but there is no decentralized application in the mailbox field that is actually willing to be used by more people.

In addition to future development, many people in this industry believe that the Internet will go to the web3.0 era, which has a definite feature: data confirmation and information interconnection. In other words, in the web3.0 era, the connection barrier caused by the centralized node will be disregarded significantly, and everyone will have a digital identity on the network, through which they can freely travel between different applications and complete the interaction between different people, things, and applications. On this platform, we can see various functions including communication, information and asset trading, etc. Meanwhile, through the decentralized storage mechanism in the Dfinity blockchain, users can enjoy the convenience of web 3.0 and be guaranteed their information’s security and privacy.

From the ecological point of view, Dmail Network is the first mailbox application on the Dfinity blockchain, we will firstly design functions around the ecology of Dfinity, and incorporate more applications in the ecology into the functions and services of Dmail Network. Next, we will do more cross-chain & multi-chain functions and applications, so that the decentralized mailbox can be connected to Ethereum or even more blockchains, and truly become a web3.0 tool.

[May]

Dmail has solid features!

What innovative solution is Dmail bringing to topple its competitors with similar offerings in the DeFi sector?

[Lucas Liu]

Next, I'll give you a detailed explanation of why Dmail's NFT is valuable, which I believe is a question everyone is curious about. When mentioning this issue, one of the topics we have to talk about is another recent hot project - ENS. Dmail's NFT is similar to ENS in many usage scenarios, but Dmail's usage and usage scenarios are a bit richer.

ENS is actually a domain name registration protocol on which a human-readable domain name can be mapped to an ethernet address. But Dmail does this differently while having many feature points that go beyond ENS.

Dmail uses an original "mail head" system as the top-level domain name visible and used by users, under which they can put their own addresses of various public chains under it, instead of just sticking to ethereum. So it provides several key use cases: Web3 identities & usernames, native payments, enhanced domain property value (NFT), decentralized web services. Next, I will elaborate on each of these use cases.

Web3 Identity

Dmail was originally a DID build on the Dfinity network, but in the next year, Dmail will be a Web3DID that includes both Dfinity and completes multiple cross-chains. Just as Internet users can use their Google, Twitter, or Facebook accounts to log in to various websites, Dmail has the potential to become the "single sign-on" of Web3. Because Dmail's domain name is self-hosted, it eliminates the traditional use of a centralized middleman (such as Google) to log in to various platforms.

Native Payments

All Dmail domains can be used as cryptocurrency native wallet addresses, and they can receive multiple cryptocurrencies, including BTC, ETH, DOGE, and other integrated assets. With Dmail, transactions can be sent to designated users to make payments without going through a payment intermediary.

Enhanced Domain Equity Value (NFT)

Because each domain name of Dmail is an NFT and has its uniqueness. It also takes into account the functionality of a decentralized mailbox and the identity attribute of a user's Web3DID, thus revealing the value of Dmail's NFT. Unlike ENS, the user has the perpetual ownership of Dmail unless the user goes to the NFT market to trade it, but ENS requires the user to pay usage fees to use it yearly.

Decentralized Network

The entire system of Dmail is a completely decentralized network where users can choose to transfer money, send emails, and log in to other Web3 eco-applications.

To sum up, Dmail's domain name NFT will become the first DID for the majority of Web3 users in the future. Through its powerful functionality, permanent attribution, and true decentralization, it will give users a truer sense of what Web3 is.

Dmail will soon open our first domain name rush on our official website (dmai.ai) at 4 PM,1st Dec. 2021 UTC, this time the open domain name range is some 4-7 digits domain names, welcome to come and grab them, at the same time in the next year, we will launch the NFT marketplace function to support our NFT domain name resale. Interested partners can join our community for details. Please pay attention to our Twitter for specific information about the event, which is described in detail above.

Segment 2 - Twitter Questions

[May]

Does your NFT market only include ICP NFTs or many other networks? Are you planning to create your own iconic NFT for Dmail to compete with competitors?

Twitter Username: @Alon14091

[Lucas Liu]

Of course not, our NFT marketplace will cover all kinds of NFT on the market. Our most iconic NFT is our domain name system, each domain name is a unique NFT, our office will only charge a small fee, we will support the user to get the official NFT from the NFT to go to the NFT marketplace to trade, get his due revenue.

[May]

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Two more questions from our Twitter community

[Lucas Liu]

go ahead

[May]

Dmail makes use of the technology called WASM virtual machine in its protocols. Some popular blockchain is already utilizing this technology such as EOS, Ontology, and most especially Polkadot. Does this mean Dmail will be integrating the mentioned networks someday in the future?

Twitter Username: @0JeanWayne

[Lucas Liu]

This is a very good question, I can see that you have studied our project very carefully, indeed, as you said, we already had a multi-chain plan when we started this project and are actively implementing it. I believe that we will soon be able to use Dmail with the support of all the major public chains.

[May]

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

What is the long-term vision of the project to attract users from space outside of crypto or non-coiner to think about an investment in phase1?

Twitter Username: @mzLLqFkPQlYpcd5

[Lucas Liu]

Dmail is a tool product, especially a Web3 tool product, and we firmly believe that by providing a good service and feeling of using it, we can involve more common users, and at the same time, we will be compatible with all Web2 products.

https://t.me/decentralized_club/662978

[Lucas Liu]

We have clear roadmap management for the current development of the Dmail Network. The above is the overall roadmap of the project in the next year. We will push the progress of the project according to the above schedule.

For the vision of the project, as mentioned earlier, we hope that Dmail Network, as a communication tool for Web3.0, thus lowering the barrier for users to enter the crypto world and allowing them to use the blockchain like the Internet. We will become a comprehensive platform integrating multiple functions and information. On this platform, we can see multiple functions including communication, information, asset transaction, and so on. At the same time, through the decentralized storage mechanism on the Dfinity blockchain, users could enjoy the convenience of Web3.0 and ensure their information’s security and privacy.

Segment 3 - Website Questions

[May]

Dmail Network has a product called “Initial Mail Offering” or IMO. This will be my first time to see and encounter such a product. Can you please discuss with us what the Initial Mail Offering is all about? What will be its structure and who will be the customers?

Telegram Username: @Jmagsss

[Lucas Liu]

In my introduction at the beginning, I have already given a general introduction to this board. In short, we have created a new format that allows both projects and users to better participate in the whole fundraising process while having a guarantee for the participants in each of them. The structure is really only projects and users, and every Dmail user will be a participant or can be a participant. The biggest difference is that each user has a different weight of NFT depending on the domain name he holds, so I hope everyone will have a chance to get the NFT they want. We will start our NFT domain registration campaign today, welcome to participate.

[May]

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

The best thing for Dmail is to create a unique NFT that will become progressively more valuable. How does Dmail work to make unique NFTs more and more valuable? How will NFTs acquire value?

Telegram Username: @Josegamboac

[Lucas Liu]

Our NFTs are unique because there is only one of each NFT, as the domain type NFTs are different from the artwork and have more obvious uniqueness. Dmail's NFTs are the only NFTs that can be used with a tool attribute, which is unique, and Dmail's NFTs will soon be available for a paid registration, so interested parties are welcome to participate on the Dmail website. Every user who holds our NFT can receive more revenue on the platform.

[May]

Dmail’s next biggest plan is their email domain registration event, taking place on December 1st. Can you offer us email domain registration event information? Who can access the event? Investment?

Telegram Username: @lestmarisv13

[Lucas Liu]

Every user can participate in it and come together to grab our NFT, just enter our official website to participate in it, the specific information is as follows.

https://twitter.com/dmailofficial/status/1463881153362874374?s=20

[May]

These are really great answers!

Dmail has very impressive components! I like it!

It's all well-planned and crafted!

[Lucas Liu]

Segment 4 - Live Questions

Dear guest, please pick the best questions now.

Please select the ones that recognized your favorite emoji (😘)

[𝙕𝙖𝙝𝙞𝙧]

Why did you choose the DFINITY blockchain to base Dmail on? What benefits does this bring to your project and your users? What are some of the problems you are trying to solve with Dmail and how do you plan to attract new users to adopt Dmail as their new mailbox? Can people without cryptographic knowledge also use Dmail? 😘

[Lucas Liu]

In particular, Dmail considers the following as the main reasons for building on the Internet Computer:

2.1 Low gas fees

Who wants to pay for every action and/or email sent? Here, there is no need for any payment to be made when interfacing with DApps built on the Internet Computer due to its reverse gas fee model. Imagine having to pay a fee (no matter how small) every time you need to send and/or receive an email.

In addition to the above, Dmail is developing a new standard based on MIME specifically to bridge Dmail (and/or any other decentralized email application on the Internet Computer) with traditional email.

[May]

Three more questions to go! 🥳

[Alberys Rodriguez]

Something that has been seen for the first time is a mail platform that contains the availability of NFT and tokens as technological evolution. So, I would like to know what your plans are so far to continue to evolve the technology in this way. What is in store for Dmail for the future? Maybe even the users themselves. 😘

[Lucas Liu]

When we look back over the last 100 years of global technological transformation, we can see that advances in science and technology have boosted human society's productivity, as well as providing large profits for venture capitals. Each generation has its own generational opportunities. At this point, it is clear that blockchain technology is one of the most important and cutting-edge technologies of our day, with the ability to affect and potentially change the paradigm of our daily lives in every way in the future.

The crypto market, influenced by blockchain technology, is closer to the substance of the market, finance, and trade, and it offers people a way to conduct transactions without trust, potentially improving the overall efficiency of the financial market. Although there will be many "gray" areas or bubbles in this market, I believe that as more mainstream institutions pay attention to this market and as more and more governments across the world begin to consider how to integrate the crypto market into the regulatory framework, this market will improve.

Last but not least, such a fast and emerging market means that there are many wealthy opportunities to explore. Many traditional market applications may come and develop on the blockchain in the future. At the same time, crypto initiatives may be able to fix the pain points of traditional applications, attracting more capital and institutions' interest. Dmail Network is likewise intended to address some of the issues that exist in the traditional mailbox sector. These are the primary reasons why I believe the blockchain market will continue to grow.

[May]

Two more questions to go! 🥳

[Lestmaris Vera]

I think the difficulties and challenges are more for you because you are doing something that no one has done before and you are improving it. Since they had the idea for Dmail until today. What is Dmail doing differently? How Dmail will revolutionize the market?😘

[Lucas Liu]

When we set up the team, we are looking for partners who have the same development philosophy and are skillful and professional in their sector. Therefore, although we had some difficulties in the process of developing the project, we finally completed the challenge with our ability, persistence, and belief. For us, the greater challenge may come from the external environment. Because our project is global, but the policies of each region in the world are different. In the promotion of the project, we need to pay great attention to the different policy requirements of each region. The sudden policy requirements of some important countries may also affect the local promotion of our project and the attitude of our investors towards the follow-up development, which may be the biggest challenge we face.

At the same time, Dfinity is still at a relatively early stage, and faces many problems in development, especially from the perspective of language (RUST/MOTOKO) implementation, such as no complete documentation, no best path for technical implementation, developers are still in the figuring out stage, development cycle and time vary, etc.

[Crypto Jiren]

Dmail's goal is to solve problems of interaction, communication, and information exchange between users inside and outside the chain. How will it do this? What alternatives and improvements does Dmail bring to the Blockchain world today? How does what Dmail offers to benefit us? 😘

[May]

Aaaaaannnddd it's a wrap! 🥳

[Lucas Liu]

Thank you for your valuable time today, and my AMA today is coming to an end here. The last thing to say is that we are about to open our first domain name grabbing activity at 1st Dec UTC 4 PM, and this opening is for some of the 4 to 7 digit mailbox names. We will charge a certain registration fee according to different rarities.

However, there are a few points that need to be emphasized.

1. all mailbox names are NFT assets.

2. all grabbed NFT assets are supported for re-trading.

3. all mailbox names once delivered, the holding period is permanent.

[May]

Thank you so much!

[Lucas Liu]

Interested parties are welcome to join our community or follow us on social media for specific information about our registration. That's it for the AMA today. Thank you all!
