Why this project?

Because we need to encrypt and secure the Internet. The Internet is broken and we need to fix it. Thanks people like Edward Snowden we know today that the NSA (and also other intelligence agencies too) operates a global surveillance on citizens. We can't loose our right of freedom, our right of privacy to centralized governmental authorities. Now it's our move. It's time to fight back!

I also like the Bitmessage project. But building thinks by myself feels like I can contribute to the Internet. And coding this with PHP because it's an easy-to-learn programming language and every one can contribute to this project.
