There are no direct competitors offering a comparable solution. There are encrypted chat platforms such as WhatsApp, but they are centralised and lack almost all of the tools Eso offers. There are blockchain hardware solutions such as the HTC Exodus device, with a hefty price tag of over $900 and do not include the Eso shared tools such as group meetings, announcement channels or calendars. One of the key advantages of Eso is that the system is completely decentralised, there is no central server in the middle, and nobody has access to any user’s private key other than the user. It is completely impossible for the Eso team to access any data on any Eso user’s account. There is no possible security compromise of our systems or servers that could lead to your data being decrypted or accessed in any way. There are two levels of encryption. The data within the contracts is encrypted with a password, and that password is stored on the contract encrypted by the user’s public key. Eso will be open source once launched, allowing anyone and everyone to analyse the code and see for themselves how Eso works. We are so confident in the security and privacy of the user’s data, we intend to host a hacking contest in the future, including a bounty. Eso is arguably the only place a user can have a 100% confidential discussion, or store data that is completely inaccessible to others, including the platform owners.
