Hi, first of all i like the philosophy behind the CryptoNote project and the way that you tackle security problems. what i wonder if i could use the same philosophy for other projects not just "cryptocurrencies". if any one have some others examples of project, thank you for sharing

Hi,

To answer your question, there are plenty of potential applications for CryptoNote besides the currencies. To name a few: tor, i2p, freehaven (http://freehaven.net/ ), mesh networks and so on. It is pretty much anything you can find by googling 'anonymous network'.

Hi Werner,
thank you for your reply, it's very interesting the "anonymous networking". But what do you think about the integration between social network and Cryptonote ? from where to start? and the best way to do it?

Hi,

If we are talking about an encrypted messenger based on CryptoNote protocol in a social network (like Facebook), in theory it is possible. You could create and configure an app, be it a messenger or some sort of financial service, via APIs. But so far as I know Facebook decided not to support app management and creation through the API, in order to avoid applications created/edited by bots. First, you need to decide exactly what kind of app you want to make and what purpose it's going to serve.
