Hong Kong-based NYNJA Group, a communications and mobile technology company, has announced NYNJA, a communications app with a built-in digital marketplace and cryptocurrency wallet.

NYNJA is a cross-platform app that combines voice, text and visual messaging with  business management and e-commerce features powered by its own financial ecosystem and cryptocurrency, NYNJACoin.

"While there is no shortage of mobile messaging apps, there has never been an all-in-one communications app that seamlessly supports the messaging and transactional needs of both individual and business users with the utmost security protocols available today," said co-founder and CEO Salvatore Guerrieri.

"NYNJA is the first app of its kind to harness the full potential of its user base, empowering them with a cross-platform multimedia messaging app and a built-in global marketplace backed by secure Blockchain protocols."

The NYNJA marketplace allows users to buy and sell goods and services internationally through an open API using NYNJACoin, the ERC20 standard cryptocurrency of NYNJA's integrated financial ecosystem. With NYNJACoin, users can also access exclusive groups and pay for proprietary in-group content such as licensed assets or timed consultations. Users can also earn NYNJACoin for viewing ads and sharing branded material like sticker packs or coupons.

Each account can be organised according to the user's social, consumer and business lives, and comes with a secure Ethereum wallet enabling users to transact freely within the app for fast international payment transfers without the need to pay external payment providers or internal platform fees. The open-source platform will enable developers to extend NYNJA with value-added applications.

In addition to standard messaging features, NYNJA features scheduled messaging and translation. NYNJA is global, integrated and secure across every platform and device, and lets users make free Internet calls and transfer calls to any phone.

NYNJA's architecture features secure encryption of cloud data storage for saving messages, images and files, and features an intuitive interface featuring a patent-pending concentric wheel navigation system. The wheel enables navigation of the app using only one thumb and eliminates the need for a back button.

"More than a quarter of the world uses mobile messaging apps, but the current class of apps falls short because they are either global but too basic, for example WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, or have adoption limitations due to being region-specific as in the case of Line and WeChat," said NYNJA co-founder and President Alejandro Gramont.

"Furthermore, many messaging apps are geared primarily for personal and social use rather than business; and most business-class apps lack the capabilities required to truly qualify them as enterprise-grade. NYNJA is in a class of its own as the only all-encompassing, highly customisable communications app with a Blockchain-based marketplace and financial ecosystem."


NYNJA, in development since Q117, is currently in beta and the public token sale for NYNJACoin will launch on April 17, 2018.

At launch the NYNJA App will be available on Android, iOS, and Web with native development of Mac, Linux and Windows versions to follow.
