SilentVault Begins Silencing the Blockchain

25 August 2014 – A new service became available today from SilentVault.com.  The virtual enterprise has developed an asset transfer and exchange technology that makes it possible for holders of Bitcoin to silence the blockchain.  The technology may be downloaded as a web-based application or a Spark (XMPP, Jabber) plugin.  To use the service, a bitcoin wallet user transfers a minimum of 0.02 bitcoin to their SilentVault wallet where it appears as “Silent Bitcoin.”  Thereafter, payments to other SilentVault wallets, exchanges to other asset types, or transfers out to any other bitcoin wallet take place without any further entries to the blockchain for the originating bitcoin.

“You can bring bitcoin in and arrange to spend it back out, any time, anywhere.  Once you have assets in your SilentVault wallet, you can use it to make person-to-person payments to other SilentVault wallets, offer or accept exchanges for other supported types of assets, or redeem your vouchers.  We are developing a market place system that will integrate payments with business activities,” says Justin Turrell, technology lead for the SilentVault team.

Marketing and business development lead Tyrone Johnson says, “Why not park your bitcoin and silence the blockchain?  Within the SilentVault system there is no ledger of transactions.  So while you make payments with your Silent Bitcoin and those who receive your payments use their Silent Bitcoin to make further payments, nothing is registered on the block chain.  No transaction, including an internal voucher asset to voucher asset exchange, generates an entry on the blockchain.  Only when a bitcoin is exchanged out to a bitcoin wallet destination does any new information show up on the blockchain.  If you value your privacy, you’ll prefer a silent blockchain.”

“We created SilentVault,” says lead of operations paesean, “because privacy and anonymity are important aspects of freedom.  We’re interested in making a better world with more freedom.  We hope you’ll join us.”

Those interested in creating a new SilentVault wallet can head to our web site at SilentVault.com for detailed instructions, tutorials, and FAQs.

What Is SilentVault?
SilentVault is a new technology developed to provide for peer-to-peer payments and exchanges with anonymity among a growing variety of asset classes.  SilentVault is a wallet application which allows the user to bring in Bitcoin or Litecoin, spend them as Silent Bitcoin or Silent Litecoin, and thereby silence the block chain on their original crypto-coin.  Other currencies have been developed into SilentVault assets, such as Silent Silver.

When Is it Okay to Discuss SilentVault?
The service launch press release for the general public goes out on Monday 25 August 2014, but you can start talking about us, now.  We aren’t trying to “embargo” this news.  Feel free to express yourself – we do.

Where Can I Learn More?
The best place for more information is SilentVault.com where we have extensive tutorials, including screen shots, to help with the basic technology.  Much of our work involves Voucher-Safe technology, so additional resources, including video tutorials, are available at Voucher-Safe.org.  Users interested in integrating their SilentVault wallet with payment acceptance systems should examine OnionPay.com.

Why Silence the BlockChain?
Bitcoin, Litecoin, and other blockchain-based crypto-currencies are useful tools.  However, the blockchain tracks every exchange.  Why not park your bitcoin and silence the blockchain?  Within the SilentVault system there is no ledger of transactions.  So while you make payments with your Silent Bitcoin and those who receive your payments use their Silent Bitcoin to make further payments, nothing is registered on the block chain.  No transaction, including an internal voucher asset to voucher asset exchange, generates an entry on the blockchain.  Only when a bitcoin is exchanged out to a bitcoin wallet destination does any new information show up on the blockchain.  If you value your privacy, you’ll prefer a silent blockchain.

How Does It Work?
You can find extensive tutorials for starting a new SilentVault wallet on our web site.  Using Voucher-Safe technology, any published asset can be used in voucher form to make payments or conduct exchange operations.  Any user can make payments, receive payments, keep receipts, delete their own transaction data, make exchange offers, accept exchange offers, and redeem vouchers for assets such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, silver, and where individuals are willing, fiat currencies.  In other words, SilentVault works much like cash and other anonymous forms of payment.  Payments are just another kind of message.
