============
Bitmessage is a P2P communication protocol used to send encrypted messages to
another person or to many subscribers. It is decentralized and trustless,
meaning that you need-not inherently trust any entities like root certificate
authorities. It uses strong authentication, which means that the sender of a
message cannot be spoofed. BM aims to hide metadata from passive eavesdroppers
like those ongoing warrantless wiretapping programs. Hence the sender and receiver
of Bitmessages stay anonymous.
