Based in London and founded in 2020 by Emmanuel Gabriel, OBMeet is building decentralized privacy-preserving communication protocols that protect metadata, partially as an ethical end goal and partially for business reasons, but also as a fundamental building block of decentralized applications. OBMeet will be the new protocol to handle transient messaging and video conference at scale.
The company believes this is a necessary cornerstone for enabling the mainstream adoption of DApps and could be the next major destination where global users engage, buy, sell, play, and work.
OBMeet will operate its entire platform using its native token, $OPBT, to embody all the principles of a DAO. Members will share a stake within the platform by investing in its token, allowing the community of users to govern itself while sharing content.
