BitNote Launches Encrypted Notes on Avalanche

BitNote, a dApp for encrypted notes, has launched on the Avalanche C-Chain. The platform offers a unique approach to personal data management by allowing users to securely store and share their passwords and confidential information on-chain with end-to-end encryption. BitNote's launch on Avalanche aligns with a shared focus on bringing real-world use cases and greater utility into the Avalanche ecosystem.

BitNote works to solve a core problem people face in their everyday lives: Where do I store my sensitive information? BitNote aims to be a secure storage platform for private data, including seed phrases, private keys, safe combinations, or even an encrypted family recipe or another highly personal item shared with loved ones.

Centralized password managers are often opaque in their data practices, have high ​​subscription costs, and pose the threat of going out of business. Those storing private information on Apple, Google, or Microsoft accounts risk getting locked out of their accounts or having their devices stolen. 

Leveraging the Avalanche C-Chain and a fully local, browser-based dApp, BitNote has built a decentralized, permissionless, open-source, permanent storage platform allowing users to self-custody their important information. 

BitNote brings an existing Web2 product on-chain and removes the need for a centrally controlled database and hosted front end. Encrypted personal data is permanently stored on-chain and can be accessed from any device with a browser. Avalanche stood out as the ideal chain for BitNote's unique needs, offering sub-second transaction finality, low transaction fees, security, and impressive consistency.

What Does BitNote Offer?

  • Secure Data Storage: Data is protected with strong end-to-end encryption and is stored permanently on the Avalanche C-Chain. 
  • Decentralized, Censorship Resistant, and Permissionless: BitNote is a highly decentralized application with no single points of failure; users cannot be banned or locked out of their accounts.
  • Cold Wallet Generator: Easily create and store "cold" crypto wallets for long-term digital asset storage.
  • Security Key Support: BitNote supports secure, decentralized account access through security keys (e.g., Yubikeys).
  • Note Sharing: Notes can be shared securely with other BitNote users.
  • Succession: Succession rules can be defined for each note, safely storing information for extended periods before being passed down to appropriate beneficiaries.
  • Data Portability: BitNote allows notes to be easily imported and exported, ensuring data is never locked in. 
  • Referrals: BitNote's completely on-chain referral system allows users to earn 30% of the protocol fees their referrals generate.
“BitNote is a perfect example of the ideal consumer app on Avalanche: It offers clear utility by bringing a common Web2 product on-chain and improves it by removing the need for a centrally controlled database and hosted front-end," said Nadim Chamoun, Sr. BD Associate at Ava Labs. “It also introduces new Web3 native features, such as private wallet creation, all made possible and greatly scalable by using Avalanche in the back-end.”
"Avalanche has been a game-changer for BitNote,” said Rockwell Shah, Founder of BitNote. “Avalanche consensus enables us to build real decentralized applications for everyday users. We can have fast, inexpensive transactions in a network with high levels of decentralization, which is critical for our use case. We are so excited to continue partnering with Avalanche to build out the future of BitNote and help people protect and pass down their most important secrets.” 
Getting Started

Users can create a username and secure their account with either a strong master password or a hardware security key. BitNote is a "pay as you go" system without subscriptions or recurring fees. Users can fund their accounts using crypto, credit, or debit cards and only pay to create, edit, or delete notes.
