VES coming soon to:
Filecoin, Maidsafe, Storj and Sia have opened the door to a paradigm change in how the Internet will used to store and access content – distributed storage.
Unlike centralized services like Google Drive or Dropbox, distributed storage requires the use of encryption and along with that comes the problem of losing the key. By mitigating the key loss issue, VES enables distributed storage to become practical for mainstream use.
Distributed Storage will soon be integrated into the VESvault CloudDash app along with currently available Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive. Users will not only be able to select multiple storage options, they’ll be able to use them all concurrently, providing an even higher level of redundancy and options.

The 1st API integration is here!
The horror stories are mounting. People are losing all the assets in their digital wallets by losing their keys, Seeds, hardware, pins and passwords. While some people are OK with this risk, for the rest of us, VES provides a robust means of recovering our wallets if we lose the passphrases that unlock them.
You can go to wallet.ves.world to see a VES enabled version of MyEtherWallet/MyCrypto. There, you can use the Keystore option to backup your wallet password to your VESvault. If you ever forget your password you can retrieve it with your VESkey. And, once you’ve set up your VES recovery network, if you ever forget your VESkey you can recover everything with VES, including your wallet password.
VES turns the Keystore option into a much safer and more secure method of storing your private key. You password is encrypted and stored in the cloud, while the private key it encrypts is safely stored locally on multiple separate storage devices. You get more security through a better separation of password and key, and more safety in more redundancy for both the password and key.
It’s way too inconvenient to have a separate email account specifically for encrypted emails.
It would be far better if we could simply use our existing IMAP email accounts and selectively use encryption when appropriate and opt to not use it when it’s too inconvenient.
Then, there’s also the issue of losing your encryption key and forever losing all your email history. These two problems have made end-to-end encryption impractical for widespread use with email.
VESmail solves these two problems. VES Recovery provides a robust means of recovering your end-to-end encrypted email history after key loss. And, VESmail allows you to selectively send encrypted emails to others who uses VESmail, or to send an open text message to those who do not. All of this from the same, existing IMAP email address, such as Gmail or Hotmail.
