Phantasma brings a decentralized content distribution system running on the blockchain, with strong emphasis on privacy and security.
Phantasma is a new platform defining both a storage specification and a protocol for sending messages from one source to one or multiple destinations via smart contracts. With Phantasma it is possible to implement emails, chat, oracles, file transfers and other message-based systems on top of a blockchain.
Phantasma is a new standard for seamless and secure data sharing, management and integration, across a multitude of communication partners, connected users and dApps in the NEO ecosystem. The goal of Phantasma is to provide a new adaptable framework to fill the needs for data management from dApps. By providing a uniform, standard interface (API) with all the fundamental data access semantics that applications require, Phantasma will boost the productivity of dApp developers, broaden its potential and energize the NEO ecosystem. The targeted focus on access control with any desired granularity, supports a vast array of use cases, customizable by every user according to their unique needs.
Phantasma is an autonomous and decentralized network running as a smart-contract on the NEO blockchain. The code executing the platform is public and immutable, without any elevated permissions for the creator/admin (Phantasma team). The platform de-intermediation allows for trustless confidence in the system, subject to the timely review and analysis by community experts, isolating the health of the ecosystem from any particular localized shocks.
Storing real world data on the blockchain is prohibitively expensive. Managing it becomes impossible to do, considering how little infrastructural support there are to do it. Developers are faced with mounting implementation details and pitfalls when trying to scale up and developer more complex and inter-connected dApps in the decentralized world.
Relying in third party services for something as critical and personal like email is dangerous. Companies can be hacked, bankruptcies can happen and government entities can force access into emails. And for those who are creating videos, games, music and other monetized content, giving up a large percentage of your revenue can be very discouraging.
Taking email as an example, Phantasma based-mailboxes will be compatible with standard email addresses, and thus can communicate with email systems outside the blockchain.
Privacy is also extremely important, so while distributed, all data within Phantasma is encrypted ensuring total control of content, with no one but the content owner decides who can access it and how it will be distributed. In other words, ownership of the private keys of wallet means ownership of all content stored in that wallet. And since everything is encrypted, without the private key nobody can read it or steal it from the owners, not even the Phantasma developers can access it.

Proposal and design of Phantasma. Development of initial Proof of Concept.
Phantasma participated in the dApp competition organized by City of Zion and was chosen as one of the top winners.
Phantasma Protocol and the 1st app, PhantasmaMail, were presented in public for the first time at NEO Devcon, San Francisco.
Phantasma private and public token sale. MVPs of the first Phantasma dApp : secure email, for Mobile and Web
Release of Phantasma SDK, which will let any third-party developers start building their own Phantasma based products, along with release of Oracle Nodes, as an example of SDK usage.
Phantasma relay nodes will allow Phantasma apps to break free from the transaction speed limits of blockchain. Start of split of Phantasma from NEO network into its own blockchain, using the NEOX protocol for cross-chain interoperability.
Storage nodes will start being rolled out to public, so that anyone can take part of the Phantasma network. Porting of the SDK to support native blockchain. Release of main net, native tokens to be issued according to NEP5 ownership.
Digital Commerce app will be released, allowing anyone to deploy their own decentralized e-shop.
A service to discover Phantasma dApps will be created from point, forward, once the third-parties developer support has reached critical mass.
Phantasma video streaming will be released, as showcase for a dApp with heavy data loads.
