Phantasma brings a decentralized content distribution system running on the blockchain, with strong emphasis on privacy and security.

Project stage

Beta version

Detailed description

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.
