What is an Ephemeral Layer?

A messaging functionality that is extremely secure.
Ephemeral layer, this is a unique one.
     

The word of ephemeral, it’s not Latin origin, which means it’s probably Greek and means it doesn’t last that long it’s; it’s a temporary something that only lasts for a small amount of time.      

So if “ephemeral layer” is a software layer, it holds data that deletes itself so it’s mutable data. Here, it’s a messaging system where the message only lasts long enough for the receiver to see it and that could be a machine and act upon it and then it’s deleted permanently.      

That’s what it is there used to be an email company back in the day (I forget what I called it) that had ephemeral email. You would email and as soon as somebody viewed it for 30 seconds it had this little gift that would show it exploding. This service sent it as an image and erased the image of a server after 30 seconds.      

So any “ephemeral” has been in many aspects in tech but I guess an “ephemeral layer” here. We’re talking about a messaging system either, I’m the blockchain or that directly corresponds to the blockchain that blows up at some points like the old Mission Impossible!       

This meant this message will self-destruct the next seconds and there you go...
