Last week we announced and deployed our new version of the dApp code named Omura. So far we’ve had more than 100 loan requests since the release.
Over 3 500 ETH in Decentralized Loans
We have now gone through statistics on the old smart contract which was deployed from December 15th to February 8th 14:00 GMT and our decentralized lending application reached over 3,500 ETH in lending volume over that period. We managed to reach 1,000 ETH in the first four weeks since Alpha 0.2.0 release and the lending volume then rose to 2,500 ETH for a month since then totaling at 3,500 ETH for 8 weeks the version was live despite Ethereum network congestion during January.

Double Lender Bug Refund
On the Alpha 0.2.0 version we came across bug where if two lenders tried to fund a loan at same time the first one to get his transaction through would become the lender and the second one would be counted as first installment of the loan and then receive only part of his ETH, which he tried to fund the loan with back. We’ve called this “double lender” issue and we’ve now went through almost all known cases of this bug and refunded everyone fully for their ETH.
Another bug we and many of our users came across during Alpha 0.2.0 was with user interface where days left to pay timer reverted back to zero even if there was still time left for borrower to pay back the loan. This bug a nuisance but less significant since the smart contract maintained the agreed terms when loan was funded.

Tokyo, February 14th, 2018 – Emurgo (Shibuya, Tokyo, CEO Ken Kodama), announces that Emurgo has a strategic partnership with SIRIN LABS, a pioneer in secure open source consumer electronics, as a part of its global strategy in developing and expanding the ecosystem of Cardano’s blockchain. Cardano’s native token (ADA) will be supported in the world’s first blockchain smartphone, the FINNEY™, which SIRIN LABS is currently developing.
SIRIN LABS, which successfully completed the fourth largest crowdsale in history, raising $157.8 million for the development of the blockchain-based FINNEY™ family of devices which will include an all-in-one PC and the FINNEY smartphone, the the world’s most secure blockchain smartphone. The FINNEYTM is scheduled to launch globally in the second half of 2018.
FINNEYTM will support ADA token
The FINNEYTM smartphone’s cold-storage wallet, which provides seamless user experience for exchanging tokens, and is developed using the blockchain-enabled and proprietary SIRIN OS, will support Cardano’s native token, ADA. Users will be able to use the ADA token as a choice of payment within the DApp store which will come pre-installed on the device.
Partnership in research and development
Emurgo will aid the SIRIN LABS R&D team to integrate the FINNEYTM smartphone with the Cardano protocol, which is currently developed by Input Output HK, a global blockchain engineering company.
Moshe Hogeg, CEO of SIRIN LABS said:
“We are incredibly excited to be able to work with Emurgo on implementing the Cardano protocol into SIRIN OS and our upcoming FINNEYTM family of devices. The availability of the ADA token will undoubtedly enhance the user experience and utility of the FINNEYTMsmartphone, to both crypto enthusiasts and mainstream users.”
Ken Kodama, CEO of Emurgo said
“It’s very exciting that we can work with SIRIN LABS to expand the blockchain industry. Also, it’s great news for the Cardano community that such an innovative smartphone will support ADA.”
