The partnership between Status and SIRIN LABS aims to speed the mass adoption of blockchain technology by offering the first holistic mobile experience.
December 2017 – Status, the first ever mobile Ethereum client built entirely on peer-to-peer technologies, is partnering with SIRIN LABS, the creator of the world’s most secure everyday blockchain phone, in order to bring the first complete blockchain mobile experience to the market next year. Status will come pre-installed in deep integration on FINNEY, the first open source, secure smartphone and all-in-one PC, that runs on a fee-less blockchain. This integration will allow the ability to use Finney and Status token in a seamless way.
Following the successful SNT token sale, raising more than $100M in ether in less than 24 hours, Status is currently in development. It is an open source mobile platform that serves as a gateway to decentralized apps (DApps) and services built on Ethereum. The base offering enables access to encrypted messages, smart contracts, digital currency, and more. Status will be pre-installed on FINNEY and the browser will provide access to a world of DApps. The integration of Status in the FINNEY family of devices offers a truly decentralized experience on the blockchain.
SIRIN LABS offering the only smartphone in the world that’s fully secure and safe enough to hold cryptographic coins, equipped with a cold storage crypto wallet. FINNEY devices will form an independent blockchain network, that is based on a distributed ledger that is scalable and lightweight, powered by IOTA’s Tangle technology. It will be free of centralized backbones or mining centers, and capable of providing fast, fee-less, and secure transactions.
”We have a commitment to the open source community to bring this technology to market,” said Carl Bennetts, Co-Founder of Status. “We will continue to partner with leaders in the space to drive the development of Ethereum-based innovation forward, and ensure it makes it to the smartphones of people around the world.”
“Our goal is to standardize blockchain technology while maintaining a simple and friendly user experience,” says Moshe Hogeg, Founder and CEO of SIRIN LABS. “Blockchain trade and cross platform experience is anything but seamless these days. Together with Status, and additional strategic partners, we will develop a secure open source OS to connect between tokens and allow those transitions to be completely seamless and feeless to the user, which will speed the mass adoption of the technology.”
