Status will foster the public Ethereum blockchain by joining the EEA, the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative
ZUG, Switzerland, December 4, 2017 – Status, the first ever mobile Ethereum client built entirely on peer-to-peer technologies, is announcing that it has joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative. With membership across the Fortune 500, enterprises, startups, research facilities, and even governments, the EEA’s mission is to enhance the privacy, security, and scalability of Ethereum-based blockchain technologies.
Following a successful token sale of SNT raising more than $100M in ether in less than 24 hours, Status is currently in development. Status 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.
The early-stage startup is a passionate open-source project committed to the public blockchain. Status’ goal is to partner across the EEA membership roster to ensure the promise of Ethereum is tangible for billions of people. Playing a leading role in improving the user experience to interact with Ethereum, Status will cultivate relationships and leverage resources that drive the development of open-source standards for the public Ethereum blockchain.
Alongside leading global enterprises and startups in the EEA, Status will help to drive a clear roadmap, robust governance model, and useful Ethereum resources. As participation continues to grow, Status involvement in the EEA is an important strategic initiative that will support the decentralization movement and the shared vision of a world where blockchain-based technology is in the hands and smartphones of people around the world on a massive scale.
“Status is committed to decentralization and joining the EEA is a unique opportunity to help traditional enterprises that are often challenged by a deep legacy of investment in centralized systems,” said Carl Bennetts, Status Co-Founder. “We hope our combined efforts with all of the EEA organizations will quicken the pace of development and new tech adoption to make Ethereum accessible for all.”
The team recently announced a new COO from Google, development of Status Hardwallet for wireless transactions using NFC, and Status Open Bounty, a new open bounty fund. Pledging a commitment of $1M to aid open source projects, Status is already bringing together developers and organizations, demonstrating commitment to open source.
