Status is an open source messaging platform and mobile browser to interact with decentralized applications that run on the Ethereum Network. With Status your mobile device becomes a light client node on the Ethereum Network, enabling you to access Ethereum’s entire ecosystem from anywhere. Find DApps and other Status users through the Discover feature. Exchange currency, services, and ideas - helping to grow the movement for decentralization. Status is more than a messenger. Send payments and smart contracts to friends from within chats, and enjoy encrypted messaging by default, using a peer-to-peer protocol that doesn’t rely on centralized servers. Status is built together with its users. We’re completely open source and anyone is free to contribute. Together, we're shaping the future of Status and creating a new type of network governed by its own users.
Status is a free and open source mobile client targeting Android & iOS built, entirely on Ethereum technologies. Thanks to the new protocols Ethereum has introduced, there's a whole new ecosystem of applications being developed that are completely decentralised (also known as DApps), and Status aims to provide a user interface to access them. These decentralized applications remove the need for middlemen and centralised servers, providing a clear path forward towards an internet where users get to own their own data, and an economy built on permissionless, open protocols. It is our belief that messengers are evolving into a new type of OS, and are becoming gateways to our economies and social lives. Status uses messaging as a platform, and by combining both a messenger and a browser they are building a gateway for everyday smartphone users to begin using DApps, and a simple way for DApp developers to reach new users.
