Status - a Mobile Ethereum OS

Status is a free (libre) 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 we are building a gateway for everyday smartphone users to begin using DApps, and a simple way for DApp developers to reach new users.

Status runs go-ethereum directly from your mobile device, providing a mobile Ethereum node in your pocket!

We've love for you to join our community, and be a part of this exciting journey.

Getting started with Status

Why?

We believe in a medium of pure free trade, economies with fair, permissionless access and a world without intermediaries. We want to create policies that can exist between friends or scale globally, and the ability to communicate securely without being inhibited by legacy systems.

We want to take control of our digital lives, and take responsibility for our own data, the way we conduct ourselves privately and promote this way of life to a mass audience.

We want deep insights into our own economies so we can make informed, data-driven decisions on how to make our lives better. The Ethereum blockchain, Smart Contracts, Swarm and Whisper provides us with a clear path forward.

If this interests you, help us make Status a reality - anyone can contribute and we need everyone at any skill level to participate.

Currently the fastest way to get your hands on a binary is to join our Early Access by submitting your email on our Home Page, or by building it yourself. We'll be continually rolling out new invites for early supporters of the project, before a public-release once Status is in a more stable state.
