Status' goal is the mass-adoption of the best public Programmable Blockchain which, at the time of writing, is Ethereum.
If Ethereum is a World Computer, then Status aims to be an Operating System, or Window Manager. It is the visual expression of the Ethereum network, a user-friendly interface between people and machines alike, that lowers to nothing the technical barriers to joining, and participating on, Ethereum.
Status solves the problem of Discovery in decentralized networks - making it much easier for people and contracts to connect to the things that are useful and valuable to their particular needs and context.
We build networks where users truly own their own data. We build tools that preserve the human right to privacy. Tools that allow anyone to transact freely without middlemen, and ultimately take back control of their digital identity.
