Status is a mini-OS to interface with the emerging Ethereum ÐApp ecosystem. Built on top of Ethereum service layers and protocols, Status is an open source project that combines a messenger with a decentralised applications browser that will bridge the gap between ÐApp Developers and the Mass Market.
Status is an open source messaging platform and mobile interface to interact with decentralized applications that run on the Ethereum Network. The messenger form-factor is chosen to make Ethereum feel as familiar as possible to the average smartphone user, while providing a flexible platform for DApp developers, aimed to maximise the amount of daily use of Ethereum’s public blockchain. The Status Network token is a modular utility token that fuels the Status network. This includes a Decentralized Push Notification Market, Governance of the Status client, Community Curation of content, along with social communication tools such as Tribute to Talk. We also propose a fiat-to-crypto 'Teller Network', DApp Directory, Sticker Market, and demonstrate our research on a User Acquisition Engine to grow the Network.
