Status is an open source browser and messenger to access the Ethereum network and the world of decentralized applications that are built on top of it.
Ethereum is a computing platform that runs smart contracts, built on a blockchain. You can think of smart contracts as law for the internet, written in code. A blockchain is a distributed ledger that stores information that is free from censorship and can be accessed by anyone in the world. We believe it has the potential to shift civilization to a more secure internet.
At Status, we are on a mission to put the power of the Ethereum network and decentralized applications into the hands of the average smartphone user by creating a platform that is intuitive to use for new users out-of-the-box. With Status, anyone in the world with a smartphone can seamlessly interact with the Ethereum network. Status creates a clear path towards an internet where we can communicate and transact freely, own our own data, and control our own wealth.
