While the core mobile application is no longer the sole focus of the Status Network, it is still integral to the Status mission of a decentralized web. Status is building not only a tool for private and secure communication, but a gateway into an emerging ecosystem of decentralized applications.
“After nearly a year of more quiet and focused development, we’ve restructured the core application, built out the promises of the white paper and prepared the app for a future in which the Status Network seeks to deliver on the promises of Ethereum at large.”
– The Status Team
The foundations of the core Status application are still tethered to the Ethereum network. Version 1 of Status launches with new SNT utility features; including a sticker marketplace and a decentralized DApp directory. Other white paper features, such as the fiat-to-crypto Teller Network and incentivized messaging with Tribute to Talk, are also moving forward.
