Welcome to Status, yourgateway to the decentralized web.
As webecome more connected via technology, webecome part of a seemingly endlessnetwork of institutions and 3rd party services,claiming to make our lives easier.
These institutionsserve as a trusted middleman to help facilitateour transactions. While this maysound great, serious problemsexist.
We now have a fragmented system of identities andpasswords. We have placed far toomuch of our personal data in the hands of others and wehave given too much power to banks and legalsystems.
Luckily, there is another way.
Enterthe decentralized web on the Ethereum public blockchain.The blockchain is a decentralizeddatabase that stores a registry of assets,smart contracts and transactions across aglobally connected peer to peer network.
Ifused to its full potential, it will fundamentallychange our conception of how the internet,finance and law works. And it can completelyeliminate our reliance on trusted3rd parties.
It's not an app. It's not a company.It's not owned by anyone rather it'san open system owned byeveryone.
So how do we interact with the nextgeneration of the internet? How do we ensure itremains decentralized?
Just as browsers provide a gatewayto websites and institutions, Statusprovides a gateway to decentralized apps and services.More than an app, Status is a community,governed by its own users and givesaccess to a world free from controllinginterests and censorship. It works with a number ofdecentralized apps built on Ethereumto replace your wallet and bank, combining them with amessenger and browser.
Simply put, Statusis an open portal to the future web.
Meet Justin, Justin has recently movedfrom London to LA. It's a sunny morning andJustin is ready to get his day started.
He getsdressed, grabs his cell phone and hits the road,feeling empowered with the capabilities of Statusin his pocket.
First stop is the local coffeeshop. No wallet? No problem. Justin pays forhis coffee with Ether from his Statuswallet. And while waiting for his coffee,he checks his stock portfolio and sees gold is up big overnight. Time to cash out some of his holdings.
Justin opens up Status and trades a portion of his Digixgold tokens for a more stable currency.Not content with his gold earnings, he heads back to Statusand starts scanning Ethlance for work. He's a graphicdesigner and looking for a freelance gig.
Within seconds, he finds numerous companiesin his field looking for people just likehim.
He's in luck, he quickly finds a two weekfreelance gig for a local agency. They message back almostimmediately. He is perfect for the job,they just need some background information beforefinalizing the contract.
Via uPort, Justinshares the requested credentials to prove hisidentity. And Justin has now paid for coffee, conquered themarkets, and landed a job all while usingStatus.
He has done this freely withoutmiddlemen and on his own terms.
Statusmakes all of this possible in a simple and seamlessway.

Brave software is introducingan innovative solution,blockchain based digital advertising.
Online advertising was once simpler, it consistedof advertisers, publishers and users.
Digital advertising has evolvedinto an opaque and inefficient marketplace.Publishers, advertisers and users are all being conned bythis system. It's hard to believe but we are paying to bebothered by ads, our mobile phone billis going toward all the bandwidth spent on ads andtrackers. Up to $23 a month according to the New York Times.
Popularmedia sites we've seen have as manyas 70 trackers calling out using your battery, slowing down thepage load and increasing data costs.
Users are now trying to protect themselves with ad blockingwhich is on over 600,000,000 phones and desktops and rising.
So werealized something needed to be done. Wethink the solution must involve a decentralizeddigital ad exchange based on theblockchain.
Brave is implementing this in stages. Ourfirst stage is already in the Brave browser whichblocks ads and trackers but also have a ledger systemfor rewarding sites based on user attention.
The second phaseis when we try to move towards adecentralized ad exchange and that must involvea new kind of currency for user attention, and that's theBasic Attention Token.
The token is derivedfrom and therefore denominates user attention. Attentionis really just focused mental engagement on anadvertisement, great content, on whatever the useris looking at.
The browser can anonymouslyand privately monitor your attention as youview pages in tabs and it can do this in a way thatis highly accurate and highly private.
Wethink this is essential to avoiding fraudand malvertising problems on the current ecosystem.
Publishers will receive tokens when are viewed,users also get a share for their attention if they choose to receive ads.From that share they can then donate back to publishersthey wish to support.
We also see publishersbeing paid in tokens able to use those tokens toaward users to promote their content.
And if theylike, they can chargefor premium content that is paid in tokens.
BAT shouldbecome a new standard that is used in theentire advertising ecosystem. We believe that thiscombination of blockchain, smart contractbrowser analytics and accountable open sourcecode and auditability is the future of advertisingon the internet.
Argent is a gateway to the blockchain space,more specifically to ethereum.
We have solvedthe core security and usability issuesof blockchain for users by really movingsecurity and logic at the protocol layer.
WithArgent, you get the same experience as you are used to with yourbank. So imagine a bank that is fullydistributed, we don't hold your money, we don't hold yourassets. You are in control of your assets and youridentity but you don't need to backup a private keyon paper. You don't need to worry about someone stealing yourassets. The smart contract will protect them.
And we abstract complex concepts like transaction fees orgas fees in the ethereum space.
Here I've passed faceID, I'm now in Argent and it looks likea very sick wallet with all my assets. But what's uniqueis the private key on the phone doesn't hold anyassets. It's really just a remote control toyour smart contract that is in the blockchain with yourassets. It's your smart contract, you controlit.
Here for example I'll send a fewDAI. I pick afriend, let's say I send 2 DAI andthat's literally easier than with your typical bankingapp. You don't have to worry aboutfees as Argent takes care of all ofthat complexity.
So what you will see in the comingmonths is the launch of decentralizedfinance service where the wallet will take care of all of thecomplexity and on your phone in one tap you'll beable to open a secured loanwith Maker or earn interestwith Compound.
That's something where a smart walletcan do in an elegant way.
With Argent, we useAWS to get the same benefits. It'sa small team, you can build reallypowerful platforms.
We use many of the typicalservices from [inaudible]with [inaudible] currently.
Then AWSalso offers very specific services that weneed. For example, KMS is a very important componentfor us. It allowed us to save a lot of timeto access [inaudible] infrastructure.
Sowhile we don't hold assets of users, we still interact with the blockchain.So we still need it to be able to hold privatekeys, sign with these private keys forvarious services and KMS makes thatvery easy and very fast to develop.

Blockchain is a new kind oftechnology that's quietly changing thearchitecture of networks, financial systems andeveryone's daily lives.
However usability,scalability and privacy are still major obstaclesto overcome before blockchain applications, knownas dApps become common place.
The early advocatesin the industry are focusing on the publicchain itself and working to improve usability, scalabilityand privacy at the platform but are limitedby the trilemma of security, decentralization andscalability.
That's why wecreated AlphaWallet.
To start,from the applicationlayer. AlphaWallet aims to reduce dApps dependence and consumptionof public chain resources through layer twooff chain solutions.
AlphaWallet protocols are a bridgebetween public chains and dApps and make itpossible to convert values into blockchaintokens that can be stored and used in the AlphaWallet mobile platform.
These tokens hold values and functions and byallowing them to integrate with services and applications on theuser side, it opens up the market tofree and fair competition.
AlphaWallet was designed tooptimize blockchain applications by moving asmuch logic as possible off chain while still providing all of the benefitsof using the public chain.
The key to achieving this isrefine the common logic into cryptographic protocols anduse AlphaWallet's mobile platform and protocols toconnect dApps and public chains.
As a result, complex logic andprivate information are processed locally in AlphaWalletand only the necessary validationlogic is uploaded to the public chain.
Therefore applicationscan enhance privacy protection and scalability while at the sametime improve operating efficiency of the publicchain exponentially.
Regardless of how the public chaindevelops, AlphaWallet can optimize it from theapplication side, effectively solving the three major problems ofprivacy, scalability and usability.
Howeverthis is just the beginning. AlphaWallethas laid the foundation and will continue totake major steps to help create a moreopen and fairworld.

Hello I'm Rohan, co-founder of Cypherock and we are based out of NewDelhi India.
We at Cyperock are building the world'sfirst [inaudible] for pneumonicphrases to secure them for decades.
We believe that the current wallet infrastructureis completely broken. Becauseon one hand you have your hardware walletsprotecting your private keys in tamper proof hardwarebut on the other hand you are basically exposing themall on a piece of paper through your 24 pneumonic phrases.
So it opens up to much problemssuch as single point of failure, hacks, thefts,and damages.
We completely want to replacethat process of writing it on a piece ofpaper to something which is more tamper proof.Something that is more reliable. Something which adds to the peace ofmind and confidence into the users holding their owncrypto just like they have theconfidence in the banks with their savings.
Since we are building a hardwareproduct, we knew that we need a solution andConsenSys is a big name in the industry.So we thought we'll get great feedback here.
What ConsenSysand the whole ecosystem around ethereum really brings us is thewhole mesh network of companies that are buildingon the decentralized technologies.And we just wanted to leverage that to have theearly adopters for our products.
It's so encouragingto see people building on the decentralizedtechnologies of tomorrow.
It has been a roller coasterfor us. We have almost 300 on ourwait list rightnow and we have iterated over 2prototypes in 8 weeks.
That's kind of the acceleration wewere expecting and also wegot out of the program.
The most important partwhich was helpful was we found outwhich features should be added into the product. Orwhich features shouldn't be added right now.
Wegot great feedback on that. And we areiterating.
What we have right now is the huge network ofcompanies that could really push us for the next18 months. Andwe are aiming to sell about 100,000 units in the next 18months of our operations.
