Sirin Labs, the maker of the US$16,000 Solarin Android smartphone, has unveiled its second line of devices named Finney. The Finney devices, named in homage to Bitcoin pioneer Hal Finney, will be designed from the ground up on an independent, fee-less blockchain specifically conceived to securely hold cryptographic coins and support crypto wallets, applications and shared resources.
The Finney line, which will originally comprise an open source, security-centric smartphone and an all-in-one PC, will utilize the core technology of the Solarin device but “re-engineered to the crypto crowd” to meet these users’ special needs.
“We’re paying close attention to the feedback we’ve received for Solarin, and while Solarin is still being sold and serviced, we decided to take the core offering and to wrap it with a new sleek design that’s a fraction of the cost, so it can serve the crypto community and their growing need for enhanced security,” said Moshe Hogeg, CEO and Founder of Sirin Labs.
The Finney devices will run on a Sirin Labs operating system Shield OS designed to support inherent blockchain applications, including a cryptocurrency wallet, three factors authentication, secure exchange access, encrypted communications, peer-to-peer resource sharing ecosystem, and an AppStore for decentralized applications provided in partnership with Status.im.
SIRIN LABS – the developer of SOLARIN, an ultra-secure mobile phone – is holding a crowdsale event. Funds raised will support the development of FINNEY™, the first open source blockchain smartphone and all-in-one PC.
The current generation of smart devices compromises on user security. The focus is overwhelmingly on user experience, at a huge cost in fraud and cybercrime. We believe the digital economy of the future cannot tolerate this trade-off: device architecture demands a paradigm shift that enables true security, while maintaining excellent user experience.
Finney Smartphone cyber-protected
FINNEY™ devices are the first cyber-protected, blockchain-enabled mobile phone and PC. They enjoy the functionality of Android™ OS, plus a suite of cyber security technologies, giving users safe, reliable access to the blockchain.
FINNEY™ devices form an independent blockchain network, a distributed ledger both scalable and lightweight, powered by IOTA’s Tangle technology and SIRIN LABS’ security ecosystem. FINNEY™ is free from centralized backbones and mining centers, capable of providing fast, fee-less and secure transactions.
FINNEY™ devices will run on SIRIN LABS’ open-source operating system, Shield OS™. This is designed to support inherent Blockchain applications, such as a crypto wallet, secure exchange access, encrypted communications, and a P2P resource sharing ecosystem for payment and apps, supported by the SRN token. The SRN is the FINNEY™ network’s default currency.
