Status, your gateway to Ethereum

00:00 Welcome to status, your gateway to the decentralized web.
00:02 As we become more connected via technology, we become part of a seemingly endless network of institutions and third party services, claiming to make our lives easier.
00:13 These institutions serve as a trusted middleman to help facilitate our transactions.
00:20 While this may sound great, serious problems exist.
00:23 We now have a fragmented system of identities and passwords.
00:28 We have placed far too much of our personal data in the hands of others and we have given too much power to banks and legal systems.
00:36 Luckily, there is another way.
00:39 Enter the decentralized web and the Ethereum public blockchain.
00:42 The blockchain is a decentralized database that stores a registry of assets, smart contracts and transactions across a globally connected peer-to-peer network.
00:52 If used to its full potential, it will fundamentally change our conception of how these internet, finance and law works, and it can completely eliminate our reliance on trusted third parties.
01:06 It's not an app, it's not a company, it's not owned by anyone, rather, it's an open system owned by everyone.
01:14 So how do we interact with the next generation of the Internet? how do we ensure it remains decentralized?
01:22 Introducing status, just as browsers provide a gateway to websites and institutions, status provides a gateway to decentralized apps and services more.
01:34 Than an app, status is a community governed by its own user and gives access to a world free from controlling interests and censorship.
01:42 It works with a number of decentralized apps built on Ethereum, to replace your wallet and Bank, combining them with a messengers and browser.
01:52 Simply put, status is an open portal to the Future web.
01:58 Meet Justin, Justin has recently moved from London to LA, it's a sunny morning and justin is ready to get his day started.
02:06 He gets dressed, grasped his cell phone and hits the road, feeling empowered with the capabilities of status in his pocket.
02:13 First stop is the local coffee shop.
02:16 No wallet, no problem.
02:16 Justin pay for his coffee with ether from his status wallet.
02:21 While waiting for his coffee, he checks his stock portfolio and Justin gold is up big overnight.
02:25 Cashing, time to cash out some of his holdings.
02:31 Justin opens up Status and trades a portion of his digits gold tokens for a more stable currency.
02:35 Not content with his gold earnings, he heads back to status and start scanning eth lands for some work.
02:42 He is a graphic designer and looking for a freelance gig.
02:44 Within seconds, he finds numerous companies in his field looking for people just like him.
02:52 He is in luck, he quickly finds a two-week freelance gig for a local agency, they message back almost immediately, he is perfect for the job, they just need some background information before finalizing the contract.
03:05 Via uport, justin shares the requested credentials to prove his identity.
03:08 Justin has now paid her coffee, conquered the markets and landed a job all while using status.
03:16 He has done this freely without middlemen and on his own terms.
03:18 Status makes all of this possible in a simple and seamless way.
03:23 Join status now and become part of the decentralized web.

devcon2: Status, an Ethereum light client for Android & iOS

00:00 Hi my name is Jared, I've been active community member in Ethereum since like 2014.
00:06 My background is actually in software distribution.
00:09 Here I'm today to talk to you about integrating Ethereum into our daily lives using status, Ethereum light client developed for Android and iOS.
00:20 But before I do, I kind of want to talk about my personal motivations and why I believe in Ethereum.
00:31 See in recent history, like you can see many cases of like economic collapse, institutional failures and large populations of people who have no access to dependable legal technologies.
00:45 And of course these are complex problems, but I believe they stem from our inability for us to adapt socially fast enough.
00:56 But what if we could create digital spaces and where we can experiment with new ideas, new economic models, new policies and new ways are socially organizing.
01:09 Social systems as operational closures in which we have unprecedented access to the entire economies history down to the very transaction level and the social contracts that bind them.
01:23 What if we can then use this data to discover something new and then deploy it globally within 30 seconds or less for anyone to use voluntarily, that's the kind of world that I want to live in.
01:36 But none of that's really possible until we start getting Ethereum into the hands of people.
01:40 Show of hands who has a smartphone with them right now.
01:44 There's more than more than that.
01:48 Now keep your hand up if you don't have your laptop with you right now, right.
01:54 So smartphones and now the new personal computer.
02:00 In 2014 they've overtaken desktops in users and now we're seeing that more time is being spent on them and on desktops.
02:09 I'll do this information, we decided to bring Ethereum to Android and iOS last year, with a higher end goal of recreating the mist dapp browser experience on mobile devices.
02:21 But as we were developing, I started looking at my own behaviors and how I was using my own smartphone, and I realized I wasn't really browsing the web except for when I was at restaurants or I was at home sitting down with Wi-Fi.
02:36 And to be honest, the web is a little tedious.
02:39 So there got me wondering, how are other people using their smartphones.
02:44 It turns out that we are social creatures and we love instant messaging and social networks.
02:54 In fact, I have compared to browsers, instant messengers have three times the amount of monthly active users and a third of all time spent on smartphones is actually inside an instant messenger.
03:06 It seems to me, if we want to create the biggest surface area possible for accessibility, this is a really good candidate.
03:17 But then I started wonder, what would Ethereum look like as an instant messenger, how can we keep its generality, how can we maintain decentralization, and what would dapp ecosystem look like in the context of chat, how we humanize the protocol turning addresses into faces.
03:40 Under the hood, status actually runs a full implementation of Go ethereum, with the light client and whisperer protocols enabled.
03:49 On top of whisper, we build our instant messenger and we actually do our own key management and transaction management.
03:56 To dapps, it all looks pretty much the same, they still have access to web 3 and a local JSON RPC server, and we also introduce a new kind of extensibility to dapps which is more integrated with chat and can render with us with a subset of react native and I'll get into those in a moment.
04:18 So when you first run status, you meet your first autonomous entity, console.
04:24 Console is there really to help you with onboarding, to educate you on how to use the basic features of status, it also is also there to set up your first account.
04:38 So here you can see our request message and it's asking us to tap on it, so let's do that.
04:44 Here the request is asking us to set up a password, so let's type it in, and to confirm.
04:56 Now a message is sent and status has generated a master key based and given us our passphrase.
05:08 Now we also have the passphrase in multiple languages including Mandarin.
05:12 With this master key, we derived two child keys, our main account and the sub-account root.
05:17 With the main account, we actually do something a little interesting and something you're not really supposed to do with whisper.
05:24 We actually inject the keeper directly into whisper.
05:27 This gives us an interesting property and not only you can transact with that public key, but you can also chat with it, this becomes your handle in status.
05:36 Of course there is a trade off with address hash security.
05:43 So we'll probably end up doing some automated management with any funds that are in that into a sub account.
05:48 In status, DApps are first-class citizens, that means they look and feel just like your friends.
05:56 At the top here, we have our default DApp wallet and let's say a tap on in and have a look.
06:05 Wallet is a HTML and JavaScript dapp, just like what you would find in mist or meta mask and it pretty much all of those would work the same within status.
06:15 This is actually rendered with a special built-in command that turns the text input field into something like an address bar and it renders a webview in the suggestions area, I'll talk a bit about that in a minute.
06:31 Underneath the suggestions area, we have a chat history and this can be used for that transaction log and can even be used as a support channel if the DApp developer wants to talk to you.
06:43 Chat DApps integrate with status a little more closely.
06:51 Using a chat API, they can create new commands and new message types.
06:56 Here we have an example with example DApps and here they've sent us a request message and just like console did and we'll get to that in a moment.
07:08 But in the bottom left next to type, there is a command this icon.
07:13 You'll notice that has a little blue dot on it indicating that there is a pending request somewhere in the chat history.
07:20 So when you want commands, you can either start typing directly here with an exclamation mark or you can type on the command list icon.
07:27 Once here, the suggestions area is populated with all our commands and requests that are available within the context.
07:37 Here we have one pending requests and two commands.
07:39 Now we can either type start typing in the command that we want and filtering down the search or we can tap directly on it.
07:45 So now we've typed in sent and we're on our first parameter.
07:54 A command is instantiated using status command, it is passed to an object with multiple properties, the most noteworthy of the parameters and three handlers preview hand learned validator.
08:05 Now we are on our first parameter too, and you can see that it is the type contact and the default value is the first participant with in the chat context.
08:16 We can either type in the name or we can just press tap on the example DApp.
08:22 Every time we interact with the parameter, the validator function is called and it can either inform status to move on to the next parameter or it can return a subset of react native to render some custom user interface within the suggestions area, so we'll do that.
08:41 Now we're on the second parameter from, and this is using context self as the default value which is us, so we'll just do that.
08:49 And here is the third one amount, the code is emitted because they couldn't fit on the screen.
08:55 But notice how this the type is number, so it changes the keyboard and in this case the validator has returned some custom user interface which is a slider in this case.
09:06 Now we've filled out all our parameters, we can hit Send.
09:11 Once this has happened, the message actually goes into a staging area.
09:16 The preview handler is called and the preview handler defines and what the the chat message is going to look like.
09:22 Now when we press send after the user is reviewed it, we're going to call the method of the commands handler function and this is where the meter the the commander actually happens.
09:33 In our case, we're going to end up calling web 3 send transaction, let's see what happens.
09:41 Oh state change, any send transaction request is intercepted by status and is put into a transaction queue for the user to to review.
09:53 It is represented visually by a list of horizontal scrolling cards.
10:00 The user can the either confirm or deny the transactions and remember certain types.
10:04 Now I want to talk about requests and responses.
10:13 They allow us to daisy-chain commands and even pre-fill parameters for per hour to friends to fill out commands as well.
10:20 They allow us to have more rich in our interactions and more meaningful conversations.
10:26 You can imagine in the future, we're going to have multiple DApp being used in modular fashion and they can be daisy chained together.
10:32 In this case, example that would have ran a command whereis which would have made a status request for our response and the target is the first parameter.
10:46 So we tapped on that message that was pending in the request message and noticed how in the suggestions area, the header has changed, indicating what type of request it is, who was by and when.
11:04 It's given the given us one parameter which is our address and now we're it's in the staging error like before.
11:16 Responses, I have the same object structure as commands, they are just instantiated with status to response, so less than them.
11:27 In status, Dapps can be added into group chats.
11:38 This cause a mild dilemma and that's with Dapps, the codes are executed on each participant's device.
11:46 That means we need to enable permissions for each command for everyone to use it within the chat context.
11:53 This is as simple as going to the DApps profile and tapping on the commands.
11:58 Another core feature of status is called discover and allows you to advertise your goods and services, find DApps and other participants by hashtags.
12:13 So let's make ourselves discoverable.
12:17 Change my name and I'll add in status.
12:20 When my status has hashtags in it, it is published to a public topic and all my friends who are monitoring me, they can see this.
12:34 On the discover screen at the top, we have a series of cards which demonstrate the most popular tags in the information you have available.
12:44 Below it we have a live stream of recent statuses coming in.
12:49 This information is disseminated using a package which is created from the list of statuses from your friends and also an aggregate of packages that you've received from your other friends.
13:02 It's weighted by a number of factors whether online, how recent the status is, if you've seen it amongst multiple peers and if you've actually opened a chat history with it.
13:11 There's a couple other extensions to the chat API, such as like a QR generator and scanning and contact menu creation, which we're going to.
13:23 We're also multi-account ready, so for shared devices and DApps developers with multiple accounts or just to log out of the app.
13:31 Everything I've described today, we are featured complete, it's a bit rough around the edges, but it's all there, and we are now moving into a testing phase and we should hopefully have a binary by the end of the year.
13:46 We are open source as of today, we're under MP L sue and that's our technology stack.
13:55 So if you're a closure script developer, I would love to chat with you.
13:59 There's a developer guide that just guides you through the whole process, it's pretty pretty painless.
14:03 Also stay tuned, we're working on a github issue, bounty BOTS where you can assign bounties to github issues and then they can be paid out to contributors on successful pull requests.
14:16 The current implementation is a little naive, so yeah where we give us it like a month or two on that one.
14:23 Yeah and thank you so much, I hope everyone's using status by DEFCON 3.
