Turn your smartphone into a blockchain powerhouse
Zipper is an Ethereum based mobile platform which brings blockchain based services to our smartphones in one seamless and user-controlled experience. At first, Zipper provides everyday smartphone users an easy and safe way to manage their identity and private keys. This makes it possible for anyone to access blockchain based services out-of-the-box in an easy and intuitive way - just like Apple’s services on iOS today - while being in full control of their identity, transactions and data. Zipper works in an isolated compartment in Android and Sailfish OS smartphones, making Zipper and its wallet secure while still easily accessible.
1. Painless private key handling
Paper wallets, scams, complex interfaces - the current private key experience is far from user friendly. Zipper’s decentralized key management solution, based on Shamir's Secret Sharing, turns user’s phone into an everyday hardware wallet. User can confirm transactions as easily as logging into her phone, while still in control of her private keys.
2. From siloed to seamless user experiences
There are already hundreds of dapps which each require separate tokens, wallets or identities. On Zipper, user can access decentralized services through one interface, identity and wallet. Token transactions between services happen seamlessly in the background.
3. Giving data control back to people
Building the decentralized world on top of the current data hungry mobile operating systems is like building your house on sand. Zipper does not collect user’s data without permission, and is fully separated from the smartphone’s OS. User has full control on what data to share and with whom, and even the option to monetize her data.
