After waiting for months, and one of the five largest ICOs in 2017, preceded, Sirin Labs on 29. November Finney on the market, the "world's first" Blockchain Smartphone. However, even with the support of the football legend Lionel Messi and a Token-sale in the amount equivalent to nearly 140 million Euro, is this 999-Dollar device is penetrated into a total new territory. The built-in Cold-Wallet and the DApp-Ecosystem are now in competition with the dominance of Apple and Samsung. And also the Exodus 1, another Blockchain Smartphone from HTC, is one of the party.features
The majority of the most important functions of Finney were already given before the Start on Thursday known: The Smartphone has a built-in Cold-Storage Wallet that is physically separated from the main hardware; Sirin OS is a "Google certified" Mod of the Android operating system; it has a AI-controlled, Cyber-threat detection; in addition, it allows the direct exchange of selected crypto-currencies (Ethereum, Bitcoin and Sirin Labs Token) without a centralized exchange.
But at the launch event in Barcelona, Sirin Labs has explained its goals and expectations Finney of concrete. They revealed that the Smartphone was only the beginning of their plans to bring Blockchain technology to mobile devices.
especially the Israeli company said at the launch event that Finney was a Smartphone, the power of the Blockchain technology for the mass more accessible and long-established crypto-enthusiasts, offer a practical way to keep your Coins safe and to manage.
"the main Computer of our Generation - the Smartphone."
"The Finney-phone offers everything from a single source," said Sirin Labs co-founder and Co-CEO Moshe Hogeg in his presentation. "In front of the Finney they needed a Ledger, a Computer, Wallet Software, then you had to go to a stock exchange, and only then could you exchange currencies. The Finney offers all-in-one Smartphone."
Finney offers a Cold-Storage Wallet, a Token exchange service, and crypto-exchanges-applications on a single device. Hogeg confirmed, Finney will make "a big step forward to close the gap between the Blockchain-business and the consumer market". So the crypto world is not to be made for a public accessible, necessarily have the time or desire to look at Kraken or Coinbase on its PCs, log in and then buy a Ledger or Trezor Wallet.

another and better predictability of the aspect in the Plan of Sirin Labs, a mass market lure, that Finney is equipped with all the technical Details and features expected from a Smartphone in the year 2018. The Smartphone has a 12-Megapixel rear camera, an 8 Megapixel Selfie camera, and a 6-inch touch screen, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of memory. So that it plays at least in the same League as the iPhone XS from this year. This also has a 12-Megapixel rear camera (dual camera), but actually a smaller, 5.5-inch screen, 4 GB of RAM and a 7-Megapixel-Selfie-camera.
The fact that it is in several aspects superior to, will make the Smartphone for people who may have been thinking about buying a separate Hardware-Wallet and an iPhone XS (or Samsung Galaxy S9). Also attracted to the lightness, with the most important features (the Hardware Wallet and the DApp-Store).
The transaction process is short and painless. To do this, you have to open the Wallet only physically (it is located on the upper side of the smartphone and can be pulled up and out) and a couple of times on the touch screen, as well as a couple of Times on the Display of the smartphone, tap to select (for example, the nature of the transaction). A nice Feature is that Finney allows the user to compare the addresses, and transaction amounts are displayed on the screen of the Wallet as well as on the Smartphone, simple as that. This is to ensure that at the end of the Coins goes to the wrong recipient, as in the case of Hacks or Bugs.
However, Sirin Labs with Finney, crypto wants to currencies in other Ways, more accessible and more popular. Initially, the company Lionel Messi already in 2017, has been brought in as a Finney-brand Ambassador on Board. The company hoped that "the greatest of all time" and "a Hacker in the camp," as Hills put it, would be the best Person to bring Finney and crypto - a mass market in a much better closer.
