StartApp launches blockchain platform for mobile apps
StartApp has unveiled Mobilechain, a blockchain platform for mobile apps. The company designed the solution with predeveloped blockchain technologies and features available through the SDK, according to a press release.
Mobile app developers can integrate cryptocurrency wallets and import smart contract templates for easier peer-to-peer transactions. They can also use Mobilechain Tokens to reward users who visit physical stores or create content, according to the release.
Customers can integrate all blockchain applications using the Mobilechain SDK, which helps to remove some of the complexity of using the blockchain, according to the release.
"We believe that for blockchain technology to be truly adopted by the masses, it needs to be brought into the mobile ecosystem," SmartApp CEO and co-founder Gil Dudkiewicz said in the release.
"Once a critical mass of early adopters — like app publishers and developers — implement the technology, mainstream consumers will follow, cementing blockchain as a viable mass market technology worldwide," he said. "With StartApp's expertise in mobile and our vast community of app developers, Mobilechain felt like a natural progression for us."
