Blockchain Smartphone Maker Sirin Labs Integrates With Crypto Wallet MyEtherWallet

News | March 21, 2019 By:

Switzerland-based smartphone maker Sirin Labs has partnered with MyEtherWallet (MEW), an open-source, client-side interface for generating crypto wallets.

Sirin Labs, which raised over $157 million in its initial coin offering (ICO) in 2017, is the creator of Finney, “an open source, ultra-secure blockchain smartphone with an embedded cold storage crypto wallet.” The $999 Finney smartphone, which is based on both Android and Sirin’s open-source operating system SIRIN OS, opened for pre-orders in November 2018 and was officially rolled out in January.

MEW claims to be the world’s original ethereum wallet interface, which is free, open source, and secure. MEW empowers its users to interact directly with the blockchain while remaining in full control of their keys and funds.

The partnership will see the two companies integrate their solutions in order to make crypto usage more accessible and user-friendly and encourage mainstream adoption. MEW will feature Finney as a hardware wallet, and the MEW community can purchase Finney using MEW through the MEW mobile and web platforms. Sirin Labs will allow all MEW users to enjoy the SIRIN OS cold storage wallet.

“The Finney experience is constantly evolving and improving, thanks to our honored partners,” said Zvika Landau, CEO of Sirin Labs. “We see this integration as a strong step towards a greater market share for both companies, as the two products complement each other.”

“We’re always looking to bring more secure integrations to ethereum to make our users feel safe while navigating the crypto waters, and we believe having an on-phone hardware wallet is immensely valuable to users,” says Kosala Hemachandra, Founder and CEO of MEW. “This will not only make it easy to send and receive crypto transactions, but it will also make crypto more accessible to a wide range of users.”
