Zipper works in an isolated compartment in Android and Sailfish OS smartphones, making Zipper and its wallet secure while still easily accessible

Marc Dillon showing up like an ex who's left something at your house.

Hi, yeah, yeah, I know we haven't spoken in a while, how's that project of yours going? Great, great, cool. Look, I got bored of making chargers now I'm doing something with the buzzword of the day and I was wondering, could I tangentially strap myself to your project for little discernible reason? Yeah, I'll buy and give away some of ... what were you doing ... phones yeah right, those phone things you do, sure sure. I'll bundle my app on them and everything. Hey look maybe you could help me finish the app too actually, I know you love doing that? You still really have a special place in my heart (and on my ear), you'd do that for me wouldn't you? No no it won't take any time away from you staying afloat or relevant or ANYTHING like that. And you'll totally be my primary platform, the huge Android addressable market hasn't distracted me at all, I still only have eyes for you. So you'll send out the press releases and do some free work for me? Great great. SO COOL to see you again, look, sorry, but I got to run, BYE.

Watchmaker has it exactly right above in comment #9.

This is about making blockchain and cryptocurrency easy and straightforward.

It's about (in the future) 5 USD up front devices that provide a out-of-box experience for this.

It's not about pointing pointless crap at people - by far.

So, what does you app do now? I'm pretty sure SFOS handles my identities and private keys very well with the default unix-based tools, thank you very much.

Which "blockchain based services" should I be able to access now? And which benifits do they bring over conventional services, already available today?
I'm sorry but this sounds like another ******** bingo project which only exists because most of the people do not seem to understand the concept behind blockchain-based crypto currencies. The only advantage of crypto currencies like BTC, being able to pay anonymously is long clouded by the many disadvantages like high-risk, unstable prices, transaction fees making daily useage unfeasible and shitty wallet services / softwares losing the funds of their users all the time.
Sure, there are some interesting approaches for the blockchain idea in science, but there still does not exist a single idea for a legit, everyday service based on this technology which convinces me. Instead, this feels more and more like a scam, like its "Dot Com" all over again.

But here is your chance to convince me.

I would only consider a FOSS cryptocurrency app where I could and HAD reviewed the code for phone home of my wallet details as otherwise I would suspect the app of being able to 'rob' me at any time by on command, time delayed, or randomly execute a transfer of my cryptocurrency to a wallet accessible to the devs. Remember that there are no take-backs or appeals with a transfer, it is P2P.
I also want to state for those who have been fed misinformation, the way blockchain works it is even less annon than transferring money bybank transfer, paypal, or or credit card; essentially it is like cash where every transaction and holder is indelibly recorded on the banknote/bill, announced over the radio, and recorded in a public almanac.
I would not be surprised to find that blockchain based pseudocurrencies were designed by an American three letter police or intelligence agency to have a way to track the flow of black money even when transfers were done offline.

It is not just about cryptocurrency: Resolving public key distribution dilemma is much more interesting thing.

Seriously guys? Let me help you:

- App running in fullscreen (no notification bar or nav icons);

- Sailfish X default wallpaper visible in the background (~1min mark);

- Sailfish OS default fonts and Silica elements all around (TextField @ 53s).

Whenever I hear the world blockchain I reach for my bucket...
Best of luck, not interested.

You must feel nauseated all the time then. I guess that condition can only get worse. XD
