Sirin Labs Joins Hands With Ethereum: Bids Farewell to IOTA
As per the CEO of Sirin Labs, Moshe Hogeg, Sirin labs will be giving nodes that their new phone ‘Finney’ will use.
Nimrod May, the Chief Marketing Officer of Sirin Labs confirmed with the CEO stating that they will be utilizing the Ethereum blockchain at the launching stage. They will not use the main chain but will use the private chain.
Furthermore, he added:
“Our plan since the release of our whitepaper has always been to migrate the SRN token and Sirin Labs ecosystem to a next-generation blockchain.”
Nimord Mentioned that they thought of considering both Cardano as well as IOTA but neither had the blockchain technology that they wanted.
The latest project ‘Finney” includes a smartphone and a computer that will operate on a public operating system called Sirin OS. The designing of the operating system was done in a manner that it will possess all applications of blockchain including wallets, secure exchange access, encrypted communications and a user-to-user ecosystem for purchasing and applications backed by the Labs’ SRN token.
So far no exact date of releasing ‘Finney’ is given by them. However, it was stated that the launch will take place somewhere in November end and will be available for purchase right after that.
