Every month we provide a detailed Voyage Report designed to show our community what we’ve been working on and how important projects are developing. February was an incredibly productive month for the SelfKey team, as our R&D finished a vital paper outlining the future vision of our project, and the quality assurance team began intensive testing of the upcoming Mobile Wallet. Let’s dive in!

Take your tokens anywhere - The SelfKey Mobile Wallet

Over the last few months the SelfKey product and development teams have been working tirelessly to build and launch the SelfKey Mobile Wallet. In its first iteration the Wallet will focus on transactions and token management. 

Just like the Desktop Wallet, you will be able to send and receive ERC20 tokens, including KEY and any custom tokens using this standard. The dashboard will provide an easy overview of your entire token portfolio allowing you to quickly ascertain its constellation and value.

As the Mobile Wallet matures we aim to add additional functionality, enabling users to manage not only their tokens but also their identity documents as well access the Marketplaces. 

Naturally you will be able to import your Desktop Wallet onto your mobile device, so you can manage your tokens on from anywhere.

R&D Update

In our Newsletters we often talk about the product and development teams at SelfKey. In the background however, we also have an R&D team which works tirelessly to identify meaningful innovations and harness them for the good of our community. It is thanks to their work for example, that SelfKey became one of the first organizations to have its own DID method

With the new decade upon us the R&D team has put together a detailed paper updating parts of the original whitepaper and laying out our vision for the future. 

Coming in at over 30 pages, we will be initially releasing it chapter by chapter on the blog, and will subsequently make the paper available for download as a PDF later.

This update is the culmination of countless hours of work from the R&D team and we're delighted to be able to offer you - our community - more transparency as to the potential and vision of SelfKey.

The first chapter, which is already available on the blog, provides a great overview of identity management in 2020. Future updates will cover our vision for the Corporate Wallet, dispute resolutions and even a verifiable data marketplace - among other fascinating topics.

As part of the SelfKey community we would be delighted to get your feedback via Twitter and Telegram, and of course you can add your own ideas in our designated ideas portal.
