We’d like to start off this month’s Progress Report by wishing our entire community and their families good luck, and good health during the global Covid-19 pandemic. During extraordinary times like this it’s important to hold together and keep spirits high. 

Working remotely as always, SelfKey continues to push on both the Desktop and Mobile Wallets. The community remains a critical part of any potential SelfKey success. Community efforts are valued, important, and fundamental to moving the project forwards.

The SelfKey Mobile Wallet launches!

On the 10th of March the SelfKey Mobile Wallet launched for both iOS and Android devices. Hundreds of you are already using it and we’re very grateful for the feedback we’ve received.
