[PRESS RELEASE – London, UK, 7th June 2021]
London, UK, June 07 – Maiar, the blockchain app powered by the Elrond Network, has joined the Huawei Ecosystem and now is available on AppGallery, one of the top three app marketplaces globally.
With deep care for the user, elegant design, and an intuitive interface, Maiar enables any phone user to get a working blockchain wallet in seconds. Its intuitive simplicity allows everyone to store, earn and pay using cryptocurrencies.
“Blockchain technology will play an essential role in advancing the consumer internet, which needs to be mobile, personal, and secure.” said Siri Børsum, Global VP of Finance Vertical, Eco-development & Partnerships at Huawei Consumer Business Group. “Maiar’s debut in the AppGallery will empower our customers with an important tool that will help them take control of their financial health.”
Maiar seamlessly integrates with the mobile devices’ security capabilities to transform any Huawei smartphone into a biometrically secure hardware wallet. Through gamified progressive security, any Maiar user has their own private Swiss bank in their pockets.
The application is powered by the Elrond Network, the internet-scale blockchain that is capable of processing 15,000 transactions per second at negligible cost. It offers out-of-the-box support for EGLD, ETH, and BNB, with BTC, NFTs (non-fungible tokens) and other currencies to be added.
“Decentralization is about carving new paths and challenging the status quo using technological innovation,” said Beniamin Mincu, Elrond Network CEO. “The launch of Maiar in Huawei’s AppGallery gives us exposure to a huge new user base, which is essential for our mission to enable access to a high bandwidth and low latency global financial system for anyone, anywhere.”
Maiar is free and does not collect any personal data. Only a cryptographic hash of the phone number is used in the user onboarding process. In-app purchases of EGLD, ETH, and BNB are available, using credit cards or bank transfers. EGLD can further be staked to secure the Elrond blockchain and earn periodic rewards for this service.
