PopLocker — Latest Phase 1 Beta Release

Announcing the latest release of PopLocker.

This release is a fully featured and functioning Ethereum DApp browser and wallet — and an alternative to Metamask. Release notes and installation instructions are here.

Limitations

  • Connects to an Infura mainnet node — currently using a local node or test network requires rebuilding from source.
  • No backup or recovery of keys (but possible with Universal Logins — coming soon!) therefore if PopLocker is uninstalled (or your device is lost) you will lose access to your funds.
  • Not yet audited — deposit small funds only.
  • EIP-1102 not yet implemented — disable PopLocker when you want privacy.

All of these limitations will be addressed in future releases. However we would greatly appreciate beta testers installing and using this PopLocker release and giving us feedback. How close is PopLocker to achieving its aim of being an intuitive and mainstream-friendly DApp browser?

More information on the project roadmap and vision can be found here.

Phase 2 — Universal Logins and Meta Transactions

We are pleased to report that we are now in the later stages of Phase 2— we have a fully working demonstration and are well on the way to meeting the timescales of a May/June release.

More to come on this… but for now a sneaky preview:
