The Status app is designed to protect private communications and allows full control over personal digital assets. Since the launch of v1 of Status in February, we have registered more than 50,000 installations, many of which come from regions looking for secure financial and communication tools. With Status, each person is the only one who can control their funds, and this is an exciting possibility for people in Argentina. We hope to convey to the Argentine community that financial autonomy is possible with the right tools. Our ultimate goal is the mass adoption of Status in a world where people control their money, not banks or third parties.
