Today, we are very happy to share that the highly anticipated Bloom iPhone dapp is now LIVE in the App Store. (Click here to Download)
After more than a year of development and thousands of new users, the Bloom iOS app release marks a revolution in the way individuals control their data. For the first time, you have the power to decide exactly how your data is used, preventing predatory third parties from accessing your data and greatly reducing the risk of identity theft.
The release of the app is a huge milestone for the global identity ecosystem and the broader blockchain community. This streamlined experience allows users to interface with blockchain in an entirely novel way, one that does not require gas fees, MetaMask, or technical knowledge.
As we’ve advocated from the beginning, the success of blockchain product adoption will be highly dependent on fantastic user experiences. This means providing easy onboarding and clear actions. With mobile usage growing at a rapid rate, many prefer mobile as their primary device of choice. According to Statistica, 50.3% of all worldwide online traffic was generated through mobile phones in the last year.
The Miracle of Owning Your Own Data is Finally Here
Riddled with scams, dark markets, and illegal underground sources of data, identity breaches and fraud is climbing at alarming rates. In the US alone, more than 10,000 companies are pooling and selling your personal data — governments are struggling to curb the epidemic. While policies like GDPR attempt to mitigate the global data crisis, the problem is only getting worse.
Every moment, servers are logging, cataloging, and selling your personal, private information.
In the past, consumers had little recourse, calling central data collection firms a “necessary evil”, but with Bloom’s advancements and technical innovation, there is a new path.
The Bloom dapp gives you the power to take back their data. We give users the power to own their own data and decide how it’s used, how it’s sold.
- You own your data
- You control access to your data
- You decide when you share your data and who you share it with
We are building Bloom to bring credit to the modern age. Major Fortune 500 brands have already announced their intent to adopt Bloom’s technology.
