How Status Works
Status is moving forward with a view to changing the traditional outfit of the familiar social media platforms. According to the orthodox ideology, the whole clan is fractioned into the subgroups such as owners, advertisers, and users.
The conventional system allows the executing body and the advertisers to have control over the flow of information, whereas; the users who are handing their personal details over are being awarded a small portion of the authority of the entire platform.
The prevailing system lets them say a very little when it comes to the point of the renovation of the platform. But Status assures to divide the pie rationally among different communities.
The project has come out of the box and has empowered the users accordingly, forgetting about the prevailing social network infrastructure. Users become a part of the network when they issue Status Network Token, SNT in short. The motion of the network is set towards the benefit of the users. They are in the driving seat of what they share and have the right to vote on the proposals related to the modification of the system.
The Status Network Token
SNT acts as the fuel of the network in motion. Users will have to count STN in case of using definite features of the Status Mobile Ethereum Client. Other features than those are completely free to use and interact with.
Status operating system identifies the users by tracing SECP256k1 public key. It allows the participants to have usernames only when they possess SNT; and has a plan to provide badges to the trustworthy accounts that will point towards the condition of the account regarding the number of reserved tokens and so on.
