Toshi is an open source browser for the Ethereum network. Our mission is to provide universal access to financial services.
We believe that controlling your own wealth is a basic human right, and that everyone on the planet should have access to financial services. Financial inclusion will level the playing field and lift millions out of poverty.
We believe digital currency has the power to bring about more innovation, economic freedom, and equality of opportunity in the world. An open financial system will empower people.
We would like to make digital currency accessible to everyone, and to dramatically lower the barrier for new digital currency apps to be created.
Toshi is built like a web browser (we don't host any of the apps or have access to customer funds). It is a piece of software that runs on the customer's computer, and sensitive information (like private keys) never leave that computer.
We have official clients for Android and iOS today.
Toshi uses a variety of open protocols, including the Signal protocol by Whisper Systems for end-to-end encrypted chat, the Ethereum network to transfer value, the SOFA protocol to enable third party apps, and (coming soon) the uPort identity protocol to store user profiles. Read more
