We’re thrilled to announce the open beta release of Band Protocol mobile staking portal — the latest ecosystem tool we’ve been developing in the past few weeks.
Not only is the technology landscape changing every year, but the way people access technology and the web is also changing too. 58% of web traffic in 2018 were from mobile devices. Prioritizing user experience and expanding the tools for the Band Protocol ecosystem — we’ve encapsulated a stripped-down version of the data governance portal for mobile devices.
The portal is available now on https://staking.bandprotocol.com via any mobile wallet that supports the Kovan testnet such as Coinbase wallet or Metamask Mobile.
Features of the Mobile Staking Portal
While keeping it simple, we ensured that users were able to operate all the key tasks on the mobile staking portal as they would on the web. These tasks include:
- View BAND and Dataset token (XFN) balances from the mobile wallet.
- Exchange between BAND and any Dataset token.
- Stake for data providers and track the rewards in real-time.
- View the current rich list of Band token holders.
We’ve revised the user interface and interactions from the ground up to create an elegant yet simple-to-use experience on smartphones.
Developed with a Secure Frontend Framework
Mainnet Release Plans
For a short period of time, the application will not be available on Mainnet until we’re certain that there is no security loophole and the user experience is the best it can be.
As such, we’re excited to join our community in finding bugs and listening to their feedback to drive improvements to the staking portal before releasing the Mainnet version.
