Sylo Partners with Centrality

Sylo Partners with Centrality to Create the Decentralised Future

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND – 11 October 2018 – Kiwi software development company, Sylo, is partnering with global blockchain venture studio, Centrality.

Sylo’s decentralised application (DApp) and communications and storage protocol will become the toolkit and user-access point for the Centrality ecosystem.

Sylo’s innovative peer-to-peer confidential communication application has already gained global user adoption. It forms the foundation of a fully decentralised application that will launch in Beta by the end of 2018.

The two have joined forces to realise their shared vision of a decentralised future. Sylo will leverage Centrality’s extensive international network of relationships. Centrality will strengthen its offering with Sylo’s feature-rich end-user application.

The Sylo-Centrality partnership will provide communication, storage, identity, exchange, payment rails and big data services.

Sylo Co-Founder and Product Director Ben Jordan says that the partnership with Centrality brings the opportunity for Sylo to get alongside other companies in the ecosystem and open up its decentralised communication and storage network to be used within other DApps.

“The value of blockchain is realised when those in the chain come together to provide people with seamless and secure experiences, whether they’re communicating or transacting peer-to-peer. Working with Centrality will help Sylo make that a reality,” says Jordan.

Centrality brings significant scale and resources to the table, enabling Sylo to increase its global reach.

“Centrality is on a mission to bring decentralised technology to consumer mass markets, Sylo is the vanguard of this mission,” says Centrality Co-Founder and CEO Aaron McDonald. “Social applications are the centre of the consumer app universe and Sylo provides the anchor point for consumers and developers to connect amazing new experiences. It’s time the world had social communication tools that respect privacy, that’s what Sylo delivers.”

Sylo is already working with a number of companies within the Centrality ecosystem, covering areas such as transportation, real estate, provenance tracking, artificial intelligence and more. These collaborations will demonstrate capacity to build and sustain the long-term value of Sylo tokens.

“Our partnership with Centrality allows our vision for the Sylo application to become even bigger. We can now operate with a range of different companies and bring all of those functional benefits to Sylo users and beyond,” says Sylo Co-Founder and Business Director Dorian Johannink.

“Centrality was founded on a vision of bringing decentralisation to the world. This fits firmly with Sylo’s belief in growth through collaboration as opposed to competition. We are really excited about working more closely with Centrality and the family of companies that operate under its umbrella.”
