Irys brings provenance to Solana Mobile

Irys brings provenance to Solana Mobile

November 29, 2023

Solana Mobile is now storing dApp Store applications on Irys. This collaboration brings provenance to mobile applications for the first time.

This integration was driven by Solana Mobile's need for a reliable way to store APKs and other application assets. Irys, which uses Arweave for permanent storage, emerged as the ideal choice for its frictionless integration, performance, and permanence.

"The Solana Mobile team has empowered our industry by pioneering the first crypto-native app store. We’re thrilled to support their work by bringing provenance to their dApp store" said Irys Founder and CEO, Josh Benaron.

Strong provenance ensures that data on Solana’s Mobile dApp store is permanent, precise, and unconstrained:

  • Permanent: Permanence of data on the dApp store ensures censorship resistance for apps on the dApp store. It ensures that apps can never be removed as we have seen on both Apple and Google’s app stores.

  • Precise: End-to-end signature verification cryptographically ensures the provenance of the app; it ensures that the app in circulation is exactly the one that the publisher intended. This protects users against common industry threats, such as the man-in-the-middle attack.

  • Unconstrained: With no limits on data uploads and the ability to instantly read and write data, Irys scales to seamlessly accommodate the dApp store’s requirements.

Olivier, Tech Lead at Solana Mobile, emphasized the importance of this partnership:

"Composability, security, ownership. We wanted to account for these three pillars to have a web3-native app store. With Irys’ support, we have managed to accomplish this."

We’re thrilled to empower Solana Mobile!
