Software development company Sylo has officially launched Oya today – a complete reimagining of its backend architecture. The company said the new product “leads the way for mainstream decentralization.” Sylo’s goal is to democratize access to communication and financial capabilities, without sacrificing privacy, personal data and user experience. Additionally, Sylo has deployed wallet support for public blockchain Tezos in their multi-chain wallet-messenger decentralized app, the Sylo Smart Wallet, which currently has over 250,000 users around the world.
“We’ve solved the hard issues of scalability, performance and fair-reward in a decentralised setting, allowing developers to build apps with a real competitive advantage. The launch of Oya brings our vision of a future worth looking forward to, a whole lot closer and we’re really excited about what can be built on this new decentralised foundation,” said Ben Jordan, Sylo Co-Founder and Product Director, in a statement.
“The Oya Launch opens the door to a plethora of new features and business opportunities, many of which we will be unveiling over the next two quarters,” said Dorian Johannink, Sylo Co-Founder and Business Director.
The Tezos blockchain supporting firm TZ APAC is advising Sylo on technical integration of Tezos, to improve developer experience and increase adoption of the Sylo wallet in relation to Tezos in the Asia Pacific region, the company said. In the integration process, the Sylo team has touted the high-quality developer experience of building on Tezos, in comparison with Ethereum, the company said. It also added that the integration process is relatively easy, which makes Tezos “a prime choice for those looking to build powerful dApps.”
Tezos functionality is already live within the Sylo Smart Wallet, supported by the Oya launch, and Sylo is calling this announcement “a trifecta of functionality encompassing user-run nodes, speed-parity with mainstream centralised messengers and integration of XTZ into the Sylo messaging framework.”
Sylo has over 250,ooo users in over 70 countries.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years.

Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
