OST Platform enables businesses with millions of users to easily integrate blockchain Tokens tokens into their apps without requiring any in-house blockchain development.
This release, 27 March 2019, is the first full release of the OST Platform and includes all of the core features and APIs needed to integrate and deploy Tokens to end-users in Production (on mainnet). Most notably, while earlier releases enabled developers to run test transactions, this is the first release that contains end-user wallets via the OST Wallet SDK, as well as Sandbox and Production modes to toggle between testing and deploying Tokens.
OST Platform March 27 2019 release follows 18 months of development and customer input on how to make blockchain technologies user-friendly, including several rounds of alpha testing involving thousands of developers. OST Platform has also undergone extensive security audits and testing leading up to this release.
Some of the key features of OST Platform include:
- Create Tokens and easily integrate them into any app. SaaS dashboards, APIs, and SDKs to easily integrate your Tokens into any app
- Sandbox and Production modes. Integrate and test in Sandbox. Move to Production when ready to launch to end users
- Streamlined UX for token design and deployment
- Run transactions on highly scalable, low-cost, sidechains
- Support for multiple admins
- The OST Wallet SDK to fully integrate Tokens into apps and enable seamless end-user transactions
- User wallet recovery with PIN + smart contract

Seamless Key Management
The OST Platform leverages on the advancement of the OpenST Protocol to support key-management solutions (via the Wallet SDK) that enables the integration of non-custodial cryptocurrency wallets into mainstream mobile applications, without encumbering the user experience.
Usability is Key
Across the board, we’ve optimized for a simpler, more seamless user experience: whether it is the use of sessionKeys that make in-app transactions seamless, or the DelayedRecoveryModule which enables the users to recover access to their wallets with a 6 digit PIN.
From The Team
While this release is a big milestone in our development, it's still the beginning of the beginning of the beginning. We have an ambitious roadmap of features to add over the coming months and years to make OST Platform the essential toolkit for powering the future of brand loyalty. We look forward to your feedback.
