Kenes Rakishev, his Finney phone and the post-COVID IT development

The spike in traffic that resulted from the lockdown imposed by governments yielded a lot of security issues. VPN's are struggling to perform under the load. People often have to transfer sensitive data working from home. Traffic sniffers are thriving. In these times security is a key to success or at least a barrier before the failure. Kenes Rakishev, one of the founders of Sirin Labs, realized it way before the current crisis.

Finney phone is an ultra-modern, highly secure blockchain smartphone made possible by Kenes Rakishev and Sirin Labs' crowdfunding campaign. It is a first smartphone built around the blockchain universe with a great deal of security in mind.

The device is supported by Sirin OS and has various functions and apps, including the Finney Wallet from Sirin Labs, the dCenter App Store from Sirin Labs, the Cyber Security Center, the Finney App Locker, the Finney camera application, ProtonMail, Koolspan Trust Call, Cointelegraph and Android standard apps as well as Google apps.

The Sirin OS Cyber Security Centre is also installed on the Finney, which monitors the device in real time for threats and other security problems. It sports AI attack and data leak prevention. Sirin OS and wallet app are updated and new features are being introduced.

The launch of Sirin Labs project was a remarkable event. Kenes Rakishev and other founders of Sirin Labs embraced Lionel Messi participation in the launch. On December 8, 2017, Sirin Labs announced that Messi was appointed brand ambassador. After announcing on Facebook and Instagram that he was happy to be part of the blockchain revolution, he may have invited his fans to follow the blockchain path as well.

After the madness of late 2017, the general public is far less exposed to cryptocurrency news. Large news agencies are trying to keep it dark. The only news is negative. It is coordinated politics. Crypto has become something on the edge. Something that shouldn't be discussed publicly. Some words are even completely prohibited, such as: Bitcoin, ICO. This was also felt by serious projects with investments in the millions. The fate of amazing inventions such as Kenes Rakishev Sirin Labs' Finney crypto smartphone looked grim.

Kenes Rakishev and the niche of safe smartphones

To be honest, the crypto community is partly to blame. There were real scams among decent and expensive projects. As more blockchain projects started postponing their ICOs scams, they were just trying to tear off the last few cents. The public has become suspicious.

Sooner or later it will be fixed. Fraudsters have been cheated elsewhere. Decent blockchain projects will only win. Crypto will recover and find new horizons in terms of usability and application.

Finney is the only phone on the market. Yes, indeed there are phones with some built-in wallets. Or luxury brands. Or even security-oriented solutions. But only Finney tried to do everything at once.

The high price of the Finney smartphone is not a problem for those who are serious about crypto. So it is only a matter of time when it will reappear. When the business returns to the entire blockchain scene, it will also be the customers that Finney will look best for. It is not intended for crypto enthusiasts: it should be used by the business world.

Perhaps the redevelopment of the technology will revive the idea much earlier. The Exodus wallet has gone mobile and will benefit from Sirin hardware and middleware. Kenes Rakishev's phone will again be the figurehead of the revolution after a few updates.

Kenes Rakishev's Sirin Labs to turn into Sirin Cyber

Kenes Rakishev, the founder and one of the owners of the world-famous Sirin Labs, has announced the rebranding. Sirin Labs becomes Sirin Cyber to accommodate changing market priorities. Cyber security is a major concern for government agencies, corporations, and large corporations around the world. With its innovative products, Sirin Cyber from Kenes Rakishev will be able to gain a share of these highly competitive and lucrative development markets.

Police Commissioner (retired) David Cohen and former Lahav 433 unit commander Roni Ritman will be managing partners of Sirin Cyber, which is controlled by Kenes Rakishev and Moshe Hogeg.

Kenes Rakishev's new company will create a platform for cyber security projects, businesses and investments. It will also provide services and solutions to customers from the public and private sectors in Israel and abroad. The subsidiary will be established to replace Sirin Labs' proposed merger with an Israeli cyber security company, as reported in Globes last December.

Rakishev, Managing Partner of Sirin Labs, commented on the founding of the subsidiary as follows:

“We have set ourselves the goal to combine the skills and know-how that we have developed and acquired over the years in the area of ​​information security with Leverage extensive experience of our experienced law enforcement partners in Israel to take Sirin a step further and develop new technologies with the goal of becoming a leader in cybersecurity. "

Kenes Rakishev is one of the most successful venture capitalists in Kazakhstan. His interests range from startups to mining and from IT to charity. He is known for his involvement in the Saby Charity Fund for Young Entrepreneurs and the environment, as well as his outstanding efforts to return assets stolen from BTA Bank.
