Meet herotags

Be a hero!

Sometimes you don't want to share your phone number with strangers, or maybe you simply don't know the number of a person, brand, site or cause.

For all those cases, we are very proud to introduce the herotags. Herotags are special usernames powered by the Elrond blockchain through a DNS service deployed on Elrond Network.


Control your money.
Be your own bank.

At Maiar we help you protect your money with the highest level of security via cryptography and privacy features.

We're approaching security through a process called progressive security. When having nothing to lose, you start light, and gradually receive security suggestions proportional to the assets you store. The more you use the app, the more sophisticated security features are triggered, to help you stay safe and secure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Maiar is a digital wallet and global payments app that allows you to exchange and securely store money on your mobile phone. You can use Maiar to send and receive money near-instantly, to and from anyone around the world by just using a phone number or herotag.
Maiar will have the global launch on the 31st of January 2021.
Maiar will be available in all countries around the world, except those with specific restrictions to cryptocurrencies.
When Maiar is available, you will need just a smartphone with a SIM, running on iOS or Android. Since Maiar is a non-custodial digital wallet, no verification is required in any country as of now.
The Maiar wallet is completely decentralised and non-custodial. We don't store or have access to the user's funds at any time. The user owns the private key and has full control over their funds.
The phone number and address book information is not stored by Maiar. It is processed locally and never leaves the user's phone. A one way hashing mechanism is being used when interacting with the user's phone number, as well as during the contacts matching process, therefore the user's privacy is protected.
Elrond is an internet-scale blockchain for fast, secure digital payments. Elrond Gold (eGLD) is the native currency of the Elrond blockchain, that you can send, spend and stake using Maiar.
Maiar is free to download and use, The Elrond Network however, has minimal fees (as low as $0.001 per transaction) associated with payments in order to support security and speed of transactions. Maiar will always clearly display any fees charged so there are no surprises or hidden costs.
Initially, Maiar will support Elrond Gold (eGLD), Elrond (ERD ERC20 and ERD BEP2), Binance (BNB) and Ethereum (ETH). Over time, Maiar intends to support additional digital currencies, like BTC and others.
Maiar protects your assets and data using cutting edge encryption and verification techniques to ensure they're securely stored. In the event where your phone is lost or stolen, your private key (recovery phrase) can be safely used to recover your funds.

The Maiar (singular: Maia) are among a class of beings from J. R. R. Tolkien‘s high fantasy legendarium, like Lord of the Rings. Being of divine origin and possessing great power, the Maiar can wander the world unseen or shape themselves in fashion of Elves or other creatures. Maiar had great skills of hand and mind but were cloaked in the guise of men, seemingly old but of great vigour. Their mission was to guide elves and men by gaining trust and spreading knowledge, not by ruling them with fear and force. Gandalf the Grey (Olórin or Mithrandir; later Gandalf the White) was one of most known Maiar.
