Discussions 2.0 preview — Unified ID, WebWallet.

Hello everyone, we are expecting to have the Discussions 2 beta ready for public testing sometime next week, so I thought I would walk you through some of the new additions we’ve made as well as what you can expect to follow shortly after the beta!

Unified ID.

One of the first majority feature we’re introducing is that of the Unified ID.

Like many other EOS Dapps before, using Discussions meant you needed an EOS account, which for the uninitiated, can be difficult and time consuming to set up and maintain.

With Unified ID, a user can generate a simple account and get started in less than three minutes.

Creating an Unified ID

With Multi-Chain support built-in, Unified ID will allow users to hold token balance on any supported blockchain. Maintain your token portfolio with one simple ID.



In addition to Unified ID, we’re also introducing WebWallet, an online wallet for signing transaction with Unified ID.

With WebWallet, users no longer have to install and manage dedicated software just to interact with Discussions. No more signing transaction for posting or simple voting.

We hope these two new additions will make the user experience of Discussions a much more fluid, and pleasant one.
