#BuiltOnDAPP is a LiquidApps blog series that spotlights the exceptional projects and teams building scalable decentralized applications which utilize the DAPP Network universal middleware of services. This series showcases some of the most cutting-edge use cases and remarkable projects being built on our platform today.
What is a DAPP Account and what makes it different from a normal EOS blockchain account?
Raman Bindlish: DAPP Account is our vision of a blockchain account for the masses. We have seen that the adoption of blockchain has been limited for many reasons. Complicated crypto wallets and the risk of losing keys or passcodes is one of the biggest challenges. Using LiquidAccounts, DAPP Account enables decentralized applications to onboard users with simple sign-up, account recovery, access from any device and it also provides a full suite of smart contract integration.
DAPP Account keeps your keys in your device and it also allows you to have multiple devices connected to your on-chain account while each device contains its own keypair. Using 2-factor authentication, DAPP Account allows you to add a device or recover your keys if you lose access to the device. This makes the mass adoption of blockchain applications as easy to use as real world applications and we are excited about the possibilities. Everyone who uses online banking or a web service like Gmail or Facebook is familiar with this technology, and it is getting easier every day.
“We believe it will be very important for mass adoption that users across different chains can access their favorite dApps on any base layer with a single sign-in to a DAPP Account. We’re particularly excited about opening up DAPP Account to users and dApps on WAX and the new WORBLI.”
How is DAPP Account integrated with the DAPP Network and which DSP services does it utilize?
Raman Bindlish: DAPP Account uses LiquidAccounts, LiquidOracles and vRam for various services to enable multiple applications for subscribing to the technology.
Your team took 2nd place in the DAPP hackathon for building a virtual account system that could allow CEX users to lend resources and vote. How did that project evolve into a DAPP Account?
Raman Bindlish: DAPP Account was a requirement from so many decentralized applications and the solution we built during the DAPP hackathon is very much available to integrate into the DAPP Account framework. We have it operational in testnets and we can allow any exchange or a decentralized contract to enable the service. The technology is available for the community to take it further and you will soon hear some interesting ideas from us around this concept.
What has the reception been like from dApps so far and are there plans to integrate with third parties?
Raman Bindlish: The response from developers has been great: they love anything that can get users to their dApps. And now that LiquidAccounts isn’t just a concept — now that we have a real solution that works — we have heard from many who are very excited to integrate it. Our first custom integration is with Organic Community Market, who are using it to create blockchain accounts for every user on the platform to tokenize their membership and rewards program.
For most consumers on a web store, they don’t care about the underlying technology. There are many other features planned that will all revolve around our simple account creation.
There are more partnerships that we are actively working on, and people will be amazed when they see how seamless our custom integrations can be. Users won’t need to know anything about blockchain in order to enjoy its benefits, and we have some really innovative technology to make blockchain access secure and easy to use. We are working diligently to come out of the alpha stage and launch the next push for integration into bigger ecosystems.
What does the roadmap for the rest of 2020 look like for DAPP Account and are there any new and exciting features that you can share with us at this time?
Raman Bindlish: The possibilities are endless with user onboarding becoming simpler with DAPP Accounts.
One of the most compelling technologies we are watching is what Voice.com is building — decentralized identity. The more layers of authentication there are, especially ones that are not tied to government ID, the more at ease people will feel about using services like ours for critical applications. If it is available to us, we will explore integrating it into DAPP Account.
Our roadmap for 2020 sees us providing blockchain integration for Blokument, which is a groundbreaking new platform for digital signatures. Blockchain and the DAPP Network, in particular, will bring a level of speed, efficiency and security that other centralized e-signing companies just won’t be able to compete with.
We are also collaborating with the LiquidApps team to enable DAPP Accounts to operate across multiple EOSIO chains. We believe it will be very important for mass adoption that users across different chains can access their favorite dApps on any base layer with a single sign-in to a DAPP Account. We’re particularly excited about opening up DAPP Account to users and dApps on WAX and the new WORBLI.
Stay tuned for more of our #BuiltOnDAPP Spotlight Series, where we’ll highlight some of the most remarkable projects utilizing the DAPP Network Universal Middleware to scale their decentralized applications.
