Let’s Replace Seed Phrases on Solana — Make Onboarding Easy for the Next Billion Users on both Wallets and Applications

Web3Auth receives Solana Foundation Grant, Launches Solana Torus Wallet, and Commits to 100% Support for all Wallets & Applications

A grant to push adoption — Eliminating seed phrases on dApps and wallets

It’s clear that in order to onboard the next billion users onto the ecosystem, something needs to change. These users need a seamless onboarding — an experience where the user can interface with the Dapp immediately without grappling with seed phrases. Fixing seed phrases has been Web3Auth’s mission and the Solana Foundation is glad to award us with a grant to help solve these gaps in onboarding for their ecosystem. Used already by Binance, Ubisoft’s NFT launch, Keplr (Cosmos), Rarible and other popular wallets/applications, we’re excited to share that today, Web3Auth’s threshold cryptography auth suite fully supports all Solana dApps and wallets.

How does Web3Auth solve the problem of onboarding for Solana?

1. Web3Auth Auth Suite

Web3Auth is a pluggable infrastructure that enables Web3 wallets and applications on Solana to provide seamless user logins for both mainstream and crypto native users. By aggregating OAuth (Google, Twitter, Discord) logins, different wallets, and existing key management solutions, Web3Auth provides a familiar experience that fits every user thereby increasing conversion rates by up to 64%

2. A state of the art Solana Torus Wallet

The Solana Torus Wallet is a result of months of collaboration between the development teams at Solana Labs and Web3Auth. It is a feature-rich non-custodial wallet built for users to securely store all digital assets on the Solana Blockchain and a gateway to access all dApps on Solana. The Solana Torus wallet is rich with some first-of-it’s-kind features such as:

  • Fiat-to-crypto without KYC — Users can purchase crypto with credit card W/O KYC for up to a certain limited threshold.
  • Social logins — Users can log in straight into dApps under a min with non-custodial social logins.
  • Mobile & web support — The wallet is mobile-first and supports both web and mobile flow with no need to download any app.
