Web3Auth and StarkWare Announce Strategic Partnership
The partnership will work towards making it easy for everyone to interact with the blockchain — self-custodially and without seed phrase
Web3Auth and StarkWare Sign-in a Strategic Partnership
Web3Auth and StakWare enter into a Strategic Partnership that will provide a major push to our shared vision of onboarding the next billion users into Web3. The genesis of StarkWare lies in improving scalability and privacy on the blockchain so as to accommodate more and more users. Web3Auth’s origins lie in the fact that seed phrases create a huge entry barrier in onboarding mainstream users into blockchain applications. Given their strikingly similar genesis, it is only natural that both ecosystem stakeholders joined forces to increase mainstream adoption of crypto.
What does the partnership entail?
Uri Kolodny, CEO & Co-Founder, StarkWare:
“Our teams share the mutual goal of bringing web3 closer to mainstream users. With Web3Auth providing easy login and onboarding of users, and with StarkWare providing low gas costs and security, this partnership is a natural and important step in achieving this goal.”
StarkWare Offers Grant to Web3Auth
In a major endorsement for Web3Auth’s mission, StarkWare has offered Web3Auth a grant to ensure its self-custodial private key infrastructure powers as many dApps and wallets in the Web3 eco-system as possible. How we onboard users and handle their private keys in the next few years will largely determine the pace at which the Web3 eco-system will grow. The grant will be used by Web3Auth to to make its authentication suite available and accessible to as many developers as possible and by doing so, to more and more applications and users.
Web3Auth Announces Sign-in With StarkWare
Also as part of the partnership, last week, Web3Auth and StarkWare announced Sign-in With StarkWare, a unique initiative that brings in the security of StarkWare to Web2 allowing users to sign-in to any Web3 application using their StarkWare account.
Quote from Zhen, CEO & Co-founder, Web3Auth:
“Our partnership with StarkWare is a natural evolution of both our organizations’ genesis — to make blockchain more accessible to the masses. This partnership holds immense possibilities for the ecosystem overall and we are excited to see what it unfolds”
