One of the challenges that blockchain games face is onboarding new users with all they need to start playing. Among these challenges is providing an easy-to-use digital asset wallet that can iron out the friction of getting started. Dapper Labs has since introduced the community to its dedicated Dapper wallet.
Dapper Wallet – the differences
Priding itself on being ‘decentralization for humans,’ Dapper aims to provide a similar kind of solution as Metamask. Where it sets itself apart is that it provides greater autonomy to the player, thanks to being a smart contract wallet.
Why this is different is because players store their digital assets directly on this smart contract. Which is in contrast with other solutions which store them off-chain, or with the user’s device.
The latter two methods provide security and ease of use respectively but at the expense of speed (off-chain) and security (device storage).
Along with smart contract storage, the wallet makes use of Simplex to enable direct ETH payments.
Being a payments processor, the inclusion of Simplex means users will be able to directly buy ETH from their wallets. This cuts out any need for an over-long process of buying ETH and transferring it.
Along with being a smart contract solution for item storage, Dapper provides users with an Account ‘Rescue Kit.’ What this entails is a personal backup key which, along with your email and password, allows you to recover your account.
Currently, the wallet is integrated with five games so far, these consist of:
