How Exodus Passkeys wallet claims to simplify Web3 onboarding

Exodus, a major software self-custodial wallet for cryptocurrency, is expanding its ecosystem beyond its platform with a new solution that allows users to integrate the wallet into any application.

Exodus Movement, the United States-based firm that created the Exodus wallet, on July 9 announced the launch of Exodus Passkeys Wallet.

The tool allows users to create and fund their embedded wallet directly in any platform or application, aiming to further boost Web3 onboarding and integration of decentralized applications (DApps). The new product can also be used as a standalone application, the announcement notes.

No need for seed phrases or verifications

With Passkeys Wallet, developers and users can create and fund an embedded wallet directly within the used application. According to the announcement, the process does not require users to fill in any seed phrases, browser extensions or email verifications, significantly simplifying the integration process.

“With just one click, users can create their wallet, or ‘Passkey,’ and seamlessly connect to an application, able to market-integrate in less than 10 minutes, with just a few lines of code,” Exodus co-founder and CEO JP Richardson said.

While simplifying wallet integrations across DApps, Exodus still ensures that users have complete control over their assets in a secured ecosystem.

Exodus Passkeys Wallet allows transaction limits but still maintains self-custody

According to the announcement, the Exodus Passkeys Wallet is built using Multi-Party Computation (MPC) technology, which aims to enhance security by distributing private key control across multiple parties.

The Passkeys Wallet also expands user safety with features like spending limits while maintaining self-custody, the announcement notes.

Additionally, Passkeys Wallet uniquely supports Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), Bitcoin (BTC), and Solana (SOL), providing users with flexibility and access to diverse blockchain ecosystems and DApps.

Announcing the news, Exodus Movement mentioned that the waitlist for Passkeys Wallet is now live. Interested users are invited to sign up to be among the first to test out the new wallet using the link to the Passkeys Foundation.

Officially launched in 2016, Exodus is one of the most popular self-custody crypto wallets. It allows users to store crypto without intermediaries. The multi-chain wallet doesn’t require users to sign up for an account and supports more than 50 crypto networks.

Exodus became a publicly traded company in 2021, after listing its stock with broker-dealer tZero.
