How DIMO built a seamless in-app wallet with Web3Auth
With Web3Auth, DIMO built an in-app wallet that massively improved the user experience. In the web3 world, seamless UI usually sucks. Clunky apps are often the biggest roadblock when scaling web3 projects. Imagine you have to educate car owners that’s behind on technology about web3/crypto, seed phrases, and the complex authentication process.
DIMO tackled this problem head-on.
Our in-app wallet has massively improved the DIMO user experience, allowing for just about anyone to connect their car to DIMO, no matter how technologically inept. Since DIMO launched the in-app wallet earlier this year, DIMO has had only 0.01% of support tickets related to the in-app wallet. In other words, Web3Auth’s in-app wallet is seamless, resulting in practically zero complaints, even from users new to web3.
This would not be the case if Web3Auth’s integration wasn’t absolutely seamless. With Web3Auth, DIMO Mobile has become an efficient and secure marketplace for the automobile industry, paving the way for new opportunities and partnerships in the realm of automobile crypto projects.
Integrating Web3Auth and DIMO: Why is this exciting news for the auto & crypto industries?
Simplified Authentication System
Web3Auth eliminates the need for users to create a non-custodial blockchain wallet, which can be a tedious and time-consuming process. Instead, users can simply sign in using their email address, like a Google or Apple address, and have the wallet creation happen in the background.
This means that users don't have to deal with the complexities of managing a blockchain wallet, and they can focus on using DIMO's features and services.
Users new to crypto can fall victim to hacks and phishing attacks, often due to the fact that they make mistakes managing their keys or find themselves clicking on unknown links. Web3Auth mitigates this significantly, if not entirely, since users are using familiar and secure authentication methods like Google with a link to the blockchain to verify their identity on sign-in.
By integrating Web3Auth into the DIMO Mobile App, users can be confident that their personal information and assets are protected.
Web3Auth is designed to be interoperable with a wide range of dApps and wallets, making it easier for users to switch between different platforms without having to create new accounts or passwords.
As DIMO gets ready to launch its developer platform, there will soon be dozens of apps built on DIMO that allow users to sign in with the very same authentication method provided by Web3Auth, ensuring a smooth onboarding to any DIMO app.
The Impact on the Automobile Industry and Automobile Crypto Projects
The integration of Web3Auth into DIMO Mobile is a game-changer for the automobile industry and automobile crypto projects. It makes it easier for car owners to access the DIMO platform and enjoy the benefits of blockchain technology without having to navigate the complexities of managing a blockchain wallet. The simplified onboarding process offered by Web3Auth opens up new opportunities for automobile industry stakeholders to collaborate with DIMO and other web3 projects to build innovative solutions that improve the driving experience, promote data privacy and security.
