By simplifying the user onboarding process, this groundbreaking solution has the potential to transform the blockchain landscape.
Sui is a Layer 1 blockchain, launched in May 2023. It is a permissionless, PoS-powered blockchain that aims to provide instant settlement and high throughput while also enabling a wide range of next-generation latency-sensitive decentralized applications.
Sui uses Move, a programming language based on Rust, to provide high-speed transactions, instant processing, and scalability.
It sets itself apart from earlier blockchain ecosystems by allowing parallel processing of transactions and horizontal scaling, which allows it to maintain low transaction costs.
According to Sui, the journey to blockchain adoption has often been marred by the complexities of creating and managing wallets, along with the associated security concerns.
For many potential users, this cumbersome process has resulted in onboarding drop-offs, hindering the growth of blockchain-based applications.
App developers seeking to ease user onboarding have faced limited options. These are either “developing and managing custodial wallets, which increases engineering and regulatory overhead, or integrating a third-party authentication solution, which introduces an extra layer of dependency and trust in out-of-protocol hardware or services.”
It added that since “no other blockchain provides a native way to integrate Web2 authentication providers for applications at the protocol level,” it has taken the challenge to create a solution, Therefore , developers can have access to a simple tool that will help more users into web3 applications that they build.
Sui noted that the zkLogin is significant for mass adoption, blockchain Integration, multi-device support (as zkLogin leverages Sui’s crypto capabilities, making it suitable for developing multi-device solutions with biometric authentication), and enhanced user privacy (as it prioritizes user privacy by not storing personal information on the blockchain, submitting only zero-knowledge proofs and ephemeral signatures).
The user-friendly login process, which only now support Google, Facebook, and Twitch, will be expanded to cover more options broadening access to a wider audience.
