Circle Launches Beta Test of Wallet-as-a-Service
Circle, the company behind the second largest stablecoin USDC, has announced the beta testing of a new service enabling developers to integrate web3 wallets into their applications. This wallet-as-a-service platform allows users to have access to digital assets such as non fungible tokens (NFTs) and cryptocurrencies.
User Friendly Design
The platform boasts an easy to use design that allows developers on the more technical side to start exploring it immediately and even integrating apps right away. However, one downside is that users are required to self custody their own private keys in order for them use it.
The current model is still in beta which signifies Circle’s commitment in refining its service before they fully launch it. The introduction of this wallet as a service platform could solidify Circle’s resolve in pioneering accessible and secure digital asset management solutions for developers.
Increasing Demand For Web 3 Assets
This venture may also underscores the increasing interest and demand for web3 assets due to it’s ease of accessibility and security when managing these digital asset solutions. With Circle being the second largest stablecoin by circulating supply after tether (USDT), according The Block’s Data Dashboard data, they are slowly becoming one of leading contenders in providing user friendly and secure services for people interested in cryptocurrencies or other web 3 assets like NFTs .
Additional Updates To Come
Circle has anticipated this issue regarding user control when utilizing private keys so they plan on rolling out updates soon that would allow developers to manage them instead. This update will add another layer of trust between users and Circle’s services while creating an environment where people can securely explore different types of digital assets with ease .
