Qredo Launches WalletConnect Integration For Early Adopters
Qredo is launching a new integration with WalletConnect, an open protocol for accessing decentralized finance (DeFi).
The integration provides a convenient way to deploy digital assets into DeFi, backed by the powerful governance and security of Qredo's decentralized custody.
Using the integration, individuals and institutions can select from more than 450 dApps across all EVM chains, connect easily by scanning a QR code, and then securely sign transactions through their own custom governance structure.
Access hundreds of dApps across dozens of blockchains
Qredo's integration with WalletConnect v1.0 supports any EVM-compatible chain, unlocking access to almost the entire world of DeFi and NFTs.
Connect by simply scanning a QR code
No need for insecure browser plugins, clunky APIs, or additional software. Simply scan a QR code to establish a secure connection between wallet and dApp.
Secure signing activity with decentralized MPC
Transactions are signed through your own custom governance secured by decentralized multi-party computation (MPC) — removing the risk of private key theft or loss.
"Qredo's WalletConnect integration offers a complete DeFi and NFT package for individual traders and organizations — from DAOs to crypto funds and growing investment teams. All of these players can benefit from tapping into trading, lending and staking strategies from the most secure form of custody available."
— Qredo COO Josh Goodbody
What is WalletConnect?
WalletConnect is an open protocol for secure communication between Wallets and Web3 apps.
On WalletConnect, messages between dApps and wallets are secured in an end-to-end encrypted channel. WalletConnect cannot see any part of the communication.
Combined with Qredo's decentralized transaction signing and secure governance, this brings new levels of security to DeFi.
How Does Qredo x WalletConnect Work?
Simply navigate to your chosen dApp, connect with a QR code, and deploy assets directly from Qredo.
