Today, we're excited to announce the launch of the new passkey feature on Stellar, designed to provide a familiar and secure user experience in the decentralized world of Web3. This innovation is a significant step forward in helping to improve the safety and security/accessibility of the network.

Bringing Web2 User Experience to Web3

Navigating the complex world of Web3 has been challenging for many users. The new passkey feature simplifies this journey, offering a seamless onboarding experience that feels familiar and intuitive. With the passkey, users can easily sign contracts and verify transactions using biometrics, eliminating the need for traditional two-factor authentication (2FA) and reducing the risk of data breaches.

Key Benefits of the Passkey Feature

We understand that complex interfaces can be a barrier to adoption. That's why our passkey feature leverages a user-friendly flow that mirrors the simplicity of Web2 applications, making it easier for everyone to transition to Web3.

Enhanced Security: In an era where data breaches are all too common, the non-custodial and decentralized solution provides robust security without compromising user control. By moving away from centralized solutions, Stellar offers a user experience that truly empowers individuals.

Reliable Technology: Frustrations with buggy apps and constant errors are now hopefully a thing of the past. The combination of Soroban, secp256r1, and passkey services ensures a reliable and efficient experience for all users.

Biometric Authentication: Signing transactions with biometrics is a game-changer. This feature enhances security and streamlines the user experience, making it more convenient and secure.

Built with Purpose

The Stellar passkey feature is more than just a technological advancement; it reflects a commitment to user-centric design and real-world impact. Stellar has practical and transformative solutions that help bridge the gap between traditional and decentralized financial systems.

Launching the Stellar passkey feature is a significant leap forward in this journey. Stellar invites early adopters and developers to explore the possibilities of this new feature and join us in shaping the future of Web3.
