This platform provides several options to create a wallet and has 7 access modes:
- By entering the private key;
- Through the file Keystore (JSON);
- Through the 12-word mnemonic phrase;
- Through the ZilPay wallet extension;
- Through the Moonlet wallet extension;
- Through the Ledger hardware wallet;
- And the latest addition with Google credentials.
This integration has been made possible thanks to the service provided by Torus that allows managing authentication in a decentralized way; it can be defined as a key management solution because it is a true “Distributed Key Generation” protocol that allows the various applications and dApps to access this system through OAuth and thus use all the credentials of an account.
This service allows using different social platforms as login, such as Google, Facebook, Reddit, Twitch, Discord, Apple, GitHub, LinkedIn, Weibo and others, and is utilized by different tools such as Etherscan, Matic, Binance, ENS (Ethereum Name Service), Zilliqa, Ontology and others, therefore a system already well established and fully functional.
How to login to the wallet using Google
After choosing to log in with Google, a window will appear where the account can be linked.
The user is then reminded that the private keys will not be stored or transmitted over the network.
After connecting the Google account, the user will be linked to it with an address through which to manage the wallet, making it convenient and allowing to use any browser.
This represents an important step for the expansion of Zilliqa near the launch of the staking that will start next week and with which users can obtain a return between 10% and 5% depending on the pool. Also Binance should open its pool at the end of the month, but for the moment it will start with KuCoin.
The price of ZIL is currently performing well, although during the crypto crash in March it dropped to $0.002, while now it’s at $0.02, an increase of 900%.
