Binance Launches Web3 Wallet to Make Web3 Accessible to Millions of Users

Published

on

 

Binance, the global blockchain ecosystem behind the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, is excited to announce the launch of its Web3 Wallet. The product, which was officially unveiled today during the company’s flagship Binance Blockchain Week conference in Istanbul, aims to meet the demand for a simple, convenient and secure way to experience the world of Web3. Millions of Binance users can now explore and experience Web3, without the risk of losing seed phrases or struggling with complicated onboarding processes.

Serving as a digital gateway to Web3, Binance’s Web3 Wallet is a self-custody crypto wallet built within the Binance app. With this latest launch, users now have access to a secure and streamlined method to swap thousands of tokens across various networks at great prices, explore a variety of decentralized applications (dApps), quickly transfer funds between exchange and wallet, earn yield on their crypto and more, all in one secure wallet.

“Web3 wallets represent more than just storing digital assets; they are an integral part of the Web3 framework, empowering individuals with the ability for self-sovereign finance,” says Changpeng Zhao (‘CZ’), CEO and Founder of Binance.

For most users, Web3 is complex. The Binance Web3 wallet is designed with user experience as the top and foremost priority, with the goal of making Web3 more accessible and easier for users to get started. Users, regardless of whether they are new to crypto or are already experienced traders, will find value in using Web3 Wallet. The main advantages of Web3 Wallet include:

Unparalleled Simplicity: Built directly into the Binance mobile application, users can create and activate their Web3 Wallet in seconds. The seamless integration means that users can access dApps and DeFi features directly within the Binance interface, without needing to juggle across platforms. The use of Multi-Party Computation (MPC), an advanced security technique, also removes the need for users to manage or memorize seed phrases without compromising on the benefits of security and self-custody.

All-In-One Convenience: Putting one’s idle crypto to work and earning interest on assets becomes much more accessible and seamless with the Web3 Wallet. There is a suite of innovative Earn and DeFi services within the Web3 Wallet to allow users to receive rewards from their digital assets. Binance’s Web3 Wallet is also the hub for users to explore various dApps, purchase cryptocurrencies through the Swap function at great prices thanks to deep liquidity and low slippage, and perform cross-chain trades across various networks at the tap of a button.

Robust Security: Protecting users and their assets is a key priority. With MPC technology, a user’s private keys are broken into three smaller parts known as key-shares. Having the key-shares split across three different locations mitigates the risk of the keys being compromised and reduces the vulnerability of the system. Two out of the three key-shares are controlled by users, which is intentional as Web3 Wallet is self-custodial. Funds held in the wallet are exclusively owned and accessible only by the user. Enhanced security features, such as wrong address protection and malicious contract detection, are also incorporated to notify users if a token or blockchain address carries a security risk at the time of the transaction.

CZ added, “Much as we believe Web3 will improve the freedom of money around the world, our industry must continue to build tools that onboard and protect users while also reducing friction for them. To help drive Web3 adoption, we have to identify and plug the gaps between centralized and decentralized systems. Binance’s Web3 Wallet lowers the barriers of entry for users to achieve full self-custody of their assets and it is an important, convenient bridge towards DeFi empowerment. Ultimately, our priority is to ensure users can explore Web3 with us within a user-friendly and protected environment.”

Richard Teng, Head of Regional Markets at Binance, also shared, “The overall aim when designing our Web3 Wallet is to help elevate the current user journey of experiencing Web3. We want our users to be assured that they are interacting with Web3 within a secure and protected ecosystem. That is why we have incorporated MPC technology as well as Binance’s trusted security infrastructure within the Web3 Wallet. The common stress of worrying about losing one’s seed phrase is removed, so that we can introduce a secure and smooth entry point for millions of users to safely and easily explore the Web3 universe.”

Binance Web3 Wallet is developed in partnership with the product and engineering team at Trust Wallet, and utilizes the same wallet technology layer services. Despite this coupling, Binance maintains autonomous control over Web3 Wallet’s features, operations, and services. To ensure a seamless experience with the newly launched Web3 Wallet, users are able to reach out to Binance’s 24/7 Customer Support to assist with any questions or help needed.

Legal Luminary Sarah Brennan Champions Pioneering Crypto Regulation Approaches

Published

legal-luminary-sarah-brennan-champions-pioneering-crypto-regulation-approaches

Sarah Brennan, an accomplished figure in corporate and securities law, serves as General Counsel at Delphi Ventures, focusing on investments in the Web3 space. With over 14 years of experience in securities law and a deep involvement in digital assets since 2017, Brennan also co-leads LeXpunK, a collective dedicated to establishing legal frameworks for decentralized digital communities.

In a candid interview with a prominent cryptocurrency news outlet, Brennan discussed various critical topics. She addressed the emergence of crypto super PACs, funded significantly by major firms like Ripple and Circle, to counter strict SEC regulations. Brennan viewed the SAB 121 bill, backed by the US administration, as potentially isolating the crypto community from broader financial integration.

While acknowledging the influence of centralized entities in advocating for crypto interests, Brennan cautioned against replicating traditional financial hierarchies within the crypto sphere, which contradicts its revolutionary ethos. She expressed concerns about monopolistic scenarios that could dominate the crypto landscape, exerting excessive control over essential industry components and traditional financial operations.

Regarding regulatory challenges, Brennan advocated for tailored regulations to manage systemic risks posed by large centralized crypto institutions. She criticized the current regulatory opacity and inconsistency, which she believes have fostered suboptimal business practices. Through LeXpunK, Brennan endeavors to pioneer experimental legal structures that could redefine regulatory compliance for token issuances, though reception from policymakers has been lukewarm.

Looking ahead, Brennan emphasizes the need for proactive regulatory approaches using antitrust measures to prevent crypto monopolies, promote decentralization, and target bad actors. However, she highlighted the persistent communication gap between crypto-literate legal advocates and hesitant regulators as a significant obstacle.

Brennan continues to drive forward her mission through new advocacy platforms aimed at shaping the future of cryptographic regulation, navigating complexities to ensure balanced and effective regulatory frameworks in the evolving crypto landscape.

Italy Ramps Up Crypto Oversight in Line with MiCA

Published

Italy is preparing to strengthen its oversight of cryptocurrency markets to align with the European Union’s Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA) regulatory framework. This initiative, initially enacted in 2022, aims to impose stricter monitoring of digital asset markets, particularly targeting insider trading and market manipulation. Under the new decree, fines ranging from 5,000 to 5 million euros ($5,400 to $5.4 million) will be imposed based on the severity of violations, reinforcing compliance and market integrity.

For blockchain firms and decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols, MiCA presents significant challenges. These entities must decide between fully decentralizing their networks or complying with MiCA’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations. Fully decentralized networks are exempt from reporting requirements but risk non-compliance if they employ foundations or intermediaries moderating communities.

Centralized exchanges like Binance are adapting to MiCA by categorizing stablecoins as authorized or unauthorized, aligning with regulatory requirements without delisting these assets from spot markets. Uphold has similarly adjusted by delisting certain stablecoins for compliance purposes.

Despite regulatory pressures, experts are optimistic about stablecoins’ future. Figures like Jeremy Allaire, CEO of Circle, predict stablecoins could represent 10% of the money supply within a decade. They anticipate widespread adoption driven by benefits such as financial inclusion, lower remittance costs, and seamless cross-border commerce via public blockchains.
