This wallet plug-in will serve as a bridge between the computer/ mobile’s browser and NEO. As per the official blog of NEOLine, the wallet plug-in is packed with several features that will enable the users of the platform to accomplish the entire “asset viewing, transfer, browsing transaction and other wallet functions as usual.” Other features include-
dAPI for the decentralized applications-
Without a hardware wallet, estimating the right and wrong around the contract in terms of contract interaction needs becomes tricky. Also, reviewing becomes tedious. For this, the dAPI for the decentralized applications from NEOLine helps the developers in using the “JS Library.” This enables much more efficient interaction between the decentralized applications and the wallet. This benefits the developers, users, dApp providers as well as makes the right use of smart contracts. All this can be done by clicking on ‘connection’ option on the platform.
The dApp acts as a catalyst yet does not directly participates in the transactions and other processes. This guarantees strong security that is backed by Chrome’s privacy features and of the NEOLine. The sensitive information of the user is encrypted and is stored in the users’ computer. This ensures a greater safety around the private key, the address information, etc.
Further, as per the blog, the NEOLine team is in the process of making the dAPIs even more user-friendly and easy to use. For detailed information, you can check the official blog of NEOLine.
Managing more than one address-
The platform offers a seamless easy-to-use system wherein the user can move from the main network to the test network by just one click. The user can also build accounts, add more accounts to the main account which can further act as ‘independent accounts,’ get the private keys, exchange money on the platform, administer assets, keep a tab on the transactions, use the “multi-language” option, and so on.
Further, the blog instructs on the operational steps that include things like guidance on adding the plug-ins to Chrome, creation of new accounts or importing information from the existing NEO wallet, instructions on transfers, how to set up and how to manage one’s preferred languages, and how to get “authorized connections. For details on each step, the official blog of NEOLine will be very helpful.
The blog also talks about Bloys browser, plans around support for “NFT versions” and offers the game developers for offering more efficient services.
