Web3Auth has announced the launch of the Firebase extension. The launch is happening in association with Google Cloud. Firebase is Google’s platform that enables developers to construct their digital ideas for users; these digital ideas are referred to as mobile and web applications.
The challenge for Web2 enterprises has been largely to convince users that a transition to Web3 is only natural and safe. However, they have struggled to gather the required number of users to make the shift. As a matter of fact, most Web3 enterprises are also struggling to educate users about the concept of tools that are exclusive to Web3.
The Firebase extension by Web3Auth and Google Cloud helps eliminate that issue by offering a resolution that seamlessly onboard users to Web3.
Another challenge that both of them have taken head-on pertains to the storage of public addresses of user wallets. It now provides segmentation of users based on demographics, customer profiling, and exploration of a new user base.
Zhen Yu Yong, the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Web3Auth, has said that they chose Google Cloud because they needed unparalleled performance to meet global demand. Google Cloud basically gives Web3Auth more power to run its operations smoothly, further helping Web2-centric applications to allow seamless logins. The same applies to projects that are native to Web2.
Firebase extension majorly solves the problem of NFT and airdrops. These functions are only a single click away from execution. Developers will not have to write custom logic to get the wallet addresses and store them in a database.
Web3Auth recently partnered with McDonald’s operational arm in Singapore. The association was to debut 2,000 non-fungible tokens. These would allow customers to mint Grimace NFT, along with exclusive perks and access to incentives only for the holders of the NFT.
As for security, developers can generate public-private key pairs through Firebase authentication and Web3Auth MPC (multi-party computation). This means that the login to the Web3 wallet can be done directly with email and passwords.
Developers can install the Web3Auth Firebase extension in four simple steps. First, they must review their billing and usage. This is to check that developers are subscribed to a billing plan. Click Next once reviewed. Then, review APIs that have been enabled and resources that have been created. The third step required developers to check for all the permissions that they have given to the Firebase extension. Finally, configure the extension by mapping details to the Web3Auth project on the dashboard.
While the location will be selected automatically, developers will have to sign up on the developer dashboard of Web3Auth for Verifier Name, Client ID, and Web3Auth Network.
The Web3Auth Firebase extension is now live in association with Google Cloud. The idea is to help Web2 businesses transition into Web3, while also helping them to onboard a larger number of users into the Web3 ecosystem.
