Digital wallets

Registration without cryptocurrencies


A key issue, in many cases, is the need for owning cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum as a prerequisite to use certain applications based on the Ethereum ecosystem. This means people who are interested in using a certain DApp, first need to familiarize themselves with the ecosystems’ prerequisites, including all the problems of gathering information, setting up accounts, storing passwords securely, getting used to the way the application works, before even being able to create the account for the service you wanted to use in the first place; which again comes with all the issues mentioned previously. This can be incredible time demanding and infuriating, especially for beginners.


Users can perform the basic functionality of the application, which does not include cryptocurrencies, without linking the account to the wallet.
