WalletConnect Sign is an open protocol designed to allow secure peer-to-peer communication between dapps and wallets. Clients can live on one or two separate devices and exchange messages through JSON-RPC methods defined by the protocol.
WalletConnect raises 11M to build out the messaging layer for Web3
We are happy to announce today that we have raised a 11M Series A funding round co-led by USV and 1kx to scale wallet interoperability and develop a generalized messaging layer. This is followed by a 1.25M Seed funding round also led by 1kx early last year that helped us build our founding team.
The WalletConnect ecosystem has grown so rapidly in the last year that we have struggled to keep up with every new integration. Our open-source app registry continues to accumulate more and more submissions but we don’t have enough bandwidth to review all of them.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas so we have prepared a special gift for our community. We have released the first v2.0 Beta for both Swift and Kotlin SDKs supporting iOS and Android platforms, respectively.
If you follow WalletConnect or me on Twitter, you would’ve seen plenty of teasers on different features and properties of the v2.0 protocol. In this article we will break down every single one of them and the key differences from the previous v1.0 protocol.
