VeChain has launched a revolutionary solution that it believes will pave the way for mass adoption of decentralized apps (dApps). The application, known as Sync 2, will allow blockchain-based applications to run smoothly as web applications on all operating systems and device types.
The VeChain Foundation announced Sync 2 in a blog post, describing it as “a first for the blockchain industry.” He believes Sync 2 is the missing puzzle piece that will finally bring dApps to the masses by removing all barriers to entry.
Digital wallet for the DApp era
In today’s digital age, using a web-based application is extremely easy. However, using dApps is a bit complicated and users may have to switch between certain browsers and device types to access them. Additionally, dApp users have to manage the cryptocurrencies they use to pay gas fees.
The VeChain Foundation is trying to end this complexity with its new digital wallet application. In his blog post he stated:
Our newly developed digital wallet application Sync 2, along with core protocols such as VIP-191 (fee delegation) and VIP-201 (DaaS), provides the missing critical pieces of infrastructure to drive true mass adoption of dApp technology.
The application eliminates the burden of managing cryptocurrencies to pay gas fees, thanks to integration with VeChain’s native fee authorization protocols. Instead, dApp service providers will be able to pay gas fees on behalf of a user.
Wallet app can work with all common web browsers including Safari, Chrome, Firefox and MS Edge. You can install it as an application on your device or use it as a web application.
How does Sync 2 work?
When a user needs to sign a transaction, dApp automatically calls the Sync 2 wallet app to appear in the background. The Foundation also announced:
If DApp cannot find the existence of a native Sync 2 application, it will try to run Sync 2 as a web application or more specifically as a single page application (SPA). Simply put, there will be a pop-up webpage that loads and runs Sync 2 right away.
Connex 2 will provide the necessary application programming interfaces (APIs) for developers to interact with the VeChain blockchain. It will also allow developers to intuitively use unique features such as multitasking transaction and fee delegation protocols.
Sync 2 and Connex 2 alpha testing is now open for developers. However, the Foundation cautioned that the two new tools should not be used beyond their development purposes. It should also not be used as a daily wallet or fund management tool.
With the launch of new tools, VeChain is trying to achieve its goal of surpassing Ethereum as the leading dApp blockchain. CEO Sunny Lu has previously announced that this is his ultimate goal.
