When the new wallet is released for developers and users to test, ArcBlock senior engineer Wang Shijun answered the following questions --

What is the original intention of the development of ABT Web Wallet?

To improve user experience. At present, the native version of ABT Wallet requires frequent QR code scanning and the web version of ABT Wallet will make the user experience better without reducing security or reducing functions. The ABT Wallet follows exactly the same protocol as the native version of ABT Wallet and will eventually have the same functionality.

Who are the major users of ABT Web Wallet, developers or digital currency users?

ABT Web Wallet serves developers at this stage. We hope developers can debug Blocklet without leaving their computers or even their browsers. But finally, ABT Web Wallet will serve all users in the entire ArcBlock ecosystem, including ABT Node operators, Blocklet operators, resource miners, developers, and end-users to help them manage tokens, NFT, digital identities, and verifiable certificates just like the native ABT Wallet.

What are the differences between ABT Wallet and MetaMask Wallet?

ArcBlock's ABT Wallet and Ethereum's MetaMask wallet are two different entrances of ecosystems, both of which are completely offline wallets. In our Rollup solution, ABT Wallet may have Ethereum support similar to MetaMask.

How to use ABT Web Wallet and mobile wallet together?

The ABT Web Wallet is fully compatible with the native wallet, which means users and developers can import and export data back and forth between the two wallets.
