Web3 game platform ImmutableX has announced Immutable Passport, an onboarding solution designed for game studios. The company stated that this new wallet and authentication solution aims to remove Web3 onboarding hurdles and offers game developers access to marketplaces, gamers, and scalable infrastructure.
Passport offers a non-custodial solution that never holds the user’s private keys nor is involved in signing transactions. ImmutableX claims game studios will be able to drive adoption across mainstream audiences, maintain enterprise-grade security, and access player analytics using Passport.
On the other hand, players get access to a secure digital wallet, protection against fraud, and seamless authentication across Web3 games and marketplaces. Immutable Passport also helps gamers create and secure unique online identities to travel across Web3.
Immutable President and Co-Founder, Robbie Ferguson, commented:
“For Web3 gaming to reach a billion players, onboarding must be invisible, secure, and work across any game: mobile, console or desktop. Until now, security and friction have been tradeoffs. Passport is a self-custodial wallet where users can sign in with just an email and one-time password. It will be a game changer for players and radically reduce user acquisition costs.
“More than that, just like a Gamertag or a Steam account, Immutable Passport offers unified identity, transaction, and authentication functionalities that simply haven’t existed in the Web3 gaming space until now. We can’t wait to introduce our partners to the power of Immutable Passport.”
Immutable stated that its platform-exclusive titles, Guild of Guardians and Gods Unchained, will be among the first games to integrate Immutable Passport at launch. Immutable Passport, scheduled to launch in April 2023, will also grant players and developers unified access to the Immutable ecosystem, including all marketplaces, tools, and more.
