Developer platform for building web3 apps with no blockchain expertise

WalletKit is a developer platform that abstracts away the complexities of blockchain tech and provides simple HTTP APIs. It is best suited for building user-friendly consumer apps focused on mass adoption. WalletKit gives you the tools and APIs to build with the most popular building blocks in blockchain: wallets, tokens, and NFTs. These flexible building blocks can be put together to create meaningful user experiences, whether it's for rewards and loyalty, gaming, payments, or anything else you can imagine. If you are building decentralized consumer products, come talk to us!

⏳ TLDR; WalletKit is a developer platform, that helps you build decentralized apps without any crypto knowledge. It is best used for building user-friendly consumer apps aimed at mass adoption. Come talk to us if you’re building in this space or if you’re curious about adding decentralized features to your product.

Hey everyone! This is @Tushar Soni and @Qinyu Tong from @WalletKit, and we are super excited to tell you what we’ve been working on.

🤔 Problem

Crypto has gone through several ups and downs in its decade-long history. However, we have yet to build meaningful use cases outside of trading. There are a few reasons that are slowing us down:

  1. Low Adoption: People find crypto products hard to use, confusing, risky, or scammy. We believe this is because it is incredibly difficult to build trusted brands and high-quality user experiences that everyone has come to expect from the products they use.
  2. High Complexity: Blockchain is a collection of really complicated technology and building consumer products directly on top of it will take a lot of expertise and a long time.
    Imagine trying to build a Rewards & Loyalty Program - you have to pick a chain, work with smart contracts, figure out how users will manage their wallets, handle transactions, reorgs, gas management, and so much more. You have to do this while making sure everything is done securely so you and your users don’t lose their digital assets.
  3. Developer Tooling: The popular developer platforms are too low-level. They are usually a mirror of Blockchain Node APIs aimed at node operations, not building consumer apps.

Our goal is to elevate the developer experience for building decentralized consumer apps and enable builders to focus on their use case, not blockchain infrastructure.

🔧 Solution

We are rethinking how to build decentralized apps by providing engineers with simple high-level abstractions to create amazing products.

WalletKit wraps popular blockchain building blocks into easy-to-use HTTP APIs. Today, we support building with wallets, tokens, and NFTs.

We took it a step further with WalletKit Dashboard - a digital asset management tool for your app-related digital assets. Use WalletKit Dashboard to create wallets, tokens, mint NFTs, make transfers, and interact with user wallets.

👽 Founders

Qinyu and I met at Robinhood, where we led the Web3 team responsible for building Robinhood Wallet. We experienced firsthand the lack of tools and infrastructure needed to build a consumer-friendly product.

It became clear to us that this gap in infrastructure is holding back the entire community from creating amazing products that have a chance at mass adoption. It acts as a barrier for founders to build decentralized products. WalletKit aims to remove this barrier entirely.
