As we move into the second quarter of the year, we have some exciting updates to share with you all. In the first quarter of 2023, we focused on improving our product features based on user feedback and conducting experiments to enhance the overall user experience. In this blog post, we will cover the key feature updates, user feedback, experiments, learnings, collaborations, and upcoming features.
Key Feature Updates
We have released several new features that will make your experience more enjoyable, efficient, and safer. Here are a few notable ones:
Multi Wallet Connect
As we spoke to many of our users we understood that many of them use more than one wallet that they wanted to track and track across all of them together. Thus was born multi wallet connect that allows one to connect multiple wallets together.
Seedless Recovery based on MPC or Multi-Party computation is a simple cryptographic scheme that involves multiple participants.
With Silence Labs, we have come up with a way of doing this, where we split the user’s seed phrase into three parts which are encrypted and can be stored in 3 different places. To restore your wallet, all you need is 2 out of the 3 parts.
To know more about why do you need it and how does it work, check out this blog: https://www.obvious.technology/blogs/how-to-use-seedless-recovery
Users can now buy crypto with fiat through various payment options, directly into their wallet.
Additional currency options
In February 2023, we included a way to view your portfolio in your own currency. This month, we added more currency choices! It's now simpler to monitor the value of your assets and investments.
Improved dAPP Interactions
You can now easily access and interact with decentralized applications (dAPPs) on the Obvious app.
Need more control over your NFTs? Our app now has the feature to send and burn NFTs directly from your mobile app!
The ‘Send NFT’ feature allows you to transfer your NFT to another wallet address, directly from the Obvious app. With this, you can now directly control your digital assets in your wallets from a single app rather than having to use multiple platforms for different use cases.
With the ‘Burn NFTs’ feature, you can remove the NFT from your collection which makes it totally inaccessible to everyone. There is usually no cost to burn an NFT, but you will need to pay a gas fee to send your NFT to the burn address.
You can share payment proofs easily with Transaction Receipts. It supports multiple local currencies and NFT transfers as well.
Added support for ARB token
We added support for the Arbitrum native token ARB that was launched on 23 Mar this year.
Boba network support
We added support for the Boba Network which is is an open-source blockchain scaling solution.
We have made the app faster and smoother by removing sluggishness through performance and usability improvements. Doing transactions becomes much easier and faster now.
Looking ahead, we have some exciting features in the pipeline that we plan to release in the coming months!
