Wallets are one of the first and most important user onboarding experiences to start using blockchains and decentralized applications. Sender provides an all-in-one and effortless wallet solution that serves as a gateway to the wider NEAR ecosystem.
The $50,000 grant will help Sender to continue to innovate on the NEAR experience with in-wallet features. Today, Sender offers users NEAR native asset management, in-wallet staking, integration of NFTs, instant swaps, implicit account creation, and optimized asset security.
“NEAR has put a strong focus on accessibility and user-friendliness when designing its features. In the last year, the NEAR ecosystem has been growing at an exciting speed and scale. With the launch of Sender Wallet, we hope to provide existing and new NEAR users the opportunity to use a solid crypto wallet on-the-go,” said Kenny, Founder at Sender Labs.
“We’re very excited to support the growth of Sender Wallet as part of the NEAR ecosystem,” said Illia Polosukhin, Co-Founder of NEAR Protocol. “Delivering accessible, secure wallet experiences to users is critical for achieving mainstream adoption of Web3. Sender is taking the right approach and I know we’ll see great things from the team.”
