The platform’s new Immutable Passport is a wallet and authentication tool that streamlines onboarding for gamers via passwordless sign-on and automated wallet creation. By using the Passport, users will have a non-custodial solution that doesn’t keep their private keys or is involved in signing transactions.
Using Passport, game studios can drive adoption across mainstream audiences, maintain enterprise-grade security, and access meaningful player analytics. The Passport also helps gamers create and secure unique online identities that can travel across web3.
Immutable President and Co-Founder Robbie Ferguson said, “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.”
In addition, game studios that integrate Passport into their services will be given access to a large group of active players in the ImmutableX ecosystem. Partners will also gain access to various tools, infrastructure solutions and APIs in the Web3 ecosystem that’ll enable worldwide scalability.
Guild of Guardians and Gods Unchained. Two of Immutable’s exclusive games will be amongst the first to integrate Immutable Passport when it launches in April 2023.
