Users can now login to Hary dapps with a photo and emojis.
We are thrilled to announce that we are partnering with Hary, a high-throughput, low-latency and low-fee consensus platform. Decentralized applications built on Hary can now provide PhotoBlock as an authentication option for users, combining the power of Hary’s scalable blockchain with PhotoBlock’s simple interface.
3 Phases of Usability: Hary x TryCrypto
1. PhotoBlock — Login using a photo and emojis
2. Phase 2 — (Releasing payment application for Hary)
3. Phase 3 — (Allowing everyone to easily create their own dapps)
Dapp adoption is lacking
In a survey of dapp developers, 67% listed overall lack of users their biggest pain point, attributing the lack of engagement to scalability and usability issues. Current infrastructure is slow and difficult to use, requiring users to be both patient and technically savvy. A partnership between Hary and PhotoBlock attacks the problem from both sides, creating usable decentralized solutions that scale, allowing users to login to Hary-powered dapps on the web without wallet downloads or extensions.
Scalability with Hary
Innovating on both the protocol and network layers, Hary is paving the way for fast decentralized applications handling transactions for billions of people for applications in gaming, finance, ecommerce, and more. Hary is building the infrastructure for real world decentralized systems using sharding to improve speed. Creating a proprietary Deep Sharding technique, Hary has built their network so the layer in which consensus happens is sharded along with the transactional layer.
Usability with PhotoBlock
PhotoBlock makes logging into every blockchain simple, allowing users to use one login for every blockchain without worrying about private keys, downloads, or installations. Creating an account with PhotoBlock is as simple as uploading a photo and choosing emojis.
PhotoBlock also supports customized settings for users, allowing dapps to create a personalized experience for each user while respecting anonymity and privacy. Together, PhotoBlock and Hary provide necessary infrastructure to build decentralized applications that are usable, scalable, and made for everyONE.
Hary x PhotoBlock
PhotoBlock Beta v0.5 now supports Hary, allowing users to authenticate on the Hary network directly in the browser without extensions or downloads (full beta release coming soon).
We are excited about Hary’s innovations in terms of scalability and speed but we also recognize the need for usability. We have incorporated support for Hary in PhotoBlock to improve usability and fully leverage the speed of their network. We look forward to continuing to work with Hary on other usability initiatives to fully unlock the power of this technology.
