Here are Arcana Network’s notable features

Onboarding:

Arcana Auth covers the three stages of a new user onboarding, reducing it from a few hours to less than 5 mins.

  1. Multiple Login Methods: Arcana supports passwordless logins through magic links, Google, FB, Twitter, Twitch, discord, and Github, with more coming soon.

  2. No installation Needed: Web Wallet ships with the front-end SDK. Users do not need to install any apps/extensions.

  3. Gasless Transactions: Developers can pay gas on behalf of their users to avoid users having to load ETH/Matic in their wallets. 

  4. Fiat Onramp: Users can buy crypto right from their wallet with On-ramp integrations to interact with the app

UX: We support customisable UX options like:

  1. Plug & Play: Arcana ships with a better plug-and-play login UI than competitors

  2. No-UI/UI Mode: Developers can show/hide the wallet UI based on their target users and how much of the web3 complexity needs to be introduced to their users

  3. Lower User Friction: Web wallet has better UX and usability, leading to lower support tickets from users

  4. Feature Rich: Web wallet ships with all the features users need to interact with a blockchain: Send/Receive Tokens, Sign/Approve transactions & messages, Add/Switch Networks, Add custom tokens, view transaction history etc

  5. Private Key Export: Users can export their private keys right from within the web wallet, without having to install any extensions or apps, to gain self-custody of their keys

  6. Delete Private Keys: Users can ask the DKG nodes to forget their private keys. This massively increases user trust and guarantees that their keys are truly self-custodial once exported and deleted.

Ecosystem Support:

In addition to just offering an Auth product, Arcana can help leverage its network and ecosystem to help you across product, engineering, partnerships, developer adoption, and marketing.  This support is already being provided to many customers. One such customer is  Dynamic.xyz, an a16z funded startup building a wallet aggregator.

Using our auth would also seamlessly integrate with the rest of Arcana’s SDKs

  • Arcana Store: Storage that is more performant than IPFS for storing content like NFT images, metadata etc

  • Arcana Access: On-chain Access Control that supports token gating and dynamic rules-based access, enabled through DIDs, is a global standard. Useful for storing player profiles, hosting exclusive content etc

The same seamless integration will also be available for our future products for Push Notifications, databases, CDN, etc.

Pricing

  • 2X Free Tier: Twice the number of MAUs (Monthly Active Users) in its free plan compared to competitors, at 2000 MAUs/mo. An MAU is anyone who sign-ins in a given month

  • Competitive Pricing: Post the free tier, the price is set to $0.025 per MAU, making it one of the most affordable Social Auth solutions in Web3.

  • Platform Credits: Arcana also offers generous platform credits that can be used to offset the monthly bills under its paid plan. Reach out to us to apply for the credits program.

2. Magic Link

Magic is a great platform with a great design for developers who need a out of the box solution. It is pretty expensive when you scale beyond 1000 MAUs.
