Explore the design space to achieve interoperability for embedded wallets, including but not limited to privacy considerations, permissions management (e.g. for app- and session keys), and tooling that helps users manage multiple accounts across dapps and chains.
This year, embedded wallets have emerged as a low-friction way for dapps to onboard users without requiring them to already have EOA wallets. Providers like Lit, Privy, and Magic allow users to authenticate with an app via their method of choice (socials, email, SMS, EOAs) and generates app-specific embedded wallets which can be coupled with smart account implementations to enable AA features.
However, this pattern leads us towards a fractured asset and identity management experience across dapps. While app-specific wallets are desirable for certain use-cases such as games, there are many instances where users might onboard to their first dapp, create an embedded wallet with their web2 signers or Passkey, and want to use the assets they accrue in that account on another dapp by logging in with the same signer.
This workshop session aims to explore the design space for interoperability for embedded wallets, including but not limited to privacy considerations, permissions management (e.g. for app- and session keys), and tooling that helps users manage multiple accounts across dapps and chains.
