How can Portis help my dApp?
By creating a frictionless user experience, Portis helps drive adoption and conversion rate for your dApp. Users can access the same secure account from different devices, no installations required.
Who can join?
Anyone who created a dApp is welcome to add Portis and begin communicating with smart contracts straight from the browser.
Do I need a server to run Portis?
Who keeps the private keys?
When users register, they create a wallet client-side and then immediately encrypt the private key using a secret which never leaves their device. We save it for them, but since it's encrypted - they maintain absolute control over it. We designed the security architecture so that transactions can be signed on any modern browser, meaning users can enjoy a familiar and easy experience without the risk of any unauthorized activity.
Where can I find out more about the actual code?
We want to involve developers as much as possible, which is why the Portis SDK code is open source. Portis is in active development. We’re looking for quality input from people who are just as excited about the potential of blockchain as we are - we welcome you to join the discussion on our gitter channel.
How much does it cost?
Absolutely nothing! You are simply offering your users a convenient gateway to the Etereum blockchain. We even gift each new account with $1 worth of Ether, for a truly frictionless first time experience. Your users can top up their account with Ether using their credit card, in a simple and familar manner.
