The Gamertag for Web3 and the Immutable Passport are designed to facilitate entry into Web3 gaming.
Immutable, the web3 gaming firm behind Gods Unchained and Guild of Guardians, and the ImmutableX game-optimized blockchain, launched the “Immutable Passport” on January 31.
The Passport is designed to be a “one-stop shop wallet, player profile, onboarding, and authentication solution” for web3 gaming. According to Immutable’s customer study, “ease of onboarding, security, compliance, and plug & play capabilities” were the primary emphasis of web3 game companies.
“Passport offers a non-custodial solution that never holds the user’s private keys nor is involved in signing transactions… Players get access to a secure digital wallet, protection against fraud, and seamless authentication across web3 games and marketplaces.”
I hope the Passport becomes as synonymous with web3 gaming as Gamertag, Steam ID, PSN ID, or Apple ID was with web2. Web3 user experience is notoriously terrible, with web3 gaming frequently being the exception. Immutable “aims to reduce web3 onboarding obstacles” by simplifying account setup and administration. Web2 apps are tailored for a good user experience.
Robbie Ferguson, the co-founder of Immutable, stated,
“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.”
Immutable Passport will be integrated into Guild of Guardians and Gods Unchained upon launch, according to an Immutable release.
