TL;DR: Mural is proud to announce our latest feature: Digital Signatures. This new feature changes how you interact with our platform, combining ease of use and enhanced security. Using passkey technology, Digital Signatures allows you to approve transactions with your fingerprint or facial recognition. Now, all you need to use Mural is your device and a bank account.

Our Vision Behind Digital Signatures

From hundreds of hours of demos, discovery calls, and onboardings, we found that businesses deeply care about security of funds and ease of access.  As such, we have built powerful functionality that allow you to use Mural with your biometrics such as your fingerprint or facial recognition to approve all sensitive actions.  Additionally, there is now no need to have prior blockchain experience or knowledge, you can simply get started and see it for yourself.

Previously, using Mural required an external wallet from a third party, such as MetaMask or WalletConnect. This requirement often deterred potential users, causing them to avoid trying stablecoin payments. Mural's Digital Signatures are here to change that.

We've seamlessly blended convenience and efficiency to offer an innovative solution that simplifies onboarding and transaction approval processes and significantly bolsters security. We aim to make financial operations effortless and secure for our users, integrating cutting-edge technology to elevate the Mural experience.

What are the Benefits?

  • Enhanced Security: Digital Signatures use passkeys, ensuring robust security. Your credentials are stored on your device and never disclosed to Mural or any other website.

  • Biometric and PIN Approvals: Authenticate transactions using OS-level biometrics like FaceID and TouchID, or use PINs and lock screen patterns for added convenience.

  • Phishing Protection: Passkeys are domain-bound, significantly reducing the risk of phishing attacks.

  • Cross-Device Synchronization: Seamlessly sync your passkeys across devices with iCloud Keychain on Apple devices and Google Password Manager on Google devices.

How to Get Started

  • New Users: On signing up with Mural, you'll be prompted to set up a passkey-based Digital Signature.

  • Existing Users: Transition from imported wallets to passkey-based approvals with easy migration steps detailed in our docs.

  • Simplified Approval Process: Enjoy a streamlined transaction process without needing web-browser extension popups.

Conclusion

Mural's Digital Signatures mark a significant step forward in our mission to make stablecoin payments accessible, secure, and straightforward for everyone. By removing the need for external wallets and simplifying the onboarding process, we're opening doors for businesses of all sizes and technical backgrounds to integrate blockchain technology into their operations effortlessly.

We are committed to delivering strong user experiences and robust security. We have listened to your feedback, recognized the hurdles in adopting digital dollar payments, and responded with a solution that not only addresses these challenges but also sets a new standard in the industry. Digital Signatures embody our vision of a world where financial transactions are as simple as unlocking your phone - secure, immediate, and universally accessible.
