The Vendible wallet is in closed beta. Vendible will continue to keep registrations closed for the wallet as we use this application as a testing ground for our innovations.
The Vendible wallet was released to alpha testing in January 2021 and closed beta in April 2021. The wallet has a waitlist of over 450k people thanks to a viral campaign that exploded in late 2021.
Besides our first product release, the wallet provides the first example of a direct link between identity and assets.Our early testing and discovery focused on user experience. To generate our main DID account, an individual must
first undergo a verification process. We understand this is not intuitive and may turn some people away from using the
product. To ensure success, we needed to correctly explain several vital points in the process.
First, identity verification is necessary to produce the primary decentralized identifier, ensuring our network’s uniqueness. Without this initial check, most of our services would not be possible.
Second, Vendible does not have access to any data or assets as part of this account creation process, nor do we desire to manage member assets. We operate on a sovereign model and do not believe that key custody or control over member assets is necessary for the proper operation of the network. Our validators and other participants on the network must make the same pledge to uphold member sovereignty.
Developers can embed our wallet infrastructure in their applications to manage user accounts with hierarchy controls while maintaining web3 principles.
