With the development of web3, security issues have come to the fore. Phishing scams are increasing, and various attack techniques have emerged. A web2 platform does not relate the user’s account to the wallet address, leading to a possible risk of scams and a disjointed user experience. Scammers could impersonate popular personalities or project admins after a user publicly asks for community help, and trick the user into sending funds.
Sending.Network aims to solve this issue by combining messaging along with verification to authenticate wallets and contract owners.
Below we provide a specific use case describing how the user gets verified support from authenticated project customer service in a wallet app.
