Beam 2020 Week #32 - Web Wallet Unleashed
Covering July 3rd - August 9th 2020
An exciting week coming to the Beam community with the latest releases joining the ever expanding ecosystem. Both the Web Wallet Chrome extension, launched in testnet to allow our vast community a preview of things to come, and the Wallet Service join the product family. Together they will make Beam more easily accessible, opening the doors to endless possibilities for 3rd party integrations, and no doubt, be front and centre of Beam's Confidential DeFi platform.
You can also check out the documentation for the Wallet Service, which provides an in-depth explanation of it’s functions, and how to build it.
