The Argentine bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrency exchange, gravel, launched Portal. It is a wallet compatible with the smart contracts of Ethereum and other networks, which allows interaction with decentralized applications and the web3.
CriptoNoticias tested the application (which can be accessed in beta mode from the Ripio’s website) and some of its characteristics are detailed in this text.
First of all, it should be mentioned that it is a web browser extension. Like the popular Ethereum wallet, Metamask, it is installed in Google Chrome and thus allows interaction with decentralized finance protocols (DeFi), non-fungible token (NFT) marketplaces, etc.
Unlike Metamask and most wallets, it does not offer the ability to regain access to the account using the 12 or 24 seed words. But this does not mean that it is a wallet custodial. In other words, in this wallet the user does not delegate the possession of the cryptocurrencies to a third party. gravel has explained that is about a wallet with MPC technology (multi party computing) and uses a multi-signature system.
At the usage level, It is quite similar to other wallets of its type (Chrome extension) and it is very intuitive to send cryptocurrencies, receive them or connect to applications. We tested connecting it to Ethereum’s decentralized exchange, Uniswap, and it was accomplished in seconds via the “injected» that the exchange provides.
The new wallet of gravel Provides compatibility with both the Ethereum mainnet and Polygon. The latter is a sidechain with much cheaper commissions and faster transaction processing speed.
