Immutable Passport: A New Wallet Infrastructure

Immutable, a web 3.0 game publisher, has recently launched its new wallet infrastructure, dubbed Immutable Passport. This login method allows users to create and recover their wallet using either a Google or Apple account, or an email address.

At present, five games and apps have adopted Immutable Passport, including Gods Unchained, Blocklete Golf, B/R Watch 2 Earn, TokenTrove and AtomicHub. These apps have a combined user base of over 500,000 people.

In addition, Immutable has also unveiled a dashboard that will be automatically displayed after logging in. This dashboard provides players with the ability to find new games, store and add funds, link 3rd party wallets, and manage all their in-game items in one place.

As per a consumer study conducted by Immutable in August, gamers are twice as likely to sign up for a wallet using Immutable Passport than a traditional wallet.

In May, Cointelegraph spoke with Immutable to learn more about how Passport secures users’ funds when they log in via email. They use the Magic SDK to generate a private key, which is then encrypted and sent to an Amazon Web Services Hardware Security Module (HSM). Neither Immutable nor Magic have access to this key as access to the HSM is only granted with a device-specific token sent to the user through email. Thus, Immutable considers Passport a “noncustodial” login solution, because it does not require users to trust Immutable with their web 3.0 funds.

The launch of Passport is part of Immutable’s effort to make Web 3.0 gaming more convenient for players. On Dec. 11, they integrated Transak as a payment option for their games. Then, on Dec. 13, they announced that a gas-free transaction option would be available for their zkEVM platform in 2024.
