The most powerful financial tools available live on the blockchain. The problem is, only crypto aficionados currently have access to these decentralized financial protocols like Kyber, Uniswap, Maker, and Compound. So, how can we serve the investing, trading and borrowing needs of non-crypto users, abstracting the complexities of the blockchain to bring DeFi to the world?
Itamar Lesuisse and Julien Niset are the cofounders of Argent, the first smart wallet for Ethereum-based cryptocurrencies and apps. Today, they join us to discuss how the team identified wallets as the biggest problem to solve in the space, landing on smart contracts as the best way to circumvent the need for users to remember a seed phrase. Itamar and Julien walk us through the two user types, owners and guardians, describing how Argent creates a smart contract wallet around a particular externally-owned account or EOA.
Itamar and Julien go on to offer an overview of the Argent wallet architecture and the different types of contracts it supports, explaining how to create new modules on the platform and sharing examples of modules that integrate with—and provide access to—the best DeFi protocols. They also cover the Argent auditing process as well as the team’s plan around navigating regulations. Listen in to understand Itamar and Julien’s aim to onboard millions of non-crypto users, abstracting the complexities of the blockchain to serve as a gateway to the decentralized web.
