TokenPocket AMA | DAS: The one and only cross-chain DID now supports BSC. (Come and Check the Winners)

It’s a great honor for DAS to have Warren, Head of TokenPocket Community, as the presenter of this AMA on 22:00, Nov.22 (EST). Here is a recap of the AMA.

Warm-up Questions

1. Could you please introduce DAS to our community in layman’s terms? What can I do with DAS?

DAS is a cross-chain decentralized account system. DAS provides a globally unique account system with the .bit suffix. It can be used in scenes such as crypto transfers, domain name resolution, and identity authentication. DAS has strong cross-chain capabilities, supporting ETH/TRON/BSC and any other public chain address.

When using TokenPocket, an operation we often use is to transfer or receive money between different accounts, and we all use a long string of addresses, such as [0x…] for BSC users, or [T…] for Tron users, as shown in the figure.

I believe that in this process, few or no one will remember the above addresses, one because it is too long and difficult to remember, the second is also unnecessary.

Then I believe there will be many friends who will think of us when we use PayPal. We just need to know each other’s email or phone number to transfer money or receive money, how convenient, right?

Unlike the centralized account system in the web 2.0 world such as phone number/email/social account, DAS has developed a decentralized account system for web 3.0 based on blockchain, and it is globally unique and cross-chain. We use a suffix ending in .bit to identify this account, and in DAS account management you can associate all your blockchain addresses, whether they are ETH/TRON/BSC or any other public chain address.

Once you have a DAS account, and in TokenPocket which has integrated DAS you will find that this experience is really great, let’s see a sample picture and a video of how it works.

Click ‘Discover’ and search ‘DAS’ DApp or ‘da.systems’.

2. How many networks are supported by DAS? What efforts have you made to ensure the safety of your product?

At present, DAS already supports ETH, TRON, BSC, and we will accelerate access to public chains such as Polygon/Heco, even BTC/Doge/ShiB in the near future.

DAS is developed based on chain Nervos CKB, one of the biggest advantages is the cross-chain capability. I don’t know if you have noticed that during our experience with DAS, there was no requirement to use ckb throughout the whole process, which is exactly the advantage of nervos, although it took us a long time to adapt to the development architecture of nervos when we accessed it at the beginning.

DAS is now fully open-source, and you can access our open-source repository on our GitHub at:https://github.com/DeAccountSystems/Documents.

3. Can you show us how to use DAS on TokenPocket step by step? How long can I use my account after purchase?

TokenPocket is one of the earliest wallets that DAS started to deeply collaborate with. After this SDK integration is completed, we also provide a detailed tutorial, which has been shared earlier, so if you haven’t paid attention to it, you can check it out: https://dasystems.medium.com/?p=b89c780f3d8

Of course, you can contact us at any time with any questions during the experience, either through Discord, or Twitter.

We welcome any feedback and suggestions so we can improve the user experience.

When you purchase a DAS account, you can choose the length of time you want to hold the account. The current setting is 1-year minimum and 20 years maximum, and we will have a transition period of 1 month after the expiration. Therefore, it is necessary to do a good job in advance to remember the expiration date.

Selected Twitter Questions

Q1(@OlefiniJhon): What are the usages of any .bit accounts?

DAS stands for decentralized account system. It creates a human-readable on-chain identity instead of a wallet address to represent you in web3. All DAS accounts use the .bit suffix as a tribute to bitcoin, which is the pioneer and foundation for all things blockchain and web3.

DAS has several key use cases: you can use .bit to receive and send crypto, use it as a web presence (an example https://phone.bit.cc/ ), as log-in credentials for dApps.

Why is DAS a better solution?

A decentralized identity protocol as a foundational component of Web 3 should be highly compatible and easy to use.

This compatibility of DAS makes it the most inclusive name service, which is unmatched by ENS, Unstoppable Domains, and any other name system.

DAS allows users to register and manage the DAS accounts using ANY public chain address or even email, and it’s totally decentralized (here is why). For now, you can use your ETH/TRON/BSC address (and we are working on adding other public chains — Polygon/Avalanche/BTC/Doge/SHIB, etc in the near future) to register and manage the DAS account.

DAS is low-cost for users. ENS is the widely used name service but the users have to pay a high gas fee on registration and pay every time they want to modify the parsed record or transfer the ownership of the account. Users don’t need to worry about the gas fee when using DAS. (Below is a comparison of DAS vs ENS)

Q2(@ahmaddbijiz ): What are your plans for global expansion? Are you focusing on the market at this time or focus on building and developing or getting customers and users, or partnerships? Can you share some plans before the end of 2021 and for the coming year?

Our goal is to bring DID to everyone. The user base of DAS will grow as the number of active crypto users grows. In the first 4 months upon launch, we have seen over 14k unique addresses registered with 40k accounts.

The integration with both wallets (independent wallets, exchanges) and dApps will drive the adoption of DAS.

DAS provides a complete tool stack for simple integration. The source code for all the components can be found in our Github repository. We have an incentive mechanism to encourage partners to integrate with DAS and share 10~20% of registration fees with the corresponding roles in real-time implemented by smart contracts. Here are more details about the incentive program and integrations.

At the current stage, we have a secondary market, and more than 20 wallets and dApps have completed the integration with DAS, including TokenPocket, Huobi Wallet, imToken, BitKeep, HyperPay, AlphaWallet, and NFTSCAN, NFTGO, MIBAO, etc.

Q3(@oceansbaby_bit): In addition to the current domain name transfer function, has das considered doing promotion for other das functions, such as Internet web resolution, account login, etc.

Regarding the function of DAS, top wallets such as TokenPocket already have integrated DAS, so you can transfer assets with a .bit account in TokenPocket, which greatly enhances the experience and security.

Also, if you own phone.bit, you will automatically have [phone.bit.cc](https://phone.bit.cc), a decentralized homepage.

More application scenarios, such as log-in credentials for dApps, are the next focus of the DAS team in fact.

The current usefulness of DAS is already far ahead of many similar products.

Q4(@EvandaEscobar): With the recent buzz around metaverses, do y’all have any plans of integrating DAS as DID in several metaverses?

We are also actively exploring this direction of the metaverse and can share some of our thoughts.

For example, when we have created a role in a GameFi and have role data such as XP, if at this time we go to a new GameFi to create a role, can DAS help the user to do the binding directly to his game account.

Another example, giving a virtual idol (such as Hatsune Miku) a DAS account, interacting with the virtual idol through DAS, Hatsune Miku also needs a globally unique account in the virtual world.

And more, we see that there are many luxury brands that have been developing the meta-universe market. Can we create a DAS account for every Gucci bag as well? And so on.

Q5(@llrloll): Can you explain why All DAS accounts end in .bit? And also how do you ensure to us that the DAS account cannot be replicated?

All DAS accounts use the .bit suffix as a tribute to bitcoin, which is the pioneer and foundation for all things blockchain and web3.

at the same time.

.bit is the basic unit of information, the world of the future is the world of information, and bit is the basic building block of the information world, which is in line with the vision of DAS trying to be the infrastructure for Web 3.0.

.bit is neutral and not associated with any chain, which is in line with the cross-chain characteristic of DAS.

.bit is cool.
