Web3 application developers can easily provide instant, non-custodial wallets to their users by integrating with the Arcana Auth SDK. This removes the need for users to install a separate wallet, back up their keys, or navigate the process of buying cryptocurrency. Instead, users can sign blockchain transactions directly within the application using the embedded web wallet widget, without the need for any browser extensions.

The Arcana wallet offers a user-friendly, secure, and customizable interface that can be branded to match your application. Users do not need to generate or manage their cryptographic keys or remember any passphrases. The wallet is built using the state-of-the-art asynchronous, distributed key generation protocol which allows users to have full control over their wallets and abstracts the complexity of cryptography. With the Arcana wallet, Web3 application users can experience true self-sovereign decentralized identity.

Supported Web3 Wallet Operations

  • Check account balance
  • Sign blockchain transactions
  • Add, and modify the network configuration
  • Switch to a different network
  • Deploy smart contract to a specific network
  • Add, send, and receive custom tokens (ERC-20) and NFTs (ERC-721 and ERC-1155)
  • View account transaction activity such as how many native, custom tokens or NFTs were transacted or contracts deployed
  • Use the provider interface to call any standard Ethereum JSON RPC specification methods
  • Export private key and use it to import Arcana wallet account to a third-party Web3 provider


In the future, the Arcana wallet may also allow application users to permit application developers and see their profile data such as email ID, profile picture, and user name.

Not Supported

The Arcana wallet does not allow an app user to import any blockchain account created using a third-party wallet provider.

Wallet Usage Configuration

Arcana wallet can be configured at the time of integrating the application with the Arcana Auth SDK. While instantiating a new AuthProvider, the developer can choose one of the available wallet user experiences for signing blockchain transactions through the alwaysVisible input parameter. See Arcana wallet visibility mode and the Arcana wallet configuration guide for details.

Network Switching Behavior

Depending upon the Arcana wallet visibility mode setting configured by the developer, the network switching behavior may vary.

Adding Networks

The Arcana wallet comes pre-configured with some of the popular blockchain networks such as Ethereum and Polygon. Other supported blockchain network configurations can be added programmatically to the wallet by application developers.

These additional network settings are stored and retained across user login sessions. If the developer has configured the Arcana wallet visibility mode to alwaysVisible=true, then the wallet is always visible in the applications' context. Users can use the wallet UI to add new network configurations and switch to a different network than the one that the developer has provided by default. This is not possible if the alwaysVisible=false setting is used during the Arcana Auth SDK integration. In this case, the wallet shows up only when a user has to approve a blockchain transaction and disappears after a user action. For more details, see Arcana wallet visibility modes and network switching behavior.

Custom Network Added by Users

Only the list of networks configured by the developer programmatically or via the dashboard settings is persisted across the user login sessions. Any additional blockchain network configuration changes introduced by the application users via the Arcana wallet UI are only stored locally. Users must re-configure those custom network configurations each time they log in.
