In the latest episode of the SlateCast podcast, host Liam ‚Akiba‘ Wright discussed the importance of user safety in the world of Web3 and the need for tools to help users stay safe when interacting with apps and applications. Ricardo from Web3 Builders, a company that is dedicated to making Web3 secure for all, was a guest on the show.
Ricardo explained that Web3 Builders is focused on building products that keep end-users safe, particularly from scams. He emphasized the importance of end-user security as a barrier to crypto adoption going forward. To that end, Web3 Builders has developed TrustCheck, a B2C offering that is a free Chrome browser extension designed to work with any EIP 1193 compliant wallet.
TrustCheck works by intercepting the transaction message when a user is interacting with Web3 tech and running an analysis on a series of checks to ensure that nothing is off with the transaction. It also runs a simulation of the transaction to determine the outcome before the user completes it. If something is off, the user is warned. If everything is in order, all the checks that have been run are displayed to give the user more confidence when interacting and completing a transaction.
The host and guest discussed the improved usability and end-user security that TrustCheck and other new and early-stage startups are bringing to the space. Ricardo believes that usability needs to be improved in order for more people to trust Web3 so that adoption can grow. By building products that keep users safe, Web3 Builders is making it easier for people to engage with the technology and use their crypto assets with confidence.
