DApps, DApps, Dapps!
The recent months have seen the rapid growth of Wanchain’s ecosystem of DApps from projects such as FinNexus, RiveX, and the Wanchain dev team itself. Up until now, the interfaces for these DApps have been available through the desktop wallet and web versions only. That all changes with the newest WanWallet mobile wallet release — now you can use all those Wanchain DApps on the go!
In addition to general UI and language improvements, the 3.0 release treats WanWallet users to the newly added Wanchain DApp store which features all the same DApps currently available in the desktop wallet plus one all new mobile exclusive DApp to reward mobile users for their wait!
Currently available WanWallet DApps:
- WRDEX — Decentralized cross-chain exchange from RiveX
- Bitllywood Dex — Decentralized cross-chain exchange from Bitllywood
- ALL NEW!!! — Red Packet (currently mobile exclusive)
“Red Packets” — A Fun and Social New Way to Send Crypto
The name “Red Packet” comes from the Chinese traditions of giving money in red envelopes at festivals and special occasions. Popular Chinese mobile payment applications such as the popular Alipay, Wechat Pay, and many others have adapted this into a modern mobile application feature which allows users to send cash inside “Red Packets” to individuals or groups. WanWallet now brings this feature into the world of blockchain.
Red Packets have a number of cool features which make them different from a direct transfer of assets. Wanchain’s crypto version of the Red Packet includes the following features:
- You don’t need the address of the recipient:
Simply generate and send the Red Packet code to someone in a private message, and they will then be able to use the code to redeem the assets directly to their wallet. There is no need for them to share their address in advance.
- You can generate a single Red Packet code which can be redeemed by multiple people:
This can create opportunities for fun interactions and social engagement by generating a Red Packet code which can be redeemed a number of times specified by you to a group chat where people can compete to see who can redeem the Red Packet codefirst.
- When generating a Red Packet code with multiple redeems, you can choose either the same amount of tokens for each redeem, or a random amount:
This allows for fun games in groups where you can play to see who wins the most, or use it for decision making (to decide who goes first in a game, or who gets to pick up the dinner bill, etc.)
- A Red Packet code will eventually expire and the assets will return to the wallet of the person who generated it if it is not redeemed after a time limit:
This ensures that assets you send will not be lost in case you send it to an inaccessible or inactive account. It also allows for the interesting social use case where you can send a Red Packet code to a friend as an offer (for example, to pay for dinner), and your friend has the opportunity to redeem and accept it, or wait for it time out and return to you.
- You can also generate a Referral Red Packet code which rewards users for sharing the code
By incentivizing the sharing of your code, you can make your Red Packet spread virally!
Try out the Red Packet DApp and see if you can come up with any other fun and interesting Red Packet use cases! Also check out the rest of the DApps in the WanWallet mobile wallet DApp store and feel free to share any feedback in the official Wanchain Telegram chat and/or Twitter.
