Simplifying Wallet-as-a-Service Selection, A Guide for Web3 Enterprises

Jack R. Mitchell

Magic’s Wallet-as-a-Service guide highlights key factors like wallet types, onboarding simplicity, and branding integration.


Magic, a leading Wallet-as-a-Service provider (WaaS), has published a detailed guide designed as an essential resource for businesses embarking on their Web3 journey. Providing insights on crucial aspects such as the distinction between non-custodial and custodial wallets, streamlined onboarding processes, and the integration of white-label solutions:

“Whether you’re embarking on the nascent stages of a Web3 project and evaluating wallet options for the first time or seeking a new WaaS provider replacement, this resource is designed to equip you with the knowledge to make the best decision for your business.”

WaaS offerings equip enterprises with the necessary tools for integrating blockchain wallets, simplifying the management of digital transactions and assets. This guide from Magic emerges as a timely resource in an environment where the right WaaS provider can significantly impact a business’s Web3 strategy.

Non-Custodial vs. Custodial

One of the guide’s highlights is the comparison between non-custodial and custodial wallets, which forms a critical decision point for businesses. Non-custodial wallets, preferred for their ability to give users complete control over their digital assets, alleviate businesses from the regulatory complexities tied to asset management.

In contrast, custodial wallets, which involve a third party in asset management, bring their own set of challenges and risks, especially concerning legal and compliance issues — does “not your keys, not your crypto” ring a bell? Based on a user’s needs, it becomes imperative to make the right choice and Magic’s guide helps do exactly that:

“Users are therefore empowered to elect to choose their security preferences rather than be beholden to opaque counterparty risks.”

Easy Onboarding?

Addressing one of the common hurdles in Web3 adoption, the guide emphasizes the importance of a simplified onboarding process. Traditional wallet setups are often complex and user-unfriendly.

WaaS solutions, particularly those like Magic’s, aim to alleviate these issues by integrating seamless and familiar login mechanisms, enhancing the overall user experience. However, choosing the right wallet is not simple and each wallet comes with its own set of hurdles and advantages, laid out in this guide.

White Labels

The guide also sheds light on the significance of white-labeling within the WaaS landscape. This feature allows businesses to infuse their branding into the wallet experience, fostering a consistent and trustworthy environment for users.

The degree of customization and control over branding varies among WaaS providers, a consideration that the guide urges businesses to closely examine their needs because:

“While some may only support basic customizations, others provide comprehensive branding and design control, allowing for a more extensive and tailored integration of your business’s identity.”

Magic’s guide is set to offer the community a detailed roadmap for companies exploring WaaS options. With objective overviews of the critical elements to consider when choosing a WaaS provider, it will help users make an informed choice that ranges from technical requirements to user experience considerations.
