Zug, Switzerland – January 18, 2024: Dock, a pioneer in the Reusable Digital ID and Verifiable Credentials space, announced that the DOCK token is now available on the Nova Wallet, a next-gen, decentralized, and self-custodial iOS/Android application for the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystem. This integration of the DOCK token marks a significant milestone for Dock and its community, as Nova Wallet's integration with Polkadot Vault provides the capability for secure cold storage and makes the token more widespread and accessible.
Nova Wallet’s goal is to provide a user-friendly mobile experience for tokens issued within the Polkadot Ecosystem. It currently supports over 80 networks and hundreds of assets. Their Polkadot Vault integration enhances the security of token storage with a cold storage solution that turns your old/unused iOS or Android device into a dedicated hardware wallet for Polkadot, Kusama, and other Polkadot-based chains.
DOCK is the native token of Dock’s blockchain network. The token is required to process operations on the Dock network, it enables holders to participate in governance and for use in staking and validating. DOCK token holders are part of a community helping to create a future internet built with identity ownership, privacy, and trusted data at its core.
Key Benefits of This Integration
- Cold Storage: Nova Wallet's Polkadot Vault integration provides enhanced security for your DOCK tokens. This feature turns your separate, unused mobile device into a hardware wallet. Your keys are kept secure (i.e. offline) at all times, and transactions are signed in an air-gapped way via QR-codes.
- Wider Reach and Community Growth: This integration increases awareness of the DOCK token among its extensive user base within the expansive Polkadot and Kusama ecosystems.
- User-Friendly: Nova Wallet users can now easily access and manage their DOCK tokens directly from their mobile devices, significantly lowering the entry barrier for new users interested in engaging with the tokens.
- Improved Security: Because of the self-custodial nature of Nova Wallet, users gain full control over their private keys and DOCK tokens. This aligns with Dock’s values of prioritizing security and user sovereignty, ensuring that users’ assets are safeguarded with security technology.
"We are happy to be adding support for the DOCK network and token – the integration into Nova Wallet will drastically improve the user experience for token holders. The addition of DOCK to Polkadot Vault will also significantly improve asset security for the DOCK token holder community by providing them with a secure, offline and air-gapped cold storage hardware wallet." said Valentin Sergeev, Co-Founder of Nova Wallet.
“We’re excited about this new chapter with Nova Wallet because it aligns perfectly with our goal of making DOCK tokens more accessible, user-friendly, and secure for everyone. This collaboration and shared vision for a decentralized future is a significant step towards expanding our community,” said Elina Cadouri, Dock’s Co-Founder and COO.
The DOCK token integration is just the beginning of a journey towards a stronger community around the Dock ecosystem as we work towards our mission to reshape the landscape of digital credentials.
