Expose the public address of a wallet

It would be good if we could have the public address exposed without any interaction from the user, this would enable many new innovative way to interact with web3.

I would like to build a 0-click login. Imagine minting a NFT with userdata on a website instead of registering, then if you visit a website and it can check the public address for ownership of a NFT , it can automatically consider you a user, and uses the data provided by your NFT.



This is a big blow to privacy and security.

privacy and security are completely up to the user

exposing the public key isn’t really enough for that feature, we would also have to come up with a way to guarantee that the browser is the owner without constant wallet interaction so maybe when NFT is mitned the webpage and user browser establish a proof

It sounds this is asking to collect a users info, without their permissions ‘the public address exposed without any interaction from the user’, if I am following that right. This is what web3 is moving away from IMO, similar to data collection cookies.

not at all,
you can have a user toggle (default unchecked) expose my PUBLIC address,
I just think it would be very useful

Is that an option you’re saying would be in the MM wallet?

Yes I think it could be implemented as an option.
