Universal Profiles are blockchain accounts that are owned entirely by their users. These profiles can act as public profiles and can be used to interact with decentralized applications. Users can store digital assets, such as NFTs and tokens, in these profiles.
Universal Profiles can serve as a secure identity on the blockchain. They can make using blockchain technology much easier and more convenient. They are built using different standards (LSPs) that can be updated or improved without changing everything at once.
This is the core account contract, the backbone of your Universal Profile. It allows interaction with any other account or contract on the blockchain, stores data, and verifies if messages were signed by the account's owner.
This is like a security officer for your account. It checks if the addresses trying to interact with your account have the right permissions. It can execute transactions either directly or with a signed message by permissioned users.
This is a helper for your account that decides how to handle incoming assets. For example, it could reject certain assets or add extra logic for how to process the asset.
This gives your Universal Profile its unique characteristics. Such as your profile picture, bio etc, somewhat similar to how your social media profile looks.
Universal Profiles try to provide a more coherent, secure, and user-friendly experience for individuals or entities interacting with the blockchain. They offer more flexibility and are designed to be updatable, meaning changes or improvements can be made without affecting the overall structure of the profile.
A transaction relayer allows applications to pay for users’ transaction fees.
With user-friendly backup systems you cn have with multiple recovery methods.
Creators, companies and brands can build their on-chain reputation. A true reputation that lasts.
Instead of a public hash users can have a rich profile with information like a name, bio, picture, etc.
Profiles keep track of what goes in and out. No need for centralized APIs to know what you own.
On-chain references make detecting fake and frauds easy. On-chain reputation will be a key factor.
It is almost impossible to build an identity solely based on keys, as they are easily lost or leaked, which could result in the loss of assets and reputation. A better way to represent one's identity would be through blockchain-based accounts.
These accounts can revolutionize the way we interact on-chain, allowing the use of multiple components in combination with a Controller (see LSP6 - Key Manager). With this combination, any entity can execute or set data on your profile directly or through relay execution. Additionally, developers can use contracts for social recovery in case of key loss. Together, these components can significantly enhance the blockchain experience.
