DApss Push Notifications to ETH wallet users
Meanwhile, an Indian startup has developed a decentralized notification protocol. It is called Ethereum Push Notification Service (EPNS), letting DApps send push notification to ETH wallet users.
Richa Joshi, the EPNS founder, stated that they built the protocol after seeing a striking resemblance between how applications operated in the early days of the internet and how they run on Web 3.0.
Furthermore, she noted that Gmail or Orkut did not send notifications in its early days as they do now. Users needed to check back every time to see if they got any new emails or messages.
All of that changed when Apple launched notifications for internet applications in 2010.
Joshi explained, “All of a sudden, services began to reach out to users whenever an action was required from their end.”
With that, it boosted the engagement rate by 7x and massively developed user experience.
In that perspective, DApps, smart contracts, and other decentralized services on Web 3.0 work similarly to early day Gmail and Orkut. The EPNS founder highlighted that this intrigued them to deliver push notifications to the decentralized world. And extract the industry from the stone age era of communication.
In a further explanation, EPNS is a decentralized communication layer following the Web 3.0 ethos and can carry notifications to any platform, including crypto wallets, mobile apps, or even web browsers.
According to Joshi, EPNS would serve the same purpose for decentralized apps and services as Apple Push Notification Service does for iOS platforms. Then, this would be the decentralized middleware and verify the source, guarantee spam protection, and only allow notifications through to a wallet user if they have the consent to receive them. Also, the users would have complete control over whether or not they get notifications.
She said that the protocol enables users to be in direct control of the services they receive notifications from, “it imposes rules on the services including spam protection for users, limiting their ability to add wallets as subscribers, etc.”
