The following article aims to be a guide through integration of a key management strategy on client side of your Decentralised Application on Matic Network.

The following wallets will be discussed:


  • Arkane: Arkane is a user-friendly, secure, and custodial key management system for DApps. Arkane supports both Web and mobile, and can service both crypto savvy users as well as a more mainstream audience. Being blockchain agnostic they are a great fit for supporting both Matic and Ethereum. 
  • Fortmatic: Fortmatic SDK allows you to easily integrate your app with the Ethereum blockchain, whether you already have a dApp integrated with web3 or are starting from scratch. Fortmatic provides a smooth and delightful experience for both you and your app’s users. 
  • Metamask: Metamask is a browser add-on that manages a user’s Ethereum wallet by storing their private key on their browser’s data store and the seed phrase encrypted with their password. It is a non-custodial wallet, meaning, the user has full access and responsibility their private key. Once lost, the user can no longer control the savings or restore access to the wallet. 
  • Portis: Portis is a web-based wallet built keeping easy user-onboarding in mind. It comes with a javascript SDK that integrates into the DApp and creates a local wallet-less experience for the user. Further, it handles setting up the wallet, transactions and gas fees. 
  • Torus: Torus is a user-friendly, secure, and non-custodial key management system for DApps. We’re focused on providing mainstream users a gateway to the decentralized ecosystem. 
  • Wallet Connect: WalletConnect is an open protocol to communicate securely between Wallets and Dapps (Web3 Apps). The protocol establishes a remote connection between two apps and/or devices using a Bridge server to relay payloads. These payloads are symmetrically encrypted through a shared key between the two peers.

High-level steps:

The overall steps would essentially remain the same for any client side application to talk to the blockchain:

  1. Set up Web3web3.js is a javascript library that allows our client-side application to talk to the blockchain. We configure web3 to communicate via Metamask/Wallet Connect/Portis.Note: Refer Web3.js docs to add web3 to your project
  2. Set up Account: To send transactions from (specifically for transactions that alter the state of the blockchain)
  3. Instantiate contracts: Once we have our web3 object in place, we next instantiate our deployed contract, with which we interact.
  4. Call functions: we fetch data via functions in the contract – through our contract object.
