Dapps Welcomes Ethereum Push Notification Services (EPNS)
Dapps To Send Push Notifications To Ethereum Wallet Users
A startup in India has designed a decentralized notification protocol tagged Ethereum Push Notification Service (EPNS) that will allow DAPPS to send push notifications to Ethereum wallet users. The founder of EPNS, Richa Joshi, said they birthed the idea after seeing a close resemblance between the way applications worked when the Internet was still in its infancy and how they operate on Web 3.0.
She gave an example of how Gmail did not send notifications in its early days, but right now, they do. In the past, users had to check their accounts repeatedly to see if they received any new messages.
The emergence of notifications has changed the way. Internet applications operate.
“All of a sudden, services began to reach out to users whenever an action was required from their end. It increased the engagement rate by 7x and massively improved user experience,” she added.
The Working Principle
Going from the already established principle, she said DAPPS, smart contracts, and other decentralized services on Web 3.0 would have similar working principles as the early days of Gmail. Joshi mentioned that this was what caught their attention and convinced them to bring push notifications to the decentralized environment.
In explaining how EPNS works, she said, “it is capable of carrying notifications to any platform including crypto wallets, mobile apps, or even web browsers.”
She hopes the EPNS will be one of the first steps in pulling the industry out of the stone age. She also added that the EPNS would act in the same way Apple Push Notification Service does for iOS platforms.
“The protocol allows users to be in direct control of what services they get notifications from, it imposes rules on the services including spam protection for users, limiting their ability to add wallets as subscribers, etc.”
DApps and other decentralized services will have an excellent opportunity to push their services to the cryptocurrency community, thanks to push notifications.
