The Easy Company has launched its innovative social wallet on the Sui Layer 1 blockchain, offering next-generation social experiences for the Sui community.
The mobile wallet is available on iOS and Android and brings web3 to life by seamlessly merging the functionality of a traditional blockchain explorer with the engaging features of a social network.
The Easy Company
The Easy Company aims to enhance accessibility and security in Web3 through its flagship application, Easy. This social wallet is designed to provide users with engaging social discovery features and user-curated profiles to facilitate navigation and exploration of the Web3 ecosystem.
In January, Easy Company raised $14.2 million in seed funding from a range of investors, including Lobby Capital, Relay Ventures, 6th Man Ventures, Tapestry VC, Upside Partnership, and Scribble Ventures, as well as experienced angel investors from social and Web3 backgrounds.
The funding will be used to develop a new crypto wallet that caters to the digital lifestyle of today’s web3 users.
Notably, former executives from popular tech companies like Airbnb, Twitter, and Uber also participated in the funding round.
The New Easy Social Wallet on Sui
The wallet will enable users to easily connect with other Sui community members, exchange Sui tokens, and receive real-time updates on news across the Sui ecosystem. This innovative social wallet provides a seamless way to send and receive Sui and to connect with other Sui users to discover what cool things are happening in the Sui ecosystem.
Sui, a decentralized, proof-of-stake blockchain launched on mainnet on May 3rd, is designed to enable creators and developers to build experiences that cater to the next billion users in web3.
Easy will leverage the flexibility, scalability, and speed of Sui to unlock new experiences in gaming, NFTs, and payments for web3 users.
According to Mike Dougherty, The Easy Company co-founder and CEO, “Easy provides a seamless way to send and receive Sui and to connect with other Sui users to discover what cool things are happening in the Sui ecosystem, now.”
The feature-rich mobile design is also important for users anywhere in the world who prefer mobile as their primary way to interact with web3.
The Easy social wallet is the first Sui wallet to enable users to earn Easy XP as they explore and engage with the Sui ecosystem.
Designed and built by a team of consumer web and mobile experts from Airbnb, Disney, Apple, Microsoft, Google, Nuance, and iHeartMedia, Easy is a new approach to wallet design, with a focus on user experience, safety, and fun.
The Easy social wallet offers several features and benefits for Sui users, including easy profile-to-profile payments, the ability to create an identity on Sui and curate what makes you special, the ability to follow Sui friends and favorite communities to learn what is happening in the ecosystem in real time, and the ability to discover what games and apps you should be trying on Sui.
Evan Cheng, Mysten Labs co-founder and CEO, said: “Sui enables mainstream use cases like fast peer-to-peer payment solutions and social apps that require a new architecture at the protocol level to scale. Easy’s beautiful, user-centric design takes advantage of the Sui protocol to unlock easier, safer, and more fun ways people can engage with web3, and each other.”
The Easy social wallet is built on a safe and beautifully-designed mobile wallet that helps users engage with the Sui community from wherever they are. The wallet also supports mobile notifications and Ledger integration. Users can try out the first social mobile wallet for Sui, available today on iOS and Android, at easy.me.
