Every user needs a universal platform to access all the possibilities of the crypto world: he has no intention and no time to download several mobile services and understand their interfaces. All he needs is to quickly and securely conduct all the necessary operations in one app.  

Services that combine the ability to conduct

Trustee Wallet is one of the few wallets that combines the above characteristics. 

In this article we describe what WalletConnect is, how to use it, and how to get the most comfortable access to the DeFi.

What is WalletConnect?

WalletConnect is an open-source protocol designed to connect cryptocurrency wallets to decentralized exchanges (DEX) and apps (DApps) by scanning a QR code or via Deep-Link (a link leading to a mobile app).

Users can securely interact with any decentralized applications (exchanges), unlike browser extensions or desktop wallets.

Why do I need WalletConnect in my wallet?

How to use WalletConnect is a very relevant question against the background of the growing interest in decentralized platforms. Using WalletConnect in a wallet allows you to solve several important tasks at once:

  • an easy and fast way to log in to DeFi,

  • no need to search for and install various programs,

  • secure and fast connection,

  • saving time,

  • no registrations,

  • Direct exchange of your balances to DeFi tokens and back.

How to use WalletConnect - step by step instructions

As we have already discussed above, WalletConnect significantly extends the functionality of a service because it gives the user easy access to the DeFi. 

Connecting your Trustee wallet to a DeFi-platform using Wallet Connect is very easy. Below we attach screenshots that demonstrate how to do this.

Don't forget to check the addresses of the sites in your browser address bar before connecting your wallet. Connecting to a fraudulent site can result in the loss of your funds.

It's about the same for most other sites. You are required to find this button, click it, and select the Wallet Connect method. The site will generate a unique QR code to connect.

Here are the instructions:

2. As soon as you confirm the connection request, the wallet will show you the connection settings page. Pay attention to the second and third items. The second item shows the name of the interface connected to the wallet and contains "Connect" and "Press to Stop" connection buttons. Also added is the "Paranoid Logout" function.

This function will automatically break the connection of the wallet with the site as soon as you close the settings window.

4. All you have to do is select the required pair and make the exchange.

5. If you did not enable the "Paranoid Logout" function, and you left the Wallet Connect connection settings window, it is easy to come back - on the main screen, to the right of the balance you can see the corresponding inscription, pressing which will open the connection settings window again.
