PhotoBlock works with a photo you provide (any JPEG will do) and your personal emoji sequence called an EmojiKey. The photo is transformed into a downloadable PhotoBlock file with embedded accounts for Web, Bitcoin and Ethereum (the three platforms currently supported). You can then use your PhotoBlock with your EmojiKey to unlock and access the accounts anywhere PhotoBlock is integrated.
PhotoBlock can be added to any dapp or website by a developer in just a few minutes, making it easy for users to authenticate and access the dapp/website without the hassle of usernames, passwords, private keys, mnemonic passphrases and generally everything that users dislike. It uses the OAuth2 standard with a public end-point to provide a secure, 100% decentralized authentication and account management solution for any blockchain dapp or website. Developers can focus on building awesome apps for their users — PhotoBlock does the rest!
PhotoBlock is a free, Open Source (MIT License) library for use on websites and dapps. It combines user accounts, two-factor authentication and message signing into a unified user experience. In this Alpha Release, you can create PhotoBlocks, then use them for Web, Bitcoin and Ethereum. Our development list includes:
