A crypto wallet is a piece of software that lets you store your crypto assets and interact with the blockchain. To transact on DeF‌i protocols or applications, a user would need to connect their Frontier mobile wallet to the decentralized website.

Unlike browser wallet extensions which are automatically prompted whenever a user wants to perform a crypto transaction on a protocol. Mobile wallets like Frontier make use of a middleware called WalletConnect to connect to a crypto website.

WalletConnect is an open protocol that uses a deep mobile linking feature or QR scanning to allow decentralized applications (dApps) and protocols to interact with mobile wallet apps.

How to connect your Frontier mobile wallet to a dApp using WalletConnect

Access website on PC

Step 1

Visit the website on your PC => Click "Connect Wallet" => Select "WalletConnect" from the options => A QR code will be displayed.

Step 2

Open your Frontier wallet interface => Tap on the "WalletConnect" icon on the top right corner => Tap on "Scan WalletConnect QR" to scan the code displayed on your PC => Tap "Connect wallet" on your mobile wallet.

Access website on mobile browser

Step 1

Visit the website on your mobile browser => Click "Connect Wallet" => Select "WalletConnect" from the options => Tap the "Connect" icon.

Step 2

Choose Frontier from the displayed mobile wallets => Tap the "Connect wallet" button to connect to the website.

WalletConnect establishes an encrypted connection between the mobile wallet and the dApp. This enables users to securely carry out transactions on the blockchain without revealing any personal information. Users can also access DeFi applications directly on the Frontier mobile app using the in-app dApp browser.
