🔄Capsule Connect

Connect a Capsule Wallet to other apps using WalletConnect.

Getting Started and Connecting to an App

The Capsule Connect App makes it easy to use your Capsule wallet to sign anywhere WalletConnect is supported!

To use your embedded wallet anywhere WalletConnect is supported, follow these steps

  1. Navigate to the Capsule Connect App

  2. Log In with your Capsule email and passkey

  3. Use WalletConnect to connect your dApp of choice by navigating to WalletConnect within the app and either:

Selecting the Capsule tile from “view all” — this will open the capsule app and prompt you to login if you haven’t yet. Next time, you'll see Capsule prioritized under "Recent" for convenience.

Copying the link in the WalletConnect Component, then entering it in the “wc code” input in the Capsule for WalletConnect App

Signing Transactions

Come back to the app page to approve and sign with your wallet

You’ll then need to revisit this page to approve any individual transactions

Settings

Export Private Key

If you'd like to export your Capsule wallet's private key, you can also do so from Capsule Connect. Navigate to Settings, then select "Export Private Key". You'll then follow steps to view your private key, which you can add to another wallet of your choice. After this, you can still continue using Capsule.

NOTE: Capsule does not take any responsibility for improper management of exported private keys. Please only take this step if you understand all the risks involved.

Replace Recovery Secret

If you forgot to store your recovery secret, you can always generate a new one in Capsule Connect. Navigate to Settings, then select "Replace Recovery Secret". Note that this will invalidate your old recovery secret, much like resetting a password

Download Backup Kit

You can always download another copy of your Backup Kit here for censorship resistance reasons. Note that you should never need to use this unless Capsule is unavailable.

Troubleshooting

If you’re facing any issues with either WalletConnect or Capsule as you’re connecting to other apps, copy the QR code link in the WalletConnect modal and paste it into the Capsule Connect App. Navigate back to the page to approve and sign transactions with your wallet.

Security

For Users

Connecting to different applications with Capsule Connect does not give applications access to the wallet, instead requiring explicit approval on each transaction. There's more coming in this area, if you'd like to learn more get in touch!

For Developers

For applications that have not integrated Capsule, users are prompted to confirm and sign individual transactions, which matches the default experience most crypto users are familiar with today and minimizes trust requirements for users to try new apps.

For applications that have integrated Capsule, users can use wallets cross-app directly within the app experience without needing to use Capsule Connect, offering an experience with no redirects, popups, or context switching for the user
