In the ever-evolving landscape of Web3, as protocols become more innovative and mature, the need for web3 wallets to act as a bridge for onboarding typical Internet (web2) users into web3 with minimal friction is advancing rapidly.

Amidst these technical advancements, communication remains a paramount factor in driving this transformation.

Today, Push Protocol is at the forefront, enabling wallets to enhance their functionality and better serve their users by becoming a 'Super App’.


According to DApp Radar, Q1 2024 saw a remarkable surge in daily active wallet users (dUAW), reaching an average of 7 million daily active wallets—a 77% increase compared to the previous year.

The numbers clearly show that the entry into web3 starts from a wallet. With more than 120 wallet apps, the sheer innovation in onboarding the next Billion users into web3 is surreal.

Although wallets are expanding their utility from simply being a medium of secure storage and a facilitator of transactions to now, becoming a ‘Super Hub’ for NFT, DeFi, and app browsing activities, they still lack the ability to consistently relay updates and alerts between the user and the accessed protocol while maintaining a constant, symbiotic and duplex communication relationship.

In addition, multi-chain wallets serve as a single entry point for users to interact with applications across a variety of supported chains with ease. However, there is no standardized way for these apps to communicate back with users through the same entrance point i.e. your wallet.


Push helps us solve these challenges.

With the help of an open - decentralized and secure network supported across multiple chains, Push facilitates any wallet, DApp, service or smart contract to tap into the network and fetch notifications with ease.

With the motive of forming a universal communication layer of web3, Push Protocol is expanding its support to multiple chains including Ethereum, Polygon, BSC, Arbitrum, Polygon zkEVM, Cyber and Fuse.

To date, Push has sent over 80 Million Notifications across 230k+ subscribers.
