Web3 authentication

Q1. What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
As because of blockchain more and more decentralized organizations are emerging, it often gets challenging when credentials need to be shared. Many people are wary of sharing email addresses or having to type a password on a site, even when it looks like a legit password manager.

Q2 - Who is impacted?
Right now this industry may still seem like a niche, but with billions of dollars locked up in smart contracts and thousands of projects already building, this group will quickly grow.

Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
It will tap into an emerging market of decentralized groups that already use a plugin to authenticate themselves securely, with an encryption strong enough to encrypt a password database as well.

Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)
A browser plugin like Metamask uses the Web3 standard to authenticate on websites, to interact with the services on their website. It can also be used to cryptographically sign messages.
Web3 support could be offered as an alternative for the Passbolt browser plugin. Instead of adding a user through their email address, they would be added by their wallet address (= public key).
