Bitget Wallet Launches MPC Wallet, Providing a More Secure and User-Friendly Web3 Wallet Service

As the saying unequivocally goes: "Not your keys, not your coins", the secure management of private keys remains a paramount concern for users in the Web3 space. Traditional wallet solutions often require users to memorize or store complex mnemonic phrases or private keys, which can lead to irrecoverable loss if compromised. To address this security challenge and lower the entry barrier for wallet users, leading multi-chain wallet Bitget Wallet (formerly known as BitKeep Wallet), officially announced the launch of a "keyless" MPC (Multi-Party Computation) Wallet solution. Leveraging enterprise-level MPC technology, Bitget MPC Wallet aims to offer users with a seamless Web3 Wallet experience that boasts industry-leading security parameters.

Bitget Wallet Launches MPC Wallet, Providing a More Secure and User-Friendly Web3 Wallet Service


Secure and User-Friendly "Keyless" Experience


One of the fundamental characteristics of an MPC wallet that sets it apart from conventional and mainstream EOA wallets is the elimination of the need to store or memorize complex mneomonic phrases and / or private keys, hence providing a "keyless" user experience.

With Bitget MPC Wallet, users can easily create an account through email login authentication, making it accessible even for beginners. Additionally, users may perform a cloud backup of their key shares using a simple 3-step process, effectively mitigating risks such as key misplacement or theft.

This facilitates a "keyless" user experience that is useful, convenient, and secure.


Reliable Enterprise-Level MPC Solution

Bitget Wallet's MPC wallet employs the Threshold Signature Scheme (TSS) that strictly adheres to the highest industry-wide security standards. Bitget MPC Wallet primarily incorporates security features including the generation of large prime numbers, distributed key generation (DKG), distributed collaborative signatures, homomorphic encryption, and the widely-recognized "2/3" threshold, ensuring the highest level of security at all stages of key management from generation to storage.


When creating a Bitget MPC Wallet, the platform automatically generates large prime numbers that are resistant to quantum attacks.


"The generation of secure large primes is to ensure that subsequent protocol operations within the MPC wallet are carried out with the highest security standards possible," the Bitget Wallet development team states. "When generating large prime numbers, specific conditions have to be met in the algorithm to ensure maximum resistance against potential attacks".


The process of generating large prime numbers is initiated when a Bitget MPC Wallet is first created, and may take up to a minute.


"Although the creation process may take some time, this is a worthy trade-off as the overall security level is significantly increased," the Bitget Wallet development team concludes.

For private key generation, Bitget MPC Wallet utilizes distributed key generation technology to create "implicitly mapped complete private key" shares through multi-party collaborative computing. Each key share contains a fragment that will never be transmitted, guaranteeing that private key shares remain secure and that complete private keys are never exposed or leaked, avoiding the possibility of single-point failure.


In the signature process, Bitget MPC Wallet employs distributed threshold signature technology, maintaining the private key in a decentralized and "fluid" state. This enables users to complete signatures without exposing the entirety of the private key at any stage, enhancing both private key and asset security.


On this, the Bitget Wallet team shared: "Most MPC wallet solutions in the market are aimed at retail users, which therefore oftentimes prioritize convenience and convenience over security. For instance, creating an account via a centralized platform may indeed expedite the creation process, but doing so will increase the margin of risk. Similarly, leveraging regular prime numbers in key generation may likewise also compromise on security levels in favour of speed."
