Overview of Briefing

0:00-1:23

Brandon Millman, co-founder, is presenting this technical briefing of Phantom.

He starts off by introducing Phantom and who they are.

1:23-1:56

Phantom has been operating for 6 months about to hit 2 million users at the time of this presentation. Brandon thanks the community and developers for the success.

Phantom is currently active as a browser extension but will be launched as an iOS app soon.

1:56-2:36

Brandon explains that we can expect Phantom to operate as we would normally expect from a wallet.

We see what the wallet browser extension looks like and how an ecosystem of NFTs are also included.

2:36-3:54

Brandon shows us that Phantom allows users to view and manage NFT collections from within the wallet.

We also see the built-in swap feature that is included in the Phantom wallet.

Brandon also explains that Phantom users can use Phantom to interact with different Web3 applications on the internet.

3:54-4:24

The last feature that Brandon shows us is the in-wallet soul staking.

We get to see the browser extension of what all these features look like from a product perspective.

4:24-4:50

Brandon tells us more about the team behind Phantom.

4:50-5:04

Brandon shows us some cool user-safety features.

The first feature Brandon shows us is a transaction simulation function.

5:04-6:55

We see what the wallet looks like it receives a transaction to sign. Brandon shows us what the wallet perspective sees and how this function allows users to see how the transactions are recorded and documented.

6:55-9:22

Brandon then moves into showing how Phantom combats scams and phishing.

We see a website blocking feature that Phantom has in place to help users avoid these situations. Websites are flagged and then the Phantom team utilizes APIs to block these sites to protect users.

9:22-11:50

Brandon moves into how users’ wallets are secured with the use of secret recovery phrases. We see an example of this and how this feature works on the Phantom network.

With this feature, users can easily add new wallets and identities from within Phantom.

11:50-14:21

Brandon jumps into what it looks like to build a Web3 application to interact with Phantom.

This API is similar to those that have built Ethereum based applications previously.

14:21-15:13

Brandon closes out by shouting out different ways and resources to integrate and develop with Phantom.
