We propose the Ethereum Push Notifications Service be integrated with Index Coop.
Decentralized notifications through EPNS establish a direct line of communication between Index Coop and its investors. All the investors who hold Index Coop products will have the ability to get notifications on their assets and holdings.
EPNS is the first decentralized communication protocol that enables any dApp, smart contract, or backend to send push notifications tied to user wallet addresses.
At present, the EPNS protocol powers notifications for 70+ projects, such as Ethereum Name Service (ENS), Decentraland, Uniswap, Pine Protocol, and DoinGud around the Ethereum ecosystem, and soon will be deployed to all the EVM-compatible networks.
We started building EPNS in January 2020.
While interacting with decentralized applications, we realized the lack of a notification mechanism that can notify users or wallet addresses about important events, updates, and actions. As a result, a lot of important events which require user attention end up being missed completely.
EPNS tries to solve this with its Push Notifications service. To do this efficiently, the notification is stored and treated like a JSON payload, and this is transformed as per the rules of the different carriers when the notification ends up reaching them.
The JSON payload can differ with payload types, and this ensures the flexibility of the content, as well as the data, storage interpretation, and delivery.
EPNS allows users to be in full control of what services they get notifications from, and impose rules on the services, which include spam protection for users. This means that notifications are treated as a social feed rather than a piece of information.
Making the best use of technologies at hand to enhance user experience is the essence of innovation in Web3. Many protocols and dApps currently rely on emails or social media tools like Twitter, Telegram, and Discord to communicate with their users.
By implementing EPNS decentralized notifications, a direct channel is created between Index Coop and Users. Users will be able to receive notifications and respond immediately.
All notifications can be delivered in rich media format, resulting in a more engaging user experience. Here are the exact use cases for which users of the Index Coop platform will receive notifications;
- Updates on your holdings on Index Coop
- New products/index releases
Sending out notifications for these events will be very beneficial for users in staying up-to-date with their current positions and taking appropriate actions.
For: Index Coop will leverage the Ethereum Push Notifications Service to serve decentralized notifications to its users
Against: Do nothing
