Wallet Development and Integration
Blockchain wallets are essential Web3 applications that keep users’ private keys and provide the necessary interface that allows people to interact with blockchain networks, track their transactional histories and balances and make transactions. Some form of blockchain wallet support is practically a must for most decentralized applications.
One way to ensure that your dApp has smart wallet support is to integrate an existing solution. But if your project requires a custom solution, you need a dedicated development team to build that solution.
As a Web3 development company with an impeccable reputation and more than five years of experience, LimeChain is perfect for the job. We can help you build a solution tailored to your needs or assist you in integrating an already existing solution. Let’s examine our development process in more detail.
The Wallet Development Process
The wallet development process typically goes through the following stages:
The first step is extremely important as it gives an idea what the project is, how it will utilize a wallet and if a proprietary solution is needed in that specific case. We hold meetings with the client to gather the necessary information and outline a course of action.
If it’s decided that a proprietary solution is the best option for the project, we enter the Discovery and Architecture phase, where our goal is to build a firm understanding of the solution, to identify what custom features and functionalities will be required and how all that fits within the scope of the broader project, whether it be a gaming dApp, exchange or marketplace, DeFi dApp, etc. We also use this phase to design an optimal solution architecture. This determines important aspects of the solutions, such as the relationship between backend and frontend, wallet generation, transaction execution, data retrieval and storage.
With all that done, we devise a detailed development roadmap, with clear milestones and deliverables that helps us navigate the subsequent development process. This step determines the relationship between the frontend and backend of the wallet, how the wallet is generated, how data is stored and retrieved, and how transactions are performed. The architecture serves as the blueprint for all subsequent steps of development.
Smart contract development
Smart contracts are required to power any special features and functionalities a proprietary solution might need. These may include features like smart recovery, bundle transactions, transfer limits, NFT support and many more. The team at LimeChain excels at smart contract development and, with over 160 smart contracts successfully deployed to mainnet, we have the portfolio to prove it! We also take smart contract security very seriously and work with leading smart contract auditing firms to ensure that our contracts are well-optimized and bug-free.

Backend and frontend development
Here’s where the bulk of the product finally takes shape. The backend infrastructure handles the interactions between the blockchain and the frontend, as well as the execution of smart contracts. The frontend handles how users interact with the solution.
UX and UI design
Speaking of user interactions, we have a dedicated Web3 UX and UI design team, who make sure that the wallet provides a smooth user experience and features a clean and easy-to-use interface. The team works closely with the frontend developers to ensure that their designs include all the necessary user flows and have the right informational structure, as well as a fitting look and feel.

Before deployment, we conduct rigorous testing to ensure that the wallet performs as intended and there are no bugs and potential exploits.
With all that done, the product is ready to go live.
Third-party wallet integration (optional)
In case your project does not require the development of a proprietary wallet, we can help you with the integration of a suitable third-party solution.
Why work with LimeChain?
Over the past few years, we’ve completed numerous wallet integrations and we’ve helped build custom solutions for several of our clients, including Trezor. We’ve also worked with Ledger, building a software Metadata tool for their hardware wallet, Ledger STAX.
We can build custodial and non-custodial solutions and develop specialized features to bring further utility to a wallet service. So if you’re in need of top-tier wallet development services for your project do not hesitate to contact us.
