What is the Okto DeFi wallet used for?

Okto is a mobile app with the vision to provide easy and secure access to Web3 opportunities. Okto has built an easy-to-use interface for anyone to explore vetted DeFi investment opportunities and earn passive income on their crypto holdings. With its keyless, self-custody Web3 wallet, Okto provides secure access to DeFi services while eliminating the hassle of securing your funds.

Okto has been developed in partnership with CoinDCX to enable every user to become a part of the Decentralized economy. Decentralization empowers individuals to retain control of their assets while maintaining privacy, and Okto makes that possible for you.

With its intuitive mobile application, you will gain access to Decentralised Finance opportunities that are carefully curated with pre-evaluation and complete risk assessment of the listed opportunities. With Okto, we are solving the discoverability challenge in DeFi by providing access to 1,000+ DeFi tokens, 20+ chains, 150+ liquidity pools, and 100+ protocols on a single Web3 wallet.

How is Okto different from other DeFi wallets?

Today’s investors either do not understand DeFi or struggle to determine and identify legitimate opportunities within the blockchain ecosystem. Our mission at Okto is to provide you with the simplest DeFi wallet app which is exhaustive in providing investment opportunities. Okto is a one-stop-solution to DeFi with a range of unmatched features:

  • Easy to Use - Okto offers an easy-to-use and intuitive solution that removes the complexity associated with private key management. It eliminates the need to understand blockchain or private keys.
  • Highly secure using MPC: Okto leverages advanced multi-party computation (MPC) to offer a keyless infrastructure where private keys are distributed and stored across various locations.
  • Earn high yields on idle crypto: Okto provides additional opportunities to earn passive income by trading thousands of tokens and depositing idle crypto funds to high-yield generating pools. In the near future, Okto will enable investors to access 1,000+ tokens across 150+ liquidity pools by giving access to 20+ chains and 100+ protocols over time.
  • Self-Custody- Okto offers a self-custody solution for crypto assets. It provides users full control of their funds as all the transactions require the user’s approval to be processed successfully. Users are in full control of their assets as the wallets cannot be created or operated without their approval.

Okto is a DeFi app which is truly multichain, equipped with a high-performance wallet that is incredibly simple for its users to use and provides a range of unmatched investment opportunities.

Is Okto DeFi wallet secure?

Okto has an in-built secure 2FA-enabled, self-custodial wallet that utilizes MPC to perform distributed wallet operations on assets across multiple blockchains. Okto brings MPC to retail with all requisite end-to-end features of wallet creation, transaction signing, recovery, and security whilst keeping the user as the primary owner. MPC removes single points of vulnerability which means that there is no single place that could lead to a compromise and provide full access to the wallet.

Using MPC, Okto can create a user's private key as separate, cryptographically sensitive secret shares that no longer need to be stored under single custody. One of the shares is controlled by the user while the other shares are held by secondary signing parties. The partial signature of the user and the secondary parties together make the complete signature for a user.

Okto has three signing parties and all three parties are required to jointly perform a transaction for a valid signature. They are independent of each other and no single person has administrative access to both parties, thus preventing others from controlling your funds. The user retains primary ownership of their wallet's key as only they can initiate transactions.

In the event of key share misplacement from the user's side such as when a phone is lost or replaced, they have a reliable, simple process to back up and recover their key share. They can simply recover the share or refresh all key shares in a cryptographically secure method that does not reveal any information to any third party.

How to backup your private keys to secure your funds?

In case you get logged out of the app or use a new device, backup helps you access your wallet. Okto uses encryption which is a security method of encoding private information that can only be decrypted by the user with specific keys, thus adding an extra layer of security to your funds.

Online Backup: Your wallet keys get synced to your personal cloud that gives you access if you get a new phone. To stay safe, we recommend using more than one cloud service.

Offline backup: Your wallet recovery key is converted into a simple text format making it possible for you to write it down & hide it somewhere offline. Offline keys are less accessible, which in return adds a layer of security.
