WalletConnect is an open protocol to communicate securely between Tectonic and wallets. The idea is to allow users to connect their desired wallets to Tectonic on their mobile devices, without the need to install and approve on browser extensions.
The protocol establishes a remote connection using a Bridge server to relay payloads. These payloads are symmetrically encrypted through a shared key. The connection is initiated when Tectonic displays a QR Code or deep link with a standard WalletConnect URI and is established when the counter-party approves this connection request. It also includes an optional Push server to allow Native applications to notify the user of incoming payloads for established connections.
