I vote yes for this project.

  1. Creating an account with a social account makes it easier for newer people to on board to Harmony and crypto in general.

I know the existing crypto user base may have issues with the cloud storage, but no one will be forcing them to use the service if they aren’t comfortable with it.

  1. The code library would make it easier for devs to create dapps on chain.

  2. The service is already used by more older blockchains with larger user bases. This serves as an opportunity for Harmony to be given exposure to a larger audience and assist in the growth of our overall footprint.

If there is any downside that I am missing, I am happy to consider it.

I vote for this project, :white_check_mark:
I like the concept single sign on for block chain. Personally I had two user experience in this concept, ontology ont ID , and project iDall . So this may be an opportunity to Harmony . It’s effective and easy to use social media IDs along with same as ONT ID but we have to concern more about data security.
Concept is perfect.
