The Ethereum community is discussing a proposal by Danfinlay for a
redeemDelegation interface to improve user experience with more personalized authorization in wallet connections, including the concept of multi-tenant smart contract wallets. While the proposal promises to empower users and simplify development, it also introduces complexity and challenges in standardization and implementation that the community is actively working to address.
The discussion focuses on improving the Ethereum user experience by proposing a more conversational approach to wallet connections. The
redeemDelegation interface, introduced by Danfinlay, aims to allow contract accounts to use various authorization logics, which would enable personalized user authorization when connecting to websites1. This interface would let a contract authorize a transaction for another account with a valid authorization payload8. The idea of multi-tenant smart contract wallets is also explored, suggesting that a smart contract address could function like a "bank smart contract," with unique identifiers for each user7.
The community is supportive and actively engaged in discussing the proposal's potential impact, particularly on multi-tenant smart contract wallets. An optional 4th parameter has been proposed to help smart contracts identify the user granting permission4. Danfinlay has requested clarification on the type of multi-tenant account under discussion and has asked for links to any relevant standards6. Kdenhartog has suggested a system for these wallets and is developing a Proof of Concept (PoC) to showcase the idea7. The community is collaborating to refine and understand the proposed systems.
