Unlockd has always been committed to providing a seamless experience for its users, and communication plays a vital role in that. With the growing complexity of the web3 ecosystem, it has become increasingly challenging to communicate effectively with users: right now, there is no form of communication that is not general and broad (like announcing stuff on Twitter, Telegram, Discord… to the whole audience).

If we want to adopt the personal platform-user communication model of the great and successful web2 products, we need to do better.

That’s why we’re excited to announce our partnership and integration with hashmail. hashmail is like Twilio for web3. They help dApps send personalized email communications (updates, alerts, rewards, billing, and reminder emails) to users’ wallet addresses. They deliver these communications across multiple channels — their web/mobile inbox, Telegram, web2 email, and Discord. All with a single API.

With hashmail, you can now receive important notifications and alerts from Unlockd directly to your preferred channel — your web3 wallet address, telegram, web2 email, or even on our own front end. You can also communicate with other users who share your interests, have a token you need, or are part of a DAO you’re interested in.

Hashmail makes it easy to establish direct, targeted communication with other users and dApps, solving one of the largest contributors to a poor user experience in the ecosystem.

We’re excited about this partnership because it aligns perfectly with our mission to provide a seamless, integrated experience for Unlockd users. By integrating hashmail into our platform, we’re ensuring that our users can stay informed and engaged with everything happening with their positions in Unlockd, and also discover potential opportunities they might not be aware of.

Hashmail is now integrated with the Unlockd dApp

Step 1: Head to the Unlockd dapp and connect your wallet to find the hashmail widget at the bottom right. You will be able to see all emails sent to your wallet address on this widget. (see image below)

Step 2: Click on the ‘forwarding’ tab and set up auto-forwarding to your telegram or web2 email. It’s as simple as that! You will now receive all important communication from Unlockd directly to your preferred channels. You can also simply sign up to the hashmail web3 inbox or download the hashmail mobile app to view the messages.

Control over your operations to help you sleep soundly

We’ve all been there — with open DeFi positions and the market doing a wobble. Checking your loans every five minutes to see your Health Factor status is a kick to your mental health.

But what can you do? Close your eyes and pretend it’s not happening? No way.

Thankfully, now you can always stay informed about the status of your NFT-backed loans in Unlockd with hashmail. With different levels of alerts, you’ll receive notifications in your on-chain inbox as soon as the Health Factor of any of your loans approaches a dangerous threshold. This way, you can focus on other things, feeling confident that if you need to intervene, you’ll always be in the loop.

“But what if I’m a risk management pro, and my Health Factor never goes below 2? How does this help me?”

Well, in that case, you’re the perfect person to take advantage of all the opportunities Unlockd NFT Auctions have to offer.

When a loan (of course, never yours because your risk management skills are out of this world) goes into liquidation, an auction begins where you can get the NFT at an irresistible discounted price to add to your collection or make a quick flip and profit from arbitrage opportunities.

But, let’s be real, stalking the Auction House five times a day for recent liquidations is not exactly fun. Plus, it pays to be the sniper who shoots first because the first bid is incentivized with a monetary reward, regardless of whether you win the auction or not.

That’s why we’ve set up an on-chain listener for you. You’ll receive alerts directly in your inbox when juicy NFTs become available for bidding, so you can be the fastest gun in the West and snag that NFT before anyone else.

Leveraging wallet-based communication to provide extra value to Unlockd users

The possibilities are endless with hashmail integration with Unlockd. From custom updates to protocol news, we’re excited to see how our users will take advantage of this new communication channel.

Notifications and reminders — hashmail is here to save the day! We know how easy it is to miss out on important notifications and reminders in the fast-paced world of web3. That’s why we’re excited to offer our users the convenience of receiving notifications and reminders directly to your hashmail web3 inbox, telegram, or web2 email. From new rewards and incentives promotions to voting governance proposal reminders, we’ve got you covered!

Newsletters — there’s nothing quite like the thrill of discovering new collections supported by Unlockd or learning about the latest updates to our dApp and new features. Our newsletter and protocol updates will be the perfect way to stay in the loop and get the latest scoop on what’s happening in the Unlockd ecosystem.

Account updates — keeping track of your DeFi positions can be a daunting task, but hashmail makes it a breeze. You’ll be able to receive monthly statements and account summaries directly to your preferred channel. So, you can stay on top of your NFT-backed lending operations and always know where you stand.

Support messages — we know that web3 can be a complicated space, and issues can arise from time to time. That’s why we’re here to offer timely support to help you resolve any issues you may encounter with our dApp. With hashmail, in addition to our other channels like Discord o Twitter, you’ll have direct access to our support team, so you can get back to doing what you love — getting the juice out of your NFT-backed loans.

We believe that this integration with hashmail will set a new standard for communication in the web3 ecosystem and provide a foundation for the next billion users in NFT finance.

If you’re looking to stay informed and engaged in the web3 ecosystem, particularly in how your NFT-backed loans are going, stay tuned for our upcoming AMA sessions on the partnership and integration with hashmail!
