Flow Roadmap

Best-in-class non-custodial

Last updated: Aug 25, 2023

Self custody is the most important feature of Web3, yet the onboarding hurdle of self custody-first applications presents a huge barrier to entry. To facilitate mass adoption, users must experience all the benefits of Web3 – data sovereignty, ownership, permissionless building, and decentralization with the frictionless experience of familiar Web2 tools. With native protocol level account abstraction, users can experience web3 with no seed phrase onboarding, simplified key recovery, secure transaction verification, and seamless transaction signing.


Building mainstream user experiences without compromising composability, ownership, or decentralization

Fully open source non-custodial wallet implementation

Current progress

Flow has natively built-in support for protocol-level account abstraction, but more upgrades are required to secure the Hybrid Custody model. Hybrid Custody leverages Account Linking to connect app-based accounts to a self-custody wallet, but supporting linked accounts such that users achieve Hybrid Custody has a bit more nuance – namely, those apps should build on the Hybrid Custody standard proposed in FLIP #72

Wallet primer with an open-source wallet engine is already a work in progress. It will be available later in the year.
