Desig - Multisig meets multichain

Dear DoraHacks Community,

We are excited to submit a proposal for funding from the DoraHacks GrantDAO to support the development and promotion of Desig, our blockchain-agnostic multisig solution. Desig aims to revolutionize how users secure and manage their digital assets, addressing the vulnerabilities and usability challenges of traditional multisig wallets.

We request a $50,000 USD grant from the Dora GrantDAO to further the early-stage development and subsequent deployment of Desig. Below is the project overview, team background, milestones, and other information for your consideration.


Desig is a secure and user-friendly multisig wallet that applies Threshold Signature Scheme (TSS) and Multi-Party Computation (MPC) technologies to divide the master key into shares, ensuring enhanced security against smart contract exploits and private key hacks. By distributing key shares among signers, Desig prevents attackers from recreating the entire master key even if one signer’s key share is compromised. Additionally, Desig offers easy addition or removal of signers, eliminating the tedious process of manual wallet addition and upfront charges associated with traditional multisig wallets.

Product Details
Since 2020, the total amount of money hacked in Web3 is 6.19 billion dollars. In particular, Private Key compromised hacks took away more than 400 million dollars from the crypto market in 2022 alone.

From ImToken’s most recent crypto wallet report, we noticed a trend in crypto users’ fear of security. 29% of users fear their wallets being hacked. 18% fear losing their wallets by their own mistake. 40% are willing to pay up to $100 for a new solution to solve all existing issues with their wallet. 51% are willing to switch to a new brand with added security, in the form of multi-factor authentication.

We are only at the start of 2023 now, and the Web3 market already lost over 180 million dollars over 155 hacks. This situation is why we decided to build Desig Protocol - a blockchain-agnostic multisig solution.

Desig divides the master key into shares and gives each signer a share to keep. When someone proposes a transaction, each signer will use their key shares to approve or reject. If Desig collects enough approvals, the key shares will be combined into a valid master key. This way, even if one signer’s key share is compromised, the attacker won’t be able to recreate the whole master key. Signers can also be added or removed easily. The key shares are automatically sent to all members added, so no time is wasted.

There are no differences between Desig’s combined signature and other single-key wallet’s master key signature. Since all DApps are designed to be compatible with standard single-key wallets, naturally, Desig is compatible with all DApps.

By applying TSS off-chain, Desig is smart contract-less, so there is no point of failure to exploit and no fee is charged in the process. Due to its blockchain-agnostic nature, Desig is naturally scalable. It doesn’t rely on smart contracts, which means no devs are required to bridge Desig to any new chain.


Social Recovery

Desig emerges as a trailblazing multisig solution in this evolving landscape, taking social recovery to new heights. Our unique approach empowers you to recover your wallet password through your trusted social accounts, such as Gmail, Twitter, or Discord. This breakthrough eliminates the need for traditional seed phrases or reliance on trusted guardians, bringing a new dawn of convenience and security in wallet recovery.

Users will be notified of every transaction made and can lock or unlock their cards immediately in-app to ensure their funds are safe and secure.

Tracking & managing

All payment transactions are displayed on the dashboard. Administrators can connect multiple wallets and monitor, analyze, and download payment histories.

Users can view and categorize all your transfers related to their funds:

  • Share their transactions and insights pages publicly as a read-only link to stay transparent with their community.
  • Label smart contract addresses
  • Retroactively edit all historical transfer details.
  • See their transfer categories manifest as graphs and charts in our insights experience.
  • Create custom charts out of any single-select transfer property.

Funding Milestones:

The $50,000 grant could be allocated towards development, marketing, community building, integration with Layer 1, testing, and deployment activities. Around $25,000 could be allocated monthly towards development activities, $10,000 towards marketing and community building activities, $10,000 towards integration activities, and $5,000 towards testing and deployment activities. The remaining $5,000 could be allocated toward final review and reporting activities.
