Discord Adds Solana Integration for Linked Roles, Boosts Web3 Identity

The latest Solana partnership with Discord brings Web3 identity alongside traditional Web2 idenity.

Solana is Now on Discord

Discord has added Solana wallet integration to its Linked Roles features. The move is a big plus for Solana gamers and the Web3 community.

Users can now, based on the December 12 announcement, link their Solana wallet and qualify for roles on Discord. The new integration will use metadata such as holdings, number of txs, or age of the wallet to like the Solana wallets with the Discord IDs. Discord moderators can use these metrics to enable roles inside servers.

Many in the Solana community have celebrated the arrival of the integration on Twitter. Austin Federa, Head of Communications at Solana Foundation, is excited to see what the Discord community can create from the integration.

Linked Roles give users on Discord a ton of flexibility to verify their identity through blockchain and open the various abilities that the roles provide.

Could NFT integration be next?

“Starting today, we’re excited to share that we’re giving Connections a huge functionality boost for Discord users and developers with Linked Roles: a new type of role that’s created by authenticating your profile with an account outside of Discord,” wrote the Discord team in its Dec. 12 blog post.

The move further molds the Web3 identity into Web2 and traditional gaming platforms. A user’s Solana address can now be displayed right next to their Spotify playlist, PlayStation or Xbox username, and more.

This further obfuscates the human and state identity with the digital world. This is a major step for Web3 identity and another step toward the network state.

Discord is also just the latest big-name integration for the Solana network. The Solana team announced Google Cloud as a new validator last month during their annual BreakPoint conference. There have also been partnerships with Instagram, Helium, and projects associated with Jump and Coral.
