Replace user/pass login with Cardano transaction as confirmation

Hi all,
This idea just popup in my head but i would like to know if it is possible?
Instead of typical User/pass login, is it possible to replace it with a cardano transaction?
typical website login:

login im thinking about:
server side will know who you are from your wallet address that you will be using for confirmation. sending a small transaction to this address will verify that you are who you are.

You don’t even need to broadcast a transaction for this. You just need to being able to sign a message using your private key and sending the signed message to the website. This is already used by multiple other systems on the internet.


Is there a way to easily implement this for a website of forum like this one? Would love to use a Cardano wallet to login as an alternative to a Google- or Facebook-login.

Hi Kobayashi,

I think it possible with the nami wallet [1]. Your website can query the wallet for a login. For an example of this see [2].

Let us know if you made it work.
