This article covers only the first step in auth pipeline.

In case of simple wallet activation - there's nothing we can use to authenticate on the backend.

Ethereum address can be spoofed.

What should be done is an additional signature check.

I only wanted to check frontend-only login for Metamask and this is a good start. You can create the following resources for backend auth :D

amazing stuff Akash, thank you! just curious, what are some of the resources we would need to incorporate some sort of backend auth?

also, is there any way to make a screen/window/button visible when a user has successfully connected to metamask?

thanks again for everything - i really appreciate it.

Could look here: dev.to/dabit3/the-complete-guide-t... or here: m1guelpf.blog/VBlaOTPAxQNFHjl5n-C3...

also, is there any way to make a screen/window/button visible when a user has successfully connected to metamask?

Look at Conditinal Rendering in React.

Cheers!
