On March 16th, digital identity authentication company Spruce announced the launch of its first authentication plugin for logging in to the Discourse forum using an ETH 0.03%-news/">Ethereum account.
The plugin is open source and supports running the official version of the self-hosted Discourse forum to let its users authenticate with an Ethereum account, including registering the Discourse forum with an Ethereum account or linking to an existing account.
Spruce will continue to explore how to make the plugin work with forums hosted and managed by first and third parties. Spruce is an open-source software company that builds encryption tools to help users manage identities and data across platforms.
Spruce, which won a tender jointly launched by the Ethereum Foundation and the Ethereum Domain Name System (ENS) in September last year, will develop technology for logging into third-party web applications through an Ethereum account.
