Solana Launches 'Blinks': Crypto Transactions Directly from Websites via Shareable Links

Solana has introduced a new feature called Solana Actions and blockchain links (blinks), allowing users to execute crypto transactions directly from any website via shareable URLs or QR codes. This innovation, unveiled by the Solana Foundation on June 25, aims to seamlessly integrate blockchain functionality into web interactions. Users can perform a variety of actions such as purchasing NFTs, tipping creators, receiving payments, voting, staking, and swapping assets without leaving the website they are visiting. The feature leverages developer tools provided by Dialect, including self-hosted signing sites and SDKs, ensuring secure transaction handling. Solana's initiative includes safety measures such as whitelisting domains of trusted partners like Jupiter, Helium, Truffle, Phantom, and Backpack, enhancing user confidence in transaction security and reliability.
