Why should I use Squads Protocol?

If you are looking for an affordable and secure multisig to manage and store your on-chain assets and/or programs, Squads Protocol was built for you. We are suitable for teams, DAOs, subDAOs, and secure individuals looking for security and co-ownership features not provided by normal wallets.

What is a Squad?

A Squad is a programmable multi-signature wallet that allows teams and individuals to take full control of their treasury and developer assets.

Which wallets does Squads Protocol support?

We support Phantom, Backpack, Glow, Solflare, Exodus, Coinbase wallet, Ledger and Wallet connect. If you have a request for a wallet integration, please reach out to us directly.

I’m getting an error and can’t create a Squad/create a transaction/sign a transaction.

This can happen due to several reasons. This is a general guideline based on our experience of the most frequent problems and solutions, if those steps are not working for you, please contact us on Discord in the support channel or create a ticket.

  1. Make sure you are connected with the right wallet, which is already added to a Squad.

  2. Make sure to be connected to the right network. Squads Protocol is running on Solana mainnet. Check the network setting of your wallet to see to which chain are you connected.

  3. Make sure that you have enough SOL in your personal wallet (not a Squad’s vault) to pay Solana network fees.

  4. If you are using Ledger and all of your transactions are automatically declined with an error, please make sure that you have enabled blind signing on the Ledger. Also, make sure that your software is up-to-date.

I have created a Squad, but I don’t see it in the Squads list.

If you have created a Squad and it does not appear in the Squads list, please wait a few minutes and refresh the page. The initial creation of a Squad can take up to 15 minutes to show up due to network performance.

I’ve created a Squad, but can’t find my private key, can you share it with me?

Squads vaults are not traditional hot wallets, they are PDAs (Program derived addresses), meaning there are no private keys associated with them. Please refer to this section of Solana docs for more info on PDAs.

PDAs are addresses generated to be controlled only by one specific program. Squads’ vaults are owned and controlled by the Squads program. If you are looking to deploy a Squad and have control over the program, please reach out to us.

Is Squads Protocol permissionless?

Yes, Squads Protocol is permissionless to interact with. You can connect your wallet and create a Squad at any given point in time.

Can I create a Squad and gate access to it with NFTs?

We don’t yet support the creation of NFT-gated Squads; owners are added to a Squad via their public keys. If you are keen on having this feature integrated, please reach out to us directly.
