@certainlyNotHeisenberg I think you got everyone confused by adding a bunch of use cases that are not related authentication.

@Firstyear we only need to sign using ECDSA p256 a small piece of data. The is no verification needed. Also `nonces` are always present, they are required to prevent reply attacks.

@equalsJeffH the need is cryptographic signatures, web3 are websites. They don't use a database as a backend, but they are still websites.
