DApp Builders on the Moonbase Alpha TestNet Can Use Biconomy’s Plug-n-Play Solution for Gasless Transactions to Provide Improved End-User Experiences.
Boston, MA – April 7, 2021 – Moonbeam, the Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform on Polkadot, announced an integration with Biconomy, a multi-chain transaction platform that enables a simplified experience for Web3 projects. This integration serves as a great new resource for DApp developers building on Moonbeam, who can now quickly utilize Biconomy APIs to enable gasless transactions. Thus, their end-users will enjoy an improved experience without having to obtain Moonbeam’s underlying gas token.
Biconomy’s powerful APIs remove many of the complexities that are inherent to Web3 applications by providing gasless meta transactions. This means that end users can make transactions and interact with dApps without worrying about gas and have the ability to pay gas fees in different tokens. These kinds of features result in a drastically improved experience, which is particularly important for those who are new to blockchain.
Moonbeam has proven itself to be an attractive hub for developers that want to expand to Polkadot and already has dozens of integrations and a tight-knit community of builders. Biconomy’s reliable API solution is an excellent addition to the network because it addresses a key point of friction for user adoption — teaching users about the concept of gas and obtaining gas tokens. The integration will allow developers to grow their user base on Moonbeam quickly.
“The Moonbeam and Biconomy teams have a shared focus on driving adoption of Web3 applications with a broader end-user audience. Our shared goal — to improve Web3 application user experiences — makes this a uniquely symbiotic relationship,” says Nate Hamilton, Director of Business Development at Moonbeam. “The Biconomy team has a compelling solution that pairs nicely with the scalability and interoperability of the Moonbeam platform.”
The Biconomy team selected Moonbeam as their expansion point because of its unmatched features and developer integrations. Moonbeam’s powerful Ethereum compatibility, including a full EVM, Web3 RPC, and compatible accounts, means that there are minimal changes needed to re-deploy Biconomy’s existing Ethereum integration to Polkadot. Using Moonbeam as a point of expansion also opens the doors for Biconomy to quickly tap into the rapidly growing developer base and end-users on Polkadot.
“We are incredibly proud to be working with the Moonbeam team to address one of the biggest struggles faced by developers —dealing with gas fees. Our integration will give dApp builders the right tools to provide the best end-user experience,” says Aniket Jindal, COO & co-founder at Biconomy. “We believe that Moonbeam is a fantastic gateway that allows us to reach new developers in the growing Polkadot ecosystem.”
About the Moonbeam Network
Moonbeam is an Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform on the Polkadot network that makes it easy to build natively interoperable applications. This Ethereum compatibility allows developers to deploy existing Solidity smart contracts and DApp frontends to Moonbeam with minimal changes. As a parachain on the Polkadot network, Moonbeam will benefit from the shared security of the Polkadot relay chain and integrations with other chains that are connected to Polkadot. Currently, in active development by PureStake, Moonbeam is expected to reach MainNet by mid-2021. Learn more: https://moonbeam.network/.
