What is WalletFi?
WalletFi is a narrative surrounding enhanced smart wallet applications that prioritize high security and improved user experiences through account abstraction technology. Smart wallets also integrate financial tools, allowing users to lend, borrow, swap, and more like on traditional exchanges while retaining full control over their assets.
What is Account Abstraction?
Account Abstraction is a breakthrough technology that simplifies on-chain operations and enhances security. Unlike traditional wallets, where users have to manage multiple private keys and interact directly with smart contracts, Account Abstraction introduces a layer of abstraction, eliminating these complexities. This approach not only simplifies the user experience but also reduces the risk of errors and security breaches.
Holdstation and Account Abstraction
Holdstation was built as a “native project” of the zkSync ecosystem, inheriting core values and Account Abstraction technology of this layer-2 protocol:
- Paymaster: allows users to pay gas fees with stablecoins like USDC/USDT across all activities and experience gas-free trading positions, including Crypto ($5,000), Forex ($20,000), and Commodities ($20,000).
- One-click Trading: enables fast and low-cost transactions by batching multiple transactions into a single proof and submitting them to the Ethereum network.
- Spending Limit: set maximum spending amounts for transactions, preventing unauthorized access and potential losses.
- Social Login: allows users to create accounts using their existing social media credentials. This eliminates the need for lengthy KYC procedures and complex seed phrase management, making it easier for newcomers to enter the DeFi space.
- Seedless Recovery: users can break down their encrypted seed phrase into multiple fragments, storing them separately for enhanced security.
