Safe and Pimlico launch the Safe{Core} Multi-Chain Gas Station program with Polygon PoS and Gnosis Chain to sponsor gas fees for EVM users. The initiative offers $250k in gas fee credits to developers, aiming to simplify the usability of Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) smart accounts.

Zug, Switzerland July 9th, 2024 Safe Ecosystem Foundation, the steward of the community behind Safe, the  smart wallet infrastructure, with more than $100 billion in value of digital assets secured , has today launched the Safe{Core} Gas Station, a program covering network transaction costs (gas fees) for early-stage developers seeking to build with smart accounts. The Safe Ecosystem Foundation has collaborated with Pimlico, the world's most popular account abstraction infrastructure platform, in the design of this program and is onboarding chain collaborators, including Polygon PoS and Gnosis Chain, to support developers building across the blockchain ecosystem.

Conceptualized by Vitalik Buterin and other core Ethereum developers, the ERC-4337 standard facilitates account abstraction, enabling user experience and security benefits via smart accounts. The Safe{Core} Gas Station seeks to promote awareness and convert early-stage developers to use ERC-4337 as the standard for user accounts by alleviating the financial constraints of early development. 

Lukas Schor, Co-founder at Safe, said, “The launch of the Safe{Core} Gas Station marks a significant milestone in our mission to make ownership accessible to everyone. Users don’t pay the AWS bills of web2 apps and shouldn’t have to do the same on web3. By incentivizing  developers, with blockchains like Polygon and Gnosis Chain as leaders in account abstraction, we aim to move the needle on EVM user experience significantly.” 

We're proud to have Polygon PoS as one the first participants in Safe's new program, offering essential gas fee credit incentives to developers," said Marc Boiron, Polygon Labs CEO. "This initiative aims to significantly simplify the usability of the Ethereum Virtual Machine by supporting the development of Safe smart accounts.

Kristof Gazso, Founder at Pimlico, said, “Our goal with this program is to support Web3 developers and enable them to focus on what they do best—building groundbreaking dApps and contributing to the future of blockchain technology. Safe is leading the journey towards a future underpinned by account abstraction, putting the right tools and incentives in the hands of developers to create the best user-centric and secure experiences.”

The Safe{Core} Gas Station program will reduce early user acquisition costs through sponsored transactions, offer opportunities for acquisition campaigns and frictionless user onboarding, and create a supportive environment to focus on establishing business models and driving adoption. The program is available to any developer building on collaborating chains or projects utilizing Safe{Core} or Safe smart contracts, with Pimlico the chosen paymaster for covering fees.

Web3 developers are invited to apply for the Safe{Core} Gas Station program and find further information by visiting: safe.global/gas-station.
