Gasless Transactions

Saakuru is revolutionizing the Web3 onboarding experience by eliminating one of the most significant barriers to entry: gas fees. By ensuring that users never have to deal with these fees, Saakuru significantly enhances the user experience (UX). This approach not only simplifies the process for new users but also makes the transition to Web3 seamless and more appealing. As a result, Saakuru is setting a new standard for accessibility in the blockchain space, paving the way for broader adoption and a smoother user journey into the world of Web3.

Imagine enabling users to mint their very first NFT item in a game without the customary requirement of spending money on gas fees. This innovative approach allows for a seamless introduction to the world of Web3 gaming, where users can mint or claim crypto earnings without the financial barrier of gas fees. By eliminating this common hurdle, we endeavor to create an experience where accessibility and ease of use are paramount, making the transition into the digital economy smoother for everyone involved.

How does it work?

Gas fees play a critical role in maintaining the security and efficiency of a blockchain network. They act as a deterrent against spam transactions and ensure that miners are compensated for the computational resources used to process and validate transactions. Saakuru leverages a delegate model to revolutionize the user experience by covering gas fees for users. In this model, both Saakuru and the developers participating in the platform bear the cost of the gas fees, thereby removing a significant financial barrier for new users. This approach is distinct from account abstraction, where the option to cover gas fees for users is left to the developers' discretion. By adopting this model, Saakuru ensures that the benefits of the blockchain are accessible to a broader audience, promoting a more inclusive ecosystem.

Saakuru Model vs EIP-4337 (Account Abstraction)

While EIP-4337 offers an innovative approach to account abstraction on the Ethereum blockchain, facilitating more user-friendly experiences, it also presents several potential issues that could affect its efficacy and adoption:

  1. Complexity for Developers: Implementing EIP-4337 can be complex for developers, requiring them to navigate new layers of abstraction and potentially redesign their applications to accommodate the new account models. This complexity might slow down development and increase the barrier to entry for new developers in the ecosystem.

  2. Dependence on Developers for Gas Fees: Although EIP-4337 allows for transactions where the gas fee can be paid by someone other than the account owner, it largely leaves this decision in the hands of developers or applications. This could lead to inconsistent experiences for users across different platforms, where some may offer gasless transactions, and others might not.

  3. Security Concerns: With the flexibility of account abstraction, there might be new security considerations. The shift in how transactions are authorized and who pays for gas can introduce novel attack vectors, requiring additional safeguards from wallet draining and increasing the complexity of smart contract development.

Meanwhile, Saakuru addresses these issues head-on with a unique model, providing a more streamlined and user-friendly approach:

  • Simplicity and Accessibility: By automatically covering gas fees for all users, Saakuru eliminates the need for developers to implement complex mechanisms to support such features, making the development process simpler and more accessible for companies from both sides - Web2 & Web3.

  • Uniform User Experience: Saakuru ensures a consistent experience across all applications on its platform by removing gas fees for users, making Web3 technologies more approachable for a broader audience. This uniformity is key to attracting users who are new to blockchain and crypto, reducing friction in onboarding.

  • Enhanced Security: By centralizing the handling of gas fees and focusing on a secure, delegate model, we implement robust security measures platform-wide by design. This reduces the burden on individual developers to secure their mechanisms for covering gas fees and ensures a safer ecosystem for users.

In summary, Saakuru's approach mitigates the complexities and potential security concerns associated with EIP-4337's account abstraction by offering a simplified, uniform, and secure platform for users and developers alike. This not only enhances the user experience but also promotes wider adoption of Web3 technologies by making them more accessible and less intimidating for newcomers.
