Frontier is integrating with Avalanche to natively support AVAX staking, NFTs, and TrueUSD (TUSD) in the Frontier Application (slated for completion in March 2021). Not only will this expand the wallet options and functionality for users already within Avalanche’s ecosystem, but it will also empower more users to seamlessly access decentralized finance (DeFi) applications within it.
Frontier is a chain-agnostic DeFi aggregator that enables users to manage all of their DeFi applications and assets in a safe, simple portal.
Since Summer 2020, Frontier prioritized wallet composability to streamline the user experience for blockchain wallet users. Wallet composability enables users to choose the desired wallet to perform certain operations, and with TxLink, Frontier is minimizing the complexities of wallet management. The ultimate goal is to bring a single user’s wallet all in one place, while also natively enabling functions like interacting with decentralized apps and other on-chain actions.
Avalanche is the first smart contracts platform that can confirm transactions in under one second, is interoperable with all Ethereum tooling, and capable of throughput orders of magnitude greater than existing blockchain networks (4,500+ transactions/second).
It achieves strong safety guarantees without compromising decentralization or requiring sharding and enables millions of independent validators to participate as full block producers.
To date, Avalanche’s high performance attracted decentralized projects looking to escape the pain points of slow transaction throughput and settlement speeds of legacy blockchain platforms. bZx and Prosper are early movers with many more to come.
Frontier is receiving funding support through the Avalanche-X grant program, a moonshot accelerator for developers building decentralized applications on Avalanche. The grant will be used to deliver the following functionalities:
- Avalanche Integration: integrating Avalanche in Frontier iOS and Android applications
- $AVAX Staking: native staking of AVAX in Frontier iOS and Android apps.
- Support for NFTs: enabling users to track, send and receive NFTs on Avalanche
- Support for TrueUSD (TUSD): Frontier will support TUSD stablecoin launching natively on Avalanche.
