fiExploring Simplifying DeFi Investments with Revolutionary AA technology

Nov 28, 2023

TechBullion Ethereum gas fees have been a significant challenge for DeFi users. The average gas fee on this blockchain has more than doubled in a year , from 13.58 last year to 28.53 Gwei today. At the same time, gas fees on Ethereum are extremely volatile. When the network becomes congested, gas fees can go up by 300-400%. This obstacle often acts as a deterrent, especially for those transitioning from Web2 platforms. However, innovative solutions such as Account Abstraction (AA) wallets , originally proposed by the Ethereum core team, are paving the way for a more efficient and user-friendly experience. AA wallets can be set up effortlessly with just a single click using familiar platforms like Google or social networks. This innovation streamlines the onboarding process for Web2 audiences entering the DeFi space and plays a pivotal role in reducing gas fee costs. AA models are already being used by Rivo , an emerging platform that merges a multichain smart-contract wallet with a DeFi marketplace, offering seamless access to earning opportunities within DeFi. What is Rivo? Rivo is a smart contract wallet and a DeFi marketplace built on AA framework.
