Berlin, Germany – Safe, the innovative smart wallet infrastructure team behind Safe{Core}, which secures over $100 billion in digital assets on Safe{Wallet}, has unveiled the Safe{Core} Gas Station program in collaboration with Pimlico. This initiative aims to cover network transaction costs (gas fees) for early-stage developers building with smart accounts, supported by leading blockchains like Polygon PoS and Gnosis Chain.

The Safe{Core} Gas Station program allocates $250k in gas fee credits, with $200k earmarked for Polygon PoS developers and $50k for Gnosis Chain developers. By leveraging the ERC-4337 standard for account abstraction, originally conceptualized by Vitalik Buterin and Ethereum developers, Safe{Core} aims to enhance user experience and security benefits across the blockchain ecosystem.
“The launch of Safe{Core} Gas Station is a pivotal step in our mission to democratize digital ownership. Just as users don’t bear AWS costs in Web2 apps, they shouldn’t in Web3. By incentivizing developers on leading platforms like Polygon and Gnosis Chain, we aim to significantly improve the EVM user experience.”

Lukas Schor, Co-founder at Safe
Kristof Gazso, Founder at Pimlico, added, “Our objective with this partnership is to empower Web3 developers to focus on innovation. Safe is spearheading a future rooted in account abstraction, equipping developers with the tools needed to create secure, user-centric experiences.”

The program not only reduces early user acquisition costs through sponsored transactions but also fosters acquisition campaigns and frictionless user onboarding. It welcomes developers building on Safe{Core} or using Safe smart contracts, with Pimlico acting as the paymaster for fee coverage.

Web3 developers interested in participating can apply for the Safe{Core} Gas Station program and access further details at safe.global/gas-station.
