Global fintech company, Circle, has introduced a new feature designed to simplify the process of creating Web3 applications for conventional developers.
Circle’s New Web3 Development Platform
According to the report, this initiative, as stated in an announcement and a related social media post on October 19, will enable developers to eliminate the intricacies associated with developing Web3 applications.
‘Smart Contract Platform’
The recently unveiled tool, named the “Smart Contract Platform,” empowers developers to utilize pre-screened code templates and offers the choice of a console or REST APIs for deploying smart contracts. This has the potential to simplify the process for Web2 programmers transitioning to Web3 development.
Using these templates, developers will have the capability to generate contracts for non-fungible tokens (NFTs), blockchain loyalty initiatives, as well as interactions with decentralized finance projects like Uniswap, and even Circle’s stablecoin contracts.
Upon creating the contract, developers can deploy it to Polygon through a “no-code” console integrated into the platform, eliminating the need to write a “migration” script for contract deployment. The “no-code” console is currently unavailable for Ethereum or Avalanche, as per the announcement.
As outlined in the platform’s documentation, developers have the option to deploy a customized contract that doesn’t rely on one of the provided templates. However, in such cases, they are required to furnish the compiled bytecode for the contract.
Circle’s ‘Gas Station’ Tool
In addition to this, Circle has introduced a “Gas Station” tool, which allows developers to cover their users’ gas fees, potentially streamlining the user onboarding process. It eliminates the need for users to pre-fund their wallets with the native coin of a network. It leverages Ethereum’s account abstraction feature to execute these fee-less transactions.
Moreover, Circle consistently seeks partnerships to both enhance its own growth and provide support to developers. Last month, Circle announced a partnership with Grab Singapore as part of its efforts to enhance its presence in the region in order to establish a connection between Circle’s Web3 platform and Grab Singapore’s Web3 wallet service.
