How the Trust Wallet SDK Powers Seamless DeFi for Frontier
Learn how the TrustSDK can help applications provide easy access to Web 3.0 applications and the burgeoning decentralized finance market.
A little under a year ago, Frontier Wallet integrated Trust Wallet’s SDK to enable seamless and secure transaction signing for DeFi users.
Discover how the Trust Wallet SDK can help applications provide access to the decentralized finance market and what Frontier brings to the table for DeFi users.
Frontier: A Next-Generation Mobile DeFi App
Frontier Wallet is a user-friendly mobile app that enables individuals to take part in the booming multi-billion dollar DeFi market.
Using Frontier, users can manage multiple wallets, access a range of protocols, and earn interest on a number of different digital assets. The wallet also allows you to track some of the most active DeFi protocols and sends you notifications about your invested funds, such as CDP liquidation alerts.
Additionally, you can use Frontier to interact with NFT platforms, such as OpenSea, should you be interested in buying pixel art or a crypto collectible card from Sorare.
Frontier’s mission is to bring the fragmented DeFi markets into a single app that anyone with a smartphone can use. With its broad range of in-app features and an ambitious roadmap, the Singapore-based startup is well-positioned to play a role in the future of DeFi.
What is TrustSDK?
Trust Wallet’s software development kit, TrustSDK, enables crypto apps and decentralized applications (DApps) to allow users to sign blockchain transactions and messages while retaining complete control of their funds.
For example, if you are building a decentralized application on Ethereum, you can use TrustSDK instead of having to build your own wallet infrastructure.
Conversely, if you are developing an app that interacts with a number of different blockchains — like Frontier Wallet — you can implement the TrustSDK to enable your users to seamlessly and securely sign blockchain transactions.
As a result, a number of applications have already integrated Trust Wallet’s technology to improve user experience and fund security for their customers.
Building with TrustSDK: Here’s What’s Possible
TrustSDK enables mobile app developers to seamlessly integrate Trust Wallet technology into their Android or iOS applications.
iOS developers can implement the Trust SDK through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line pod ‘TrustSDK’ to your Podfile and run “pod install.” For further instructions on iOS integration, click here.
Android developers have to add jitpack to their root gradle file at the end of repositories and add the dependency implementation ‘com.github.TrustWallet:TrustSDK-Android:$version to their module to get started. For further instructions on Android integration, click here.
Once TrustSDK has been integrated into your application, your users will be able to sign transactions and messages to interact with decentralized applications on a wide range of blockchains, including Algorand, Binance Smart Chain, and Ethereum. You can find the full list of supported blockchains here.
Previously, DApps were reliant on browser applications that delivered bad or broken mobile user experiences. But with Trust Wallet’s SDK, the complex part of building a mobile wallet experience for Web 3.0 is taken off the hands of developers who simply want to focus on building the best app possible.
“All Trust Wallet transactions happen through Trust SDK, not just Ethereum all chains. Using Trust SDK gives the confidence for users to explore all things DeFi with the security, extensibility, and comfort of Trust Wallet.” – Vetrichelvan Jeyapalpandy, Fontier CTO
TrustSDK has been created in a way that makes it easy for developers to tap into the robustness and security of Trust Wallet, alleviating the need to write new code to create a secure Web 3.0 experience.
Frontier and $FRONT: Enabling Magical DeFi Experiences
The implementation of Trust SDK into Frontier Wallet allows the app’s users to seamlessly interact with Web 3.0 while retaining complete control over their funds.
From depositing BNB into PancakeSwap liquidity pools and investing across yield-generating pools with DeFiZap to earning up to 13% APY staking digital assets or buying esoteric crypto art on OpenSea, Frontier brings many of the decentralized finance market’s best products and features under one roof.
The application arguably also has the best mobile NFT management and view experience.
While viewing crypto art and digital collectibles has been far from eye-catching on most mobile apps, Frontier makes it possible even for crypto art philistines to appreciate a digital illustration of what Satoshi or the cuteness of a recently bred virtual kitten.
Combined with native staking for a wide range of cryptoassets on multiple blockchains (including Binance Smart Chain), and the ability to track and manage multiple DeFi positions makes Frontier a must-have app for Web 3.0 users.
Get in $FRONT
What’s more, Frontier has also launched its own token, called $FRONT, to incentivize individuals to join open finance.
“$FRONT is Frontier’s future native-chain token that is designed to incentivize entry in DeFi, especially for smaller purse players who are unable to participate due to prohibitive costs,” the project’s team explains.
The token’s utilities include:
Staking to secure the project’s decentralized key management Frontier Chain
Taking part in governance decisions via $gFRONT
The ability to acquire and create non-fungible tokens (NFTs)
Discounted token sends and conversions
Currently, however, the “hottest” use of $FRONT tokens is as an asset in decentralized liquidity pools, such as SushiSwap and PancakeSwap.
On PancakeSwap, for example, yield farmers can earn 287%+ in CAKE tokens for depositing $FRONT and BNB at the time of writing. For yield-hungry DeFi users, these are enticing yields.
Additionally, $FRONT tokenholders can stake $FRONT to mint $USDF1, a new $FRONT-backed synthetic stable asset worth one US dollar per token.
Through a new partnership with OIN Finance and by entering into OINDAO, $FRONT holders can mint the new stablecoin that will “eventually redeemable for a variety of other liquid assets like DAI, USDC, USDT, and even NFTs.”
Frontier is taking big steps towards becoming one of the DeFi market’s go-to apps, in part because of its integration of Trust SDK.
