Gelato Community Update — July 2022

Till next time, au revoir Paris

Bonjour Gelato fam!

Earlier last month, thousands of hackers, builders, and web3 enthusiasts descended on Paris during some of the hottest days of the year for the fifth edition of EthCC: Europe’s biggest Ethereum meet-up. This three-day event welcomed speakers such as Vitalik Buterin, who spoke about the future of the Ethereum network, and was also the site of many interesting events, insightful discussions, and of course- the after-parties!

Amongst the crowd were members of Team Gelato, who attended EthCC to network, strategize, and learn more about the newest developments in the ever-changing landscape of Web3. This conference was particularly exciting as it was an opportunity for members of Team Gelato to meet in person (some for the very first time!) and get to know each other in real life instead of via a screen or messaging app. Here’s a snap of Team Gelato below!

During the conference, we took special pride in demonstrating our newest product, Gelato Relay, which enables applications to offer a fully gasless user experience. We held a special Gelato raffle, where participants used Gelato Ops to mint a free NFT, and if they minted the special Golden Gelato, they’d win bragging rights (and $250 worth of GEL). The catch- they needed to show Team Gelato the NFT before it melted in order to claim their prize.

Overall, it was a wonderful experience seeing how our community is just as passionate as we are about growing Gelato into the best version of itself. What makes us unique isn’t just what we offer, but also the culture we’ve created in which every team member is equally passionate about building a decentralized future, and is driven to make Gelato a hub for web3 developers who need to scale and operate their projects in a trust-minimising fashion.

July Performance Recap

In July, 277,862 transactions were executed by Gelato — bringing the total transaction count up to 2.67 million. In comparison to June overall transaction count declined by 13% MoM.

In case you’re wondering how Optimism automates their smart contracts using Gelato’s world class automation infrastructure:

Introducing Drippie: Drippie is a mechanism for how Optimism handles on chain interactions, which focuses on combining various triggers with actions, allowing these actions to execute only upon certain conditions. However, services are still required to trigger these actions when their requisite conditions are met. Drippie integrates Gelato as the primary layer for automating these programmable interactions.

We currently run Drippie on top of Gelato and we’ve been very happy with Gelato’s performance (thanks Gelato! nice work 🙂). Although we don’t expect issues from Gelato any time soon, we’ll likely look to integrate other providers as a backup to guarantee that drips always execute in a timely manner.
