Gelato Community Update — May 2022

Thank you for tuning in to yet another Community Update where we discuss all developments and achievements over the last month, as well as continue to align our focus and vision into the future with all of you Gelato lovers.

🔁 Gelato Relay: A Fast and Reliable Transaction API

In May we successfully rolled out Gelato Relay, which has been largely anticipated by many builders across all EVM blockchains.

With the introduction of the Gelato Relay SDK, users and developers are able to get transactions mined in a fast, reliable, and secure way between networks. Handling reliable cross-chain infrastructure often becomes a complex and time-consuming effort, especially as the nature of interacting with different blockchains brings upon a variety of difficulties and unexpected state changes. These complexities are best left to the experts in smart contract automation, Gelato.

Not only does Gelato solve many of the difficulties that we may experience moving between blockchains, but we also provide additional features and optimizations that make relaying a seamless and user-friendly experience. With the addition of gasless transactions and flexible payment methods, users are able to pay for transactions with a broader range of tokens with support for over 10 different EVM chains.

Tens of thousands of transactions are already being executed daily using Gelato’s Relay infrastructure.

🔒 The GEL Lockdrop

GEL Lockdrop process

If you haven’t already heard about the ongoing GEL Token Lockdrop, let’s get you up to speed. Up until June 10th, all $GEL token holders are able to lock their $GEL for 3 months to receive the Arrakis’ $SPICE Airdrop.

At the time of writing, 19.5% of all $GEL in circulation has been locked. Currently, Arrakis’ Airdrop is the most anticipated airdrop amassing a new high TVL of $980M — all without a token. A more detailed breakdown surrounding the $GEL Lockdrop can be found here.

This is one airdrop you don’t want to miss.

Live integrations and users, Gelato Ecosystem May 2022

Here’s our monthly integrations spotlight:

  • ZED RUN integrates Gelato for an improved automated racehorse breeding experience. ZED’s fantasy horses climb the Polygon Leaderboard in less than two weeks, claiming #1 with over 10,000 Executions processed via Gelato.
  • Alluo, a yield optimization and liquidity protocol sets up regular automation tasks for accurate hourly price resolver updates. A simple yet necessary task.
  • MakerDAO further decentralizes internal operations by integrating Gelato to automatize critical tasks such as updating debt ceilings necessary for the stabilization of DAI.
  • Float uses Gelato to systematically update the market data of their floating asset exposure mechanisms. These frequently called tasks further enhance the accuracy and stability of the protocol for a continuously reliable trading experience.
