๐ŸŽ‰ All aboard for The Ethereum Merge ๐ŸŽ‰

Our team has been working with various communities, including the Ethereum, dApp, and L2 chains, to ensure our users had a flawless transition into the post-merge Ethereum experience.

We were tracking the events closely and are pleased to report as the Ethereum Mainneet completely transitioned to the Consensus Layer (Proof-of-Stake) from the Proof-of-Work mechanism โ€” the Frontier Wallet performed perfectly as expected.

While some dApps and functions were paused for a few hours during the final leg of The Merge, we are already seeing many functions being restored. These include functions like cross-chain bridging, any-to-any asset swaps, staking, buying crypto, and more.

Ethereum was and continues to be a leading priority for Frontier Wallet, and our users will keep seeing more groundbreaking innovations and features added as upgrades to the blockchain happen. From being one of the first wallets to support NFTs fully, native token staking, positions aggregation across protocols, and seamless dApp connectivity, you will see exciting new developments at Frontier in the coming months.

๐Ÿ” Solana Swap with Jupiter ๐Ÿ”

As a leading liquidity aggregator for Solana, Jupiter today offers the widest selection of tokens, while also discovering the best routes between any token pair. Frontier is growing in popularity within the Solana community, and improving this function was a popular request we decided to address at the earliest.

The native token swap function within Frontier Wallet now offers an unparalleled experience and offers:

  • The best prices for token swaps
  • Up-to-date tokens and liquidity sources
  • Dynamic caching offers a balance of speed and precision

This feature is now available natively in your Solana wallet with no additional Frontier fees.

๐ŸŽ Router Protocol for cross-chain ease ๐ŸŽ

The hugely popular Router Protocol is now deeply integrated into Frontier Wallet within the DeFi Explorer function of the app. The latest integration with Frontier Wallet allows users to quickly access Router Protocol's offerings via a simplified and intuitive new UI. Router now serves Frontier users an all-new experience to bridge crypto assets between chains faster, cheaper, and more securely.

As leading innovators build out key blockchain interoperability capabilities, Router Protocol continues to enhance its already robust cross-chain suite with messaging and adding support for even more networks and tokens.

There is even more excitement brewing, and we will announce more exciting news emerging from our partnership in the coming weeks. So stay tuned to our Twitter handles for the latest.

๐Ÿ”ฅ XY Finance's DEX & Bridge now live ๐Ÿ”ฅ

A community-driven platform built to solve the "liquidity problem," XY Finance seeks out the best routes while also incentivizing liquidity providers to stack yields steadily. Frontier Wallet's integration of XY Finance under the DeFi Explorer function offers users one-stop access to the cross-chain aggregator anytime, within the wallet itself.

More users are turning to Frontier Wallet for their swapping and bridging needs. As demand grows, we are pleased to offer the fast, secure, and decentralized capabilities XY Finance offers to our users.

๐Ÿช™ Swap any two tokens between Klaytn & HECO Chains ๐Ÿช™

Continuing to enhance our support for the Klaytn network and HECO chain communities, we have now integrated a seamless mechanism that allows you to easily swap any two assets between the chains.

Swap any two token between Klaytn & HECO chains

Kalytn continues to deliver on its goal to accelerate metaverse and GameFi development by attracting over 271+ projects to its growing ecosystem. Its technology and ease of use is already growing in popularity amongst Frontier users, even as existing users enjoy the advantages of the interoperability offered by Frontier Wallet.

Frontier users have been enjoying their native wallets on Heco's (HECO Chain) decentralized, high-efficiency and energy-efficient public chain for a while now. As part of its mission to empower developers to build stronger cross-chain solutions, it now uses its interoperability and EVM compatibility to further offer seamless access to tokens on Frontier.

โฌ‡๏ธ Import multiple EVM-compatible wallets โฌ‡๏ธ

In an enhancement for our already popular wallet import feature, the Frontier Wallet app now supports importing all the EVM-compatible wallets associated with a private key.

Import multiple EVM-compatible wallets

When users migrate their wallets to Frontier, they do so for many reasons. While the user experience, ease-of-use, and security are key, another factor is the consistency and ability to manage all their assets, NFTs, and positions without having to switch between multiple apps and services. Now you can select the import 'All Wallets' option under Import and get access to all your Ethereum Virtual Machine compatible wallets within seconds.

Apart from being an OG Ethereum wallet, Frontier is also a leader in supporting all popular L2 chains. More EVM-compatible chains are being added each month.

๐Ÿคณ QR Codes to go please ๐Ÿคณ

You can now save, screenshot, or download your QR codes to access them on the go. Frontier Wallet allows you to scan codes by opening saved images in your phone gallery. Use this feature carefully, and only use codes you can trust. Remember to disconnect and review transactions carefully using your Frontier Wallet.

โœจ WalletConnect between apps and other improvements โœจ

The new Frontier Wallet transaction controller has some new tricks up its sleeve. It can now find and report any mismatch in your holdings between Frontier and other third-party wallets. This can go a long way in finding any discrepancies and verifying if your precious crypto assets are being accurately displayed and managed.
