September 2022 will definitely go down as one of the most momentous months in crypto history. With the long-awaited Ethereum merge taking shape and leading blockchains like Algorand and Cardano following suit, it can be easily called the month when Web3 began to scale. As Web3 aligns to welcome its next billion users, the Frontier Wallet team was also building scaling features into our app, announcing the imminent launch of our first browser extension. From the PoS and merge compatible wallet upgrades to the positive feedback the alpha release of Chrome extension is receiving โ€” the Frontier community has a lot to celebrate.

Product Features

๐Ÿค– Frontier Android v5 & v5.1.0 ๐Ÿค–

We launched a major v5 crypto wallet update for our Play Store users and followed that epic release with v5.1 Android crypto wallet release with even more features. Built with full support for the Merge, and all-new cross-chain capabilities, this release was designed to unlock more value across Web3. It also featured new UX improvements powered by our growing partnership with Unstoppable Domains to make human-readable NFT domains for tracking and sending.

iOS users will receive their update as soon as Apple approves it.

โœจ Coming soon: Browser Extension โœจ

Imagine everything you love about the Frontier Wallet mobile experience on your browser. Access all the blockchains you want, in one place. We're building this new wallet chock-full of all the bells and whistles you need to connect with dApps, trade, and enjoy a frictionless Web3 experience.

The alpha is already in the hands of select partners. We are adding more features and listening to feedback closely to deliver the flawless crypto wallet experience you expect from Frontier. The community beta should drop in October; watch our Twitter for more updates.

๐Ÿ’ช PoS Merge Compatible ๐Ÿ’ช

As the global Ethereum community celebrated the complete transition to the Consensus Layer (Proof-of-Stake) mechanism, the Frontier product team also celebrated as we saw months of work to ensure a seamless experience for our users come to fruition. We worked with the Ethereum, L2 chain, and various communities to deliver at the dawn of this new era.

๐Ÿ’ต New payment methods ๐Ÿ’ต

Buying crypto got a whole lot easier on Frontier Wallet with the addition of Binance Connect and Juno Pay. Both services offer a significant number of options for you to choose how you wish to buy or even off-ramp your crypto. Binance Connect brings the powerhouse of the world's largest crypto exchange behind it and offers users wide-ranging global payment methods compatibility. Juno Pay's instant on-ramp and off-ramp via cards, CashApp, and Venmo make it a tempting avenue for users already using those ecosystems.

๐ŸŒ‰ Bridge from Router and XY Finance ๐ŸŒ‰

As Frontier Wallet gains popularity amongst users for its swapping and bridging capabilities, we are happy to reinforce that strength with even more leading protocol integrations. In addition, we are excited to offer our users the fast, secure, and decentralized bridging features provided by Router Protocol and XY Finance.

๐Ÿ” Swap on Solana with Jupiter ๐Ÿ”

To offer our growing Solana user base a one-stop solution to meet their crypto-swapping needs, we were pleased to integrate Jupiter into Frontier. This new integration should be an exciting addition for the Frontier community by offering liquidity aggregation services and a wide selection of tokens and fast routes.

๐Ÿ›Ÿ Support portal goes live ๐Ÿ›Ÿ

With so many new users joining the Frontier community and even more features added each week, we felt our new and existing users would appreciate a robust Frontier Wallet support portal. Covering all the key areas of the product and some pieces on education, we will continue to build the support portal further in the coming months. We hope you enjoy it.
