Account Abstraction: Particle Network

Account Abstraction: Particle Network

Particle Network offers a comprehensive set of tools and services designed to enhance the user experience of decentralized applications (dApps) on ZetaChain.

Particle Network's stack natively supports ERC-4337 Account Abstraction, empowering developers to implement smart accounts from the initial user onboarding to the final construction and sponsorship of user operations.

Particle Network offers Wallet as a Service (WaaS), an alternative to extension-based wallets, allowing users to create non-custodial accounts using mechanisms similar to those of traditional web apps, for example, social login and email/password. WaaS are embedded into web apps, so users can interact with dApps without having to install any additional software.

Main components of the Particle Network stack:

  • Wallet as a Service (WaaS). WaaS allows a user to sign in to a dApp using social login or email/password. Within "classic" Wallet-as-a-Service, an Externally-Owned-Account (EOA) is the ending point after login. Alternatively, using account abstraction this EOA is used as an intermediary and instead the user is assigned a smart account to use for interaction.
  • Account abstraction (AA)
    • Bundler. As apart of the AA stack Particle Network offers an open-source Bundler in which all "useroOperations" are constructed and sent.
    • Paymaster. Alongside the Bundler, Particle Network also offers a paymaster for multi-chain gas sponsorship.

Particle Network's stack is modular, so developers can choose to use only the components they need.
