🎮ERC-4337 ♥️ Intents

This content illustrates how various AA benefits apply to BalloonDog's decentralized Intent protocol.

Hands-Free Execution

Users benefit from single-step executions to arrive at sophisticated outcomes without micromanaging intermediate transaction executions.

Atomic Execution

ERC-4337 bundles Intent user operations and executes them atomically as a single transaction. Users confidently initiate complex on-chain outcomes in which either all steps or none are executed.

Uniform Token Pricing

Users may express Intents that involve multiple actions in cross-chain contexts. The decentralized algorithm sets uniform token pricing in the bundle, minimizing slippage and risk of MEV exploitation, among other benefits.

Optional gas

Native tokens are optional. BalloonDogs digests a small fee from the transacted tokens upon successful post-execution validation.

Decision Making comes with the Intent UX

DeFi interactions that support users’ outcomes proceed when they meet user-expressed conditions.

Programmable Accounts

Account abstraction enables account programmability, where users can define custom logic for their accounts, including spending limits, subscriptions, multi-signature requirements, and recovery mechanisms expressed as Intents.

Seamless Onboarding

Owning a standard ERC-4337 wallet is the sole optional requirement. BalloonDogs may onboard the user during the first intent execution.

Conditional execution

BalloonDogs explores unique use cases made possible by ERC-4337, such as automatically swapping tokens when certain price thresholds are met or depositing to a liquidity pool when specific criteria are satisfied.

Social Recovery and Guardianship

Account abstraction supports social recovery and guardianship mechanisms, where users can appoint trusted individuals or entities to help recover their accounts in case of loss or compromise. How about expressing that as an Intent?

By Bob: "Allow transactions up to $1,000. Any transaction over $1,000 requires approval from Alice.eth." If an attempt is made to transfer more than $1,000 out of the ERC-4337 account, the transaction will wait for Alice.eth signed the transaction with Bob's tax ID (it does not have to be an Intent). An on-2-off chain Oracle notification to Alice asks her to review and approve the transaction.

Decentralized Identity and Reputation

Account abstraction can be used to create decentralized identity and reputation systems. Users can associate their accounts with verified credentials, such as KYC information, credit scores, or social profiles, enabling a more trustworthy and secure environment for executing Intents.

For example, the decentralized algorithm considers a user's reputation score when prioritizing intent execution, or certain intents could require specific identity verifications to be fulfilled.
