ZUG, Swiss, November 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The NEAR Foundation today announced that Coin98––a multi-chain wallet and defi platform with over 7 million users across 170 countries––has launched a decentralized app store powered by the NEAR Blockchain Operating System (BOS ). Coin98’s innovative marketplace offers an intuitive app store interface to streamline access to a range of applications across major Ethereum Layer-2 ecosystems, significantly increasing accessibility and discoverability for users.
Focused on a unique DeFi experience for the everyday Web3 user, the Coin98 Super Wallet offers both a web app and a mobile app supporting over 70 chains and 15,000 dapps. With the BOS Gateway added to Coin98 Super Wallet, users interested in exploring new L2 or DeFi ecosystems can find applications, cross-chain bridges, money markets, and decentralized exchanges in a single interface – and through the power of BOS , the frontend code is 100% decentralized and stored on-chain, on NEAR.
Coin98’s decentralized app store will offer support for a variety of leading Layer 2 solutions, including Polygon zkEVM, zkSync, Base, and Linea. These solutions will be easily accessible through the Coin98 website and the Coin98 Super Wallet mobile app. The interface is designed to be easy to use: users only need to log in once with their Coin98 Super Wallet to access a range of widgets dedicated to each ecosystem. Clicking on these widgets will reveal a curated selection of each ecosystem’s top DeFi bridges and protocols, streamlining the previously fragmented onboarding journey into a single flow.
Using NEAR’s innovative, chain-agnostic BOS technology stack for decentralized interfaces, Coin98 is able to offer users a truly decentralized app store. All dapps featured on the Coin98 gateway are frontend components whose code is stored on-chain on NEAR, which interact directly with smart contracts on the original chains. Through the BOS, Coin98 can offer users an app store that is both easy to use and fully decentralized.
The addition of Coin98’s decentralized dapp store to its Super Wallet is a strategic move aimed at improving user acquisition and engagement in a market saturated with wallets. By offering the most efficient and easiest way to interact with the best Layer 2 solutions, Coin98 is positioning itself as a leader in the blockchain space.
Thanh Lêfounder of Coin98, said: “At Coin98, we are committed to providing our users with the best unique challenge experience in our pursuit of the vision of making Web3 accessible to everyone. With NEAR’s BOS, we can create a user-friendly environment. interface thanks to its composability, while allowing decentralization under the hood. Our dapp store offers hassle-free interaction with the most exciting L2s on the market. Soon, we will expand our collection to offer even more ecosystems and dapps, as BOS significantly reduces the development process, enabling a fast and scalable way to integrate new applications.
Using the BOS as a front-end layer makes the development process not only simple, but scalable over time, thanks to a catalog of frontend components that developers can easily choose from – which, unlike native channel integrations, makes it significantly easier the integration of new ecosystems. At scale.
The Coin98 decentralized app store demonstrates the power of BOS to improve the Web3 user experience, effectively solving the persistent challenges of complex integration and fragmented user experience in the Web3 space. BOS takes center stage as a solution that streamlines the onboarding process, providing a user-friendly and efficient gateway for new and experienced users.
Illia Polosukhin, co-founder of NEAR Protocol, said: “The NEAR ecosystem is excited to see Coin98 building its decentralized app store on the BOS and providing much better experiences for its users. This is exactly why we decided to create BOS: because NEAR’s technology can help founders achieve decentralization and discoverability in parallel. Now Coin98 users can explore multiple L2 ecosystems in a single app, through the wallet of their choice, in seconds, without complexity or switching fees. NEAR’s mission is to drive mainstream adoption. of the open web through excellent user experiences and we hope that more founders and projects will join us to develop the BOS »
Coin98’s decentralized app store offering follows major BOS gateway launches by Polygon zkEVM and Mantle, two leading L2 ecosystems. The success of these wallet gateway partners highlights the benefits BOS is helping Web3 founders deliver to end users, demonstrating NEAR’s commitment to delivering products that simplify the blockchain experience and expand access to the web open on a global scale.
