Frontier, in short, can be called a chain- agnostic DeFi aggregator i.e. it brings the DeFi services together from different protocols to a single application allowing users to seamlessly interact with everything from one place.
Using Frontier users can just import their wallets like Metamask, Trustwallet, etc, and participate in activities like liquidity provision, best-asset swapping, staking, portfolio tracking, etc all this using a single application. Frontier allows any web-3 mobile wallet which supports EIP-681 to interact with all of Frontier’s native integrations.
You can currently monitor your activity on various DeFi apps like Compound, Maker, Aave, Synthetix, Uniswap, Curve, Balancer, etc. More protocols will be added to the Frontier as the DeFi ecosystem grows.
Here is a clear view of Chains, Protocols, Platforms, and Staking currently supported by the Frontier application.
$FRONT is the native token of the Frontier and has the following use-cases :
1. Staking on Frontier Chain
By staking $FRONT on the Frontier Chain you can earn rewards as well as you will be securing the network. The Frontier Chain is basically a decentralized key management chain. So, as the number of people staking $FRONT increases parallelly the security of the network increases.
2. Gasless Transactions
When you lock your $FRONT tokens inside the Frontier vault you will get access to make near-free transactions.
3. Frontier Incentivization Protocol
In this protocol, you can earn $FRONT rewards based on the amount of activity that you are doing in the Frontier application.
$gFRONT will be used as a governance token for the Frontier ecosystem using which users can vote on the Frontier chain regarding any proposal that the team launches. This helps in taking any important decisions regarding Frontier in a decentralized way.
5. Liquidity Provision
Frontier will use $FRONT to bootstrap liquidity for various decentralized protocols and platforms. Users will be earning some yield or in simple words interest by supplying $FRONT tokens to pools.
