We are excited to announce a tremendous partnership between Etherspot and Rootstock.

Through this collaboration, Etherspot brings cutting-edge Account Abstraction (AA) technology to Rootstock, which is merging the rapidly evolving capabilities of Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) chains with the security of the Bitcoin network.

Rootstock is Bitcoin’s first and longest-standing sidechain. It is secured by Bitcoin’s proof-of-work and enables DeFi on Bitcoin by allowing direct deployment of Ethereum smart contracts. Leveraging a forked version of the EVM, known as the Rootstock Virtual Machine (RVM), Rootstock enables compatibility with Ethereum Smart Contracts and associated deployment and interaction tools.

Etherspot, renowned for its game-changing ERC-4337 infrastructure, is extending its capabilities to developers building on Rootstock. Account Abstraction represents a revolutionary concept that has the potential to redefine the landscape of Web3. This innovative technology bridges the gap between Web2-like user experiences and the decentralized Web3 environment, offering unparalleled ease of use and accessibility.

Developers on Rootstock now have access to Etherspot’s comprehensive suite of Account Abstraction tools, including the Prime AA SDK, ERC-4337 Skandha Bundler, Arka Paymaster, and data APIs. These tools empower developers to ensure their dApps are ERC-4337 compliant while implementing numerous features such as Web2-like onboarding, seamless multichain experiences, fiat on-ramps, gasless transactions, recovery guardians, and more. Moreover, by deploying smart contracts on Rootstock EVM, developers can leverage the robust security of the Bitcoin network.
