Forwarding Contract overview


#1

We are nearing completion of v2 including the forwarding contract and would love to hear feedback from the community.

The Forwarding Contract’s goal is to enable the average user to buy assets with ETH. This removes the required knowledge of WETH and allowances. From our user testing, these two steps caused the most confusion and frustration.

For more detailed information of public API usage and gas costs see our overview document. If you would like to dive into the code it is available here. We will deploy a version to Kovan for testing soon.

Feel free to post any questions or feed back here, we would love to hear it.


#2

As a nice little bonus update, we have performed an integration test with Decentraland’s LAND ERC721 token. This allowed a user to buy LAND with ETH via the forwarding contract. Here is the Kovan transaction.
