Core Protocol based on Account Abstraction & ERC 4337 to revolutionise Investing & Fund Management.

Idea emerged to becoming a “Vision” when BLOK Capital Founder Sheetal Nehra discussed with few novice investors in crypto about the difficulty of self custody in storing private keys / seed phrases, gas fees & their concerns of losing their crypto with centralised exchanges, like FTX. Our Founder decided to create a protocol solving the complexity of Investment and Wealth Management and it gave birth to “BLOK Capital Protocol” building a Web3 protocol and community for decentralised Wealth Management.

With time, all Core DAO members joined BLOK Capital having great experience and expertise in their respective fields enabling us to build BLOK Capital, the DAO.

Welcome to BLOK Capital: Core Protocol Based on Account Abstraction & ERC-4337 to Revolutionise Investing & Fund Management.

Let’s go deep dive with Account Abstraction and ERC 4337.

What is Account Abstraction?

Account abstraction is a new way of interacting with the Ethereum blockchain. It allows users to use smart contracts as their primary accounts, instead of the traditional externally owned accounts (EOAs). This has a number of benefits, including:

  • Improved security: Smart contracts can be programmed with more sophisticated security features than EOAs.
  • Greater flexibility: Smart contracts can be programmed to implement a wide range of features, such as multi-signature wallets, social recovery, and transaction approvals.
  • Reduced costs: Smart contracts can be used to optimize gas fees via bundlers & paymasters.

What is ERC-4337?

ERC-4337 is a new Ethereum standard that enables account abstraction. It provides a set of rules for how smart contracts can be used as accounts. This makes it easier for developers to build wallets and other applications that use account abstraction.

How BLOK Capital is Using Account Abstraction and ERC-4337?

BLOK Capital is using account abstraction and ERC-4337 to create a new platform that will make it easier and more secure for investors to connect with wealth managers in complete decentralised manner where investors fund will be only allowed to swap by wealth managers. Wealth managers can not withdraw or swap the assets of investors to the tokens which is not whitelisted by BLOK Capital DAO & Community.

The platform will provide a number of features, including:

  • Investor onboarding: Investors will be able to onboard to the platform quickly and easily using Web3Auth at the moment. AA is created using Zerodev infrastructure at the moment
  • Wealth manager discovery: Investors will be able to discover and connect with wealth managers based on their needs and preferences.
  • Asset management: Investors will be able to give wealth managers permission to manage their assets on their behalf.

Why & How BLOK Capital is going to revolutionise Investing & Fund Management?

You can learn about ERC 4337 here. There is an implementation in progress here. An early developer alpha version is expected to be coming soon, after which point the next step will be to nail down final details and conduct audits to confirm the scheme’s safety.
