Today marks a very special day for many DeFi founders, builders, and power users.

Today is the launch of the transferable $SAFE token, for the safe multisig users on Ethereum mainnet. The tokens had to be claimed many months, if not years, ago. Safe has been pioneering the idea of smart accounts and has made many advancements in account abstraction technology. Our discussion with co-founder, Richard Meissner, aims to provide clarity on how these developments could influence the Ethereum ecosystem going forward.

Account abstraction is a crucial innovation that introduces greater flexibility in how accounts are defined and managed on the Ethereum blockchain. With initiatives like ERC-4337 and EIP-3074, Safe is exploring different approaches to the current UX situation.

We discussed how these technical enhancements such as session keys, automatic transfers, and adjustable transaction limits, aim to make blockchain use more user-friendly and secure. The overarching goal is to achieve native account abstraction at the protocol level, which could significantly improve how users interface with dApps.

However, we went into detail about a sticky situation revoling the diverging paths of ERC-3074, which emphasizes empowering externally owned accounts, and ERC-4337, which focuses on smart accounts, and illustrated the pro’s and con’s of each approach.

Central to these efforts is the $SAFE token, which has become transferable today and plays a vital role in governance and incentivization within the Safe ecosystem.

As we delve into these topics, we aim to equip you with a thorough understanding of how Safe’s latest updates not only affect their platform but also have the potential to impact broader crypto UX. Whether you are deeply involved in building DeFi applications or an everyday user like us, these developments from Safe are crucial for anyone interested in where we go from here.
