Holdstation Weekly Recap

Weekly stats

Holdstation's Paymaster stats are getting real impressive, particularly in transactions paid in alternative tokens and fees covered by Paymaster.

As of Feb 13, Holdstation has sponsored 17.32 ETH (~$70K) in gas fees and facilitated over 57,000 AA transactions.

Not just that, Holdstation users up to now have used 35,500 $HOLD (~$120,000) to cover gas fees via Holdstation Paymaster.


With zkSync's focus on Paymaster and our promising stats, this is an opportune moment to enhance our presence in the ecosystem. The Paymaster feature removes gas fee barriers for users and acts as a promotional and connecting tool within the ecosystem. Our Product Manager, during an AMA with zkSync, aptly described Paymaster as "a perfect feature to accelerate mass adoption."
