The Forward project is thrilled to announce our integration arrangement with Boba Network to deliver the framework to support scalable, secure, and flexible DeFi environments using user-friendly smart contract templates.

Forward makes a giant stride in its mission to deliver the framework to promote and reward participation within decentralized systems through Forward Factory with our collaboration with Boba Network. Our latest chain integration arrangement with Boba Network will make our customizable and non-technical smart contract solutions accessible and deployable on Boba Network’s L2 blockchain. We are also excited to explore future collaborations with our partner to develop new templates for the Forward Marketplace.

Our integration partnership with Boba Network aims to provide an environment where blockchain users can access and deploy interactive smart contracts and improve the current infrastructure to present more user-friendly and intuitive solutions for our communities. Users can deploy dApps and smart contracts from Forward Factory on the Boba Network and look forward to more exciting times through this collaboration.

What is Boba Network? 🔍

Boba Network is a blockchain Layer-2 scaling solution and Hybrid Compute platform that offers fast and affordable transactions to users. Its Hybrid Compute technology uses smart contracts to communicate with Web2 APIs to execute complex algorithms such as machine learning classifiers, pull in real-world or enterprise data in a single atomic transaction, or sync with the latest state of a gaming engine.

Boba Network leverages off-chain computation and real-world data to provide industry-leading and interactive experiences for developers and creators within its ecosystem. It focuses on three core areas -

  • Reducing gas fees
  • Improving transaction throughput
  • Extending smart contract capabilities

Boba runs on the Ethereum, BNB, and Avax blockchain and explores the role of L2s in optimizing the building blocks. It is built on the Optimism Rollup developed by Optimism. The project runs on Optimism because it is a modified version of Ethereum, which ensures EVM and Solidity compatibility and facilitates seamless smart contracts migration from L1 to L2.

Partnership Details 🤝

Forward does not compete with anybody; we collaborate to make blockchain adoption seamless and straightforward. We look forward to providing the infrastructure to facilitate the next wave of one billion blockchain users through intuitive dApps and smart contracts available on Forward Factory and deployable on the Boba Network.

We are excited to move forward together and continue to build the future through our dApp templates and smart contracts in the Forward Marketplace.

Mitch Rankin, Forward Co-Founder, said:

“The blockchain is a better place when projects moving in the same direction help each other achieve their goals. So, collaborating with Boba Network is a no-brainer for our projects, communities, and the blockchain ecosystem. Now, we have to continue on the same path that has brought us this far so fast. The future is Forward, and we are thrilled Boba Network is along for the epic ride!”

“The partnership with Forward Protocol will deliver customizable and non-technical smart contract solutions accessible and deployable on the Boba Network, further enriching the experience for those building on Boba Network and the rest of the ecosystem,” said Curtis Schlaufman, Enya Labs Global Head of Marketing, a contributor to the Boba Network.

Through this partnership, users can deploy dApps and smart contracts from Forward Factory on Boba Network and enjoy all the generous perks available on its blockchain. Together, we aim to provide the framework to protect every participant within the DeFi space.
