Forward’s mission to deliver a no-code dApp builder that utilizes a drag-and-drop interface in its user-friendly front-end to allow blockchain users to create and deploy customizable applications, even without technical knowledge, took a significant leap through a strategic chain integration arrangement with Linea.

The Forward-Linea chain integration arrangement opens a direct channel to access the Ethereum scaling solutions that the Layer 2 network of the Linea ecosystem offers. It allows blockchain users at all levels of technicality to create, customize, and deploy smart contracts and dApp templates from the Forward Marketplace on Forward Factory.

Our chain integration partnership with Linea aims to create and support opportunities for smart contract developers to build, test, and launch dApps with speed and efficiency without the traditional problems that have previously limited their creativity and innovation.

We also aim to support non-technical users to explore the full potential of Ethereum’s capabilities to test and deploy customizable smart contracts and dApp templates on Linea’s fast and affordable L2 network.

Visit to sign up and deploy your smart contract templates on the Linea Network in less than 5 minutes.

To quote Mitch Rankin, Forward Co-Founder:

“Many people already recognize the potential of decentralized technology, especially the developing Web3 space. Unfortunately, very few meet the criteria to participate in this high-potential space. Forward and Linea share a common goal to lower and even remove the participation barrier, which we aim to achieve through this partnership. Working together, we will continue supporting straightforward paths and rewarding participants within the Web3 space.”

“At Linea, we believe there’s more than one way to do it right. Sometimes, two right paths can merge to create a wider path for the next billion users to join the Web3 space. This chain integration partnership with Forward displays our readiness to explore innovative ideas with forward-thinking partners to achieve our ultimate goals together.” added Declan Fox, Senior Product Manager, Linea.
