Snowflake is currently in a beta phase
The Snowflake smart contract is a compliant
Provider under ERC 1484.
Under traditional smart contract infrastructure, dApps interact with users recognized by an Ethereum address. This creates complex user experiences in which a user must create a wallet, generally acquire Ethereum in their wallet and often additional tokens unique to the dApp experience. Snowflake operates as a base class that creates an underlying ecosystem of dApps that enable developers out-of-the-box to:
Leverage a broad range of digital identity standards through ERC 1484.
Allow users to access their dApps from an
Identity associated with multiple addresses, and accordingly multiple devices without insecurely transferring private keys from one device to another.
Charge users directly in the HYDRO token for services provided by the dApp.
Charge users indirectly through a smart contract for services provided by the dApp.
-- This transfer can occur through a DEX, enabling dApps to maintain complex token ecosystems and receive payments in any token without their end-users needing to manage multiple tokens in their wallets.
-- This transfer can occur through arbitrarily sophisticated smart contracts with sophisticated payment structures such as interest rates, late fees, subscription fees, escrows, and other functions important to dApp development.
Pay gas costs for user transactions occurring within their dApps through meta-transactions, removing the requirement for their end users to pay gas costs. This significantly simplifies the user onboarding flow, removing the requirement for dApp end-users to hold Eth in their wallets.
