Gasless NFT Experiences & Barrier-Free Mints: Powered by Gelato

With the growing acceptance of decentralized technologies, web3 is gaining significant traction as the next-gen internet that runs on blockchain and decentralized apps (dApps), yet, despite its immense potential, it is still plagued by challenges, particularly the exorbitant gas fees linked to blockchain transactions.

Gelato and Omni X are working to change this.

A Seamless Web3 Experience

Gelato is enhancing the decentralized landscape's user experience by subsidizing gas fees via their keeper network, where traditionally users had to bear these costs for a variety of blockchain transactions such as NFT minting, sending, transferring, or purchasing, which could be expensive and unpredictable, leading to friction while interacting with dApps.

By leveraging Gelato's technology, dApps can offer a more user-friendly experience by covering transaction costs for their users, which could even eliminate the need for users to sign transactions in their wallets.

Breaking Barriers

Gelato's gasless solution has the potential to revolutionize the NFT space by eliminating the high gas fees associated with minting and trading NFTs, which often discourage new users from entering the market, and by offering gasless NFT mints, it lowers the barriers to entry, making it more accessible and inclusive, akin to popular web2 content platforms such as Instagram and Twitter.

Case Study: Omni Elements

The launch of Omni Elements, the first NFT collection incubated and released by Omni X, is a prime illustration of the game-changing possibilities of Gelato's gasless mint technology, exemplifying the ease and convenience of claiming and minting NFTs.

On the first day of Omni Elements' release, whitelisted users enjoyed a hassle-free process for claiming their NFTs by connecting to the Arbitrum network and clicking on "claim," which prompted Gelato’s relayers to handle the minting transaction, delivering the Omni Elements to the user's wallet after a brief computation time.

Likewise, to mint an Omni Element, users were only required to authorize the use of USDC, a stablecoin tied to the US dollar, after which the Omni Elements contract would execute the same process and mint NFTs to the user’s account without charging them the gas fee.

Challenging Expectations

Omni Elements' gasless minting, powered by Gelato, demonstrates what a frictionless blockchain-powered future could look like.

The Omni Elements case study underscores the importance of a more user-friendly web3 experience. As more projects and platforms adopt Gelato's gasless solutions, the barriers to entry for new users will continue to decrease, driving greater adoption of Web3 technologies and accelerating the growth of the decentralized economy.

Omni Elements' successful implementation of Gelato's gasless mint technology represents a compelling example of the potential for a more accessible and seamless web3 experience, challenging current expectations and paving the way for the widespread adoption of web3 technologies and a decentralized future.


Gelato's novel method of subsidizing gas fees not only solves a significant challenge for users in the Web3 domain but also has the potential to transform the NFT market by offering a more inclusive and intuitive experience, bridging the gap between web2 and web3.

This positions both Gelato and Omni X as essential players in promoting the widespread adoption of blockchain technology and driving the growth of the decentralized digital economy.
