Add a “Gas on arrival” feature to Celer cBridge.
Multi-chain season has kicked into full gear, and cBridge activity is now growing exponentially. However, one of the key frustrations for users is when they send funds to a destination chain, but have no gas on arrival to do anything with.
As a community member, I’ve been helping users out by lending them gas on destination chains in the
#request-gaschannel on the Discord server. Majority of the cases are users lacking ETH to use on Arbitrum to unwrap their WETH, which I’m sure the team is working on.
However, there are also many cases of users lacking AVAX on arrival to Avalanche, MATIC on Polygon, and so on. In the past week, Binance occasionally paused withdrawals of MATIC and FTM to their respective chains, which meant many users had no way of getting gas to those chains other than through faucets, asking friends, or through making expensive transactions on Ethereum.
This proposal supercedes my previous proposal which requests support to transfer ETH.
I believe this implementation would be much more powerful, allowing users to travel to any destination chain without gas. Feasibility-wise, I understand it would involve needing a small amount of gas liquidity on each destination chain – e.g. AVAX on Avalanche, ETH on Arbitrum, etc.
An additional fee would be charged whenever a user requests gas.
- Yes, make this feature available
- No, don’t make this feature available
- Perhaps, but prioritise other things for now (please comment)
