- Performance optimization, smoother access to applications and web pages
ETH Gas Stations: Transactions without ETH
Have you ever had ERC20 stuck in your wallet? Need to first deposit ETH into a new address before being able to transact?
We have good news: Those days are over, thanks to our new ETH Gas Station!
How does it work?
Having updated to the latest version imToken, a user that has insufficient ETH to pay for the transaction fee can use USDT (and soon more tokens) to quickly recharge ETH to solve the urgent problem.
The app will prompt you to get 5, 10 or 20 USDT worth of ETH with the conversion rate taken from Tokenlon DEX. A small fee applies.
More secure and autonomous authorization management.
The second big solution we present in this update concerns DApp approvals, a long known issue we discussed in our last blog post here.
If you ever used a DApp, you may have discovered that they routinely ask for authorization of unlimited amounts of ERC20 tokens (approve).
Setting unlimited approvals leaves you at the risk of the DApp (or a hacker) stealing a bigger amount of your tokens.
In imToken 2.5.5, we introduce the following optimizations:
- Adding an advanced preview of token authorization
- Adding the ability to edit the allowance
- Adding an "Token Allowance Checker" DApp to manage DApp, you can change the authorization status at any time
Smoother access to applications and web pages
This update is also adding a performance optimization for imToken’s DApp browser.
We tried it ourselves. And believe us, you will definitly notice! 😄
