The Gelato bundler & paymaster take a new approach to ERC-4337 and offer various advantages whilst remaining fully compatible with other implementations.
- Transaction fees are settled post-execution so users are charged exact amounts and not overcharged like is common with other bundlers (e.g.,
- Cheaper transactions due to not incurring on-chain paymaster and fee transfer overhead.
- Instant inclusion as there is no need to wait for other
UserOperationsto form a bundle.
- Smart Accounts have unlimited freedom during validation & execution - no blacklisted opcodes or restrictive gas limits. This enables more elaborate signature verification and authentication logic.

EntryPointdeposit or on-chain paymaster is required. Instead, 1Balance settles transaction fees post-execution across all supported networks.
This avoids per-chain user deposits and ensures that the exact amount of gas consumed is charged with 100% accuracy. This is possible by setting
maxFeePerGas=0so that the
EntryPointdoesn't require any fee payment (
