What is Gelato?
Web3's Automation Protocol

What is Gelato Network?

Gelato Network is a decentralized network of bots used by web3 developers to automate smart contract executions on all major public EVM compatible blockchains including Ethereum, Polygon, Fantom, Arbitrum, BNB Chain, Optimism and many more.
Using Gelato, developers can outsource their web3 DevOps needs around automating and relaying transactions in order to focus exclusively on building their core product.
Why do I need a decentralized network of bots to automate smart contracts?
Before Gelato, developers would have to build custom bots (also referred to as keepers) related to each specific smart contract process they wanted to automate. Building, running, and maintaining the use case specific bots to service these systems require a substantial amount of time & usually leads to the development team becoming the central point of failure within their system. If their bot goes down, the whole application halts.

Vision

The vision of Gelato is to solve the issues of lacking reliability, sophistication, and centralization around dapps that want to offer automatic smart contract executions & gasless transactions within and across multiple blockchain networks in the web3 ecosystem. It was created to replace legacy centralized keeper systems with an easy-to-use interface and reliable infrastructure to power the next generation of DeFi, NFT and gaming applications in web3.
