Rebranding Proposal: Frontier to Self ChainOverview and Background:Recognizing the persistent challenges linked to traditional EOA wallets, such as complex key management, the risk of losing vital seed phrases or private keys resulting in asset losses, and an unwelcoming user experience, we set out on a journey to create Self Chain. This infrastructure, tailored for MPC (Multi-Party Computation) and keyless wallets, seeks to simplify crypto management, heighten security, and offer a seamless user experience, ultimately making blockchain accessible to all. Through our innovative approach, we address these crucial pain points, aiming to democratize access to the world of decentralized finance and blockchain technology.Frontier, The Unified Non-Custodial Wallet, and Hot Cross, an extensive multi-chain and cross-chain tool suite, are joining forces on a transformative journey to tackle the complexities of crypto wallet management and build a more inclusive blockchain ecosystem. The official acquisition of Hot Cross by Frontier on June 26th, 2023, marked a pivotal moment where their visions and resources aligned perfectly. This merger brings together the strengths and experiences of both Frontier and Hot Cross into one unified team.This merger isn't just about business; it's about a shared commitment to overcoming the hurdles that have held back the wider adoption of blockchain technology. With a united vision, Frontier and Hot Cross are set to revolutionize the crypto landscape. Our goal is to simplify crypto wallet management and make blockchain accessible to everyone. Together, we're crafting a more user-friendly and efficient blockchain ecosystem, ensuring that blockchain benefits reach people from all walks of life.Starting as early as Q4 2022, the team has already started developing Self Chain's blockchain modules, explorer, staking app, and migration module. By Q4 2023, we rolled out our mission at community building and educational content. Looking ahead, we're excited to introduce Self Chain tokenomics, the Self Chain mainnet, and innovative products like MPC wallets, the Intents SDK, and AA plugins, paving the way for an exciting future for Self Chain. Learn more about Self Chain's Roadmap.

New Ecosystem Mechanics:Self Chain expands the utility of SLF tokens, with SLF, you can do a lot:1. Gas Fees: SLF tokens are used to pay for transaction fees on the Self Chain blockchain. This ensures that the network remains efficient and accessible.2. DPoS Validator Staking: SLF holders can actively participate in securing the network by delegating their holdings to validators or running their own validator nodes.3. Governance: SLF holders have the opportunity to engage in future governance decisions.4. Native Collateral: SLF tokens can be utilized as native asset liquidity or collateral within applications built on the Self Chain.5. Fee Markets: Users can incentivize validators with SLF tokens to prioritize their transactions, creating a dynamic and efficient fee market.6. Trading Fees: SLF tokens can also be used as trading fees on exchanges built within the Self Chain ecosystem.Switching from FRONT to SLF opens up more opportunities and puts you at the forefront of a growing Layer 1 blockchain community.
Token Swap and Brand Support:To streamline this transition, we are initiating a token migration from FRONT to the new SLF token. Our brand partners, which include prominent VCs and exchanges, are fully behind this move, further enhancing our control and ecosystem integration. Check out SLF Tokenomics.
Next Steps:Token holders have spoken: The FRONT rebranding proposal , now concluded on Self Chain DAO, has achieved a resounding consensus. The transition from $FRONT to $SLF is confirmed, receiving a unanimous 100% vote in favor. Stay tuned for comprehensive details on the token migration process, join the conversation in our Discord for community engagement and subscribe to our Telegram Announcement channel for the latest updates.HOTCROSS allocation and migration will be proposed at a later date.In essence, Self Chain embarks on an ambitious journey to create a user-friendly blockchain ecosystem, transforming the role and functionality of $SLF for the broader crypto community.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the intentions of Self Chain’s new proposal?

Shifting from a traditional wallet solution (EOAs wallet) to building Self Chain as a pioneering force, offering a Modular Intent-Centric Access Layer1 blockchain and a keyless wallet infrastructure service. Powered by MPC-TSS/AA technology, Self Chain seeks to revolutionize multi-chain Web3 access and simplify the user experience.

How does the proposal benefit the community?

The token holders will be able to use the new token for: - Gas transactions. - Receiving validator rewards. - Participating in votes. - Acquiring staking rewards. - Serving as a core component of the new ecosystem. - Liquidity Asset, trading of assets with the new token.

What utility will the $SLF token have?

The $SLF token will become the native token of Self Chain. Server four purposes on the new L1 blockchain: - As a spam prevention mechanism, $SLF is used to pay fees. The fee may be proportional to the amount of computation the transaction requires. - As staking tokens, $SLF can be “bonded” to receive block rewards. The economic security of the Chain is a function of the amount of $SLF staked. The more $SLF that are collateralized, the more “skin” there is at stake and the higher the cost of attacking the network. Thus, the more $SLF there are bonded, the greater the economic security of the network. - $SLF holders may govern the Self Chain upgrades by voting on proposals with their staked $SLF.

Will there be a supply increase?

There will be new tokens issued because an L1 blockchain is much wider. The new supply will be for the validator rewards. The change will support the long-term sustainability and growth of the ecosystem and the much broader mission. Details about $SLF Tokenomics will be released in Q1, 2024.

How long is the migration period open?

The migration period will last 12 months starting from the date the migration commenced, the 15th of January, 2024. After this period, conversion won’t be possible anymore.

What if I keep my $FRONT on centralized exchanges?

No action is required from holders on centralized exchanges, however, as more information becomes available we will share details through our social channels. The transition to $SLF will be executed seamlessly by the exchange’s support.

What is snapshot number in a DAO proposal?

A snapshot is a record of the state of the blockchain at a particular block height. It means that you can for example track the holdings of a specific wallet back to a specific point in time. Snapshot, the voting platform, uses snapshots to validate if voters met the voting criteria at the moment of proposal creation. If a voter acquired required tokens after the proposal had been created, these newly acquired tokens would not be used for the calculation of their voting power. Therefore, if FRONT tokens are acquired after the rebranding proposal is created at Ethereum block 18989773, you will not have the voting power to vote on this proposal.
