Eidoo Card first to integrate Layer 2 solution for fast and free crypto transactions

the first integration of a Layer 2 solution by Loopring

The Eidoo wallet enables users across Europe and the UK to easily convert their cryptocurrency
into Euros or Pounds in real-time. After which, these fiat funds are automatically loaded onto the
Eidoo Card to instantly start spending in stores, online, or even withdraw cash from ATMs.

Eidoo Card is connected to the Ethereum network, a popular blockchain which hosts the
majority of decentralized finance (DeFi) applications today. Due to its exponential growth
Ethereum faces scalability issues and has been experiencing uncharacteristically high
transaction (gas) fees due to this network congestion. A large pool of unprocessed transactions
have slowed down the whole network, which is a challenge for DeFi projects like Eidoo Card
that require frequent and smaller kinds of transactions.

To overcome this network congestion, the Eidoo Card is integrating an API by Loopring, a
next-generation high-performance decentralized exchange and payment protocol focused on
scalability.

“It’s fascinating to see Eidoo Card integrated Loopring zkRollup. To those saying about "gas
fees are too high", my answer to that is "More people should be accepting payments directly
through zkRollup". Seriously, scaling to 3000+ TPS for simple-payments applications is here, we
just need to...use it.” Jay Zhou, COO of Loopring Protocol

Loopring’s uniquely designed zkRollup technology can process three thousand cryptocurrency
transactions per second. The transactions are made completely “off-chain” but benefit from high
levels of cryptographic security thanks to this Layer 2 solution.

To ensure the Eidoo Card experience remains comparable to traditional debit cards and crypto
debit cards, the majority of cardholders’ crypto conversion transactions will be processed
through Loopring. Because they are not immediately included on the Ethereum mainnet , this
will make these transactions almost instant and a fraction of the cost of Ethereum’s mainnet
network fees.

The Eidoo Card is designed to give the same speed and costs associated with traditional crypto
cards, while staying truly DeFi - transparent, more secure and non-custodial.

Pre-orders for the Eidoo Card launched in March 2020, with more than 3.4 million PNT already
staked by users. To date, over 3,000 cards have been ordered.
