Gasless Transactions

Attract a broader audience by removing the need to have gas to use your application. Engine offers multiple options for developers looking to sponsor gas for their users' transactions.

Use cases

  • Build an NFT checkout where the buyer is sent an NFT upon fiat payment.
  • Enable users to transfer an NFT to a friend or list an NFT on a marketplace.
  • Minimize friction by seamlessly managing transactions for players in a web3 game.


Here are several ways to offer gasless transactions to your users.

Send transactions with backend wallets

If a contract method can be called on behalf of a user, the simplest approach is to send the transaction from a backend wallet.


  • An NFT contract that can be claimed by a wallet and sent to another wallet.
  • An oracle where state can be updated by any wallet.

Send meta-transactions with relayers

If your contract supports meta-transactions, use Engine as a relayer to send meta-transactions that are signed by your users' wallets.

Send transactions with smart accounts

If your users have smart accounts, use Engine backend wallets to transact on behalf of smart accounts.
