Sablier, the Ethereum-based (ETH/USD) protocol for real-time finance, is launching its infrastructure on Polygon (MATIC/USD) and Binance (BNB/USD) Smart Chain to offer lower usage fees and upgraded efficiency, Invezz learned from a press release. Users can now leverage Sablier to streamline payments, payroll, and subscriptions.

Launch on BSC to cut gas fees by 12,000%, on MATIC – by 677%

Sablier’s deployment on Polygon will cut fees by almost 677% compared to Ethereum gas fees. The launch on Binance Smart Chain will lower them by over 12,000%. So far, the main use of Sablier has been in the form token-vesting for teams because Ethereum gas fees don’t have much additional uses.

Sablier expects the ability to stream tokens with lower fees on BSC and Polygon will open the doors for more people to experiment with the protocol and increase the number of new use cases. Paul Razvan Berg, Founder of Sablier, commented:

We are delighted to announce the release of the Sablier protocol on Polygon and Binance Smart Chain (BSC), significantly lowering the barrier to entry for new users and bringing us a step closer to a hyper-liquid economy powered by Sablier. Polygon and BSC have each been one of the fastest-growing blockchains in the past few months with the support of projects like Aave, Curve or Sushiswap and investors like Mark Cuban for Polygon, and the genesis of a completely new ecosystem for Binance Smart Chain.

James Simpson, Founder of mStable, added:

mStable was a very early adopter of Sablier and have trusted the protocol to stream investor, team tokens allocation and even DAO salaries. Sablier on BSC and Polygon will enable users to access their great product without the friction of high transaction costs.

Willy Ogorzaly, Head of Decentralization at ShapeShift, said:

I love streaming FOX on mainnet, but I don’t love thinking about how much ETH has been spent to do so. Sablier’s expansion to new chains provides a much cheaper option that will open the door to smaller FOX streams which were previously cost prohibitive.

Users can utilize the Polygon Bridge to move assets over to Polygon and the Binance Bridge to transfer funds to the BSC network.
