For Project Guardian’s first industrial pilot in November 2022, J.P. Morgan, SBI Holdings, and DBS successfully implemented several pilots. Foreign exchange and government bonds were traded against tokenized Singapore Government Securities Bonds, Japanese Government Bonds, Japanese Yen (JPY), and Singapore Dollar (SGD) liquidity pools in the pilots.
By using Biconomy’s on-chain and off-chain ERC-4337 infrastructure, Onyx by J.P. Morgan has advanced the work. This infrastructure introduces a Web3 Account Abstraction standard. The approach showed Fund Managers to execute transactions on a permissioned Avalanche subnet without paying gas expenses. Account Abstraction lets Fund Managers use programmable Smart Accounts to easily start bespoke transactions.

Biconomy’s dynamic ‘Paymaster’ system covered all transaction gas fees. Sponsorship Paymaster helped the Fund Manager create a smart contract wallet with Biconomy. Smart contracts made adding Funds easy. It also made mint and burn transactions easier for subscribing and redeeming funds, eliminating the need for gas tokens to cover transaction fees.
Tyrone Lobban, Head of Onyx Digital Assets, stressed the need for new financial services infrastructure to increase utility and asset management efficiency. The proof-of-concept showed that Fund Managers can use account abstraction concepts to manage tokenized money easily and efficiently.
Biconomy COO and co-founder Aniket Jindal expressed his enthusiasm for major and practical financial institution applications. Secure and decentralized blockchain technology is used to integrate reputable institutions and web2 enterprises. It enables web3’s full capabilities for the next billion consumers.
