What is Intent-centric?

In simpler terms, being result-oriented and disregarding the process. You only focus on stating the desired outcome, not caring about the process, leaving it to the protocol to handle—a somewhat boss-like approach where you only inquire about the results and not the process. For example, suppose you have 500 USDT on ETH and 500 USDT on Polygon, and you want the result of buying 1,000 USDT worth of BTC on the BNB chain. The typical approach would involve learning how to cross-chain the 1,000 USDT from ETH and Polygon to BNB and then proceed with the transaction. Moreover, it requires having the corresponding ETH/Matic/BNB on all three chains as gas.

Even a seemingly simple task like buying cryptocurrency is enough to discourage many newcomers. However, with an Intent-centric protocol, you only need to issue the command that you want to buy 1,000 USDT worth of BTC on BNB. The protocol will handle a series of operations for you, and after a short wait, BTC will appear in your wallet.

You may not even need any gas tokens.
