Products & Services

We propose Smart Deploy, a platform to simplify the process of deploying and managing smart contracts on Soroban. Currently, Soroban lacks a standardized way of publishing, verifying, and upgrading contracts, including tracking and managing contract metadata. Smart Deploy solves these issues by creating a DAO for publishing contracts and offers a standardized interface for deploying, invoking, and upgrading them.

Developers can publish contracts with Smart Deploy platform allowing its metadata to be tracked such as version and where to find the source code, e.g. Github repo. After publication, contracts can be deployed and claim a unique ID, which makes them easily accessible and human-readable. The platform also provides a standardized interface for invoking deployed contracts, making it easy to integrate them with other applications and services. Finally, Smart Deploy uses semantic versioning making it safe and easy to upgrade to the latest version using the DAO contract, ensuring that each decision is made as a team.

Overall, Smart Deploy is a much-needed solution for developers for publishing, deploying, and managing smart contracts on Soroban. By providing a user-friendly interface, our platform will streamline and standardized the entire contract deployment process. This will allow developers to focus on building great applications instead of worrying about technical details and reinventing the wheel.

First Deliverable

Our first deliverable includes report assessing the current state of developing on Soroban and our proposed solution to the following questions:

1) How to publish contract metadata including how to retrieve the source code?

2) How to claim a unique name and deploy a contract?

3) How to invoke a contract with a unique name?

4) Currently there isn't a way to redeploy a contract, but a proxy pattern is suggested. However, no examples exist and we would outline how the proxy pattern could be used and if not possible propose a solution.

Based on initial feedback from the SCF team, we will also be rolling out a first version of the Smart Deploy contract on Futurenet which focuses on the function of deploying an already uploaded contract.

Reviewer instructions

In order to judge the quality of our Proof of Intent, the reviewer will be able to look at two things:

1) The report answering the questions mentioned above. This is available here:

2) The first version of the Smart Deploy open source contract which demonstrates the functionality of deploying a smart contract from the hash of a contract previously uploaded. This is available here:
