Operate your project using a DAO

Build a decentralized autonomous organization for your community where people can submit and then vote on proposals.

Since your ZK Rollup is EVM-compatible, dApps should be written in Solidity. If you are new to this programming language, please learn more about it here.

Write a DAO smart contract

Extending the OpenZeppelin Governor contract, we create a governance contract that let the community makes decisions for the protocol.

Clone the smart contract examples

We've prepared a few different examples for you to get started.

git clone https://github.com/trustlesscomputer/smart-contract-examples.git

Compile the contracts

To compile your contracts, use the built-in hardhat compile task.

cd smart-contract-examples
npm install
npx hardhat compile

Deploy the contracts

Review config file hardhat.config.ts. The network configs should look like this.

  networks: {
    mynw: {
      url: "<your ZK rollup RPC url>",
      accounts: {
        mnemonic: "<your mnemonic with funds>"
      },
      timeout: 100_000,
    },
    blockscoutVerify: {
      blockscoutURL: "<your ZK rollup explorer url>",
      ...
    }
  }

Run the deploy scripts using hardhat-deploy.

npx hardhat deploy --tags DAO

Make sure the accounts in hardhat.config.ts have some $BVM.

Interact with the contracts

Once the contracts are deployed, you can interact with them. We've prepared a few hardhat tasks to make it easy for you to interact with the contracts.

npx hardhat createProposal --target <your-address-to-receive-funds> --value <proposal-amount> --description <proposal-description>
npx hardhat castVote --id <proposal-id> --vote <voting-amount>
npx hardhat getState --id <proposal-id>
