Project Overview πŸ“„β€‹

​ The Polkadot Contract Wizard has successfully completed its initial phase, making it easier for users to create and deploy standard smart contracts on the Polkadot ecosystem. In the next phase, we aim to expand the scope of the project by implementing additional features and supporting multiple chains. Our goal is to continue enhancing the user experience and versatility of the Polkadot Contract Wizard, making it a powerful tool for both developers and non-developers. ​


​ In the next phase, we plan to implement the following features: ​

  1. Interaction with deployed contracts through the wizard's UI. ​
  2. Interaction with smart contracts deployed by the user. ​
  3. Shareable Contract Interaction Links ​
  4. Support for multiple chains ​ These enhancements will allow users to create, modify, deploy and interact with smart contracts on different parachains, making the Contract Wizard an indispensable tool for the community within the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystem. ​

Project Details​


1. Interact with deployed contracts​

We will create a functionality that enables users to directly interact with their deployed contracts via the user interface of the wizard. This functionality will be generated dynamically according to the metadata of the contracts. With this, users will be able to conveniently and effectively manage their contracts and carry out interactions using the same tool. ​

2. Interaction with custom smart contracts​

Our platform will offer the capability to interact with any contract of their choice. To utilize this feature, they simply need to provide the metadata, network, and address associated with the contract. Once this information is ready, the user interface will automatically generate a customized user-friendly layout for allowing people to easily interact with their custom contracts. ​

To enhance the user experience and encourage collaboration, we plan to implement a feature for shareable contract interaction links. Once a developer deploys a contract or uploads the metadata for interacting with it on our platform, they can generate a unique, shareable link. This link will contain all necessary information for interacting with the contract, essentially encapsulating the contract's ABI (Application Binary Interface) and its address on the blockchain. Users receiving this link can interact with the contract directly, without needing to reupload the metadata or know the contract's specifics. This feature not only simplifies the process of contract interaction but also fosters collaboration and sharing within the developer community. ​

4. Support for multiple chains​

This tool will offer a feature that enables users to connect to parachains implementing the contracts pallet. We will provide a list of some of these parachains in Polkadot, Kusama, and Rococo networks. Additionally, users will have the option to connect to a network that is not listed by specifying the web socket. ​

Ecosystem Fit​

​ The Polkadot Contract Wizard aims to streamline the onboarding process and enhance usability within the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystem. ​ This project will contribute to the ecosystem in the following ways: ​

  1. Simplifying smart contract creation: The Polkadot Contract Wizard will offer a user-friendly interface that allows individuals with varying levels of technical expertise to create smart contracts without the need for extensive programming knowledge. This will empower more people to participate in the ecosystem and explore the possibilities offered by smart contracts. ​
  2. Enhancing user experience: By providing video tutorials, detailed documentation, and an intuitive interface, we will create a welcoming environment for new users, making it easier for them to get started with smart contracts on Polkadot and Kusama. ​
  3. Expanding the ecosystem's reach: With the inclusion of multiple chains and custom contract creation, the Polkadot Contract Wizard will cater to a broader audience, encouraging more projects and developers to join the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystem. ​
  4. Encouraging community growth and collaboration: By offering comprehensive support and resources, we aim to foster a strong, collaborative community around the Polkadot Contract Wizard, encouraging users to share their experiences, contribute to the project, and help one another succeed. ​
  5. Driving innovation and adoption: By simplifying the process of working with smart contracts, we hope to inspire more users to experiment with new ideas and solutions, driving innovation and adoption within the Polkadot and Kusama ecosystem. ​

Development Status πŸ“–β€‹

​ We have successfully completed the previous grant, and we can confidently affirm that our platform,, is now a user-friendly and highly useful tool. One of the key features of our platform is that it simplifies the deployment of standard smart contracts within the Dotsama ecosystem. With our platform, users no longer have to navigate through complex processes to deploy their contracts. Our streamlined approach means that anyone can deploy a smart contract without requiring advanced technical knowledge, saving time and resources. We are incredibly grateful for the support we have received so far, and we are committed to ensuring that our platform remains a top choice for deploying smart contracts within the Dotsama ecosystem. ​

Future Plans​

​ At team in protofire, our mission is to continue innovating and developing our platform to cater to the ever-changing needs of the smart contract community. We recognize the importance of providing our users with a comprehensive tool that enables them to manage all ink! smart contracts, including those they have created custom. ​ As we continue to develop our platform, we understand the importance of building a community around it. We believe that by creating a community of users, we can facilitate the sharing of knowledge, contracts, and different approaches to problem-solving. Through our platform, users will have the ability to share their experiences, ask questions, and engage with others within the community. This will create an environment that fosters innovation and encourages collaboration, leading to the development of new and exciting ideas. Our hope is that our platform will serve as a hub for all things smart contract-related, where users can come together to learn, grow, and innovate.

Custom contracts

  • Add the possibility of creating custom contracts, not only with the modifiers but adding the ability to write code using the interface.
  • Compile the generated code and deploy it to different parachains.
  • Following the comments made on the pull request, our approach will be based on the ink-playground in order to integrate writing custom code and compiling it.

Social Interaction

  • Create an account to store information.
  • Save your created smart contracts.
  • Be able to share them with the community and ask for help.
  • Provide assistance to other community members. ​
