Project Overview 📄


Hex Space Social Graph is heavily inspired by Five Degrees protocol implementation 5degrees Five Degrees propose a simple entity data ownership protocol and use the protocol to capitalize these core data. To make the protocol simple enough, permission-less, and composable, we choose to build the protocol under the existing ERC-1155 standard. Compatible with the ERC-1155 standard, meaning it will be easily implanted into any protocol or business of Web3 that supports ERC-1155. The NFT generated in the protocol can be traded in any NFT market, also any smart contract that requires user relationships can track this data on chain. Any application that supports ERC-1155, can easily integrate this protocol.

Project Details

With the development of the Web3.0 industry, entities build a relationship network by minting target NFTs, thereby forming a huge transparent, unified, and permission-less relationship network infrastructure. All DAPPs focus on their own business, and combine the relationship network to realize various products. For example, a social module can be added to Uniswap, so that users can easily know the detailed data of the transactions of the people they follow, or a moment feature can be added to OpenSea, so that users can easily know what kinds of NFTs are their friends trading or holding, just like integrating Twitter or Discord into OpenSea, or if a social network product uses this solution to start its business, the user's friend relationship can be reconnected in Sandbox even the product failed. Core methods: Set Entity's Info:Invoke setInfo to set entity's information Get Entity's Info:Invoke contract's URI methods to get current entity's information Set entity's followers limitation:invoke increaseMaxSupply method Build the relationship between entities:Invoke mint method to mint an NFT of the following, hold his NFT means your relationship is connected Destroy the relationship between entities:Invoke burn method to destroy a following's NFT to disconnect the relationship Get entity's follower list:Query through check the who is holding the entity's NFT Get entity's following list:Query through check the whose NFT is the entity holding.

Milestone 1 — Implement Five Degrees ink! Contract & Front-end Modules

  • Estimated duration: 1 month
  • FTE: 1
  • Costs: 3,500 USD
0b.DocumentationWe will provide both inline documentation of the code and a basic tutorial that explains how a user can deploy our smart contract, which will show how the new functionality works.
0c.Testing GuideCore functions will be fully covered by unit tests to ensure functionality and robustness. In the guide, we will describe how to run these tests.
0d.DockerWe will provide a Docker file(s) that can be used to test all the functionality delivered with this milestone.
0e.ArticleWe will publish an article on medium detailing our social protocol construction .! Contract: FiveDegreesThis contract is the overall contract of the FiveDegrees protocol.Set Entity's Info, Get Entity's Info,Build the relationship,Destroy the relationship and so on.
2.protocol front-endWe will deliver the react-based front-end base on substrate-front-end-template with the contract,which demonstrates core methods of the contract.
