Its not clear what language the SDK should be in. Perhaps it should be in the most popular language for smart contract developers, not sure whether that is rust or typescript atm.


Great initiative! From my side, I’d like to point out that adding an expanded description of the concept of SDK and its functionalities would be interesting and beneficial for the community : )


its good yes, you are moving ahead, but im confused-
What exactly mean SDK?
How long will it take for integration?
what about benefits?


SDK = Software Development Kit


Governance Proposal: Cross-Chain Distributor SDK

Executive Summary

This proposal introduces the Cross-Chain Distributor SDK, a comprehensive toolkit designed to revolutionize the way airdrops and token claims are managed across multiple blockchain networks. It aims to drastically reduce the technical barriers for protocol interaction, fostering innovation and broader access to decentralized finance (DeFi) opportunities.

Detailed Overview

Background and Rationale

The decentralized ecosystem’s expansion has accentuated the need for seamless interoperability and user-friendly tools for cross-chain transactions. The Cross-Chain Distributor SDK addresses this by offering an integrated solution to deploy, manage, and participate in token distributions across various chains, leveraging the capabilities of Satellite.sol and CrosschainTrancheVestingMerkle.sol contracts.

SDK Components and Features

  • Unified Interface: Simplifies interactions with blockchain contracts, enhancing user experience and developer productivity.
  • Contract Deployment Tools: Streamlines the process of deploying Satellite.sol and CrosschainTrancheVestingMerkle.sol contracts, making them accessible to a wider audience.
  • Airdrop Configuration and Management: Provides customizable templates and management tools for airdrop campaigns, reducing the operational complexity.
  • Cross-Chain Token Claiming: Facilitates a user-friendly process for claiming tokens on different chains, improving accessibility for non-technical users.
  • Comprehensive Documentation: Offers detailed guides and examples, enabling developers to leverage the SDK’s full potential.

High-Level SDK Workflow

  1. Initialization: Developers initiate the SDK, selecting the target chains and configuring the necessary contracts.
  2. Deployment: The SDK simplifies contract deployment, abstracting away the complexities of interacting with smart contracts.
  3. Airdrop Setup: Developers can configure airdrops, specifying distribution parameters and schedules through the SDK’s interfaces.
  4. Claim Process: Users interact with a straightforward interface to claim tokens, supported by the SDK’s cross-chain capabilities.


  • Enhanced Creativity: By lowering technical barriers, the SDK empowers developers to innovate and explore new use cases for airdrops and token distribution.
  • Increased Access: Makes the protocol more accessible, encouraging wider participation and adoption in the DeFi ecosystem.
  • Reduced Friction: Streamlines complex processes, enhancing the overall user experience for both developers and end-users.

Development Plan, Budget, and Timeline

The development of the Cross-Chain Distributor SDK is projected to take 3 weeks, with a budget allocation of $18,000. This includes development, testing, and documentation website.

SDK Architecture Overview

Below is a conceptual UML diagram illustrating the SDK’s architecture and its interaction with the Satellite.sol and CrosschainTrancheVestingMerkle.sol contracts.

[SDK User Interface] --> [SDK Core]

Thank you for your insightful question regarding the programming language for the SDK. The choice of language is crucial for accessibility and developer adoption.

  • Currently, Solidity is the predominant language for Ethereum smart contract development. However, for an SDK that interfaces with smart contracts, TypeScript is widely preferred due to its robust ecosystem, type safety, and its popularity in the web3 development community.
  • TypeScript, being a superset of JavaScript, aligns well with the tools and libraries commonly used in this space.
  • This choice aims to maximize developer convenience and ease of integration with existing systems.

I appreciate your curiosity and eagerness to understand more about the SDK. SDK stands for Software Development Kit.

It’s essentially a collection of tools, libraries, documentation, code samples, processes, and guides that enable developers to create software applications more efficiently.

In the context of this RFP, the Cross-Chain Distributor SDK will provide tools and resources for developers to manage and deploy airdrops and token claims across multiple blockchains easily.

  • Integration time: SDK is designed to be as user-friendly and straightforward as possible. For a developer already familiar with blockchain and smart contract development, integrating the SoftSDK into their existing system should take a few days to a week, depending on the complexity of their project. This includes setting up, configuring airdrops, and testing. Comprehensive documentation and support will further aid in this process.

  • The primary benefits of using this SDK include significantly reduced development time, lower chances of errors, and the ability to focus more on the strategic aspects of airdrop campaigns rather than the technical complexities.
