Polywrap Origin Has Arrived! 💚 🔥
DAO Update: July 2022
Hello Polywrap community;
Thanks for tuning in for this latest update! We've been heads down on the Origin release these last few months and are very excited to start getting Polywrap into the hands of more developers.
A quick reminder:
Polywrap is building the plumbing to deliver web3 everywhere. The Polywrap platform leverages WebAssembly and decentralized hosting to make web3 protocols as easy to integrate as Web2 APIs. Today, our CLI enables developers to rapidly scaffold and deploy protocol wrappers that are natively cross-platform, extendable, secure, and upgradable. Whether you’re a new coder or an experienced engineer, Polywrap is here to help you build more.
We'd appreciate forwarding our first major release of the toolchain to skilled developers and teams, so they can try out Polywrap: https://docs.polywrap.io
Announcing Polywrap Origin’s Release 💚 🔥
Completed Toolchain and CLI rebranding: Web3API is gone. Long live Polywrap!
Wrappers Schemas Simplified: standard GraphQL query and mutation module structures have been merged into one single module per wrapper.
Wrapper Workflows: This new iteration could be seen as “Recipes 2.0”, where workflows allow devs to create scripts and compose complex reproducible queries
Deployment Pipeline: Easily automate a wrapper deployment pipeline
Infrastructure Pipeline: Easily start and stop custom, modular test environments
Simplified Plugin Architecture: Massively reduced boilerplate code required for plugin development
Rust Support: Write your next Wasm wrapper in Rust!
Wrappers and Early Integrations
Polywrap Origin Refactor: We refactored all of our wrappers for compatibility with the new Origin release.
Added support for querying token balances of an address from various EVM-compatible chains, like Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche, Optimism, etc.
Created Coingecko wrapper to fetch data from Coingecko API
Integrated a number of top defi protocols like Uniswap, Aave, Yearn, Compound, Cream, and more in defi-sdk.
Uniswap: The V2 and V3 wrappers have been thoroughly developed, and the new live web demo is being polished by the integrations team.
Tezos: Initially developed by Blockwatch, this integration covers uses like NFTs, Decentralised Exchanges, and Tezos name spaces.
Substrate and Polkadot: Steady progress towards the first implementation, expecting to finish up around August.
Gelato: This resolver built by the Gelato team as a Proof of Concept has enabled other Developer teams to spec out novel systems, like Poolshark’s decentralised group limit orders.
Near: completed development of the wrappers’ second milestone, increased test coverage and wallet functionality.
Gnosis Safe: Coordination, research and planning have ramped up recently to begin development of the Safe wrapper.
Axelar: a proof of concept for cross chain asset bridging (Ethereum, Avalanche, Polkadot, Cosmos)
Additionally, you can see a full overview of the development stages on the graph below, or browse our growing catalog of integrations here.
Polyfolio, the DeFi portfolio aggregator: This scalable web product queries the balances of your Ethereum accounts through the Defiwrapper, interfacing with protocols like Aave, Compound, Sushiswap, and across multiple EVM chains. Recently, the first Milestone of development for this frontend app has been reached. The DAO now expects finalizing the Defiwrapper to fully integrate both tools.
Wrappers.io, a window to pinned wrappers: This prototype supports managing wrappers registered on ENS through a web app. With this tool, wrappers are deployed to IPFS and their Content IDs registered as content hashes on ENS. Users can lookup and download information or files for all uploaded wrappers. On the backend, wrappers.io uses a wrapper IPFS gateway powered by a Polywrap persistence node that pins (to IPFS) all wrappers discovered by its ENS indexing nodes. See it live! → https://wrappers.io
Demo Apps, a full repo on GitHub
Wrap.link, experimental REST-like executable web3 queries: Magic links is a new experimental feature you can use to execute a wrapper remotely, in a REST-like fashion. Try it at https://wrap.link/

Building wrappers: We have started to ramp up support for teams building protocol wrappers and improving the developer experience throughout this process.
More Committed Contributors: Currently the Polywrap DAO has 9 Committed Contributors, and is actively recruiting for the DevRel & Product Manager roles mentioned in the ´Asks´ section above.
Knowledge sharing: Since our Origin release we have started preparing a more structured content production process to create both innovative and evergreen content that drives Polywrap’s adoption.
