The command line tool
tl-deploy allows you to deploy the Trustlines contracts
for creating a new currency network, a trustlines exchange or identity proxies.
Make sure that you have a running ethereum client with enough funds as described here.
tl-deploy --help to find out about the relevant commands:
Usage: tl-deploy [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]... Commandline tool to deploy the Trustlines contracts Options: --help Show this message and exit. Commands: currencynetwork Deploy a currency network contract. exchange Deploy an exchange contract. identity-implementation Deploy an identity implementation contract. identity-proxy-factory Deploy an identity proxy factory. test Deploy contracts for testing.
To get help about a specific command use
tl-deploy COMMAND --help.
Deploy a currency network
A currency network contract handles all trustlines with the same denomination. It allows for transfers between the users of this network.
You can deploy a currency network with the name
Testcoin and symbol
TST by using the command
tl-deploy currencynetwork Testcoin TST
To find out more about the possible options, use
tl-deploy currencynetwork --help
The mandatory arguments are the
NAME and the
SYMBOL of the network.
All other parameters are optional as they have either default values or are not needed in some cases.
Deploy an exchange
An exchange allows users of different currency networks to exchange 1. trustlines currencies,
- trustlines currency for ERC 20 tokens and 3. trustlines currency for wrapped Ether. This exchange is an extension to the 0x protocol, adding support for Trustlines currencies.
You can deploy an exchange with
To get further information, use
tl-deploy exchange --help
The address of this exchange can be used as input for the
--exchange-contract option when creating a currency network.
Deploy identity contracts
We use identity proxy contracts to enable the use of meta-transactions. Through that, new users can directly interact with the deployed currency network contracts without the need of coins to pay for transaction fees. Therefore two contracts need to be deployed.
- Implementation of the identity contract
- Identity proxy factory contract
This contract is the implementation of an identity contract. We need to deploy it to set the implementation of deployed identity proxies.
To get further information, run
tl-deploy identity-implementation --help
The proxy factory contract is used to create identity proxies, where the implementation need to be set.
Same as above you can get further information on the usage by running
tl-deploy identity-proxy-factory --help
