MyBit Network - Contract SDK

CircleCI Coverage Status

A software development kit for the automated machine economy.

The contract SDK is a set of contracts that implement the business logic for the network. The Network SDK is a tool for building Wealth Management Decentralised Applications, without needing in depth blockchain knowledge. For a simple example you can see Hello-Network. To quickly integrate the SDK contracts see Network.js.

Getting Started

First install dependencies using Yarn:


If successful you should see output similar to below:

[1/4] Resolving packages...
[2/4] Fetching packages...
[3/4] Linking dependencies...
[4/4] Building fresh packages...
Done in 5.69s.


To start local blockchain, Ganache run:

yarn blockchain

In another terminal window, you can now run the tests:

yarn tests

To see code-coverage run:

yarn coverage


There are generally 4 different roles on the platform. The Investor, the AssetManager, the Operator, and the PlatformOwners. Investors can contribute ETH or Erc20 tokens to invest in new asset crowdsales. The continued functioning of the asset is ensured by the AssetManager, who receives a fee for his work and escrows tokens as collateral to investors. The Operator receives funds from the crowdsale and produces and installs the asset. PlatformOwners can choose how assets are governed, and whether or not a contract upgrade should happen. The platform owner can be a single account or a contract governed by many accounts.

Contract overview

Before creating assets, certain variables and parameters have to be set:

  • All contracts must be registered in ContractManager before writing to database

  • All users must approve the current contract state, which changes everytime a contract is added/updated in ContractManager

  • Users must approve ERC20Burner to burn platform tokens before using key functionality

  • Platform wallet and platform token must be set

  • Operators must be registered and choose which currencies they wish to accept

Basic functionality for these critical operations are outlined below.

All contracts are found here


Contracts in the SDK store all long-term data in a database contract, which allows for contracts to be upgraded without losing valuable data. The Database stores all data using a bytes32 type, which is often the keccak256 hash of the variableName, ID, address that make up that variable.

The Database stores any data type under a bytes32 key:

mapping(bytes32 => uint) public uintStorage;
mapping(bytes32 => string) public stringStorage;
mapping(bytes32 => address) public addressStorage;
mapping(bytes32 => bytes) public bytesStorage;
mapping(bytes32 => bytes32) public bytes32Storage;
mapping(bytes32 => bool) public boolStorage;
mapping(bytes32 => int) public intStorage;

Storing an integer looks like this:

database.setUint(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("fundingDeadline", assetID)), 20000000);

The Database stores this with key = sha3("fundingDeadline", assetID) and value = 20000000

function setUint(bytes32 _key, address _value)
external {
uintStorage[_key] = _value;


The API contract can be used to easily fetch variables from the database

function getAssetFundingDeadline(bytes32 _assetID)
returns(uint) {
uint fundingDeadline = database.uintStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("fundingDeadline", _assetID)));
return fundingDeadline;

The Database restricts write access to only contract that are on the platform

// Caller must be registered as a contract through ContractManager.sol
modifier onlyApprovedContract() {
require(boolStorage[keccak256(abi.encodePacked("contract", msg.sender))]);

To give a contract write access to the database, you must call addContract(contractName, contractAddress) from a platform owner account:

function addContract(string _name, address _contractAddress)
isTrue(_contractAddress != address(0))
isTrue(bytes(_name).length != uint(0))
anyOwner {
require(!database.boolStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("contract", _contractAddress))));
require(database.addressStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("contract", _name))) == address(0));
database.setAddress(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("contract", _name)), _contractAddress);
database.setBool(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("contract", _contractAddress)), true);
bytes32 currentState = database.bytes32Storage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("currentState")));
bytes32 newState = keccak256(abi.encodePacked(currentState, _contractAddress));
database.setBytes32(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("currentState")), newState);
emit LogContractAdded(_contractAddress, _name, block.number);

Every time a contract is added or updated the contract state will change, requiring approval from users before they interact with the platform. Users can also choose to ignore future state changes. This can be done by calling the following function:

function setContractStatePreferences(bool _acceptCurrentState, bool _ignoreStateChanges)
returns (bool) {
bytes32 currentState = database.bytes32Storage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("currentState")));
database.setBool(keccak256(abi.encodePacked(currentState, msg.sender)), _acceptCurrentState);
database.setBool(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("ignoreStateChanges", msg.sender)), _ignoreStateChanges);
emit LogContractStatePreferenceChanged(msg.sender, _acceptCurrentState, _ignoreStateChanges);
return true;

Functions which directly effect the user in case of contract upgrades will use the acceptedState() modifier to prevent users from accidentally interacting with contracts that they haven't agreed to interact with.

modifier acceptedState(address _investor) {
bytes32 currentState = database.bytes32Storage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("currentState")));
require(database.boolStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked(currentState, _investor))) || database.boolStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("ignoreStateChanges", _investor))));

To create new asset orders, or purchase existing asset orders, users must provably burn MYB using the burner. Functions that require burning have the burnRequired modifier:

// @notice reverts if investor hasn't approved burner to burn platform token
modifier burnRequired {
require(burner.burn(msg.sender, database.uintStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked(msg.sig, address(this))))));

To do this each user must approve the burner contract to burn tokens by calling the MYB contract:

function approve(address _spender, uint256 _value) public returns (bool) {
allowed[msg.sender][_spender] = _value;
emit Approval(msg.sender, _spender, _value);
return true;
  • spender in this case should be the address of the ERC20Burner contract. value should be placed high enough to avoid needing to approve the burner every use

Tokens are burnt before the function runs due to the modifier burnRequired which calls burn() at the burner contract:

function burn(address _tokenHolder, uint _amount)
returns (bool) {
require(token.burnFrom(_tokenHolder, _amount));
emit LogMYBBurned(_tokenHolder, msg.sender, _amount);
return true;

Functions that require burning:

  • CrowdsaleGeneratorETH.createAssetOrderETH()

  • CrowdsaleETH.buyAssetOrderETH()

  • CrowdsaleGeneratorERC20.createAssetOrderERC20()

  • CrowdsaleERC20.buyAssetOrderERC20()

  • AssetExchange.buyAsset()

  • AssetExchange.createBuyOrder()

Before assets can be funded the platform owners must set the platform token and the platform wallet by using:

function setPlatformWallet(address _walletAddress)
onlyOwner {
database.setAddress(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("platformWallet")), _walletAddress);
emit LogPlatformWallet(_walletAddress);


// @notice
function setPlatformToken(address _tokenAddress)
onlyOwner {
database.setAddress(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("platformToken")), _tokenAddress);
emit LogPlatformToken(_tokenAddress);

The Operator must be registered and define what currencies they are willing to receive as payment. To set the operators you can call:

function registerOperator(address _operatorAddress, string _operatorURI)
onlyOwner {
require(_operatorAddress != address(0));
bytes32 operatorID = keccak256(abi.encodePacked(_operatorURI));
require(database.addressStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("operator", operatorID))) == address(0));
database.setAddress(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("operator", operatorID)), _operatorAddress);
database.setBytes32(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("operator", _operatorAddress)), operatorID);
emit LogOperatorRegistered(operatorID, _operatorURI);

To choose which currencies the operator would like to accept they can call:

function acceptERC20Token(bytes32 _operatorID, address _tokenAddress, bool _accept)
returns (bool) {
database.setBool(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("acceptsToken", _operatorID, _tokenAddress)), _accept);
return true;


function acceptEther(bytes32 _operatorID, bool _accept)
returns (bool) {
database.setBool(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("acceptsEther", _operatorID)), _accept);
return true;

:heavy_exclamation_mark: The Operator can choose to accept Ether and an unlimited number of ERC20 tokens if they want.

Creating Assets

To create assets you will use CrowdsaleGeneratorETH or CrowdsaleGeneratorERC20

For Ether based crowdsales you would call createAssetOrderETH() from the AssetManager account, effectively creating a new crowdsale

function createAssetOrderETH(string _assetURI, bytes32 _operatorID, uint _fundingLength, uint _amountToRaise, uint _assetManagerPerc)
returns (bool) {
require(_amountToRaise > 0);
require(_assetManagerPerc < 100);
require(database.boolStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("acceptsEther", _operatorID))));
require(database.addressStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("operator", _operatorID))) != address(0));
bytes32 assetID = keccak256(abi.encodePacked(msg.sender, _amountToRaise, _operatorID, _assetURI));
require(database.uintStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("fundingDeadline", assetID))) == 0);
address assetAddress = address(new DividendToken(_assetURI, database.addressStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("contract", "CrowdsaleETH"))))); // Gives this contract all new asset tokens
database.setUint(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("fundingDeadline", assetID)), now.add(_fundingLength));
uint assetManagerFee = _amountToRaise.mul(uint(100).mul(scalingFactor).div(uint(100).sub(_assetManagerPerc)).sub(scalingFactor)).div(scalingFactor);
database.setUint(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("assetManagerFee", assetID)), assetManagerFee);
database.setUint(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("amountToRaise", assetID)), _amountToRaise);
database.setAddress(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("tokenAddress", assetID)), assetAddress);
database.setBytes32(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("assetTokenID", assetAddress)), assetID);
database.setAddress(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("assetManager", assetID)), msg.sender);
database.setAddress(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("operator", assetID)), database.addressStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("operator", _operatorID))));
emit LogAssetFundingStarted(assetID, msg.sender, _assetURI, address(assetAddress));
return true;

Funding Assets

To fund an asset you can use either CrowdsaleETH or CrowdsaleERC20

For Ether based crowdsales you would call buyAssetOrderETH() from the investor account:

function buyAssetOrderETH(bytes32 _assetID)
returns (bool) {
EtherDividendInterface assetToken = EtherDividendInterface(database.addressStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("tokenAddress", _assetID))));
uint amountToRaise = database.uintStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("amountToRaise", _assetID)));
uint tokensRemaining = amountToRaise.sub(assetToken.totalSupply());
if (msg.value >= tokensRemaining) {
// Give assetManager his portion of tokens
require(assetToken.mint(database.addressStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("assetManager", _assetID))), database.uintStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("assetManagerFee", _assetID)))));
require(finalizeCrowdsale(_assetID)); // delete unnecessary variables
require(assetToken.mint(msg.sender, tokensRemaining)); // Send remaining asset tokens
require(payoutETH(_assetID, amountToRaise)); // 1 token = 1 wei
msg.sender.transfer(msg.value.sub(tokensRemaining)); // Return leftover WEI after cost of tokens calculated and subtracted from msg.value
else {
require(assetToken.mint(msg.sender, msg.value));
emit LogAssetPurchased(_assetID, msg.sender, msg.value);
return true;

If the funding fails you can call refund() , which sends all funds to the asset-token contract to be redistributed to investors

Distributing Revenue

By default all assets generated on the platform are able to receive payments and distribute revenue according to tokens held by investors. It accomplishes this by keeping track of how much value (WEI/Token) is contained in each asset-token. The token contract can receive payment in it's fallback function or by calling issueDividends()

Investors can withdraw income by calling withdraw() which updates their personal ledger:

function withdraw()
returns (bool) {
uint amount = incomeOwed[msg.sender].div(scalingFactor);
delete incomeOwed[msg.sender];
emit LogIncomeCollected(msg.sender, amount);
return true;

Onboarding Assets

Using the AssetGenerator contract, users are able to create already funded assets and manage them using the SDK's.

To create a funded asset call:

function createAsset(string _tokenURI, address[] _tokenHolders, uint[] _amount)
returns (bool) {
require (_tokenHolders.length == _amount.length && _tokenHolders.length <= 100);
bytes32 assetID = keccak256(abi.encodePacked(msg.sender, _tokenURI));
require(database.addressStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("tokenAddress", assetID))) == address(0));
FixedDistribution assetInstance = new FixedDistribution(_tokenURI, _tokenHolders, _amount);
database.setAddress(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("assetManager", assetID)), msg.sender);
database.setAddress(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("tokenAddress", assetID)), address(assetInstance));
emit LogAssetCreated(assetID, address(assetInstance), msg.sender, _tokenURI);
return true;

If you want the asset to be tradeable on ERC20 exchanges call:

function createTradeableAsset(string _tokenURI, address[] _tokenHolders, uint[] _amount)
returns (bool) {
require (_tokenHolders.length == _amount.length && _tokenHolders.length <= uint8(100));
address assetGeneratorAddress = database.addressStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("contract", "AssetGenerator")));
bytes32 assetID = keccak256(abi.encodePacked(msg.sender, _tokenURI));
require(database.addressStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("tokenAddress", assetID))) == address(0));
DividendToken assetInstance = new DividendToken(_tokenURI, assetGeneratorAddress); // Gives this contract all new asset tokens
for (uint8 i = 0; i < _tokenHolders.length; i++) {
assetInstance.mint(_tokenHolders[i], _amount[i]);
database.setAddress(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("assetManager", assetID)), msg.sender);
database.setAddress(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("tokenAddress", assetID)), address(assetInstance));
emit LogTradeableAssetCreated(assetID, address(assetInstance), msg.sender, _tokenURI);
return true;


:construction: The SDK's are a work in progress and we hope to implement more features such as asset-governance, platform-governance and obfuscated asset authentication.

We are working on giving investors governance tools to vote for new AssetManagers if the need arises. Voting is based on token holdings and can be accomplished by approving a function call at a particular contract:

function voteForExecution(address _executingContract, bytes32 _assetID, bytes4 _methodID, bytes32 _parameterHash, uint _amountToLock)
returns (bool) {
bytes32 executionID = keccak256(abi.encodePacked(_executingContract, _assetID, _methodID, _parameterHash));
bytes32 numVotesID = keccak256(abi.encodePacked("voteTotal", executionID));
bytes32 investorVotesID = keccak256(abi.encodePacked("investorVotes", executionID, msg.sender));
uint256 numVotes = database.uintStorage(numVotesID);
uint256 investorVotes = database.uintStorage(investorVotesID);
require(lockTokens(_assetID, msg.sender, _amountToLock));
database.setUint(numVotesID, numVotes.add(_amountToLock));
database.setUint(investorVotesID, investorVotes.add(_amountToLock));
return true;
  • executingContract = The address of the contract, where the function is to be called

  • assetID = The ID of the asset in question

  • methodID = The function signature of the funtion to be called ie. bytes4(sha3("exampleFunction(address, uint256, bool)"))

  • parameterHash = The sha3 hash of the exact parameters to be called at that function

  • amountToLock - The number of asset-tokens this investor wishes to lock towards this function call

Governance restricted functions will use the hasConsensus() modifier, which requires that token holders have agreed to call this function with these parameters.

modifier hasConsensus(bytes32 _assetID, bytes4 _methodID, bytes32 _parameterHash) {
bytes32 numVotesID = keccak256(abi.encodePacked("voteTotal", keccak256(abi.encodePacked(address(this), _assetID, _methodID, _parameterHash))));
uint256 numTokens = DivToken(database.addressStorage(keccak256(abi.encodePacked("tokenAddress", _assetID)))).totalSupply();
emit LogConsensus(numVotesID, database.uintStorage(numVotesID), numTokens, keccak256(abi.encodePacked(address(this), _assetID, _methodID, _parameterHash)), database.uintStorage(numVotesID).mul(100).div(numTokens));
require(database.uintStorage(numVotesID).mul(100).div(numTokens) >= consensus, 'Consensus not reached');
