  1. Chad and Willem from Aha Labs discuss the updates to the new and improved stellar-cli
  2. Some highlights include the change from the name 'soroban' to 'stellar' when using the CLI tool and the addition of new commands.
  3. They cover some cool functions like local network setup, account creation, and transaction signing. with the following commands:
    • stellar network container [start|logs]
    • stellar keys [generate|fund|ls]
    • stellar contract init to get a whole new Soroban project
    • and so much more!
  4. They also discuss expected future updates including support for more Stellar operations and integration with Stellar Laboratory V2!

  1. Tyler created Super Peach, a web3 application that uses passkeys to sign transactions. He demonstrated how passkeys can be used in authorization flows and how they can be used to sign transactions.
  2. Introduced passkey-kit. A TypeScript SDK for creating and managing Smart Wallets via passkeys (includes the actual Smart Wallet interface)
  3. Introduced Launchtube, a service for submitting transactions onchain by covering both the transaction fee AND the sequence number. Wild!
  4. He shared his vision for pushing the passkey implementation through to becoming a standard for the ecosystem.

  1. Tyler built a voting application using passkeys to sign the transaction, which is an implementation of the secp256r1 verification function.
  2. He showed a cross-platform implementation (web and mobile) and demonstrated that passkeys are the perfect interface between web3 contracts and web2 authentication mechanisms that most end users are accostomed to.
  3. Ecosystem members discussed the use of smart wallets that would use passkeys as a signer. Challenges were identified around fees requires for smart wallets, the need for a common implementation for a smart wallet, as well as how might it interface with existing password managers.
  4. The voting application can be tried out at https://passkey.sorobanbyexample.org/
  5. Code for the demo is here https://github.com/kalepail/soroban-passkey

Discord Agenda thread

  1. Fifo presented Stellar Plus, which is a Javascript library to simplify the Stellar and Soroban development.
  2. Ecosystem members found the design for Stellar Plus composable and encompassing of all Stellar related functionality including management of assets, accounts, wasm-related operations, as well as RPC utils.
  3. The links to Fifo's presentation and Stellar Plus are:

Discord agenda thread

  1. Justin from ortege.ai demo'd Ortege, a data analytics platform for Stellar and Soroban.
  2. Ortege lets anyone in the Stellar ecosystem create dashboards to track any and all desired metrics. Ortege's queries, widgets, and dashboards are shareable making it the perfect platform to surface
  3. Justin will be releasing an AI soon and enable querying and insights via natural language.
  4. All are invited to create a free account and track the success metrics for their dashboard.

Today's recording has two parts. The first 12 minutes are audio-only. The next 45 minutes have video as well. Please note the slides were shared in discord chat over screensharing, due to technical difficulties.

Part 1 (audio-only):

Part 2 (video):

Discord Agenda thread

  1. Piyal surfaced the proposal for a Wallet Standard and requested feedback.
  2. Cubist, an ecosystem project, discussed CubeSigner, a low-latency API for generating keys and signing transactions inside secure hardware.
  3. Stellar-based example of CubeSigner is available in the Cubist Labs Github repository
  4. Cubist devs can be contacted via the Stellar discord or the web form.

Discord agenda thread

  1. There's a discussion on a TX meta change increasing visibility and analytics within the Stellar network. (https://github.com/stellar/stellar-xdr/pull/175)
  2. Read-only invocations for contracts is explained, focusing on ensuring certain functions remain read-only without side effects. (https://github.com/stellar/stellar-protocol/discussions/1454) (https://github.com/stellar/stellar-protocol/discussions/1456) (https://github.com/stellar/stellar-protocol/discussions/1464)
  3. Enabling contract discovery is introduced to enhance the visibility and authenticity of smart contracts within the Stellar ecosystem.
  4. The implementation of a standardized contract meta data schema is proposed to link contracts to source code and enhance contract discoverability.(https://docs.rs/soroban-sdk/latest/soroban_sdk/macro.contractmeta.html)
  5. Issues related to inclusion fees in the Stellar network, highlighting the importance of monitoring fees closely and understanding the implications of surge pricing. (https://developers.stellar.org/docs/learn/fundamentals/fees-resource-limits-metering#inclusion-fee)
  6. Plans are discussed for designing a new RPC endpoint to provide developers with better visibility and information on setting inclusion fees, aiming to improve transparency and decision-making regarding fee trade-offs.

Discord agenda thread

  1. Plan and schedule for these meetings
    1. Protocol meetings every other Thursday at 4pm ET
    2. Developer meetings every other Friday at 1pm ET
    3. Will continue to adjust as needed
  2. Fee bump bug - announcement | discussion thread
    1. Fee sponsorship bug: unused fee is refunded to the inner tx source rather than the sponsor source.
    2. Fix in new release. Up to the ecosystem and validators to upgrade. The fix will likely be rolled out before Phase 2.
    3. Up to validators to determine if they’d like to push the v20 upgrade date to wait for the fix; or upgrade with current release.
  3. TxMeta Deprecation in Horizon - announcement
  4. Ideas around testing against ledger snapshots - request
    1. Define the needs a bit more clearly
    2. Definitely something here we should be addressing to make testing against specific ledger state easier
  5. How do you get a list of smart contracts? - thread
    1. Observe create contract ops as ledgers close
    2. Use an indexing service
  6. What is the status of contracts caching support? - question
    1. response
