Daily Allowance

This contrat takes advantage of the fact that Rhombus lighhouses are ususally updted at regular intervals and can be configured to call the "poke" function of the target contract.

In this case we set a Rhombus Oracle to (function : tenCentsOfETH) to update a lighthouse once a day. The lighthouse pokes the "DailyAllowance" contract when it receives the data.

The DailyAllowance contract sends 1 dollar to the designated recipient when the lighthouse pokes it.

Setup :

  1. Deploy a lighthouse
  2. Deploy the dailyAllowance contract supplying the lighthouse's address to the constructor
  3. Call changeSearcher in the lighthouse (1) to point to the dailyAllowance (2) contract
  4. Call changeAuth on the Lighthouse (1) to point to the Rhombus Oracles's transaction address
  5. Start a Rhombus oracle ( 10 cents in ETH ) to write to the Lighthouse (1) at a specific time every day


  1. Send a ton of ether to the dailyAllowance contract
  2. Call startPayments specifying the recipient and amount in USD
  3. Watch the recipient receive that amount every day (until the contract runs out of ether)
  4. Call stopPayments to turn off payments.

Note : events are raised even when the payment fails.

Calculations :

When you call startPayment you specify the amount in USD

The value given by the oracle is the ETH value of 10 cents

Payment amount = subscriptionInDollars * 10 * (value in ETH of ten cents)

You can’t perform that action at this time.
