Everest

Everest is a universally shared registry of crypto projects, built on Ethereum, IPFS, The Graph and 3Box. The Everest registry is a community-curated registry composed of projects and categories that make up the Web3 ecosystem.

Everest’s mission is to catalyze the shift to Web3 by organizing all the projects that are working toward this common goal. Decentralization will create transparency and opportunity, enabling anyone in the world to contribute their talents to a global economy.

The Everest Registry will include any organization that believes in the goals of decentralization and the spirit of discovering and building radically new ways for humans to cooperate and organize. The registry uses the ERC-1056 identity standard for interoperability to allow project identities to be used across applications.

To contribute to the Everest registry, users can add projects, challenge existing projects and vote on challenges to curate the registry. Project owners can also edit project details at any time and delegate voting to other users.

Read the Everest Charter to learn more about project listing guidelines, registry curation, project challenges and community maintenance.

Everest is built on The Graph, an indexing and querying layer for efficient retrieval of blockchain data. The Everest subgraph captures project details using the ERC-1056 identity standard and can be queried by other dApps to integrate project data. The goal of Everest is to be a starting point for creating useful data on-chain, that can be referenced by other dApps via shared APIs.

Interacting with Everest and the path for full decentralization

Currently Everest is controlled by the team at The Graph. When someone applies to add a project, or when they challenge, they must deposit real DAI. The first time you interact with Everest, it will ask you to sign a message - which calls permit() on the DAI contract. This allows Everest to transfer your DAI by having an unlimited allowance.

It should also be noted, the owner of the contracts is an address that The Graph is in control of. This was done for the V1, and it is a point of centralization. At any time the funds within Everest can be withdrawn by the team.

The team intends to launch a fully decentralized version in the future, where the funds can be spent to further the development of Everest. For now the team is leaving the funds in Everest, and will not take it out.

Repo Structure

This monorepo contains:

Setup

Prerequisites:

  • nvm
  • yarn

Run these commands from the root directory:

  • Install Dependencies
    • nvm install $(cat .nvmrc)
    • nvm use $(cat .nvmrc)
    • yarn

Quick start

Run Everest UI locally with contracts already deployed to Ropsten

  1. Create an .env.development file inside of the ui folder with the following content:
GATSBY_IPFS_HTTP_URI=https://ipfs.everest.link/
GATSBY_NETWORK_CONNECTOR_URI=https://ropsten.infura.io/v3/[INFURA_ID]
GATSBY_INFURA_ID=[INFURA_ID]
GATSBY_NETWORK_URI=https://api.thegraph.com
GATSBY_GRAPHQL_HTTP_URI=https://api.thegraph.com/subgraphs/name/graphprotocol/everest-ropsten
GATSBY_CHAIN_ID=3
  1. In the root of the project run:
yarn start:dev-ropsten

This will build mutations, and bring up the UI on port 4000.

  1. In your browser, go to http://localhost:4000

Run Everest locally with contracts already deployed to Ethereum Mainnet

  1. Create an .env.development file inside of the ui folder with the following content:
GATSBY_IPFS_HTTP_URI=https://ipfs.everest.link/
GATSBY_NETWORK_CONNECTOR_URI=https://mainnet.infura.io/v3/[INFURA_ID]
GATSBY_INFURA_ID=[INFURA_ID]
GATSBY_NETWORK_URI=https://api.thegraph.com
GATSBY_GRAPHQL_HTTP_URI=https://api.thegraph.com/subgraphs/name/graphprotocol/everest
GATSBY_CHAIN_ID=1
  1. In the root of the project run:
yarn start:dev-mainnet

This will build mutations, and bring up the UI on port 4000.

  1. In your browser, go to http://localhost:4000

Run Everest in production mode

If you want to build Everest and run it in production mode (with contracts on Ropsten or Mainnet), rename the above .env.development file to .env.production (or duplicate it). From the root of the project, run:

yarn build:mutations
yarn build:ui

After those builds finish, you can run

yarn serve

and access the UI in the browser at http://localhost:9000

Deploying contracts

See the instructions in the README in the ./contracts folder.

Deploying subgraphs

Deploying the subgraphs can be done from the root folder. You can also run the local UI, or use production UI to see the new subgraph in action. To deploy a new subgraph, with local UI, run:

yarn deploy-subgraph-ropsten
yarn start:dev-ropsten

To deploy a new subgraph to mainnet, with local UI, run:

yarn deploy-subgraph-mainnet
yarn start:dev-mainnet

Note - You must run these in the root folder

Currently it is configured to only work with the subgraph named graphprotocol/everest. If you are not a member of graphprotocol on github, you will not be able to deploy the subgraph. Make sure to change the code to deploy to a subgraph under your own github name.

yarn deploy-subgraph-ropsten and yarn deploy-subgraph-mainnet do the following:

  • Building the ./contracts sub repository
  • Building the ./subgraph sub repository
  • Building the ./subgraph/mutations sub repository
  • Once all builds are successful, it will deploy the subgraph to the respective network on the hosted service for the graph (when the code is merged into master)

Running the UI locally

Normally the development of the subgraph and the front-end can be done on their own. You can run the UI independently, and decide whether it should use the Ropsten subgraph or contracts, or Mainnet. For local development, we want to use Ropsten.

To run the UI, use either start:dev-ropsten or start:dev-mainnet. These do the following:

  • Starts the UI at localhost:4000 after a subgraph is already deployed to the hosted service. (They each take a different different .env file for each network.

To deploy to an actual website, there is a setup with Docker and google cloud. This process depends on the following two commands:

yarn build:mutations
yarn build:ui

Notes on using Lerna for this monorepo

It is recommended for development to build all the sub repositories from the top level root folder with node scripts. Lerna allows for this, and is a smooth process. Only run node scripts in the contracts repository to deploy contracts.
