NCFP-16: [Draft] One-way wrapped Nyzo on different chains (ETH/RSK/...)

(This is a draft version)
Main objective: To expose nyzo chain to more potential buyers/users.

Key points:

  • Multisig smart contract: a contract that requires multi-signatures to make a transaction. Currently, this can be done on Ethereum.
  • Who will be the person that has the power to sign the smart contract?
    • Anyone can be a candidate. Just make a cycle tx and publish it on discord or here.
    • Using Nyzo voting system to vote.
    • I personally recommend 8+ people.

Requirements for the voted person:
- Check transactions and sign them at least every day.
- Make sure the fund and their key are safe and well-protected.

Requirement for contract developer(s):
- Write and maintain the contract.
- Fix bug and create new contract (if needed).

Requirement for platform developer(s):
- Create a platform/api_system for the committee to check, sign new transactions and transfer wrapped token.
- Create a frontpage to show all transactions status.

How it will work?

  • To convert from X Nyzo to X wNyzo, you have to send X Nyzo to the community fund with your wallet address on another chain in the comment field.
  • In maximum of 24 hours, your transaction will be approved by the voted committee.
  • There no good way to convert wNyzo back to Nyzo. So the market Nyzo/wNyzo will be formed by the community via OTC. (faster)


  • 200 NYZO for testing.

For each new chain:

  • 500 NYZO for 1 voted person per month. Pay in batch 3-month.
  • 10,000 NYZO for contract developer(s). Pay once.
  • 20,000 NYZO for platform developer(s). Pay once.


  • Some of the voted committee members don’t approve your transaction. If he/she is completely uncontactable, a new nyzo smart contract will be created.

Total: 200 + 30,000 + 500 * (the number of members of the voted committee, minimum 8) ~ 34,200 NYZO.

Feel free to discuss and add more input.

  1. How to use Nyzo voting system to vote, the same as sign cycle tx?
  2. Is the person signing the smart contract fixed, for example, we pre-select suitable candidates? Or just need to reach a certain fixed number of people?
  3. How to deal with transactions fees on other chains?

Could you clarify the 2 chains and what takes place where?
Things like multisigs, contracts, transaction aso can relate to nyzo or target chain, it’s very unclear in current draft what is where.
A simplified workflow would help figure out and better explain the potential issues (several I can foresee at various levels)
Also, potential confusion between “voted person” and “comitee”. Who has what keys and signs what?

amounts: operational fees seem low. No recurrent fee for the platform, 500 nyzo a month split among the highly accountable users who will have to check and sign txs every day from a secure setup?

1/ Yeah, make a cycle tx of 1 nyzo and the title is some kind of “Hi, I’m tsssk and very trustworthy, please vote for me”.
2/ The more the better I guess.
3/ A certain amount of NYZO would be raised from the community fund to convert to ETH to do that.

here is the scenario of A want to convert 10 Nyzo to 10 wNyzo:
1/ A send 10 NYZO to community fund address with his Ethereum address in memo field.
2/ All 8 members of the committee verify that A successfully transferred 10 NYZO to the community fund.
3/ 8 members of the committee sign a transaction from a multisig wallet to transfer 10wNYZO to that person on Ethereum chain.

All works of those 8 members can be automated.

Yeah, there should be a maintenance fee for the platform.
And, 500 nyzo/month for each person.

Sounds great! :+1:

If it can be achieved technically, this would be a good idea. Full support.


Hypothetically, if we select example 10 people , do we set a mechanism in place that requires ALL 10 people to sign Multisig tx and approving someones request for wNyzo or do we set a system that requires 75-80% of sigs, in this case 8 people (rounded 75% to next full number --> 8) ?

that way you in a way reduce the risk of some signers falling out of sync, go offline , abandon post , leave project, die etc… and stalling other peoples requests for wNyzo…
