We are excited to introduce the Sismo App Store, a cornerstone of our effort to expand the accessibility and understanding of Sismo Connect.
The Sismo App Store is a central hub for users to discover new Sismo Connect Apps. It is open-source and designed so builders can effortlessly construct their own apps from templates and add them to the store, even without coding knowledge.
Most apps are gated to specifics types of users such as NFT owners, DAO members or web3 social users so we provided a demo version of the App Store: anyone can experience Sismo Connect!
Apps are grouped under Spaces, which anyone can create for their community by following the guide on our dedicated resources pages.
Once a Space is up, you can add Sismo Connect Apps to it. It's quick and simple to create an app from our adjustable templates - we'll discuss this more shortly.
They are applications using Sismo Connect libraries to request ZK Proofs from users’ privately aggregated data (e.g NFT ownerships, GitHub contributions or DAO memberships). These ZK Proofs are then verified in a backend or smart contract based on whether the app is onchain or offchain.
To help builders, we provide templated apps that require no coding skills (resources).
This template enables the creation of a privacy-preserving form that can:
Be gated from privately aggregated data (e.g token owner of my project AND Gitcoin Passport holder with sufficient Sybil-resistant score)
Receive users’ personal data via ZK Proofs such as their Twitter/ GitHub/ Telegram accounts and/or wallets, and anonymous granular data about their accounts (e.g amount of tokens owned, number of votes in a DAO, etc.)
The Aave-Chan Initiative used the zkForm template to collect physical addresses from their delegates without needing their wallet information.
The zkForm template can be used to generate privacy-preserving apps:
Event invitation forms
Forms to send physical items
You can restrict your Telegram group access, preserving user’s privacy with Sismo Connect:
A Telegram group for DAO members or token holders without revealing private wallets
Anonymous Telegram groups for delegates or followers without revealing public wallets
Drop NFTs to specific users in a privacy preserving way. For instance all github contributors and DAO participants.
Developers can also build custom applications. Concrete examples will be out and forkable soon on our App Store repository.
This wraps up our Sismo App Store introduction. We'll continue to offer more templates and can't wait to see what you will make out of it!
Stay tuned to our blog!
🎭 Sismo, with love 💜
