In the previous chapters we have managed to issue a (classic) Stellar Assets in the (classic) Stellar blockchain.
In this chapter we will wrap that Stellar Asset into a Stellar Asset Contract (SAC) token inside Soroban.
Before using the
soroban-cli, we need to configure it by telling which account will be executing and signing the transactions. In order to do this, we will call the
soroban config identity command and we will provide it with the account's private key.
Here we will suppose that our user is the token admin of the asset, so we will call it
token-admin, but you can choose another name for this.
- Setup your
First create the folder if it does not exist yet
mkdir -p ./soroban/identities
soroban-cli will read from here your identities. Inside this folder you'll need to create one file with
.toml for every identity you want to have. If you want to have
.soroban/identities folder should have 3 files and should look like this
.soroban/identities/user-name-1.toml .soroban/identities/user-name-2.toml .soroban/identities/user-name-3.toml
user-name-X is a text file with the following structure:
In this Playground we have our secrets in the
./settings.json file, hence we will do:
TOKEN_ADMIN_SECRET=$(cat ./settings.json | jq -r '.issuerSecret' ) mkdir -p ".soroban/identities" echo "secret_key = \"$TOKEN_ADMIN_SECRET\"" > ".soroban/identities/token-admin.toml"
- Configure your soroban-cli to use the
soroban config identity address token-admin
For this you'll need the full Stellar Asset identification read our chapter about Basic Concepts. The asset identification is built by:
- The asset code (example:
- The issuer address (example:
In order to wrap an asset you'll need to use the
soroban lab token wrap command as follows:
soroban lab token wrap --network standalone --identity token-admin --asset "ASSET_CODE:ISSUER_ADDRESS"
token-admin identity is the identity of the user that will sign the transaction. We will see in a further chapter that this identity does not necessary needs to be the token admin itself.
This command will return the
id of the SAC smart contract that will manage the wrapped token.
This correspond to the contract id, a 32-byte byte arrays, represented by BytesN<32>
The contract id of this Stellar Asset Contract that is wrapping your Stellar Asset is crucial in order to use the token inside Soroban, so be sure to save it in a safe place!
In order to do this, you can do:
TOKEN_ID=$(soroban lab token wrap $ARGS --asset "$ASSET_CODE:$ISSUER_ADDRESS") echo "Token wrapped succesfully with TOKEN_ID: $TOKEN_ID" echo -n "$TOKEN_ID" > .soroban/token_id
What happens if you did not saved the contract id? Don't worry, in Chapter 9 we will show how to recover the contract id of an already wrapped Stellar Asset.
Here, you'll find a fragmet of the code that includes all steps and exemplifies how to wrap a Stellar Asset:
NETWORK="standalone" ASSET_CODE="MY_ASSET" TOKEN_ADMIN_ADDRESS="GCUA5RTRR4N4ILSMORG3XFXJZB6KRG4QB22Z45BUNO5LIBCOYYPZ6TPZ" ARGS="--network $NETWORK --identity token-admin" TOKEN_ID=$(soroban lab token wrap $ARGS --asset "$ASSET_CODE:$TOKEN_ADMIN_ADDRESS") echo "Token wrapped succesfully with TOKEN_ID: $TOKEN_ID" mkdir -p .soroban echo -n "$TOKEN_ID" > .soroban/token_id
Another example, without the usage of
identity can be:
soroban lab token wrap --asset="AstroDollar:GAM5XOXRUWPMKENBGOEAKMLRQ4ENHLHDSU2L2J7TVJ34ZI7S6PHMYIGI" --secret-key SAHC723FQTC3MARBNUZLUFEIYI62VQDQH7FHLD2FGV6GROQQ7ULMHQGH --rpc-url https://horizon-futurenet.stellar.cash:443/soroban/rpc --network-passphrase 'Test SDF Future Network ; October 2022'
If you want to use our code in the Token Playground's Repo, you can just call our script with the
soroban-preview-7 docker containter
You can run it by:
docker exec soroban-preview-7 ./src/wrap.sh standalone using_docker
Check all the code of our
wrap.sh script here
In the next two chapters we will mint tokens inside Soroban from an already wrapped Stellar Asset using its SAC's contract id. Are you ready?
