What is Midpoint

Call any off-chain endpoint from your smart contract.
See a bug in this documentation? Tell us and we'll send you $100. Updated 2 Dec 2022 13:00 PST.
Midpoint is a protocol and platform for making dynamic requests from smart contracts to off-chain endpoints. Unlike traditional oracle networks - midpoints allow developers to define requests with on-chain parameters, multistep authentication workflows, private off-chain data, and multi-chain callback functions. We believe developers should be able to define and make a call from a smart contract to any off-chain endpoint in under five minutes and with one line of code; no deploying infrastructure and no talking to a support team.
There is no predefined list of midpoints or list of services/websites that you can use midpoint to interact with. Every day developers build midpoints to connect their smart contract to new services and endpoints - ones that we (Midpoint Labs) - have never heard of.

We Really Mean It: One Line of Solidity

Request
1
// Build www.midpointapi.com with npm, add a version tag of "23" on GitHub, and deploy to production
2
IMidpoint(startpointAddress).callMidpoint(219, "npm run", bytes1(0x00) "prod", bytes1(0x00), 23);
Request and Response
1
// Check if a DocuSign document has been signed
2
uint256 requestId = IMidpoint(startpointAddress).callMidpoint(134, "a1cf7e68-872f-4374-b6de-129ca07fe16f");

4
// Take action accordingly
5
function callback(uint256 _requestId, uint64 _midpointId, string memory status, uint8 signers) public
Today developers are using midpoints to interact with hundreds of off-chain endpoints including Twilio, Stripe, Docusign, Slack, Twitter, Google Maps, OpenAI, Wikipedia, and Discord. Discover the community, see sample projects, and get support by following us on Twitter, joining our Discord.
