Polygon is Ethereum's internet of blockchains. It is the leading platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its a growing suite of products offering developers easy access to all major scaling and infrastructure solutions: L2 solutions (ZK Rollups and Optimistic Rollups), sidechains, hybrid solutions, stand-alone and enterprise chains, data availability solutions, and more.

Arweave is a network built to provide scalable and economically sustainable permanent data storage. The network achieves this using a Succinct Proof of Access mining mechanism (enforcing that miners replicate data), as well as a storage endowment that yields interest which is employed to reward miners perpetually.

This jointly funded bounty is to build and allow your users to easily deploy and interact with the Arweave network using MATIC. Your solution must be open source, once built, anyone will be able to spin up a version of the solution and begin to store permanently specific data from the Polygon ecosystem into the Arweave network. By tagging each piece of data and using the bundlr.network's bundle technique on Arweave, the resulting dataset will also be queryable by any dApp’s front-end using a GraphQL interface.


The application shall facilitate a bridge for users in Polygon to easily store data into Arweave, packaging them into bundles using a bundler from the bundlr.network app, and dispatching them to the Arweave network.

Bundlr is a multi-chain layer 2 solution for Arweave which enables native support for Arweave storage on different smart contract blockchains.

Given the availability of tooling and similar implementation work with Polygon and Arweave, a JavaScript/TypeScript-based solution will likely be the fastest to engineers.

The solution must fulfill the following criteria:

  • Allow the user to login with their Polygon wallet.
  • Use bundlr.network to allow users to deploy content with their MATIC tokens.
  • Use of specific tags for the transaction, this will allow you to grab these transactions.
  • Show the submitted transactions and their content to the end user.

Acceptable solutions must include detailed documentation, capable of allowing an engineer unfamiliar with the project to deploy it easily and to easily spin their own projects based on your source code.
