Dapp Integration with Reclaim Tutorial


Welcome to the comprehensive tutorial on seamlessly integrating your decentralized application (Dapp) with Reclaim using Solidity and Ether.js. This integration will empower your Dapp to verify user claims and execute actions based on their identity, providing a robust and secure user experience.


Before you begin, make sure you have the following:


We'll walk you through a series of steps to integrate your Dapp with Reclaim for identity verification and action execution.

Register your Smart Contract in Reclaim

Required Libraries

Before you begin, ensure that you have the necessary libraries and tools installed. You will need:

You can install these libraries using npm. Open your terminal and run the following commands to install them:

# Install ethers.js
npm install ethers
# Install @semaphore-protocol/identity
npm install @semaphore-protocol/identity
  • Run the following script to generate a DappId and Nullifier and register your dapp:

    • npx hardhat register-dapp --dapp-name {dapp-name} --network {NETWORK} where the {dapp-name} is the name of your dapp and {NETWORK} is the chain, for example, "eth-goerli" or "polygon-mainnet"

    • You can find the list of supported networks here.

import { task } from 'hardhat/config'
import { getContractAddress } from './utils'
import { Identity } from '@semaphore-protocol/identity'
  .addParam('dappName', 'name of the dapp you want to register')
  .setAction(async ({ dappName }, { ethers, upgrades, network }) => {
    const dappIdentity = new Identity(dappName)
    const { nullifier } = dappIdentity
    const reclaimFactory = await ethers.getContractFactory('Reclaim')
    const contractAddress = getContractAddress(network.name, 'Reclaim')
    const Reclaim = await reclaimFactory.attach(contractAddress)
    const createDappTranactionResponse = await Reclaim.createDapp(nullifier)
    const createDappTransactionReceipt =
      await createDappTranactionResponse.wait()
    const dappId = createDappTransactionReceipt.events![0]!.args![0]!
    console.log('External Nullifier:', nullifier)
    console.log('Dapp Id:', dappId)
  • The script will register your dapp in Reclaim, and log the dappId and Nullifier to the console so, they can be used in the next step.
console output
External Nullifier: {value_of_nullifier}
Dapp Id: {value_of_dappId}

Store dappld and nullifier in your contract

  • You should store dappld and nullifier values you received in step 1 in your smart contract.
  • Pass the dappld and nullifier through your smart contract constructor.
contract YourSmartContract {
    uint256 public externalNullifier;
    bytes32 public dappId;
   	constructor(uint256 _externalNullifier, bytes32 _dappId, address reclaimAddress){
      externalNullifier = _externalNullifier;
      dappId = _dappId;

Verify Claim

  • Purpose: This step is essential to verify the validity and trustworthiness of a user's claim or identity.

  • Integration: You can seamlessly integrate claim verification into your dapp using the Reclaim SDK. For a quick start, refer to the Quickstart guide.

  • Data Storage: Ensure that you store the generated proof after the claim is successfully verified. This proof will be needed for the next step in the process.

Merkelize User

Before your dapp contract can verify a user's identity, the user must submit a Reclaim proof to the Reclaim contract and be added to a Merkel tree. To achieve this, you need to call Reclaim.merkelizeUser() within the onSuccess callback of proof generation on the frontend, after successfully receiving the proof.

import { usePrepareContractWrite } from 'wagmi'
import RECLAIM from '../../contract-artifacts/Reclaim.json'
import { useEffect, useState } from 'react'
import { ethers } from 'ethers'
export default function UserMerkelizer({ proofObj, identity }) {
  //... Check that the proofObj is successfully received.
  //... Check that the identity is successfully generated.
  const [isMerkelizePrepared, setIsMerkelizePrepared] = useState(false)
  const { config } = usePrepareContractWrite({
    abi: RECLAIM.abi,
    functionName: 'merkelizeUser',
    args: [proofReq, identity?.commitment.toString()],
    chainId: 420,
    onSuccess(data) {
    onError(error) {
      if (error.message.includes('AlreadyMerkelized')) {
        console.log('This user is already merkelized!!!!')
  const { write } = userContractWrite(config)
  write?.() // Calling merkelizeUser() after validating the proofObj...
  //... Rest of the code

Completing the Action

After ensuring that the user is merkelized, you can call your smart contract action (for example, YourSmartContract.airDrop()). We recommend adding a non-trivial time delay between calling merkelizeUser and submitting the proof to your contract. The longer the time delay, the higher the degree of anonymization.

const callYourContractAction = async () => {
    const provider = new ethers.providers.JsonRpcProvider('<YOUR_JSON_RPC_URL>');
    const signer = new ethers.Wallet('<YOUR_PRIVATE_KEY>', provider);
    const contractAddress = '<YOUR_CONTRACT_ADDRESS>';
    const contractAbi = [<YOUR_CONTRACT_ABI>]; // Replace with your contract's ABI
    const contract = new ethers.Contract(contractAddress, contractAbi, signer);
    try {
        const tx = await contract.airDrop(data);
        await tx.wait();
        console.log('Transaction confirmed:', tx.hash);
    } catch (error) {
        console.error('Error sending data:', error);
export default function UserMerkelizer({ proofObj, identity }) {
    useEffect(() => {
        if (!isMerkelizePrepared) return
        setTimeout(() => {
        }, 8000)
    }, [isMerkelizePrepared])
    //... Rest of the code
  • Dapp Smart Contract verifies the user's identity with the Reclaim Contract using verifyMerkleIdentity(semaphoreProof, dappId, externalNullifier,...).
  • If successful, the Reclaim Contract completes the action and emits a ProofVerified event.
  • Dapp Smart Contract completes the airdrop action successfully.
    contract YourSmartContract{
        uint256 public externalNullifier;
        bytes32 public dappId;
        ReclaimInterface private Reclaim;
        funtion airDrop(
                string memory provider,
                uint256 _merkleTreeRoot,
                uint256 _signal,
                uint256 _nullifierHash,
                uint256[8] calldata _proof
            ) external {
                    ), "Proof not valid"
                // continue action
  • Note: if Reclaim.verifyMerkleIdentity() call never reverted the airDrop will continue and the airDrop will completed successsfully, otherwise, airDrop will be reverted since something went wrong when verifying the identity.
