How to Implement Simple Smart Contracts in Ethereum Blockchain

Having heard a lot about blockchain in the previous years and especially blockchain-based contracts, you may wonder how to actually implement one. The blockchain technology behind cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, known as Ethereum, offers a feature called ‘Smart Contracts‘.

What are Smart Contracts?

Smart Contracts are self-operational programs that facilitate, verify, or even enforce the execution of the contractual clauses on Blockchain. They automate complex transactions without human intervention.

Let’s take a step-by-step tour to create your first Ethereum smart contract!

Step 1: Setup Development Environment

Install Node.js and NPM (Node Package Manager) on your machine. For solidity (language used in Ethereum), install Truffle Suite, which is a framework that provides an environment for Ethereum.

Step 2: Write Smart Contract

Let’s create a simple contract HelloWorld. Inside your project directory, create a new file HelloWorld.sol and paste the code below:

pragma solidity ^0.5.16;

contract HelloWorld {
function sayHello() public pure returns(string memory){
return ‘Hello, World!’;

Step 3: Compile Smart Contract

Truffle provides an easy way to compile the contract. Simply run truffle compile in your project directory. If compiled successfully, it will create a json file in your ‘build/contracts’ directory.

Step 4: Deploy Smart Contract

Before deploying, you need to install and configure Ganache, a local in-memory blockchain. After configuration, deploy the contract with truffle migrate.

Step 5: Interact with Smart Contract

You can use truffle console to interact with your deployed smart contract.

let instance = await HelloWorld.deployed()
let response = await instance.sayHello()

Voila! You should see ‘Hello, World!’ printed in your console.

Wrapping up, below is the

    sequence of steps for creating your first smart contract on Etherum:

    – Install Node.js and NPM
    – Install Truffle Suite
    – Write your smart contract in Solidity
    – Compile your smart contract with Truffle
    – Deploy your smart contract using Ganache
    – Interact with your smart contract via Truffle console

    Creating smart contracts with Ethereum can indeed be simple and straightforward!
