Beginner’s Guide to Smart Contract Development on Ethereum

Are you ready to dive into the fascinating world of blockchain technology? Let’s take you on a journey to allow you to comprehend the wonders of the Ethereum smart contract.

What is a Smart Contract?

A Smart Contract is a self-executing contract with the terms of the agreement directly written into code. It exists on the Ethereum blockchain, which makes it almost impossible to alter or fake.

Installing Solidity

To write Smart Contracts, you need to code in a language called Solidity. Installation is simple:

  • Install Node.js and npm.
  • Afterwards, install solidity using npm. Use command: npm install -g solc.

Writing your First Contract

Consider this simple contract which stores and retrieves a number:

pragma solidity ^0.5.16;
contract SimpleStorage {
uint storedData;

function set(uint _data) public {
storedData = _data;

function get() public view returns (uint) {
return storedData;
‘pragma solidity’ specifies the version of solidity your code is written for. The ‘contract’ keyword defines our contract. Afterward, ‘function set’ and ‘function get’ allow you to store and retrieve the data respectively.

Deploying your Smart Contract

After writing your contract, the next step is to compile and deploy it to the Ethereum network. We’ll use a platform called Remix:

  • Go to and paste your contract.
  • Select the compiler version that matches your solidity version and hit compile.
  • Next, on the ‘Deploy and run transactions’ tab, deploy your contract.

After deployment, you should see your contract under ‘Deployed Contracts’. Now, you can interact with your contract on the Ethereum Network!

Final Thoughts

Developing Smart Contracts might seem daunting at first, but practice makes perfect. They are a fundamental part of leveraging blockchain technology and understanding how they work gives you a great head start into this revolutionary technology. Happy coding!
