Smart Contracts News TLDR / Table of Contents

  • Truffle adds the contract function, which makes sure that your contracts are redeployed, and provides access to the test accounts that are provided by a tool like Ganache.
  • This creates a basic HelloErc20.sol contract file: – Lets run the test again and see what happens.
  • According to the Truffle documentation: – Migrations are JavaScript files that help you deploy contracts to the Ethereum network.
  • js in your projects migrations folder and add the following: – Now that weve told Truffle to migration our new Contract, we need to import a reference to that Contract in our test.
  • A big part of what Truffle is doing is providing a way for you to interact with your Solidity Contracts via JavaScript.

  • So how exactly is NEM aiming to out-compete Ethereum as the top smart contract blockchain?
  • How then will the Catapult overpower Ethereum to be the go-to smart contract blockchain to build and develop decentralized apps (dApps)?
  • These are the three unique features of the NEM Catapult that will change how we use smart contract technology on blockchains.
  • Once the NEM Catapult beta testing is completed it will be available to all users in the world, providing a far much superior network to Ethereum.
  • So hold on to your coins because its only a matter of time before NEM hits $1 and replace Ethereum as the worlds most popular smart contracts platform.

  • Ethereum is considered to be the most widely-used smart-contracts platform, although it has some serious problems.
  • Anyway, it means that in order to overtake Ethereum network any other platform will have to grow by at least 1000% percent per year which is not an easy task.
  • Another problem is that Ethereum smart-contracts are still plagued by some security issues that could be a big turnoff for many larger companies seeking to eventually embrace the technology.
  • These problems provide other platforms such as NEO, EOS, ADA and IOTA to compete with the Ethereum network.
  • NEOs focus on faster transaction speed makes it a capable rival to Ethereum network.
