Writing Contracts on Enigma Blockchain
The current Enigma Blockchain is transaction-only, but introducing smart contract functionality is our next milestone. In fact, we’ve already included this in our testnet, where it is called the
compute module. When we introduce Secret Contracts, we will be adding functionality to the
We’ve put together this guide to get you started writing contracts for the Enigma blockchain.
This guide doesn’t include secret contracts, but modifying existing contracts to use our privacy features in the future should be straightforward. A few points to keep in mind before you dig in:
- Contracts are written in Rust, and are built on cosmwasm
- We use enigmacli (our fork of cosmos cli) to interact with the blockchain and with contracts in this guide.
- This guide assumes you will use Docker and deploy a local testnet, rather than use a networked testnet. While we periodically make networked testnets available, we recommend developing locally for now until networked testnets are more stable.
If you run into problems, would like to help improve the guide, or have another idea for how you can contribute, please open an issue and/or message us on Discord, Discourse, or Github!
