Our thoughts on Ethereum

Setting up Ethereum

Deploying your first contract

contract mortal {
/* Define variable owner of the type address*/
address owner;
/* this function is executed at initialization and sets the owner of the contract */
function mortal() { owner = msg.sender; }
/* Function to recover the funds on the contract */
function kill() { if (msg.sender == owner) suicide(owner); }
contract greeter is mortal {
/* define variable greeting of the type string */
string greeting;
/* this runs when the contract is executed */
function greeter(string _greeting) public {
greeting = _greeting;
/* main function */
function greet() constant returns (string) {
return greeting;
