Prepare Environment

In this section, you need the tools and environment to develop and run smart contracts. You can utilize our Mainnet to deploy and make contract calls. You may consider testing your transaction on Testnet before doing it on Mainnet.

Checking the Network

You can check the mainnet network by viewing the Explorer website:

The explorer can explore transactions, addresses, information about the network, and blocks.

To verify that testnet node is alive:

You can use ParallelChain Client (called pchain_client) to interact with the testnet node.

Set Up ParallelChain Client

Before we start developing the smart contracts, the pchain_client executable needs to be configured.

If you are not yet familiar with pchain_client, See Install and Setup to install pchain_client and learn about the basic functionalities before proceeding with smart contract development.
