Writing Your First Plutus Smart Contract



And there you have it, you have created your own Plutus smart contract! Though a word of caution, the smart contract you just finished creating is not safe to use live with real ada. Your money will be freely withdrawn by any bad actor as the PIN number is not encrypted nor long enough to actually be safe. This is merely a first taste to explain the basic concepts you’ll need to know on your path to becoming a Plutus developer.

We have only touched the surface of what is possible, so this is just the first step of your dive into the world of Plutus smart contracts. If you haven’t already, don’t forget to try out the Quiz to see how well you absorbed the content from the Lesson!

If you have any questions, comments, or constructive criticism about this lesson, feel free to post in the Writing Your First Plutus Smart Contract Q/A Thread on the forum and I will be more than happy to clarify and answer.

Furthermore, try creating some unique smart contracts of your own and share them with the rest of the community on the Cardano Forum Developer Section.

More lessons just like this will be created in the future covering interesting features of Plutus while building different types of smart contracts all together. If you want to be kept up to date make sure you sign-up for the Clio.1 Education Newsletter.

Thanks for reading all of the way through, and I hope to see you become part of the Plutus Developer Community.
