Build a Dapp on Viction

In this guide:

  • Setting up Hardhat, the most popular development framework for Ethereum which also works perfectly for Viction.

  • Creating a Hardhat project.

  • Creating a Viction wallet.

  • Requesting free tokens using Viction faucet.

  • Writing a smart contract.

  • Compiling and migrating the smart contract to Viction.

  • Connecting Metamask to Viction Testnet.

  • Creating a user interface to interact with the smart contract.

Why should developers build Dapps on Viction?

Remember CryptoKitties in 2017? A single Dapp brought the whole Ethereum blockchain to its knees. The network was congested, with endless waiting times for transaction confirmation and high transaction fees. Porting to Viction would seem a good idea for the cute kitties.

Viction Mainnet can process 2,000 TPS, which is 100x faster than the Ethereum blockchain, and for a fraction of the cost.

In this tutorial, we will see how to build a Dapp using Solidity and then deploy it to Viction blockchain.

Note: Because deploying a smart contract on Mainnet is much similar to Testnet, the differences are just the configuration information, this document will explicitly mention the differences where possible.
