  • How to deploy your Decentralized Application on 4EVERLAND
    4 projects | | 12 Apr 2022
    In this article, we will cover a tutorial on how to build and deploy your decentralized Application on 4everland. For this case, we will be using react js and 4everland will be used to manage our front-end. The Application will use the Ethereum network and it will be written in Reach, a dApp programming language that is simple to learn and has a Javascript syntax.

    If you want to look at some examples of smart contracts implemented in a higher level language, there's reach, which is Js based, which compiles to various chain vms including avm. Their GitHub has numerous example smart contracts that I found useful. Their docs & walkthroughs are also good to get you started thinking the right way. You may even consider it for implementation if you're comfortable with JS. It also provides compile time assertions that double check your code for things like "value X should only be visible to participant A" which I found great as a concept.

  • Learn Blockchain Development: How to Build Your First DApp on Algorand
    3 projects | | 30 Sep 2021
    While there are many different approaches to building dApps on Algorand, in this post we will focus on getting started using Reach - a free, easy and quick way to get your feet wet in the Algorand ecosystem. One huge benefit of Reach is verification.   Reach provides verification on dApps via compile time and runtime verification of the solution. For more info see the opening paragraph in a tutorial on Using Loop invariants for Verification in Reach.

    You can check the entire example backend program here, and the example frontend here. The frontend can also be written using the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) feature of Reach, in many languages including JavaScript, Go, Python, C# and more, but we’ll take a look at the main part only:

    Agree with the above. I'd also recommend looking into the Reach platform as it makes the whole process super easy (
  • Is "Mastering Ethereum" still the best way to learn Solidity development?
    5 projects | | 1 Jul 2021 is a language I’ve been using that compiles to solidity or teal (algorand). It feels different to writing solidity and is meant to be more code efficient and less error prone. Their pitch is they want to make writing contracts quick for the traditional, web 2, developer.

    Plutus != Haskell, it is significantly simplified version of Haskell. It is a DSL. Besides in Cardano they also have Glow, which is a very nice looking language. For now Glow compiles to EVM but there are working for it to compile to Plutus Core. ( Glow is quite similar to Reach Lang (, which as you may know or not is being adopted for Algorand.

    I am not currently aware of a condensed list that also presents information current state of development. Complementing the links u/estantef shared, there is also the Algorand Asia Accelerator Playlist And here is the Algorand Europe Accelerator Demo Day playlist: I can't add this video to the playlist and videos for the two projects Dopamine and Blockswap Network are missing. Some other projects are Venue One, Opulous, AlgoSwap and so on. Most of the projects are launching in the next few weeks. Some projects run on Algorand but are not decentralized like, Dahai, uncopied and more. Yieldly will hold its IDO on TrustSwap on May 21 and launch next month. Opulous will announce a well-known artist in the next few weeks and also launch soon after. In addition, Balancer will also come to Algorand. The company that also developed the Reach programming language is working on this.
