Build a Dapp on TomoChain

In this guide:

  • Setting up Truffle, the most popular development framework for Ethereum which also works perfectly for TomoChain

  • Creating a Truffle project

  • Creating a TomoChain wallet

  • Requesting free tokens using TomoChain faucet

  • Writing a smart contract

  • Compiling and migrating the smart contract to TomoChain

  • Connecting Metamask to TomoChain Testnet

  • Creating a user interface to interact with the smart contract

Why should developers build Dapps on TomoChain?

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 TomoChain would seem a good idea for the cute kitties.

TomoChain 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 TomoChain 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
