Create Your First Simple dApp On ethereum

In this article, we are going to build a simple CRUD decentralized application on the Ethereum blockchain.
Github repo


  • 1.Basic understanding of solidity or general programming. Solidity Doc to read
  • 2.Metamask extension on chrome or Firefox. (To connect with web3)
  • 3.Basic understanding of Web3.
  • 4.Get INFURA KEY Infura. create account and project
  • 5.Wallet on Metamask with some ether(coins)for a Ropsten network. You can get free testnet ether You can go to, or go to Tools > Use Testnet Faucet in the left-hand side menu on
  • 6.Nodejs or Typescript understanding.

Smart Contract Deployment

  • This is a simple curd smart contract, which deals with students’ data.
  • Let’s deploy the contract in a remix environment
  • First, navigate to address
  • Add new curd.sol file and copy-paste the code from the repository.
  • create account in metamask wallet and connect to Ropsten.
  • Compile code using remix ide 3rd button solidity compiler
  • From the left side click on the 4th deploy and run button deployment window will appear.

Remix environment

  • Enter your password in metamask and you will get connected with the remix environment.
  • You can see your metamask wallet address on a remix account.
  • Select ropsten test-network in metamask extension and your wallet should looklike this.

  • Now the metamask prompt will appear as follows and will ask you to confirm the transaction.

  • Now you can see the debug logs in the remix environment that the contract is creating and after successful deployment, the transaction log will appear as follows.

Remix environment

  • Let’s verify contract deployment on ropsten explore by navigating to this address
  • Copy and paste the transaction hash from the log to the etherscan website. Deploy doc

contract remix ide

  • In the above picture, we can see who created the transaction, It should match with your metamask wallet address.
  • Now our contract is ready we can test the all functions of the contract.

Contract deploy

Build the decentralized application (dAPP)

  • First, create an account on
  • Then create a project and navigate to the project settings.

Infura key website

  • Select the endpoint as a Ropsten. Note: We have deployed our contract on ropsten netwrok that why we are selecting Ropstenendpoint.
  • Copy the project id and paste it into INFURA_KEY in the dapp.js
  • Copy your metamask wallet address and paste it into account in the dapp.js
  • Export metamask private key and paste it into privateKey in the dapp.js.

Contract abi key
*Paste the copied ABI array in the

import Web3 from 'web3';
import Common, { Chain } from '@ethereumjs/common'
import { Transaction } from '@ethereumjs/tx'
// INFURA_KEY // Replace your infura-key
const web3 = new Web3('wss://' + process.env.INFURA_KEY);
const account = ''; // Replace wallet address with metamask wallet address

const contract_Address = ""; //replace deployed contract address
const abi: any[] =[];
const chck = web3.utils.toChecksumAddress(contract_Address)
const contract = new web3.eth.Contract(abi, contract_Address); // Instantiating smart contract`

Run the test dAPP

  • Install dependencies using the below command. npm install
  • Run the application using the following command npx ts-node src/index.ts
  • After executing the application student will get created on the blockchain and we will get a receipt as follows
  from: '0x8aeaexxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx',
  gasUsed: 101374,
  logs: [],
  logsBloom: '0x00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000',
  status: true,  to: '0x83977bf3e9xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx',  transactionHash: '0x37169068b6606193XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX', 
   transactionIndex: 25, 
    type: '0x0'

Comment create function call and enable read function then re-run dapp.

We have seen how to create smart contracts and how to deploy smart contracts on the remix and test-network environment. We learn how to build the dapp using web3js and interact with the ethereum blockchain.
