Deploy a smart contract

Smart contracts written in Solidity can function on HPB as they do on Ethereum. This is because HPB's backend uses Ethereum's Virtual Machine (EVM).

To deploy a smart contract, you send an HPB transaction containing your bytecode without specifying any recipients.

After the contract is deployed, it will be available to all users of the HPB network.

Smart contracts have an HPB address like other accounts.


  • Bytecode (compiled code of your smart contract)

  • HPB for gas costs

  • Deployment script/plugin

  • Access to an HPB node, either by running your own node or API access to HPBNODE
