Deploy an EOS dApp on WAX
WAX is fully compatible with EOS smart contracts and offers free blockchain accounts and cheaper fees. This guide provides an overview of how to deploy your EOS dApps to the WAX mainnet.
To deploy your smart contract to the WAX mainnet, you’ll need to create a WAX Blockchain Account.
Make sure you have enough WAX staked in your account to allocate resources.
If your dApp interacts with blockchain accounts, your customers will also need to create a free, verified WAX Blockchain Account. You can send them to the following link:
A WAX Cloud Wallet Account automatically creates a WAX Blockchain account and allows you to use WaxJS to sign transactions. Refer to WAX Cloud Wallet Quickstart for more information.
If you’d like to test your smart contracts on WAX, you can:
- Complete our Docker Quickstart (recommended) or use the WAX Blockchain Setup to build from source.
- Build your contracts using the WAX Contract Development Toolkit (WAX-CDT).
- Set Up a Local dApp Environment.
- Deploy to the WAX Testnet.
