Deploy a Smart Contract

Please note, you should use PETERSBURG EVM version when deploying on CIC Chain

CIC utilizes the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) in the backend. Smart contracts are written in Solidity and they can function on CIC blockchain as they do on Ethereum.

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

After the contract is deployed, it will be available to all users of the CIC network. Smart contracts have a Phantom address like other accounts.


  • Bytecode (compiled code) of your smart contract

  • CIC for gas costs

  • Deployment script/plugin

  • Access to an CIC node, either by running your own node or API access to a node.

Additional resources


  • Truffle: Development environment, testing framework and asset pipeline for blockchains using the EVM

  • Remix: IDE that’s used to write, compile, debug & deploy Solidity code ll in your browser.

  • Solidity: Solidity is an object-oriented, high-level language for implementing smart contracts.

  • OpenZeppelin: OpenZeppelin Contracts helps you minimize risk by using battle-tested libraries of smart contracts for Ethereum and other blockchains.
