Cardano is the fifth largest blockchain in the world, with over 1M transactions made per second. Despite the rise and fall of blockchains like Terra (LUNA), Cardano has maintained its significant role in the blockchain ecosystem. As a developer, it’s key for your tool set to include varied blockchain languages including Solidity, Move, Flow and most importantly, Plutus, the major blockchain language for the Cardano ecosystem.

In this blog, we will provide a 1-click overview on how to integrate Mazzuma GPT to build on Cardano, a leading blockchain platform for smart contracts. Specifically, we will dive into the process of building your first Plutus smart contract using MazzumaGPT. We'll focus on a practical example—the Math Bounty Contract on Cardano—where participants can solve a math puzzle to claim a locked bounty. Let's get started!

Math Bounty Contract on Cardano: 

The Math Bounty Contract is a simple smart contract example that demonstrates the power of Cardano and Plutus. Here's how it works:

  • Users lock their ADA funds under the contract, providing a target number as the result of squaring.
  • The target number is stored in the script Datum of the locked output UTXO.
  • Participants attempt to solve the math puzzle by submitting a transaction with their answer for 'x' as the Redeemer.
  • If their answer is correct, they can spend the locked bounty UTXO and claim the funds within it.

WWhy is it important to build? There are two reasons for this:

  • Use of Script Datum: In the Math Bounty Contract, the target number is stored in the script Datum of the locked output UTXO. This concept introduces developers to the concept of using data within the script to create conditions and constraints for smart contract execution. Understanding Script Datum is crucial for building complex and secure smart contracts on Cardano.
  • Incentivised Participation Mechanisms: Participants who solve the math puzzle correctly are rewarded by being able to spend the locked bounty UTXO and claim the funds within it. This incentivizes engagement and participation in the Cardano network, fostering a vibrant and active community of users and developers.

Generating Using 

First, developers need to sign in to A valid phone number and email address is required for you to sign in. As a first-time user, you are eligible to receive up to USD$10 worth of credits onto the platform for free in the beginning.  

After being redirected to the homepage you will need to enter your prompt, which has a limitation of 500 characters. Many prompt engineering techniques exist online to make sure that the AI generates code accurately for you, for now try it out with our test example: “Generate a Plutus smart contract which locks deposited funds under a math bounty. The user who locks their ADA under this contract provides a target which is the number that must be the number that must be the result of this squirting.”

Revealing the Prompt Outputs

Just like that, in the few seconds the AI is able to generate the code. First, the UTXO smart contract is building the import statements so that you can deploy this smart contract with all relevant dependencies. For best results, compare directly with the Github where this test Plutus smart contract was stored by the Cardano Github.
