Charity Raffle dApp

This is a demo dApp built to be deployable on the BlockApps STRATO platform. The app consists of a raffle smart contract and a react user interface. Any user can initiate the creation of a raffle contract. The user determines the number of total tickets, the price per ticket and the perentage to donate to a charity of their chosing, when deploying the smart contract. Various users can purchase these tickets. The raffle is closed and a winner is picked once the total number of participants is reached.

Read the documentation for more information on creating dApps using BlockApps STRATO.


A running STRATO multinode network is required to deploy and run this application. Follow the instructions in the STRATO getting started guide to setup a multi-node network. Additional instructions can be found on our Developer Portal.


The STRATO platform expects a zip archive with the following structure:

├─ contracts/
│   └─ ...all solidity contract files (*.sol)
├─ index.html
├─ ...other ui application files used by index.html
└─ metadata.json

Running the following commands will generate the directory structure and the zip archive under the build folder.

npm install
npm run build

The data in metadata.json is populated from package.json.

This zip archive under build/ can be uploaded directly to STRATO.
