Ricardian Contracts for Solidity
A simple abstract contract for implementing Ricardian contracts as part of a SmartContract.
In this case there is a an offerer, which is initially the address creating the contract.
- The offerer creates a contract like a terms of service and uploads it to IPFS.
- The resulting ipfs hash is added to the contract using the
- At this point the contract is considered active
- Other parties can call the
accept()function providing the same ipfs hash
- This is recorded as an acceptance of the contract by the msg.sender
- The contract author can mark functions as hasAccepted, which means that they are only allowed to be used by parties who have accepted the agreement
Changing the contract
The offerer can change the agreement using the same
To force parties to accept the new agreement, a modifier
hasAcceptedLatest can be used on functions
You need a local ipfs node running at the moment or change code in app.js to point at a public one.
Install truffle and testrpc

In a terminal start testrpc:
In another terminal install the contract and run the server:
truffle deploy truffle serve
