The following is a simple example of a contract which implements a counter. Both the initialize() and increment() functions return the currently set value.

forc init --template counter my_counter_project

The use of storage here is new and is still being stabilized, please see the Subcurrency example for writing storage manually.


abi TestContract {
    fn initialize_counter(value: u64) -> u64;
    fn increment_counter(amount: u64) -> u64;

storage {
    counter: u64,

impl TestContract for Contract {
    fn initialize_counter(value: u64) -> u64 {
        storage.counter = value;

    fn increment_counter(amount: u64) -> u64 {
        let incremented = storage.counter + amount;
        storage.counter = incremented;
