Smart Contracts on NEAR​

This is how a smart contract written in Rust and JavaScript using the NEAR SDK looks like:

```js
@NearBindgen({})
class HelloNear {
greeting: string = 'Hello';

@view({}) // This method is read-only and can be called for free
get_greeting(): string {
return this.greeting;
}

@call({}) // This method changes the state, for which it cost gas
set_greeting({ greeting }: { greeting: string }): void {
near.log(`Saving greeting ${greeting}`);
this.greeting = greeting;
}
}

```
