A constant is a global value that cannot be changed. The following snippet defines a global constant named
tez equal to 10 tez:
constant price : tez = 10tz
The following defines a
string typed constant named
constant msg : string = "Hello world"
Note that constant values are not transcoded to contract storage: they may be seen as convenient aliases when writing contract's code.
A variable is a global value that can be changed. The following snippet defines 2 global variables named
buyer typed address equal to a (here random) addresses:
variable seller : address = @tz1KksC8RvjUWAbXYJuNrUbontHGor25Cztkvariable buyer : address = @tz1KUbontHGor25CztkksC8RvjUWAbXYJuNr
