    balance = await client.eth_getBalance("0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000")


greeter_code = """
contract Greeter is Mortal {
    /* Define variable greeting of the type string */
    string greeting;

    /* This runs when the contract is executed */
    function Greeter(string _greeting) public {
        greeting = _greeting;

    function greet() constant returns (string) {
        return greeting;

# NOTE: example requires `solc` to be installed, and private_key must be the private key to an
# account on the ethereum node pointed to by JsonRPCClient that has funds to deploy the contract
private_key = os.urandom(32)
async def example_contract_deployment():
    client = JsonRPCClient("http://localhost:8485")
    greeter = await Contract(client, greeter_code).set_signer(private_key).deploy("Hello World")
