Mappings and Structs

So far we have only used mappings and simple data types. So, we can now map addresses to booleans, or uint to addresses or any combination of that.

But what if you want to define something a bit more complex?

Let's say you work on the latest DeFi Project and your project does deposits and withdrawals. You not only want to save the amount that was deposited, but also by whom and possibly some more information.

You could define several mappings for this using simple data types. But there is also another way: Structs.

With structs you can define your own Datatype.
