Exception Handling: Require, Assert and Revert in Solidity

In this Lab you will learn more about Exception handling. At the end of the Lab I want you to be fully aware of when and how to use require, assert and revert.

How these behave with transactions and also between Smart Contracts.

What You Know At The End Of The Lab

πŸ”Ž How to validate user input with require

πŸ”ͺ How to validate invariants with assert

πŸ•΅οΈ Observe Transactions and understand the reason why they are failing

Prerequisites - You need:

  2. An Internet connection

  3. About 60 Minutes of your precious time βŒ›
