Blockchain Quick Start Guide: Learn quick and effective techniques to get up and running with building blockchain including Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric
Blockchain is a technology that powers the development of decentralized applications. This technology allows the construction of a network with no single control that enables participants to make contributions to and receive benefits from the network directly.
This book will give you a thorough overview of blockchain and explain how a blockchain works. You will begin by going through various blockchain consensus mechanisms and cryptographic hash functions. You will then learn the fundamentals of programming in Solidity – the defacto language for developing decentralize, applications in Ethereum. After that, you will set up an Ethereum development environment and develop, package, build, and test campaign-decentralized applications. The book also shows you how to set up Hyperledger composer tools, analyze business scenarios, design business models, and write a chain code. Finally, you will get a glimpse of how blockchain is actually used in different real-world domains.
- Understand how blockchain hashing works
