Mastering Ethereum: An expert guide to implementing fast, secure, and scalable decentralized applications that work with thousands of users in real time
Ethereum is one of the commonly used platforms for building blockchain applications. It’s a decentralized platform for applications that can run exactly as programmed without being affected by fraud, censorship, or third-party interference.
This book will give you a deep understanding of how blockchain works so that you can discover the entire ecosystem, core components, and its implementations. You will get started by understanding how to configure and work with various Ethereum protocols for developing dApps. Next, you will learn to code and create powerful smart contracts that scale with Solidity and Vyper. You will then explore the building blocks of the dApps architecture, and gain insights on how to create your own dApp through a variety of real-world examples. The book will even guide you on how to deploy your dApps on multiple Ethereum instances with the required best practices and techniques. The next few chapters will delve into advanced topics such as, building advanced smart contracts and multi-page frontends using Ethereum blockchain. You will also focus on implementing machine learning techniques to build decentralized autonomous applications, in addition to covering several use cases across a variety of domains such as, social media and e-commerce.
- Apply scalability solutions on dApps with Plasma and state channels
- Understand the important metrics of blockchain for analyzing and determining its state
- Develop a decentralized web application using React.js and Node.js
- Create oracles with Node.js to provide external data to smart contracts
- Get to grips with using Etherscan and block explorers for various transactions
- Explore web3.js, Solidity, and Vyper for dApps communication
- Deploy apps with multiple Ethereum instances including TestRPC, private chain, test chain, and mainnet
By the end of this Mastering Ethereum book, you will have the expertise you need to build decentralized autonomous applications confidently.
