Blockchain By Example: Decentralized applications using Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Hyperledger
Bellaj Badr, Richard Horrocks, Xun (Brian) Wu
Dive into working mechanics of the decentralized blockchain applications to build your own scalable dapps.
- A go-to guide which will help you know everything about Blockchain ecosystem and their related terminologies
- Practical approach and easy to follow examples to implement smart contracts, wallet, consensus protocols and other principles in your applications
- Clear blueprint to design and develop your efficient applications using Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Hyperledger
The blockchain is a revolution promising a new world without middlemen. Technically, it is an immutable and tamper-proof distributed ledger of all transactions across a peer-to-peer network. Blockchain technology created the backbone of a new type of internet based on trust, disintermediation, and decentralization.
Throughout the book, we will walk you through a detailed step-by-step process using solidity to build three blockchain projects with different complexity levels and hurdles. This book will provide you with all the relevant concepts related to cryptocurrencies, smart contracts, and blockchain in order to build your own decentralized applications. Each project will teach you just enough about blockchain to be productive right away. We will cover the different set of projects such as Bitcoin Payment System, Supply Chain on Hyperledger, and Tontine Bank Dapp using Ethereum. We will cover major challenges that are associated with Blockchain ecosystems such as scalability, integration, distributed file management and more.
By the end of this book, you will not only be able to tackle the common issues in the blockchain ecosystem but also design and build reliable, scalable distributed systems.
