Building Blockchain Projects

By: Narayan Prusty

Overview of this book

Blockchain is a decentralized ledger that maintains a continuously growing list of data records that are secured from tampering and revision. Every user is allowed to connect to the network, send new transactions to it, verify transactions, and create new blocks, making it permission-less. This book will teach you what blockchain is, how it maintains data integrity, and how to create real-world blockchain projects using Ethereum. With interesting real-world projects, you will learn how to write smart contracts which run exactly as programmed without any chance of fraud, censorship, or third-party interference, and build end-to-e applications for blockchain. You will learn about concepts such as cryptography in cryptocurrencies, ether security, mining, smart contracts, solidity, and more. You will also learn about web sockets, various API services for Ethereum, and much more. The blockchain is the main technical innovation of bitcoin, where it serves as the public ledger for bitcoin transactions.

Overall in this chapter, we learned how to use parity and how aura works and some techniques to achieve permissioning and privacy in parity. Now you must be confident enough to at least build a proof-of-concept for a consortium using blockchain. Now you can go ahead and explore other solutions, such as Hyperledger 1.0 and quorum for building consortium blockchains. Currently, Ethereum is officially working on making more suitable for consortiums; therefore, keep a close eye on various blockchain information sources to learn about anything new that comes in the market.
