Oracle Blockchain Quick Start Guide

By: Vivek Acharya, Anand Eswararao Yerrapati, Nimesh Prakash

Overview of this book

Hyperledger Fabric empowers enterprises to scale out in an unprecedented way, allowing organizations to build and manage blockchain business networks. This quick start guide systematically takes you through distributed ledger technology, blockchain, and Hyperledger Fabric while also helping you understand the significance of Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS). The book starts by explaining the blockchain and Hyperledger Fabric architectures. You'll then get to grips with the comprehensive five-step design strategy - explore, engage, experiment, experience, and in?uence. Next, you'll cover permissioned distributed autonomous organizations (pDAOs), along with the equation to quantify a blockchain solution for a given use case. As you progress, you'll learn how to model your blockchain business network by defining its assets, participants, transactions, and permissions with the help of examples. In the concluding chapters, you'll build on your knowledge as you explore Oracle Blockchain Platform (OBP) in depth and learn how to translate network topology on OBP. By the end of this book, you will be well-versed with OBP and have developed the skills required for infrastructure setup, access control, adding chaincode to a business network, and exposing chaincode to a DApp using REST configuration.

Features and components of OBP

In this section, we will see how an Oracle blockchain instance console looks and examine its features. If you create the blockchain instance using the OBP SDK or through Oracle Cloud, the console of an OBP instance will be the same, as shown in the following screenshot:

OBP instance dashboard

The console has multiple tabs, and we will explore each of them in the following sections.


This is the first tab, which shows the summary of the following:

  • The number of channels the instance has created or is part of
  • The number of peers the instance is using
  • The number of chain codes deployed and running on the instance
  • Activities of channels, such as the number of blocks created and number...
