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.

Translating the network topology onto OBP

This section describes how to create network instances on OBP. As described in the Designing the solution section of Chapter 4, Engage in Business Case on Blockchain Platform, a blockchain network requires the following business entities:

  • Oracle Empire University (OEU) as a founder entity
  • Oracle Red School (ORS) and Certificate Viewer/Verifier (CVs) as participant entities

Creating network stakeholders with OBP instances

The foundational step toward building an OBP solution involves the creation of OBP instances for the stakeholder entities. Perform the following steps in order to create the necessary OBP instances for the use case:

  1. Launch and log in to the OBP provisioning console...
