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.

This book was created in the belief that, together, we will positively contribute to the evolution of blockchain technologies and continually inspire others to share their experiences and further influence others to do so. In this book, we will do the following:

  • Explore distributed ledger technology; blockchain, its components, features, qualifiers, and architecture; and demystify the prominence of Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS)
  • Engage in modeling a blockchain-based business network and gain exposure to developing business networks based on Hyperledger Fabric (HLF), and appraise blockchain and HLF use cases and their potential effects and integration
  • Experiment with Oracle Blockchain Platform (OBP) to utilize the practicality of translating network topology to OBP
  • Experience the ease and richness of assimilating smartness in a business network by learning the full life cycle of chaincode, from development to updates; from installing, initiating, and testing to versioning; and finally, from integration to insight
