Blockchain Development for Finance Projects

By: Ishan Roy

Overview of this book

Blockchain technology will continue to play an integral role in the banking and finance sector in the coming years. It will enable enterprises to build transparent and secure business processes. Experts estimate annual savings of up to 20 billion dollars from this technology. This book will help you build financial apps using blockchain, guiding you through enhancing popular products and services in the banking and finance sector. The book starts by explaining the essential concepts of blockchain, and the impact of blockchain technology on the BFSI sector. Next, you'll delve into re-designing existing banking processes and building new financial apps using blockchain. To accomplish this, you'll work through eight blockchain projects. By demonstrating the entire process, the book helps you understand everything from setting up the environment and building frontend portals to system integration and testing apps. You will gain hands-on experience with the Ethereum, Hyperledger Fabric, and Stellar to develop private and public decentralized apps. Finally, you'll learn how to use ancillary platforms and frameworks such as IPFS, Truffle OpenZeppelin, and MetaMask. By the end of this blockchain book, you'll have an in-depth understanding of how to leverage distributed ledgers and smart contracts for financial use cases.

So, finally, we wrap up building our LC workflow. This chapter should help you design more complex smart contracts and give you a good understanding of how to leverage smart contracts as escrows and for designing workflows. While the use case we looked at is a very basic LC, this implementation can be used to build any kind of time- or condition-based escrow between two or more parties and can be used to build very efficient, transparent, and automated business processes. You can try implementing this setup within a private blockchain between organizations and see if you can tweak it to come up with more interesting workflows and use cases.

We started this chapter by looking at how escrows can be devices in the blockchain world, using smart contracts. We charted out a multi-smart contract design for building our application and determined how the contracts would connect...
