Introduction to Blockchain and Ethereum: Use distributed ledgers to validate digital transactions in a decentralized and trustless manner

Build distributed applications that resolve data ownership issues when working with transactions between multiple parties

Key Features

  • Explore a perfect balance between theories and hands-on activities
  • Discover popular Blockchain use cases such as Bitcoin
  • Create your first smart contract in Solidity for Ethereum

Book Description

Blockchain applications provide a single-shared ledger to eliminate trust issues involving multiple stakeholders. With the help of Introduction to Blockchain and Ethereum, you’ll learn how to create distributed Blockchain applications which do not depend on a central server or datacenter. The course begins by explaining Bitcoin, Altcoins, and Ethereum, followed by taking you through distributed programming using the Solidity language on the Ethereum Blockchain. By the end of this course, you’ll be able to write, compile, and deploy your own smart contracts to the Ethereum Blockchain.

What you will learn

  • Grasp Blockchain concepts such as private and public keys, addresses, wallets, and hashes
  • Send and analyze transactions in the Ethereum Rinkeby test network
  • Compile and deploy your own ERC20-compliant smart contracts and tokens
  • Test your smart contracts using MyEtherWallet
  • Create a distributed web interface for your contract
  • Combine Solidity and JavaScript to create your very own decentralized application

Who this book is for

Introduction to Blockchain and Ethereum is ideal for you if you want to get to grips with Blockchain technology and develop your own distributed applications with smart contracts written in Solidity. Prior exposure to an object-oriented programming language such as JavaScript is needed, as you’ll cover the basics before getting straight to work.
