Blockchain development is entering a period of explosive growth, as real applications gain traction throughout multiple industries, and cryptocurrencies earn greater acceptance throughout the traditional financial sector. Now, for the first time, there’s a comprehensive guide to developing these solutions with today’s most advanced blockchain programming models and architectures.
Building on his pioneering experience, Michael Yuan introduces today’s most popular blockchain development paradigm, Ethereum Smart Contract programming. Yuan guides you through working with Dapps, ERC20 tokens, programming for ICOs, and more. Next, he introduces next-generation Tendermint / Cosmos programming models and software architectures that overcome key limitations of previous blockchain environments, reducing congestion and enabling unprecedented scalability. Finally, he introduces potential blockchain applications in key sectors, including Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Finance, Exchanges, and Healthcare.
