5 Possibilities For Blockchain In Education Technology


Imagine if an infrastructure which is available, and everyone can securely process transactional code and access the data that can never be tampered. All the transactions are stored in a form of a block which is very hard to manipulate or tamper once they are stored on a blockchain. This is the behavior of blockchain where you can store the data in the most trustworthy way in the scenarios where there is no trust. Blockchain obviously is not a place where you can store a large amount of data for every transaction. For e.g. you cannot store a lot of images or documents in bulk, but you can for sure store an information that can validate that your documents or images are tampered with or not. Most data stored on a blockchain is focused on transactions and states of objects, rather than the actual objects themselves.

Blockchain Development (Part 2): Programming Smart Contracts using Solidity, Truffle and Test-RPC


Introduction

In my last article on Blockchain Development, we learned about setting up the development environment before we start coding or developing our first smart contract. We installed necessary packages and tools those would be needed for development. In this article, we’ll explore Solidity and develop our first smart contract of “Hello World”.

Blockchain Development (Part 1) – Setting Up Development Environment For Smart Contracts


Introduction

In my last article on Blockchain, we learned about setting up Ethereum Blockchain on Microsoft Azure using Consortium leader. It is time for some development now. Before we move on to Smart Contracts and their development, it’s important for us to set up a development environment as a prerequisite. This article will solely focus on setting up the development environment for Smart Contract development. In the next article, we’ll see what smart contracts are and how we can develop those.

Setting Up Ethereum Blockchain On Azure


Introduction

This article will focus on setting up a custom Ethereum Blockchain on Azure. The article will be less theory and will focus more on the practical implementation of step by step setting up the Ethereum blockchain on Azure and transferring some Ethers between accounts using MetaMask. The article is for the readers who are more into development and have the background of Blockchain, Ethereum and Ether. We’ll cover theory in the next article of understanding Ethereum and Blockchain.
