Cryptocurrency may have gotten all the buzz last year, but the underlying technology is what we should really be talking about. In this article, JAX London speaker Vinita Rathi explores why Blockchain and distributed ledger technology platforms deserve our attention.
Cypherium aims to be the most secure smart contract platform available. Why should you care? First, it’s the most versatile virtual machine on the market to date, according to co-founder Nate Ren. Second, the Cypherium Virtual Machine supports Java and is compatible with EVM. Let’s have a closer look at this platform and how it compares to other blockchain platforms like Hyperledger.
Our ‘Blockchain development made easy’ series continues with Hyperledger Sawtooth, a modular platform for building, deploying, and running distributed ledgers. What are the advantages and how can developers get started with it? We talked to Kelly Olson, Hyperledger Sawtooth maintainer about what’s under this project’s hood.
Blockchain needs security, the same as any other kind of technology. In this article, Sarah Rothrie explores a brief history of cryptography, how it applies to blockchain, and why hashing is necessary for the integrity of the chain.
Our ‘Blockchain development made easy’ series continues with Hyperledger Iroha, a simple blockchain platform you can use to make trusted, secure, and fast applications. What are the advantages and how can developers get started with it? We talked to Makoto Takemiya, co-founder and co-CEO of Soramitsu about what’s under this project’s hood.
With the blockchain technology being so new and changing so rapidly, there is a shortage of individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement it. This is why The Linux Foundation, the home of the Hyperledger project, has released a series of training courses designed to increase the talent pool. Marta Piekarska and Clyde Seepersad explain why these courses are a great starting point, curated for both nontechnical and technical audiences.
