Interview series — Part 2

Blockchain glossary: Lesson No.2 – Asking the right questions

Can blockchain transform the world? Before we can answer this question, we need to understand what this technology can and can’t do, what it is and what it isn’t. Therefore, we have to go back to basics and explore the fundamentals in order to eliminate all misconceptions about blockchain. This series is meant to clear the air by answering the most fundamental questions.

Blockchain glossary: Lesson No.1 – Blockchain ≠ distributed ledger technology

Can blockchain transform the world? Before we can answer this question, we need to understand what this technology can and can’t do, what it is and what it isn’t. Therefore, we have to go back to basics and explore the fundamentals in order to eliminate all misconceptions about blockchain. This series is meant to clear the air by answering the most fundamental questions.

The wonders of decentralized web

Your data is “for sale” – And this is how you get it back

Our presence on the internet is in the form of data. Everything is just data. But who owns this data? How is this data stored? What happens to our data when we agree to “share” it? In this article, Rong Chen discusses the nature of decentralized web and how we can create it.

An evaluation of the dApps ecosystem

Building full-stack dApps today

Decentralized applications (also called “dApps”) are quickly growing in popularity, despite the frequent challenges that come with early-stage technologies. What is the current state of building dApps? Do dApps scale? Are they worthwhile to build? What are some common development considerations? Let’s evaluate the current maturity of this rapidly evolving ecosystem.

Tradeoffs developers need to balance when building a dApp

The rise of blockchain dApps

DApps built on blockchain infrastructure are designed to hand control of data back to the users. However, it’s important for developers to remember that blockchain has some additional pain points that must be considered. Uriel Peled explains why it’s important to choose a foundation that will enable the dApp to evolve and sums up the dos and don’ts of decentralized applications.

Interview with Christopher Ferris, IBM Distinguished Engineer

“Hyperledger Fabric is now more accessible to developers who have already started working with Ethereum & its associated tools”

Hyperledger Fabric now supports Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) bytecode smart contracts. This popular blockchain framework is now more accessible to developers who have already started working with Ethereum and its associated tools. We talked to Christopher Ferris, IBM Distinguished Engineer about the implications of this step, what it means for Ethereum and blockchain developers & more.

Embark on your smart contract journey

Make sure your blockchain smart contracts are secure: OpenZeppelin 2.0 soars high

OpenZeppelin 2.0 is here, and this framework will help reduce your vulnerabilities. What’s new in this release? If you’re new to the world of building smart contracts or a seasoned veteran, where should you go from here? Time to see what’s under the hood in this new release (while we try very hard not to make Led Zeppelin references).

How to achieve it without sacrificing security and efficiency

Blockchain scalability for supply chains

How can we achieve a scalable blockchain-based supply chain solution without sacrificing security and efficiency? You’ll need a consensus algorithm that can quickly validate the transactions being made. In this article, Dr. Vlad Trifa explains why (and how!) a blockchain-based network designed to support global supply chains must be flexible, reliable, secure, and above all, scalable.
