By building your own blockchain, you will learn how blockchian technology works under-the-hood, how decentralized blockchain networks function, how the code behind these technologies work, and why blockchain is such a secure and valuable technology.
The blockchain that you build in this course will have all of the following features:
- A proof of work algorithm to secure the network.
- Hashing algorithms to secure the data within the blockchain.
- The ability to mine (create) new blocks that contain data.
- The ability to create transactions and store them in blocks.
- An API/server that will be used to interact with the blockchain from the internet.
- It will be hosted on a decentralized blockchain network.
- A consensus algorithms to verify that the network nodes have valid data and are synchronized.
- A broadcasting system to keep the data in the blockchain network synchronized.
- Many other awesome features!…
When you have completed this course you will have built out your own blockchainprototype in code.
You will have a thorough understanding of how blockchain technology actually works and why this technology is so secure and valuable.
You will also have a deep understanding of how decentralized blockchain networks function and why decentralization is such an important feature for securing the blockchain.
The whole process of storing, securing, and validating data/transactions on the blockchain will become very clear.
