Blockchain Application Development 101

Blockchain, in its most simplified definition, is a shared ledger for recording the history of transactions that cannot be altered.  A blockchain is a ledger of records arranged in data batches called blocks that use cryptographic validation to link themselves together. Put simply, each block references and identifies the previous block by a hashing function, forming an unbroken chain, hence the name.

But what does all this mean?  Join Glenn Jones, Global Product and R&D Executive with Sweetbridge, Inc, and Synerzip as we explore the following:

  • What are the common characteristics of business problems that lend themselves well for blockchain use?
  • What does appropriate modeling real world business problems on blockchain solution architecture look like?
  • What is the role of various blockchain constructs:
    • Smart contracts
    • Distributed ledger
    • Cryptocurrency?
  • How do you pick the right blockchain technology platform?  Do you use Hyperledger or Ethereum or Nuco or something else?
  • And lastly, understand the “off-chain” vs. “on-chain” development team.
