Course Details

Overview

The Introduction to Blockchain and Ethereum course begins by explaining Bitcoin, Altcoins, and Ethereum, followed by taking you through distributed programming using the Solidity language on the Ethereum blockchain.

In this course, you will learn how to build distributed applications that resolve data ownership issues when working with transactions between multiple parties. Blockchain applications provide a single-shared ledger to eliminate trust issues involving multiple stakeholders. With the help of Introduction to Blockchain and Ethereum, you’ll learn how to create distributed blockchain applications which do not depend on a central server or datacenter.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to write, compile, and deploy your own smart contracts to the Ethereum blockchain.
