Ethereum Smart Contract Development  

Overview

This learning program is to investigate the power Ethereum, that’s a public blockchain-based distributed computing platform featuring smart contract functionality.

In this program you’ll learn about hash functions, Merkle Trees, forking, mining and much more. Then you’ll learn about Ethereum and smart contracts, and we’ll cover Ethereum virtual machines (EVM) in detail.

You’ll also learn how to develop your own cryptocurrency from scratch to understand the business behind ICO. Further on, you’ll get to know the key concepts of the Solidity programming language. Enabling you to build decentralized blockchain-based applications. We’ll also look at enterprise use cases, where you’ll build decentralised blockchain based applications.

 

This qualification is designed to:

  • How to build your own smart contracts and cryptocurrencies.
  • Understanding the Solidity language.
  • How crypto currencies could influence the world.
