Description

Develop your own blockchain and decentralized network using the JavaScript programming language.

In this course, you will learn how to build your own blockchain and decentralized blockchain network by using the JavaScript programming language. By developing your own blockchain, you will discover the working of blockchain technology and how decentralized blockchain networks function. In addition to this, you’ll get to grips with how the code behind these technologies works, along with exploring why blockchain is a secure and valuable technology. As you progress, this course will help you understand why decentralization is an important feature for securing the blockchain. To build on your knowledge, you’ll get up to speed with the whole process of storing, securing, and validating data/transactions on the blockchain. The course covers ES6 code to ensure that you grasp the fundamental concepts effectively. By the end of this course, you will have built your own blockchain prototype in code. All codes and supporting files are available at-
