In this book, you’ll learn about:

  1. Blockchain Basics

    You’ve heard the hype around Bitcoin, NFTs, and crypto mining. But how does the underlying blockchain technology work? Understand the fundamentals of the distributed ledger, and learn how to create and manage your own blockchain.

  2. Application Development

    Master smart contracts, from programming with Solidity to testing, debugging, deployment, and beyond. Develop decentralized applications (dApps) and expand them into a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) by implementing a frontend with Ether.js.

  3. Tips from the Experts

    Follow guidance from experienced blockchain programmers. Use commented code examples as templates for your projects to get started building your own blockchain and smart contracts in the real world.

Highlights include:

  • Blockchain basics and creation
  • Smart contracts and dApps
  • Development with Solidity
  • Testing, debugging, and security
  • Web APIs
  • Peer-to-peer frameworks
  • Accounts and balances
  • Transaction and block verification
  • Gas optimization
  • Decentralized finance (DeFi)
  • Non-fungible tokens (NFTs)
  • Yul contracts

Prof. Dr. Tobias Fertig has worked as a smart contract developer and researcher since 2015. He has been enthusiastic about Ethereum since its beginning and has taught programming, software engineering, and distributed systems for several years.

Andreas Schütz studied computer science and has been enthusiastic about blockchain technology for more than ten years.
