A Developer's Guide to Ethereum


Blockchain technology has certainly been hyped over the past few years, but when you strip all of that away, what can actually do with it? This book is a collection of articles that provide an introduction to Ethereum, an open source platform that's based based on blockchain. It enables developers to build and deploy decentralized applications that can be relied on to work without fraud, censorship or interference from third parties.

We start off by explaining what blockchain is and how it works, and also look at some potential practical applications for blockchain technology. We then move on to looking at the Ethereum platform specifically. Far more than just a cryptocurrency or smart contracts platform, Ethereum is becoming an entire ecosystem for building decentralized applications.
