Overview/Description

Possible uses for blockchain technology seem almost limitless—and its potential is indeed impressive. But the complex nature of this transformative tool bears thorough study, as well as the innovative solutions being developed to broaden its usefulness. In this 7-video series, newcomers and experienced users will learn both the strengths and limitations of this widely-publicized technology and the networks that implement it—from the first, widely-popular public Ethereum network to the newer Hyperledger umbrella of technologies, whose more extensive private frameworks may prove to be of even greater benefit to your company. Become familiar with the ways in which blockchains store transaction data and prevent fraud, the essential role of smart contracts, and the versatile frameworks and tools used by Hyperledger to provide better security, strengthen confidentiality, and improve speed with multiple, industry-specific solutions. Along the way, you are introduced to Hyperledger tools, or specialized software used to design, deploy, and maintain blockchains and blockchain networks.
