The most requested topic for a course I’ve had so far is to build a smart contract blockchain and cryptocurrency. And for plenty of reasons:
Smart contracts are the main feature behind Ethereum, which is the second most valuable cryptocurrency.
Learning smart contracts is a natural next step after learning about blockchains. A blockchain is a decentralized ledger. A smart contract blockchain is a decentralized computer.
A smart contract blockchain can support decentralized applications. This opens the door to a wide variety of solutions.
Based on these points and more it would definitely be a valuable learning experience to try building a smart contract blockchain and cryptocurrency like Ethereum.
So it can be quite surprising to discover that existing tutorials are challenging to find. Sure, there’s the Ethereum documentation. But this information is better understood when you’re pretty knowledgeable about blockchains already. Likewise, other resources you find, like articles and videos, mostly focus on aspects of a completed Ethereum system. They don’t take you through the process of completely building a smart contract blockchain and cryptocurrency.
However, it’s understandable. A complete system like Ethereum is quite complex. It uses many advanced data structures and technologies. And untangling the interaction between its many components can feel like navigating through a labyrinth.
