About this item

Bitcoin is the first application to emerge from the underlying blockchain technology, and others that follow might have more significance. This book shows developers how to take advantage of the decentralization and trustless common knowledge structures of blockchain cryptography to build decentralized applications, or "dapps."

Author Siraj Raval clearly explains what a dapp is, and shows you how to make use of decentralized storage, bandwidth, and computing. You’ll learn how build blockchain-based dapps for providing public, decentralized ledgers of assets such as property, votes, software, health data, and ideas—as suggested by Melanie Swan in her book Bitcoin.

  • Explore dapps in theory and practice—from potential through build
  • Learn about two dapp-building platforms: Ethereum and Satya
  • Understand the security risks and structural dangers of potentially autonomous software
