Key Features
  • Plan, design, and create a full-fledged private decentralized application using Hyperledger services
  • Master the ins and outs of the Hyperledger network using real-world examples
  • Packed with problem-solution-based recipes to tackle pain areas in the blockchain development cycle
Book Description

Hyperledger is an open-source project and creates private blockchain applications for a range of domains. This book will be your desk reference as you explore common and not-so-common challenges faced while building blockchain networks using Hyperledger services.

We'll work through all Hyperledger platform modules to understand their services and features and build end-to-end blockchain applications using various frameworks and tools supported by Hyperledger. This book's independent, recipe-based approach (packed with real-world examples) will familiarize you with the blockchain development cycle. From modeling a business network to integrating with various tools, you will cover it all. We'll cover common and not-so-common challenges faced in the blockchain life cycle. Later, we'll delve into how we can interact with the Hyperledger Fabric blockchain, covering all the principles you need to master, such as chaincode, smart contracts, and much more. We'll also address the scalability and security issues currently faced in blockchain development.

By the end of this book, you will be able to implement each recipe to plan, design, and create a full-fledged, private, decentralized application to meet organizational needs.

What you will learn
  • Create the most popular permissioned blockchain network with Fabric and Composer
  • Build permissioned and permission-less blockchains using Sawtooth
  • Utilize built-in Iroha asset/account management with role-based permissions
  • Implement and run Ethereum smart contracts with Burrow
  • Get to grips with security and scalability in Hyperledger
  • Explore and view blockchain data using Hyperledger Explorer
  • Produce reports containing performance indicators and benchmarks using Caliper
