How can I create a blockchain from scratch?by Sonali Mishra Human Resource Executive
Blockchain technology was announced initially as “A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” by Satoshi Nakamoto in the year 2008. It is a list of transaction records known as blocks and linked together by using cryptography. In other words, blockchain is a distributed ledger and each block consists of cryptographic hash of the previous block, transaction data, and a timestamp.
Eight Steps to Make Blockchain from Scrap
Identify the Right Use-Case
Look for the suitable use-case complementing your business sense and needs. Get your data authenticated and verified by including encryption, and digital signatures. Use, smart asset management to include payment, exchange, escrow, issuance, and retirement payment options.
Identify the Right Consensus Mechanism
Once, you have opted for use-case, you need to choose the right Consensus Mechanism. Over the years, there have been multiple distributed ledger systems you can choose like Byzantine fault tolerant, Proof of stake, Round Robin, Federated consensus, and Derived PBFT.
Choose the Suitable Platform
Fortunately, there are many free of cost and independent blockchain platforms to use such as Chain Core, BigChainDB, Eris:db, Domus Tower Blockchain, Stellar, Symbiont Assembly, Hyperledger Sawtooth Lake, and Quorum.
Designing the Nodes
Blockchain solutions are distinguished into two- Permissioned (Government run land registry) and Permission-less (Where everyone can be a miner such as Bitcoin). The solutions can be private, public, and hybrid. Meanwhile, in this stage decide whether the nodes will access on premise, cloud or both. You also need to opt for base operating systems such as Debian, CentOS, Windows, Ubuntu, and Red Hat.
Create the Blockchain Illustration
Multiple blockchain platforms require vigilant and planned configuration that must include permissions, asset re-issuance, asset issuance, key management, native assets, address formats, and block signatures.
Some blockchain has inbuilt APIs and some don’t. Your API must generate key pairs, and address, perform audit, authenticate data, smart asset lifecycle management and data storage and retrieval.
Create the Admin and User Interface
Infusing Future Tech
By adding biometrics, bots, artificial intelligence, cloud, data analytics, machine learning and cognitive services you can accentuate your blockchain technology.
