BLOCKCHAIN FOR NEWBIES
Bitcoin can’t speak the language of Ethereum and vice versa. This means we can’t spend bitcoin on the Ethereum network, nor can we make use of Ethereum’s smart contracts on the Bitcoin network. As blockchains march toward the future in increasing numbers, the need for interoperability grows.
When talking about Why Crypto Matters and where The Big Opportunity is, people often begin from different assumptions and starting points, and, more importantly, have a different end game in mind, which leads to confusion: investors are unclear what thesis they’re applying to the market, newcomers struggle to follow along, and maximalists spend endless energy trying to convince one group to think like the other, without fully appreciating where they differ (or align!) on first principles.
The year 2018 was pretty rough for the cryptocurrency industry characterized by price crash and immense volatility. The year ended with the biggest crash in the history of the industry with the lead cryptocurrency Bitcoin losing ~80% of its value in the fourth quarter of the year.
However, in the face of the crash, some of the cryptocurrencies have performed relatively well. In this article, we discuss these top performing assets with respect to the others.
In the first part, we learned the basics of the Python. We learned how if-elif-else and loops work in the system. We have basically learned how to do simple code on Python. In this part, we are going to start creating our blockchain.
Recently, while writing some frontend tooling for dapps (stay tuned), I encountered the need to quickly test that my library would work with real Solidity contracts.
As we know, the Solidity programming language supports multiple inheritance. This is very powerful yet it can also be confusing: the more complexity you introduce to your distributed applications (dApps) through multiple inheritance, the greater your application’s attack surface is. Not only that, if you have a big complicated dApp, it can be difficult to track all of the relationships between your smart contracts. It’s therefore important to thoroughly document how your dApp works and the interrelationships between its smart contracts. Inheritance trees are an effective way to do this.
