The Internet plays a vital role in core business, and financial aspects of the digital economy are still centralized, with the help of centralized agencies such as banks and tax agencies, to authenticate and settle payments and transactions. These centralized services often are manual, difficult to automate, and represent a bottleneck to facilitating a frictionless digital economy The blockchain technology, a distributed, decentralized, and public ledger, addresses these issues by maintaining records of all transactions on a blockchain network that promises a smart world of automation of complex services and manufacturing processes. A blockchain network is a peer-to-peer network and does not require a central authority or trusted intermediaries to authenticate or settle the transactions. The first generation of blockchain network was coined by Satoshi Nakamoto in his 2008 white paper where the primary application of the blockchain network was the use of electronic cash or cryptocurrency called Bitcoin. The second-generation blockchain network called Ethereum was introduced in 2013. Ethereum allows a single programmable blockchain network to be used for developing different types of applications where each application takes the form of a smart contract which is implemented in a high-level language and deployed on the blockchain network.


This FDP will introduce fundamentals of Blockchain technology and implementations of Blockchain technology with their real time applications. FDP cover complete understanding of Blockchain concepts with theory and hands on session. In this FDP participants will learn Block chain based crypto currency Implementation, Block chain based smart contract, and also Learn about how to deploy a business network using Hyper ledger Compose.
