Blockchain Tutorial for Beginners

Blockchain has become one of the most sought-after skills in the tech landscape. According to a 2018 PwC survey, around 84% of the respondents said they were using blockchain in some way. Lets dig deeper into what is blockchain exactly.
What is Blockchain? 
We can define blockchain as a chain of blocks containing data. Blockchain timestamps digital documents so it is impossible to tamper with them in any way. The goal of blockchain is to solve the problem of keeping dual records without requiring a central server.

Blockchain Use Cases 
Bookkeeping and Record-Keeping 
Every industry has to perform bookkeeping and store records. Blockchain offers a highly secure way of bookkeeping and record-keeping, ensuring that unwanted parties and malicious people can’t access them. 

Voting 
To prevent voting fraud, governments use blockchain technology for issuing voter IDs and vote recording. Blockchain provides a highly secure solution for storing data and making changes to the data stored in the blockchain is near impossible. 

Self-Driving Cars 
Apart from using AI and machine learning, self-driving cars would utilize blockchain technology to keep their data secure from unwanted parties. Robotics and IoT through blockchain, can create a decentralized network of drones and robots boosting safety.

It is an Ethereum node implementation built using the Go programming language. It is available in the three interfaces; JSON-RPC server, command-line, and interactive console. Furthermore Geth can be leveraged for Blockchain development on all three major operating systems – Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Mist 
It is the official Ethereum wallet developed by the designers of Ethereum. When it comes to Ethereum, before you can start utilizing the platform, you must have a designated place where you can store your Ether tokens and also execute your smart contracts. It is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
