The combined market cap digital assets is more than $200 billion today. There are two leading cryptocurrencies Bitcoin and Ethereum, with more than $120 billion and $18 billion in market cap, respectively. However, most of the digital assets are sitting ideal, not producing any yield.

Dissecting current standards and proposing possible solutions for fully dynamic access control management in smart contracts Access control is a fundamental element to the security of software infrastructure. Enterprise applications need strict rules on who can do what, depending on…
A deep dive into Reddit's potential Community Point token and crypto wallet that are using Ethereum.
Recap Part three saw the introduction of the last Smart Contract jigsaw piece being put into place, and from there, the beginnings of a rudimentary interface using React and Redux. I’ve added a few cool little features since then and…
Recap In part one I outlined the idea for a Tennis Manager simulation game on the Ethereum Blockchain. I created the ERC721 Token and the TrainableTennisPlayer contract which enables owners to increase their player stats by training or resting. Part…
ENS stands for Ethereum Name Service, which is a decentralized naming service built atop Ethereum.
In part one, I outlined the idea for a Tennis Manager simulation game on the Ethereum Blockchain. I created the ERC721 Token and the TrainableTennisPlayer contract which enables owners to increase their player stats by training or resting. Since that article, I’ve written some unit tests and made a few small changes to those contracts. Events have been added to TrainableTennisPlayer to emit when players are trained or rested. Some utility functions that were initially written in TrainableTennisPlayer have been moved to the TennisPlayerBase.
“Provable”, formerly known as “Oraclize”, is a service known as an ‘oracle’, built specifically to address this problem. An oracle acts as a relay by aggregating data from external sources such as random number generators, price tickers & computational engines. Once the data is collected, the oracle feeds it into a smart contract.
You sure must have heard of Ethreum. It is the second most popular and valuable cryptocurrency after Bitcoin based on market cap.
