Sonic 😊 vignesh Blockchain Technology is just a database structure. I think before you go into it, it's important to know why you think that database structure is better than other database structures (so compare to SQL, NoSQL, or distributed ledger technologies like Hyperledger), then figure out if what you believe about it is true. There's a lot of hype in the industry, but developers are in the best position to know how it actually works. Just like in other scenarios, pick the goal before you pick the tool - make sure the tech aligns with your use case. If you want to work with smart contracts, I recommend a light history lesson. Read the Bitcoin white paper (9 pages) and the Ethereum white paper (36 pages) and understand the difference between the two. The Solidity documentation is pretty friendly, but be on the lookout for better options (Vyper, Scilla, etc. that aren't really production-ready yet, but potentially better alternatives). For front end, there's Web3. I hope this helps! 🙂


Janning⭐ , any suggestions?


Understanding blockchain itself, and how its a ledger. It's more of an algorithm than a technology imo. But I suppose algorithms can be technology.
