Blockchain & Cryptocurrencies
Blockchain Technology is mainly evolved from a perspective of decentralized financial system and promoting the cashless economy. The digital ledger where the transactions made in Bitcoin or else another cryptocurrency that are recorded publicly and chronologically. This technology has radically improved supply chain and other transactions network.
The blockchain is considered as the network of computers or else devices which is open to anyone of all which must approve a transaction that has taken place before the recorded in a “chain” of computer code. It is completely about Digital finance which is about saving, depositing and transferring money, accessing credit and insurance and performing digital channels through online banking, mobile phones, cards, computers, tablets etc. There are incredible career opportunities for the all the certified Blockchain Developers to make a career in top notch companies.
As per the reports, the Blockchain Technology market is segmented in various fields such as
- Banking Sector
- Financial Institutes
- Insurance Sectors
- Media and Entertainment Sector
- Government and Public Sector
- Healthcare and Life science sector
- Retail and ECommerce Sector
- Automotive Sector

Project 1 : Securing the Supply Chain System
Industry – Logistics
Problem Statement – To see there are no loopholes or fraud occurrence between the manufacturer and the end consumer.
Topics : This project gives you hands-on experience in Blockchain technology as deployed for supply chain management. You will work on recording transaction every time the product changes hands. This project includes learning how blockchain is implemented in recording, tracking, assigning, and linking the supply chain tasks. Finally learn how blockchain is all set to become a universal supply chain operating system.
- Recording transaction with the hash key
- Monitoring the process through distributed application
- Creating new blocks & transmitting the process
Project 2 : Auctioning of Rare Artifacts
Industry – Online Marketplace
Problem Statement – How to bring transparency, immutability and decentralization to online auctions
Topics : This blockchain project tells you how the distributed, immutable technology is deployed in the rare artifacts auctions domain. Blockchain creates a network of participants, records the type of asset that is being auctioned, its veracity and authenticity, monitoring the transactions, evaluating the bids and other such tasks.
- Bringing credibility to artifact through blockchain
- Relaying the auction process to participants
- Securing the bids and assigning values to bidders
Project 3 : Voting with Ethereum blockchain
Industry – Government
Problem Statement – To ensure there is no vote rigging in a democratic election and there is complete transparency.
Topics : This projects includes deploying the Ethereum blockchain for building a secure voting system to elect a democratic government. You will learn how the Ethereum blockchain ensures confidentiality. Some of the aspects of this project include learning how to secure and validate the voting process, understanding how blockchain overcomes vote rigging, guarantees immutability and more.
