An enterprise blockchain or distributed ledger technology (DLT) is very much like a shared document stored on a cloud drive. There are just two differences. First, there is no master copy of this document stored with an escrow or arbiter, and second, any change to the document happens only after it has been signed off by all required stakeholders. This allows businesses to form a peer-to-peer network and establish a common ground of truth without giving up its control in hands of a single organization. The decentralized nature of the ledger combined with version control or immutability of the stored data is perfect for fast account reconciliation, secure tracking and tracing of products, and transparent records with no costly third-party auditing. This book teaches you how to build such decentralized applications.What's Inside:* Covers v2.0 of Fabric. Examples written in TypeScript and JavaScript* Deploying to production across multiple nodes using Docker* Securing communications with TLS* Handling Data Privacy* Comprehensive coverage of Fabric CA Server and Client* Bonus chapters on Bitcoin and LDAPThe author has done justice to it by really starting from the basics and explaining with wit the core concepts and taking the reader slowly to the core of Fabric.- Satej Sahu, Senior Enterprise Architect, HoneywellA very beginner friendly introduction to a massive amount of data needed to operate in the blockchain world.- Gregory Reshetniak, Product Owner, Ocado TechnologyA detailed bible about Hyperledger Fabric. This book is mandatory in the blockchain world. - Krzysztof Kamyczek, Architect Software Developer, Luxoft

Blockchain is an emerging technology for organizations to almost instantaneously make and verify transactions, streamlining business processes, saving money, and reducing the potential for fraud. This book covers the application of blockchain technology to the enterprise world, it describes the opportunities and challenges for adoption of DLT (Digital Ledger Technology) in a corporate environment, and specific use cases that may benefit from a decentralized and distributed trustless network. There are many books on blockchain, the new de-centralised ledger technology made famous (or infamous) by Bitcoin, Onecoin and others. But as cryptocurrencies and stock markets rise and fall with surprise volatility and the world economy emerges changed by coronavirus and the resulting economic crash, many in industry are looking again at the powerful features of blockchain and how these may help them adapt. This new book sets out the core features of blockchain and uniquely describes, in natural language and in real-life scenarios, how de-centralised ledgers may affect industries as varied as virus-tracking apps, finance, investment and healthcare.

Blockchain technology (BT) has become popular in the firms in the present time, however, implementation of BT includes several risk factors from various points of view. Some of these risks can be serious for the processes of firms. These risks should be cautiously recognized and analyzed to reduce the negative impacts of them. Assessment of the risks can be recognized as a multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) problem. In this work, the risks that will occur when implementing BT are assessed by using MCDM methodology built on Single Valued Neutrosophic Sets (SVNSs), Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), and Decision Making and Trial Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL) methods.

Blockchain is a technology that allows for the secure storage of information on an open, distributed system. It was formally introduced as an implementable technology by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008 and has enjoyed surges in public visibility due to the popularity of its most famous application, Bitcoin. This thesis examines the history, theory, and characteristics of blockchain in order to understand why it has the potential to be used in the business world. This thesis will specifically focus on blockchains synergy with smart contracts to facilitate asset transfers in financial services, healthcare, real estate, and fine art. After a discussion of potential technical and legal challenges and an analysis of existing business use cases, this paper will develop a cost benefit analysis to determine the financial feasibility of enterprise blockchain solutions. This thesis will conclude with recommendations for the development and direction of enterprise blockchain solutions in the future.

Before we start with a formal introduction to blockchain, let us take you for a moment to a possible future that should realize sooner than we expect. You are on a vacation outside your home country, at a shopping mall and receive a notification saying there is a sale on luxurious watches. You haven't been to this store before. You pick up a watch and you wonder if the watch is genuine and worth the price. You start a mobile application and place it on the watch. The application recognizes the watch and displays the complete lifecycle of the watch like where it was manufactured and the GPS coordinates, where it was designed, what is the warranty period, how much custom duty you need to pay (if any) if you bring this watch back to your home country and even showing and comparing similar watches. You purchase the watch based on these details and now feel even more connected to the watch brand and establish a trust with the shopping store for selling genuine products. Let's consider a complex B2B process like an international trade finance which currently takes days to complete the trade process. If the entire workflow is automated, self regulated and equipped with enough consensus between various parties carrying out the trade, it can provide a window of opportunity for new buyers and sellers to handshake, implement and execute trade seamlessly with lot of trust and confidence. In the above scenarios that we described earlier and possibly in all our future applications, data would be a central point for businesses, consumers, and even system interaction. Now in a data-driven world, you need to establish trust and compliance between parties, you need governance, regulation and accountability through automated workflow and digital contracts rather than central authority and finally a piece of technology that can enable to realize this goal. Once these basic parameters are enabled, it opens endless opportunities to move any value (from services to digital assets) across the network in a secure and transparent way. The technology enabler that can aid in realizing this opportunity is blockchain. We view blockchain as an enabler to provide consensus on data. The consensus can be between B2B, B2C or C2C. We call blockchain an enabler, as blockchain alone will not lead to realizing the opportunities we talked about earlier.The combinatorial power of blockchain, smart contracts, and technologies like IoT & Artificial Intelligence would enable to deliver value-driven intelligent applications. While we described our vision, we are probably at the first generation of blockchain implementation where technologies are still evolving, and use cases are being realized. Through this book, we aim to provide a reference guide for building blockchain applications. The book comprises of three chapters. In Chapter 1, we will provide a neutral vision and architecture for blockchain, without getting into vendor specific details. In chapter 2 and 3, we will demonstrate the working of two widely used blockchain implementations - Ethereum and IBM Hyperledger Fabric respectively. To summarize, as part of the book, we will cover the following - 1. A vendor-neutral architecture for building any blockchain applications. 2. A detailed introduction to Ethereum and its core components. We will set up a local instance of Ethereum and build end-to-end application on Ethereum blockchain using a hands-on approach. At the end, we would cover topics around extension to Ethereum blockchain, integration with the external world and the future of smart contracts. 3. A detailed introduction to IBM Hyperledger Fabric and its core components. We would cover the enterprise capabilities provided by Fabric 1.0. At the end, we would set up a local instance of Fabric and build an end-to-end application on Fabric using a hands-on approach.
