Have you heard of Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum & Smart Contracts?

Have you ever thought of creating your own cryptocurrencies?

Have you ever created any Smart Contracts?

In this course I will teach you how to create your own personal cryptocurrency on top of Ethereum Blockchain and use it to represent any asset, game coins, gold coins or anything that has value to you or your business. In this course, we will create a basic coin from scratch and then keep modifying it to make it a perfect virtual coin or token. We will learn what:

  • What is Ethereum, Smart Contracts & Blockchain?
  • What is Solidity & Ethereum Virtual Machine?
  • How to install & Setup Solidity Development Environment?
  • How to write first basic smart contracts & Test it?
  • How to write a Minimal Viable Token in Solidity?
  • How to deploy & test the Minimal Viable Token in Solidity?
  • Building a Cryptocurrency which is maintained by thousands of computers on Blockchain. Which has many features like
    1. Block reward to the miner
    2. Central Administrator to mint the new coins
    3. Central Administrator to freeze or unfreeze the assets
    4. And many more features

This course will enable you to build any peer-to-peer managed tokens on top of Ethereum which you can use to build your won business use cases etc.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone interested in being Ethereum Developer
  • Anyone interested in building decentralized application (DApps)
  • Anyone interested in Learning Solidity Language for Smart Contracts
  • Anyone interested in learning how to build their own cryptocurrency

Introduction & Overview
3 Lectures 18:12

This will be the introductory lecture where I will introduce myself & take you to the entire course and explain what we are going to learn here.

Preview 03:10

In this lecture we will introduce the Blockchain, Ethereum & Smart Contracts to people who are new to this technology to revise their concepts.

Preview 10:59

Here I will explain the Solidity & Ethereum Virtual Machine at very basic level.

Building A New Cryptocurrency called TCoin
14 Lectures 01:47:53

Here we will write a very small minimal cryptocurrency with only transfer function & initial supply. We will also run this cryptocoin in our Ethereum Mist Wallet.

A Minium Viable Cryptocurrency

Here we will learn to execute our newly created cryptocurrency on Ethereum Test-Net using the Mist Wallet & test the transfer feature. We will be extending the cryptocurrency in upcoming lectures.

Executing Minimal Viable Cryptocurrency - Stage 1

In this lecture we will add the currency name, currency symbol, decimal points etc in the currency constructor and make sure this will get stored in state variables.

Adding Parameters to Cryptocurrency for Symbols etc.

Here we will put some checks in the transfer function before we actually transfer the fund. This will be done to ensure person who has the balance should be able to transfer it.

Adding Balance Checks Before Transfer

Now we will add a Transfer Event in the transfer function to alert the all the clients who are watching this cryptocurrency. This can also be used for the logging of variables to an interface for debugging purpose.

Preview 03:35

We will also need a way to allow someone to transfer TCoins on their behalf. We will add this feature in our cryptocurrency in this lecture.

Adding Transfer on-behalf of Feature in TCoin

Here we will deploy the fully working TCoin on Ethereum and test all the above features we have build.

Deploying Fully Function Cryptocurrency TCoin - Stage 2

Now we will start improvising the TCoin further by adding a central admin in our TCoin who can be different from the TCoin Creator. 

Improving Cryptocurrency - Adding Central Administrator

Here we will allow the admin to Mint the new TCoins in anyone's account using a function. We will add this feature in this lecture.

Allowing Administrator to Mint New TCoins

As per our requirements we also want our admin to freeze or unfreeze anyone's wallet at anytime. We will do this here in this lecture.

Allowing Administrator to Freeze TCoins

We will now add a feature to buy or sell the TCoin from or to TCoin Smart Contract respectively. We will learn how to add this feature in this lecture.

Adding Automatic Selling & Buying of TCoins in Ether

Now we will make sure that no one's balance must go below certain minimum threshold so that they can sell or buy the TCoins. This feature will be implemented in this course.

Adding Auto Refill Feature

Here we will implement the logic which will give a mathematical computation challenge to the miner before he submit the Block to implement the proof-of-work logic. We will also implement the Block reward in the logic.

Adding Proof-of-Work & Block Reward

Now finally we will test all the functionality together to ensure everything works as expected.

Testing Full & Final TCoins (New Cryptocurrency called TCoins) - Stage 3
