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:
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.
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.
In this lecture we will introduce the Blockchain, Ethereum & Smart Contracts to people who are new to this technology to revise their concepts.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Here we will deploy the fully working TCoin on Ethereum and test all the above features we have build.
Now we will start improvising the TCoin further by adding a central admin in our TCoin who can be different from the TCoin Creator.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Now finally we will test all the functionality together to ensure everything works as expected.
