I was first introduced to the Block-chain with Bitcoin, however, I’ve realised there is much more to it than just cryptocurrencies, the possibilities of a decentralised and trusted platform span much further than just finance. I am particularly interested in smart contracts, unbreakable, infallible contracts that run on the block-chain and may completely revolutionise tasks. Having a mortgage could take place entirely on the block-chain from collecting payments to transferring ownership of the property and the details set down in the contract are absolute, there can be no disputes or different interpretations of a smart contract.

I’ve been experimenting with the block-chain and here are some of the things I’ve achieved:

Saying “Hello World” on the Blockchain
