Ethereum has been called the "World's Computer" for its ability to decentralize transactions, code, and networks.
The Bitcoin network is Blockchain technology's first true use case, which allows for decentralized transactions of currency. Ethereum was developed to expand Bitcoin's capabilities to allow developers to create truly decentralized applications. It combines payments and code into a self-sustaining network like nothing we have seen before.
In this hands-on workshop you will break down the fundamentals of the Ethereum network and understand how it works. Follow an Ethereum transaction from end to end, and note the differences from Bitcoin's Blockchain.
