  • Who should take this course?

    There is a lot of excitement globally on the opportunities that bitcoin and it's underlying technology, the blockchain, offers, for financial and non-financial institutions as well as for individuals like :

    • Developers
    • Technologists interested in learning Ethereum, Hyperledger, and Blockchain
    • Architects wanting to expand their skills to Blockchain technology
    • Experimenters curious to learn how Blockchain technology can change the way we do business
    • Entrepreneurs with technology background interested in realizing their business idea on the Blockchain
    • Anyone interested in ERC20 Tokens & ICOs

  • What are the pre-requisites for this Blockchain Training Course?

    Learners who want to take up Simplilearn’s course should be prepared with the following : 

    • Fundamentals of blockchain
    • Prior Coding knowledge
    • You should already have developed a couple of software applications, backend, frontend or both
    • Basic Knowledge of Javascript, HTML, CSS and NPM

  • What projects are included in this Blockchain Training Course?

    The Blockchain training course includes 9 real-life, industry-based projects. 5 projects are dealt with, within the course, and 4 projects are provided as assessments. Successful completion of 2 projects out of the 4 is a part of the certification eligibility criteria.


    Project 1 (Ethereum)
    Domain- Crowd Funding Smart Contract 
    Description: Sometimes a good idea takes a lot of funds and collective effort. You could ask for donations, but donors prefer to give to projects they are more certain will get traction and proper funding. This is an example where a crowdfunding would be ideal. In this example we will make a better crowdfunding by solving two important problems: how rewards are managed and kept, and how the money is spent after the funds are raised.

    Project 2 (Ethereum)
    Domain- Voting Ballot Smart Contract 
    Description: The following contract is quite complex, but showcases a lot of Solidity’s features. It implements a voting contract. Of course, the main problems of electronic voting is how to assign voting rights to the correct persons and how to prevent manipulation. We will not solve all problems here, but at least we will show how delegated voting can be done so that vote counting is automatic and completely transparent at the same time. The idea is to create one contract per ballot, providing a short name for each option. Then the creator of the contract who serves as chairperson will give the right to vote to each address individually.
    The persons behind the addresses can then choose to either vote themselves or to delegate their vote to a person they trust.

    Project 3 (Ethereum)
    Domain- Lottery Smart Contract
    Description: The lottery is an obvious next generation purpose of the Blockchain. Like a lot of Blockchain uses, a lottery is ideally suited for this technology. In any Blockchain token sale, smart contact (or token) purchasers buy “tokens” or values in exchange for ETH, fiat or other currencies. They transfer some form of value for the new Token. At the end of the sale, the provider issues Tokens in the amount of the values purchased and the public Blockchain shows the results of how much each wallet owns in the new tokens — with each wallet being identified by a unique hash.

    Project 4 (Hyperledger)
    Domain- ACME Airlines Model
    Description: We will develop a Network application for this fictitious Airline including Business network modeling, Smart contracts development, Transaction processors - coding in Javascript, Client-side code - in Javascript, Participant management

    Project 5 (Hyperledger)
    Domain- Boeing Aircraft Assignment Model
    Description: Aircraft life cycle has four key phases—design and build, schedule and operate, monitor and maintain, and dispose—and each of this phases have steps assigned to them: Design and build, Schedule and operate, Monitor and maintain, Dispose. In each of these steps, thousands upon thousands of individual parts are involved, so tracking each and every one along with maintaining a record of its conditions becomes a challenge. Create a blockchain to predict maintenance events and assign aircraft to a flying roster.

    Project 6  (Ethereum)
    Domain- Real World Casino
    Description: A casino owner wants to implement an Ethereum blockchain to monitor all players on the floor and the transaction payout they get when they win a game. Write a smart contract in Ethereum to do the same. Explain what kind of smart contract would you write.

    Project 7  (Ethereum)
    Domain- Election Campaign 
    Description: A country wants to hold its elections and wants to prevent voters fraud. Create a DAO to safeguard transparency and eliminate vote rigging. They issue voting token to everyone eligible for voting. People start voting and use their token. Every vote is recorded on the Ethereum blockchain to ensure transparency and allowing everything to run by itself and decentralized.

    Project 8 (Hyperledger)
    Domain- Syndicated Loan
    Description: Initial creation of the deal with the borrower, KYC check that the borrower is available, Syndication of cash from investors in order to fulfill the loan tranche, Borrower consent check that the investor is allowed to purchase,
    Blacklists check to make sure investor is allowed, Payment of coupons by % down to each investor, Voting rights on amendments of loans
    Process Flow: A borrower asks an agent to broker an agreement under given terms, 
    After drafting terms, agent reaches out to investors to syndicate (fulfill liquidity of cash to front the loan), Once the loan is created, it can be traded in the market

    Project 9 (Hyperledger)
    Domain- Escrow
    Description: A trusted third party takes responsibility for verifying the availability of funds in advance of the closing of the sale of a good (e.g., real estate purchase). All of the steps to close including verifying payment, title search, etc., could be on the blockchain:

    Sale agreement/contract
    Clearing of contingencies to sale
    Certificate of ownership/title search
    Good Faith Estimate for closing costs
    Proof of transfer of funds from buyer and mortgage lender to an escrow account
    Final closing costs
    Financial clearing of seller's financial obligations
    Proof of purchase and transfer of title
