What is required to start a career in blockchain technology in India?



blockchain is an ‘open ledger’ which records and manages transactions. Each record is called a ‘block’ and contains details of the transaction timestamp along with a link to the previous block. This protects the data from being manipulated retrospectively. Moreover, since each transaction is recorded over a distributed ledger in an encrypted manner, the technology is designed to be secure.

Here are the skill sets you must master :

Ethereum- If you want to become a Blockchain Developer, you must know the popular programming language-Solidity. Solidity is used to write smart contracts. If you are wondering what solidity is, it’s an object-oriented programming language. Its syntax is similar to JavaScript and ECMAScript. Thus, if you have preliminary knowledge about JavaScript, learning Solidity becomes easier for you.

Hyperledger : Hyperledger is a private permission Blockchain used to develop business blockchain framework with the help of hyperledger tools. If you wish to start with Hyperledger then you have two stable projects, (i) Hyperledger Fabric, and (ii)Hyperledger Composer

We have a few more of them but they are not as stable as the ones mentioned above and are under moderation.

Multichain : Multichain is used to develop solutions for Private Blockchain which can be either permission or permissionless. You can also build public blockchain if you have an expertise in Multichain.

Additionally, With coding skills at the core, the desired skill set of a Blockchain expert is:

  • Exposure to Big Data and Data Science
  • Knowledge of Java, C++, Ethereum’s Solidity, Python
  • Understanding of financial services, payment processing, credit services
