Come and learn in 45 minutes what is Blockchain and what it takes to become a Blockchain Engineer.

>> Blockchain engineers are making between $150,000 and $175,000 annually on average. As of now, Blockchain engineers are top paid roles in software development, on par with specialists focused on Artificial Intelligence.

>> Demand for Blockchain engineers has increased by 400 percent since late 2017 according to Hired, a firm that helps clients recruit tech candidates.

What coding languages to learn to become a Blockchain Engineer:
- C/C++

- Python

- JavaScript and Node.JS

- Java

- SQL and MongoDB database design and management

//Knowledge of Linux would be great.

>> The most popular programming language used currently to write smart contracts is Solidity [it is based on OOP JavaScript]

List of the major cryptocurrencies (coding languages) are:

Bitcoin (C++), Ethereum (C++), Stratis (C#), Hyperledger (Java), Corda (Java), Credits (Java or JS)

There are multiple aspects to working on blockchain:

1- You want to build your own blockchain (like Ethereum, Bitcoin etc).
2- You want to build a distributed applications (dapp) or smart contract on top of an existing blockchain (Ethereum Ethereum Project is the most popular one currently).
3- You want to build a “distributed ledger”. Hyperledger Fabric (Welcome to Hyperledger Fabric) is the leader in that one.
