  • Group Consensus
  • What are Use Cases for Blockchain?

Use Case Examples

  • Currency
  • Banking Services
  • Voting
  • Medical Records
  • Supply Chain / Value Chain
  • Content Distribution
  • Verification of Software Updates (cars, planes, trains, etc)
  • Law Enforcement
  • Title and Ownership Records
  • Social Media and Online Credibility
  • Fractional asset ownership
  • Cable Television billing
  • High fault tolerance
  • DDoS-proof
  • Public or Private Blockchain?
  • Who are the participants?
  • What does a Blockchain app look like?


  • Resembles typical full stack web application
  • Any internal state changes and all transactions are written to the blockchain
  • Node.js
  • IDE
  • Public Blockchain visibility
  • Private Blockchain solutions
  • Oracles
  • How do I design a Blockchain app?

What does this solution need to let users do?

  • Will the proposed solution reduce or remove the problems and pain points currently felt by users?
  • What should this solution prevent users from doing?
  • Do you need a solution ready for heavy use on day 1?
  • Is your solution idea enhanced by the use of Blockchain? Does the use of Blockchain create a better end-user experience? If so, how?
  • Has your business developed custom software solutions before?
  • What level of support are you going to need?
  • How big is the developer community?
  • Does your vision of the future align with the project or platform’s vision of the future?
  • Does the platform aim to make new and significant contributions to the development space, or is it an efficiency / cost play?
  • Should the solution be a public or private Blockchain?
  • Should the solution be an open or closed Blockchain?
  • Create a plan for contract updates and changes!
  • Hybrid solutions
  • Monetary exchanges?
  • How do I develop a Blockchain app?

AGILE approach pre-release

  • Define guiding principles up front
  • Software vs Firmware
  • Announcements, not transactions!
  • Classes, not contracts
  • Link contracts to share functions
  • Use calling contracts to keep contract address the same
  • Hyperledger vs Ethereum
  • CONSIDER No of Users * Avg No of Transactions (state changes) per User
  • Should a Blockless solution be applied?
  • Performance
  • Security
  • Anonymity
  • Security
  • Monolithic vs Modular
  • Sandwich complexity model
  • How do I test a Blockchain app?

Recommend 5x to 10x traditional application testing time

  • SECURITY is #1!
  • Networks (Ethereum)
