Blockchain Architecture: A Framework

Blockchain Arcitecture Framework

Blockchain Architecture is a framework within which the architect creates and develops system architecture for a business. Within this framework we can define five main dimensions:

  • Blockchain Architectures and Disciplines for DLT
  • Blockchain Perspectives of the use of DLT
  • Specifications for NoSQL Database requirements (Immutability)
  • Blocks in an Architecture
  • Creation of Blockchain Use-Case

Ethereum vs Hyperledger

ethereum vs hyperledger
The most fundamental difference between Ethereum and Hyperledger is the way they are designed and their target audience. Ethereum with it's EVM, smart contract and public block chain is mostly targeted towards applications that are distributed in nature. On the other hand, Fabric has a very modular architecture and provides a lot of flexibility in terms of what you want to use and what you don't. It's pretty much a la carte and is targeted at businesses wanting to streamline their process by leveraging blockchain technology. For example, it is not possible in ethereum to have a transaction visible to someone, but not visible to others (a requirement that is very common in business). Fabric allows this and much more.

The first type work on some aspect of a core blockchain protocol, such as its networking layer (peer-to-peer communication) or the consensus layer (coming to a distributed consensus about the current state of the blockchain). They normally need a strong background in lower-level programming languages, distributed systems and cryptography.

The second type of developers write back-end applications that run on a blockchain (these usually take the form of smart contracts). For example, after ethereum burst onto the blockchain scene last year, the demand for programmers who understood its native programming language Solidity has gone through the roof. The preferred language for writing ethereum smart contracts, Solidity developers normally need a background in programming, security and software testing.
