Blockchain has undoubtedly broken the Internet in the past few years. This technology enabled developers to disrupt not only financial systems but also virtually every industry. Blockchain gave rise to the development of Decentralized Apps. Dapps have interesting properties: they are fault tolerant, auditable, open source, and there is no central control after they're deployed. They also incentivized people to run them with currency that's worth money.
This presentation is about building a Decentralized App with Node.js on top of the Ethereum network using Truffle and web3.js.
