What we learned from our first blockchain software project
Two software engineers in the company I work wrote about their experience working with blockchain for the first time
Early this year, a startup called Coinderby, creator of a multiplayer game for breeding, racing, and trading virtual horses using blockchain technology, sought our help to build a singular web application. Although the project was based on the same stack we’re already very comfortable working with (Reactjs + Node + GraphQL), it incorporated a new and exciting challenge: this app would be monetized with ethereum! So yes, this would be our first project incorporating blockchain!
At first, we had misguided ideas about blockchain. Once we started working with it we realized things were not exactly as we thought they would be. So we’ve decided to share our learning process in this post, detailing some of the unexpected challenges we faced and how we solved them along the way.
