Further in the book, we will explore Ethereum's evolution, Ethereum virtual machine, and smart contracts. We will also discover permissioned blockchains with Hyperledger Fabric and understand crypto assets, ERC20, ERC721 tokens, NFTs, and cryptocurrencies. With real-world examples and practical insights, you will gain a solid grasp of the fundamentals and practical applications that make blockchain a game-changer in various industries.
