Gas is the cost of using the Ethereum platform. All update and computational tasks in any smart contract from deployment to usage consumes gas. This gas is then paid to miners of the blockchain, the guys behind updating the network. Becoming a coder who knows solidity and javascript is not enough. One should exercise caution…

I built a simple Ethereum project deployed to rinkeby network. It is part of my solidity course in Udemy and pretty proud of finishing it. The whole project taught me a lot of insights : Now I understand why Solidity programming is a strongly typed scripting language. Since blockchain technology essentially is a cryptographic database…

Super typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda) destroyed the middle part of the Philippines in 2013. I was working in Africa as an accountant at the time. It was the strongest storm (230kph) in our country's history. It took all the ocean waters with it and killed thousands of people and left damages in billions…

Update: I decided to withdraw from applying to the code challenge. Upon seeing the circumstances, I will be sacrificing the time to learn and I have preserved for blockchain and web development and that I could not be doing. I learned of the program just yesterday and the time constraints won't be favorable to the…

Though the book largely focuses on how us humans evolved and altered the existence of all living things all over the world (including our own), the explanation of Yuval Noah Harrari in on how us humans embraced the concept of money as a force of unification caused me to reflect on what is needed to…

It's a process. Debugging is a common coding routine for developers and I am getting used to it. But as promising as blockchain really is, a lot of technology built around Ethereum still breaks, we are still in its very early stages. Deploying a project in rinkeby network was the task today but after multiple…
