Hyperledger Sawtooth is a modular platform for building, deploying, and running distributed ledgers. It includes a novel consensus algorithm called Proof of Elapsed Time (PoET), which targets large distributed validator populations with minimal resource consumption.
Its modularity makes it especially interesting for developers and enterprises. Sawtooth also allows us to define rules for transactions and smart contracts tailored to individual needs. This is a permissioned network with great capacity for scalability.
At first glance, Sawtooth might seem unusual to experienced blockchain developers who have never seen concepts such as “transaction families” before. However, a closer look reveals that despite looking different, such concepts can be used to implement familiar ones in more flexible and modular ways.
This online Hyperledger Sawtooth course offers developers an opportunity to become proficient with blockchain and Hyperledger Sawtooth. After reviewing the fundamentals of blockchain technology, the student will learn how Hyperledger Sawtooth fits in the blockchain environment, discovering its architecture, tools and transaction families. Next, the student will look at different SDKs to eventually be able to analyse real-world examples and identify the most important aspects.
