We know Docker transformed the software industry by introducing containerization. Docker made it easy for applications to package code, runtime, libraries, configurations etc all at one place. Cut to Kubernetes, that offers a platform to deploy these container based Docker applications.

Today in this blog, let us go through what Kubernetes is, how it works and what are its benefits.

What is Kubernetes?

-Kubernetes, also known as K8S, is an orchestration platform that facilitates the management of containerised applications by the means of networking, storage and configuration and deployment.

-An open-source project by Google launched in 2014, Kubernetes can be called a container-management…

One of the revolutionary concepts that came into the software markets was software containerization. Containers are execution environments that enable apps to run in isolation from one another. The Docker project amplified the use of this technology and thus started a revolution of sorts with Docker containers simplifying application development, testing, and deployment.

In this blog let us learn more about Docker containers, its components and the various advantages of Docker.

In our previous blogs, we learnt what a cryptocurrency wallet is and also how a crypto wallet is developed and the steps involved. Having a crypto wallet is one of the first prerequisites for crypto trading. ​A​ wallet stores your cryptocurrencies, performs various operations on the cryptos and much more.

On a broader level, crypto wallets are categorized into Custodial wallets and Non-Custodial wallets. In this blog we will discuss both these types, their pros and cons, their features and flaws etc.

What is a Custodial Wallet?

In the real world, in any kind of institution, organization or even in a community, there needs to be governance. Wherever there is a group of people or a group of resources operating together, it becomes extremely important that these resources are efficiently governed so that they sustain for a long time and work in harmony. That is the reason why we have governments to take care of communities, a family head to take care of the family, a principal to govern schools or colleges, etc.

While these are examples of real world governance, the digital world also needs proper…

The advent of Ethereum brought about a revolutionary change in the field of Blockchain. With the inception of the smart contracts and dApps, Ethereum captured the Blockchain world like crazy for many years sans any worthy competitor.

Circa 2018, Justin Sun developed and launched the Tron Blockchain in the market. Tron’s code base was forked from Ethereum itself; the code was written in Solidity programming language — a language Ethereum also used for writing smart contracts. Hence, Ethereum and Tron were compatible with each other in all aspects.

What is Tron Blockchain?

Tron is a decentralized blockchain platform built with distributed storage technology that…

The DeFi world witnessed an interesting event with the launch of the Binance Chain DEX. Binance DEX is well known for its super-fast trading mechanism. But in the process of making this trading a huge success, Binance DEX suffered from inflexibility from a programmability point of view. Blockchain’s long pending challenge of scalability made it impossible for Binance Chain to handle the network traffic the systems would experience due to fast trading. A very good example of this would be about how Cryptokitties clogged the Ethereum network and forced it to halt.

With the invent of Binance Smart Chain though…

Do you remember in our last blog on Polkadot, we talked about Substrate being used for the creation and development of Parachains? On a very basic level, Substrate can be defined as the framework for creating blockchain networks on Polkadot; rather Polkadot has been built using Substrate. But by no means is Substrate used only for Polkadot; in fact it is not a part of Polkadot at all. Confused?

It is known that a single Blockchain network cannot suffice all the requirements for a dApp to be performant and scalable. For eg:- even with Ethereum 2.0, an application cannot be scalable and performing if there are tonnes of smart contracts executing simultaneously. For a Blockchain application to perform to its fullest, it is important for it to leverage the benefits and features of multiple Blockchain networks. Several such projects to bridge multiple blockchains have been released and launched in the market, amongst which Polkadot is one of the popular ones. …

While Uniswap and SushiSwap have been reigning the DeFi marketplace with their decentralized token swap protocols; they both promote liquidity sharing. Another contender which is joining the race of creating an automated marketplace for crypto-trading lately is the SashimiSwap protocol. The aelf Blockchain network very recently announced the release of SashimiSwap, which they claim is an upgraded and simplified version of the SushiSwap.

Let us understand more about the SashimiSwap project in detail in this blog.

What is SashimiSwap and how does it work?

SashimiSwap is a DeFi protocol conceptualized and developed by aelf. Based on the lines of…

In one of our previous blogs, we learnt how Yield Farming allows traders to lend their cryptocurrencies to liquidity pools and earn interest. Taking forward this concept, several protocols like Uniswap were launched in the DeFi market to facilitate token swaps. Uniswap on Ethereum was the pioneer of eliminating the challenge of continual liquidity in the market by introducing automated liquidity pools. Growing liquidity ensured the easy process of swapping tokens.

Another popular protocol called the SushiSwap is doing the rounds of the DeFi marketplace of late. So, what is this SushiSwap protocol? SushiSwap can actually be looked at like…
