‘The aelf Blockchain Application Architecture Guide’ was selected as the ‘Most Popular IT Book of 2020’

At the beginning of 2021, the results of the ‘Most Popular IT Book of 2020’ event hosted by 51CTO were announced. After nearly two months of voting, the ‘aelf Blockchain Application Architecture Guide’ has been selected as one of the TOP 5 books in the Artificial Intelligence category, and has been named ‘The Most Popular IT Book of 2020’.

The “aelf Blockchain Application Architecture Guide”, co-authored by Du Xingzhou, R & D and Project Management Engineer of Blockchain Technology, Meng Fanke, senior blockchain system engineer, Hao Yukun, Senior Director of Shanghai Wanxiang Blockchain Co., Ltd., is to guide readers to build blockchain application systems based on aelf’s technology framework.

As an implementation of architecture design, blockchain has been applied to many sectors. However, some technical practitioners, being unfamiliar with the blockchain architecture and applications, have no idea about how to get started with blockchain projects. This book starts with the basics to help readers establish a distributed perspective, develop a blockchain mindset, familiarize themselves with the characteristics of the aelf platform, before going on to build a developer environment and prototype applications. This book integrates the theories and applications of three core technologies, namely, smart contracts, cross-chain design, and performance optimization, and guides aelf application design step by step to help readers make breakthroughs in business governance with the help of aelf’s technological ecosystem.

On 10 December 2020, the successful launch of the aelf mainnet, the successive start-up of the main chain & side chains, and the stable running of the multi-chain structure of the mainnet all represented an important step towards the autonomy of the aelf ecosystem. This book aims to help readers take the first step in transforming decentralized applications with aelf’s technology.

As more and more technical practitioners join in the construction of the aelf ecosystem, aelf will continue to focus on blockchain technology innovation and promote the mainnet development. In order to ensure the smooth progress of the mainnet, aelf will hold an event for the mainnet full function tryout, all ERC20-ELF holders can receive ELF (Mainnet Token) through staking. Meanwhile, by participating in the lucky draw on the aelf mainnet, staking users will have the chance to win up to $200,000 USD. This is not only our way of saying thank you to our users for your support over the years but also an important step to improve the mainnet function and enhance user experience. Please stay tuned for the upcoming events.
