- The challenge
- Blockchain technology known from its cryptocurrencies is an unknown territory for most of us. Since the rise of the Bitcoin a lot of capital found it's way into cryptocurrencies. As a proof of concept, I created a lottery web app in Angular. This web app integrates with MetaMask, a cryptocurrency wallet plugin attached to the browser. In this web app participants of the lottery buy tickets and gamble on a number. The code that performs these crypto currency transfers is written in Solidity, a language made for the Etherium blockchain. Picking the winning number is real challenge, since blockchain technology relies on a network of nodes that execute the same code. Random is never truly random.
