IBM Blockchain Platform

Very useful in being able to set up, operate, manage and govern a blockchain network. This is useful to get started quickly, so as to focus on the value-adds that blockchain provides. A way in which it can be improved would be providing more educational/academic licenses to get students and academics more involved.

  • Sometimes when I try to instantiate a chain code, it won't let me and the error messages aren't clear so I can't work on a solution
  • When a peer is not working, it's hard to know why just from the console

Overall it is very useful. But some basic understanding of blockchain terminology and nomenclature is necessary. For instance, realizing that a Certificate Authority must be provisioned before a Peer because the Peer needs to be registered with the Certificate Authority. These things are a little more obtuse to those who are not familiar with the blockchain platform.

The use of Hyperledger Fabric from the IBM Blockchain Platform is a clear advantage against the other platforms, because [it] is an open standard and it is more efficient because of the centralized ordering service.
