Code Your Own Cryptocurrency on the Ethereum Blockchain

Lately I have been very interested in learning solidity and have always been interested in learning how blockchain works behind the scenes.

A while a go, I stumbled upon Gregory from Dapp University and found several of his tutorials. They are extremely easy to understand and will give you a good grasp on the basics on how to create your own Ethereum cryptocurrency ERC20 token.

The video below is the full 7 hours and 57 minutes tutorial on how to create your own cryptocurrency!  I didn’t even know seven hour videos were even possible on youtube.

This link here brings you to a playlist of this video cut into different segments. It might be easier to digest.

 

The full app code can be found on github.com/dappuniversity
