Learn Solidity By Creating Your Own Doggos Crypto Game

About Bitdegree

The Bitdegree platform offers students the best online courses with a clear and transparent blockchain based reward system and achievement tracking. Companies can use this unique tool to recruit tech talent.

About the Course

Space doggos Bitdegree course (similar to crypto-kitties) will teach students how to build a game on the Ethereum platform. These are the first steps in learning the solidity programming language.

Lesson 1: Chapter 1

Overview of the goals:

  • Be able to create a unique space doggo character
  • The space doggo will be saved in the Ethereum blockchain
  • Generate a blockchain based space environment filled with galaxies to explore

Lesson 1: Chapter 2

The basics of creating a contract.

  • Adding the pragma version at the beginning of the contract
  • Defining the contract name
// Try creating your contract here
pragma solidity ^0.4.20;
contract SpaceDoggos {

When you succesfully write the code you are greeted with this flashy screen.  A bit too flashy in my opinion and you have no option to click it away in Chrome.

Lesson 1: Chapter 3 Variables

pragma solidity ^0.4.20;
contract SpaceDoggos {
    // Write your solution below
uint maxPlanetsPerSystem =10;
uint minPlanetsPerSystem =3;
uint planetCodeDigits =7;
uint systemCodeDigits =7;

Lesson 1: Chapter 4 Variables

I won’t go through all the Chapters, since It is much more fun to do it on your own. You can take the course here. There is no need to signup.


The course is very similar to freecodecamps courses. I am looking forward to finishing this course and future courses that Bitdegree has to offer. At the moment Bitdegree is still flying under the radar with the coin below the ICO price.  This is definitely not a recommendation to purchase the token, but you might want to keep an eye on it.
