Hey, Heretics! 👋

I've started learning about smart contracts and the Ethereum network recently. This is quite intriguing stuff to learn.
But, alas, there are not so many tools and resources that can help understanding Eth and it's power.

However, I've found some useful links that can help you on your way of learning Solidity, Etehreum, and Smart Contracts. Good luck!


Bonus:


Would be great to see more links from you!
Besides, curious if there are any alternatives to Ethereum and its ecosystem. Anyone got experience creating smart contracts in the NEO or NEM network?

Cool, thanks!
I'm curious if there are any other usages of smart contracts other than crowdfunding?

Hey, Mich. Thank you.
I think crowdsale and gambling are the most popular cases today. But the industry is evolving very quickly. New types of projects are so soon to come.
For example, https://www.cryptokitties.co. It's way too innovative and fun :D

Is this stuff for developers only? I am looking for a smart-contracts theory for ordinary people. Can you help me? :D

Well, I think it's impossible to learn Smart Contracts without actually understanding how it works.
I'd recommend starting with understanding how Ethereum Network works. Here is a cool guide for beginners: https://blockgeeks.com/guides/ethereum/

Yes, Smart Contracts can be used for land registry, application for marketing, ads, etc. In fact, it can be used in any deal between two entities where funds are to be transferred based on successful fulfillment of condition/s.
