I ran across this great tutorial on using #golang to build a simple blockchain. Since I'm new to golang and I'm interested in all things blockchain, I decided to give it a try. It worked like a charm and is super simple to run.
Of course this blockchain doesn't include making a cryptocurrency or saving the blockchain, later tutorials show that. On the flip side, I was quite impressed on simple and 'tight' #golang is. I like it better than Java and it has bindings to Python. Maybe I should look at working in this language.
