An Agile Software Engineering Method to Design Blockchain Applications
October 13, 16:55
This paper proposes a software development process to gather the requirement, analyze, design, develop, test and deploy Blockchain applications.
The process is based on Agile practices, but makes also use of more formal notations, such as some UML diagrams, modified to represent specific concepts found in Blockchain development. An example is given to show how the method works.
