As a Certified Smart Contract Developer™, Garratt Hasenstab is now prepared with the requisite skills, professional knowledge and hands-on experience in the development and deployment of Blockchain and Ethereum-based decentralized apps (dApps) such as automatically-executing contracts built on the Ethereum Virtual Machine utilizing frameworks such as Solidity (a contract-oriented, high-level language for implementing smart contracts) and Truffle (the most widely used development environment, testing framework and asset pipeline for Ethereum-based decentralized applications) in order to develop dApps for use cases such as token development, decentralized investigation report filing systems, project management, product sales contracts and voting ballots among other use cases for smart contracts.

Earlier this year, Hasenstab earned the Certified Blockchain Expert™ credential and is also currently completing additional advanced cryptography and Blockchain credentials through both the UC Berkeley Blockchain Professional Certificate Program and the IBM Blockchain Foundation Developer Program as part of his concerted efforts to develop a well-rounded and robust skill-set in this continuously expanding field.

Hasenstab said, “The Blockchain space is evolving quite rapidly and is providing enterprises with the opportunity to build very powerful business solutions resulting in significant operational cost savings. Enterprises are struggling to identify the right talent to deploy on Blockchain-based projects in-house, so this credential represents my continued effort to better serve enterprises I work with in this space, bridging the gap between the enterprise needs and the resources required to accomplish various end-use goals.”

This credential represents Hasenstab’s professional knowledge and technical expertise in the realm of decentralized blockchain applications (dApps) with the goal of leading his company and other ventures in the development and deployment of real estate industry-based “Proptech” ventures such as property sale contracts, smart lease contracts, decentralized title registry, property asset tokenization and crowdfunding contracts, peer-to-peer leasing agreements, BaaS (Blockchain as a Service) contracts, digital credit and development funding cryptocurrency contracts and digital property identification.

Hasenstab stated regarding this latest accomplishment, “My continued knowledge development in this field has greatly expanded my abilities to bring forth decentralized apps via distributed-ledger technologies enabling me to more effectively develop and facilitate new proptech advancements for The Mountain Life Companies and beyond that will move the real estate industry forward toward greater liquidity, access, transparency, disintermediation and efficiency.”

The Certified Smart Contract Developer (CSCD) program administered by Blockchain Council is an exhaustive training, lab & exam-based program which aims to provide proof-of-knowledge of the certificate holder in Blockchain space.
