Abstract: Since the birth of Blockchain technology in 2008, it has been widely implemented in areas of finance, most notably as a cryptocurrency which now has real-world monetary value. The rise of blockchain can be attributed to its unique characteristics: being trust-less, immutable and decentralized. There are companies who adopt private blockchains in general. However, with the emergence of special products such as Infrastructure as a Service that ease blockchain implementation issues, the public blockchains are steadily garnering interests not just from companies but from aspiring blockchain developers as well. This project will develop a mobile application using Ethereum, an open-source and public blockchain platform that enables developers to create decentralized applications with it along with Android Studio to create the application for mobile usage. Then, security testing is performed on the application. Using the observations from the tests, we will be able to identify threats that the blockchain environment can and cannot prevent.
