The blockchain is becoming a major development factor that many of us are looking at their business with blockchain integration. It looks too fascinating to hope on this technology of future. But blockchain is far deeper than what it looks. It provides numerous business opportunities and options to get the development and project building done.

Its understanding takes us one step further to acceptance. We all must accept in regards to blockchain that Judith Martin said: “Many people mistakenly think a new technology cancels out an old one.” As blockchain still need old tech folks to get things done, thus the question arises what MEAN Stack is and why to go with it when there are numerous options available to shake hand with?

Let’s first figure out first what MEAN Stack is?

The MEAN stack is comparatively new and innovative technology. It is not like the LAMP stack which has been tested by any of the organizations out there. The MEAN was coined by Valeri Karpov and was conceptualized by Amos Haviv which himself developed it at the elementary level. Mean stack is a set of Open Source components, which when used together provides an end-to-end framework. In MEAN each initial letter describes its components: MongoDB, Express or Express.js, Angular or Angular.js and Node.js.

MongoDB is a Document database which is used by ones back-end application to store its data as JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) documents. Not SQL database. It can allocate the run-time space for the data records.

Express or Express.js is a back-end web application framework running on top of the Node.js

Angular or Angular.js is a front-end web app framework which runs one's JavaScript code in the user’s browser, allowing the application UI to be dynamic.

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime environment and let’s implementing one's application back-end in JavaScript.

Why to use MEAN Stack for blockchain business applications when other trusted options are available?


The thing which makes MEAN stack the best bet is its independence on the platform. It’s something which comes handy when we talk about development and deployment. While some require IIS and others require Apache to run, MEAN Stack doesn’t require any specific configuration to be deployed on; any server of our choice and MEAN Stack would allow us to get it done.

This feature opens up an array of options and slashes the huge number of issues that one faces while going with other full-stack frameworks which is platform dependent.


MEAN Stack is a combination of highly flexible elements. It not only eases the whole project development but complexities involved. As MongoDB is open source and not like MySQL database that does not store data in specific rows and columns; in MongoDB, making changes when developing becomes easier and that too without disturbing the whole structure.

In MongoDB, adding field to the database doesn’t require reloading the entire table and it can handle a large amount of data as well. Expansion of resources available for the database is not too complex in MongoDB.

Open Source

MEAN Stack is being used by technologies which are open-source and freely available. With Open Source aspect of MEAN Stack, the teams involved in development get open access to the codes of each of the involved components; to edit and modify it to the precise needs and demands.

It allows getting more solutions and more innovative ideas to reach the solution. It not only saves the development time but allows getting feature rich, highly effective and quality end results.

One Language works it all

With development, developers always had a complexity to connect client and server end due to the different use of language, example LAMP uses PHP for back-end and for front-end it uses JavaScript. MEAN Stack resolves the issue by using JavaScript for everything. As everything is written in JavaScript only, one developer can switch back and forth.

In addition to this, there is no need for translation, because application and database both are using JavaScript. This makes the movement of objects between DB and back-end without any traction. In a simple sense, JavaScript works both on the client side and server side as well. MEAN Stack make transition simple and easy between client and server because Node.js as a web-server, application don’t require any other support like Apache to get deployed on the server.

Cost efficiency bundled with speed and scale

MEAN Stack provides all at once; efficiency, speed and scalability. All the credit goes to the components like Node.js which makes a crucial part of MEAN stack. Runtime environment Node.js doesn’t use blocking structure, making it fast and scalable. Unlike LAMP stack, in MEAN stack, client never requires directing a request for query creation. Node.js handles it all automatically.

Mean Stack also saves a lot of costs involved. As in MEAN Stack, JavaScript is the only language for back-end, front-end and database as well, it reduces the requirement of developers; a team of JavaScript developers can do full application development with MEAN Stack.

MEAN Stack is the first solution which allows a single team to do full application development reducing the cost to a great extent. Also, as MEAN Stack being open source reduces the cost of development and application deployment.

Support and backing

Matt Mullenweg a great developer and contributor of open-source developments said:

“If you think of the ideas of open source applied to information in an encyclopedia, you get to Wikipedia - lots and lots of small contributions that bubble up to something that's meaningful.”

That’s the beauty of open-source, one might not be able to get everything done, but definitely thousands and millions will be able to do so. MEAN Stack always prospered with the support not only from individuals but corporate entities as well. MEAN Stacks’ sponsors' credit have big and notable names.

The support community is so vast and large that it has all the grades of people having abundant experience in the technologies that make MEAN. If any of the developer working on MEAN stack needs support and extends its arm, there is always one from whom that developer will get the response from.

Conclusion :

The MEAN Stack definitely provides a better way to develop and implement blockchain. The end developed product being responsive and optimized in every aspect; whether the communication or effective API structuring.

It is the good news for blockchain business applications. All the above mentioned advantages of MEAN STACK are sure to empower your business with providing speed, uniformity, OS compatibility and so on. With MEAN STACK, businesses can rely on just one specialist developer with expertise on JavaScript unlike LAMP wherein PHP, MySql and JavaScript are required together. This means saving of disk space which can be used to power other resources. MEAN STACK can help you accelerate blockchain business work flow in a more compact module.

MEANSTACK framework can boost the Blockchain with its enriched features as its pros sidelines the bare minimum cons and certainly should be looked for.
