Publisher's Summary

Blockchain technology Is taking the world by storm!  

While you may not have heard much about blockchain technology yet, you can rest assured that certain key industries already have blockchain fever, and it's spreading.

Blockchain is directly responsible for the flurry of investment that surrounded bitcoin which saw a maximum price of over $20,000 at the end of 2017. 

2018 is going to be the year that blockchain comes out from the shadows in its own right. If you want to be on the cutting edge of the next big thing then this is the book you have been waiting for.

So what is blockchain?

A blockchain is a decentralized database that works as a distributed ledger. Its unique construction makes it extremely secure while allowing for a virtually unlimited number of users to interact with it at once. While this might not sound like all that much, the possibilities that this technology creates, especially in the financial sector, are virtually limitless. The secret here is that blockchains allow for strangers to conduct transactions with complete trust in the other party without the need for any type of middle man.

Blockchain is being called the most important new technology since the creation of the internet. 

As with any new technology, there will be plenty of new businesses taking advantage of it to rise to prominence, and with the information that you will hear, yours could easily be one of them. 

Inside you will learn:

  • The ins and outs of this powerful technology
  • How blockchain technology is reshaping the financial industry
  • Detailed technical guide to blockchain
  • How bockchain technology can be implemented in your company
  • Specific changes to expect blockchain technology to make to major industries
  • How blockchain is shaking the roots of certain industries
  • The future of blockchain in 2018 and beyond
  • And much more!

One of the best!

This book helped me with that. The author tries to be as less technical as possible and that worked out to my advantage.

I will suggest it.

Great book that provides both a good foundation on Blockchain (and what it could mean for business) and also an interesting vision of what will come in the next decade.

A good collection

" This book on cryptocurrency has very beneficial guidance for all. As a complete outsider about blockchain, I was able to get the basic understanding of blockchain technology after listening this book. Although it is only a brief introduction to the topic at some point the author also does deep into the technology and makes an easy explanation what could make the change. The book can be listen in one sitting. Good to have the first impressions of blockchain but nothing deep knowledge is involved."

BEST AUDIO BOOK

What a brief but concise summative of how blockchain technology really works. The programming languages used and the cryptography were brilliantly explained that even a struggling newbie would be able to grasp.
