Publisher's Summary

Blockchain and cryptocurrency mining has received a lot of attention in the past decade. Subsequently, it is, therefore, understandable that so many books, articles, and publishing have been released for public information in the past few years about the subject matter of “blockchain”. A major loophole in recent publications is that they haven’t specifically described the working process of blockchain in ways that a non-specialist can understand; this book, however, breaks down the working process of blockchain to details that anyone can understand. If you are interested in learning the intricate working processes of blockchain or you’re just looking to gather more general information, then this book is for you. Instead of searching through a plethora of books online without valuable information and getting yourself sunken into the vast abyss of nonsensical books that are sometimes too brief or too advance, this book breaks it down from the ground up. The technicality of crypto books might also cause you to lose interest totally, something which could be avoided if you found yourself a good book that discusses everything in a way that both beginners and experts can understand.

Many books on blockchain and cryptocurrency generally tend to be one sided, although some may be more detailed than the others.

The purpose of this book is to build a bridge between the more sophisticated books that are based on too much technicality about and the more novice-based books that only provide very little information. This breakdown also involves reduction of complex words and big terminologies to the minimum. Descriptions of terminologies were also defined objectively.

The essence of writing this book was to provide a basic understanding of the in-depth basis of blockchain creation and development that is required to understand the applications and functions of blockchain, to understand the implementation of blockchain in business and enterprise, to understand the financial and economic implementations as well. It will be difficult to grasp the full potential of blockchain implementations, functioning, and development without a full understanding of the basis and background information, and I believe that’s the sole purpose of your listening. Additionally, asides from blockchain and crypto mining, this book also aims to help you understand the basics and working processes of some famous coins out there like Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple coin, Libra (the new coin from Facebook), Monero, ZCash, EOS, Stellar, Tron, and NEO. You would also be getting the knowledge of centralization (which coin is centralized and which coin is decentralized). 

In order to understand a new technology, there are certain questions that we need to ask: We have to know what it is, what does it do, why do we need it, and what are its working processes.

Effective book

The block chain is a hot topic bouncing around these days from colleges and universities to main stream media and beyond. I am working on a new project that I believe lends itself to this technology but knew very little outside of Bitcoin and wanted learn the core basics.

Must have

The book is an easy read and provides a good overview of the blockchain tech industry. Great insight into the blockchain technology and what it might mean for businesses. Clearly shows that we're on the beginning part of the online revolution curve, not the middle or end.

Great book

This book goes into great detail on the major constructs and functionality of the Business Technology Development . It does not possess the hype or opinion that so often permeates this topic but instead offers clear and concise chapters discussing main points quite thoroughly.

Useful book.

This book will open your eyes to why Blockchain technology is so revolutionary, often making comparisons to the early days of the internet. I will be coming back to this book often over the years to remind myself of the days where Blockchain was in it's infancy.

Extremely please with it

The block chain has always been associated with crypto currency since bitcoin was the initial innovator. It's really a simple idea that can expand to include very complex innovations that reach well beyond business. The idea that the many can better do what the single can, even if the single is an expert.
