Publisher's Summary

Blockchain is a database that is truly on the cutting edge of technology. So much so that its true potential has not been discovered. Nevertheless, all types of analysts are already declaring that it is the most important technology since the Internet. If you are not already familiar with blockchain, these claims might sound excessive, but you'll learn why blockchain is likely to change the world in your lifetime. The following chapters will discuss the ins and outs of blockchain so you can move forward with a clear understanding of the technology and how to possibly put it to use in your business.

First, you will learn about the origins of blockchain and how it is tied to the history of cryptocurrency. Next, you will learn about the inner workings of blockchain and what makes it so useful as a decentralized database. From there you will learn why you might want to use blockchain for your database needs, as well as the reasons why it might not be right for you now.

Here is a preview of what you'll learn:

  • What is blockchain
  • How it works
  • Benefits of blockchain
  • Limitations of blockchain
  • Blockchain applications
  • The smart contract basics beyond blockchain
  • And much more

Glad it was short ...

Felt like I was listening to a high school public speaking student reading a college term paper to me and calling it a speech.

Educational and informative

It was able to hold my attention but if you aren't nerdy at all you'd probably be bored to death. There is nothing entertaining about this book!

This book was really interesting.

This book was really interesting. The author does a great job of breaking down some fairly technical information in to a format that is easily digestible. The author also does a great job of explaining how the technology that supports bitcoin ties in to the traditional banking industry. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to to learn more about Blockchain.

Nice Explanation.

An exceptionally fascinating book that spreads everything from the earliest starting point. I didn't realize that it had such a cool history. I read it mostly in light of the fact that I needed to figure out how to make a benefit from it and it covers that incredible. Blockchain is by all accounts the future and on account of this book I find out about it, and I will need to be a piece of this astonishing Blockchain Technology.

Awesome coverage of blockchain.

The book is a must listen book to understand and have ideas on all the promises of the blockchain technology and what is already being done today with it. I would say that this is very important because there is an individual like me who does not even know what do blockchain does and what is the purpose of it.
