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!

Like this book.

The writer doesn't advise in this book how to put resources into cryptographic forms of money. On the off chance that you are searching for this information, take a gander at his different books. Be that as it may, here he told how blockchain can change our reality, take care of numerous issues and supplant numerous organizations. I extremely loved the book. It's an investigate what's to come.

Amazing book.

This book is an excellent beginner's guide to the up and coming technology of blockchain. Blockchain is the technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The transactions that use these digital currencies require the use of blockchain- a very secure form of coding- in order to make everything work. This book teaches you about the basics of blockchain and helps you to understand the fundamental terminology that is often used with it. There is a brief rundown of what it is and how it works. There are different aspects of the process that are discussed as well. I myself am an amateur when it comes to the knowledge of cryptocurrencies and the use of blockchain, but this book has helped me to gain a better understanding of the technology and how I can use it in my own life-whether in my business or to make a personal transaction. Overall, a great one for newbies.
