Publisher's Summary

What the Internet did for communications, Blockchain will do for trusted transactions" - Ginni Rometty, IBM CEO

Cryptocurrency and its disruptive architecture, Blockchain, is now making the biggest revolution in the finance sector for the last 100 years.

There is a lot of hype surrounding the concept of the blockchain, but what does this term actually mean? What is Blockchain technology? Why does it matter?

These questions are not always answered with due diligence in the sea of headlines that deal with digital currencies using blockchains.

As a result, many people are left with an incomplete understanding of this transformative new technology and its massive implications for the future.

The goal of this book is not to plumb the depths of the mathematical wizardry used to code Blockchain-based applications, but rather to serve as an introduction to the broader architecture and conceptual background behind blockchain technology.

We will take a practical approach, examining how blockchains are used in the real world.

In this short, concise guide you will learn:

  • A brief history of Blockchain technology
  • Blockchain basics: managing digital transactions
  • What is a distributed ledger?
  • Blockchain beyond bitcoin
  • Implications of Blockchain: big data, privacy & personal data
  • Profiting from Blockchain technologies
  • Limitations & challenges of Blockchain
  • The future of Blockchain
