All it takes is one person who is good at explaining things on a very basic and fundamental level, and that is where I excel. I have written this book with the extreme beginner in mind. Most introductory guides to Blockchain will begin their story in 2008, with the advent of Bitcoin. These accounts are quite accurate, but only paint half of the picture. The fundamental purpose of Blockchain technology and its uses goes back much further than 2008. In order to truly grasp Blockchain technology, we must reach back to the time before computers, paper currency, or even money itself. The answer to this question will take us on an adventure going back thousands of years, by first delving into the burning question of what money is, and from there, tracing it's trajectory throughout history to the development of Blockchain technology. This brief history of money is necessary to understand present-day effects of Blockchain applications, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, both of which will be introduced in this book. Some of the topics that you are going to learn about in this book include: Understanding Blockchain and what exactly it is What a distributed ledger is (Simplified!) Blockchain's Effect on Money and Banking Bitcoin and its relationship with Blockchain Ethereum and what makes it so great FinTech's Impact on business startups Where will Blockchain be in 20 years? The Impact that Blockchain technology is going to have on the world is inconceivable by people who are not well-informed on the topic.

Blockchain technology is powering our future. As the technology behind cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, open software platforms like Ethereum, and disruptive companies like Ripple, it’s too important to ignore. In this revelatory book, Don Tapscott, the bestselling author of Wikinomics, and his son, blockchain expert Alex Tapscott, bring us a brilliantly researched, highly readable, and essential book about the technology driving the future of the economy. Blockchain is the ingeniously simple, revolution­ary protocol that allows transactions to be simultaneously anonymous and secure by maintaining a tamperproof public ledger of value. Though it’s best known as the technology that drives bitcoin and other digital cur­rencies, it also has the potential to go far beyond currency, to record virtually everything of value to humankind, from birth and death certifi­cates to insurance claims, land titles, and even votes. Blockchain is also essential to understand if you’re an artist who wants to make a living off your art, a consumer who wants to know where that hamburger meat really came from, an immigrant who’s tired of paying big fees to send money home to your loved ones, or an entrepreneur looking for a new platform to build a business. And those examples are barely the tip of the iceberg. As with major paradigm shifts that preceded it, blockchain technology will create winners and losers. This book shines a light on where it can lead us in the next decade and beyond.

Blockchain In 2008, work began on one of the most ambitious and liberating software projects to date. Satoshi Yakamoto put forward a paper detailing something called a cryptocurrency and how digital currencies could be created and given to one another without a central authority in the middle keeping track of every transaction. These technologies, bitcoin and blockchain, have changed the face of the web - and the world - forever. This book is going to teach you all about blockchain and its potential to change the world. This technology, though new, is baffling experts and has people making bold, bold predictions about the future. Why? Because blockchain is changing the game. Things that were previously convoluted bureaucratic messes now have the potential to be clear as day. Unscrupulous or downright dirty banking practices no longer have to be a concern. Blockchain offers the people the power to control the destiny of whatever they want to do and removes the need for any other person or party in various different applications. Within this book, I'm going to tell you about blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and the massive impact of blockchain so far. After that, we're going to go through various scenarios and uses for blockchain and the myriad ways that this technology is changing everything and could completely alter the paradigm for pretty much everything that we know in our society - should we let it. By the end of this book, you're going to feel like you can tackle the topic of blockchain with ease as you go forward. You may invest in cryptocurrencies. or you may get to work on the next great application of the blockchain technology. You may join a blockchain or bitcoin community so that you can talk about this technology with other people who care about it. You may just go to sleep, satisfied with the fact that you know more about this technology that's taking society by storm. But one thing is absolutely for certain: you're going to understand blockchain, everything that it symbolizes, and the million beautiful things that it could be. FinTech Did you know we're in the middle of a revolution? No, not the post-election fervor. We're in the middle of the FinTech revolution, and it's a big one. Everything that we know about the world of finance is changing before us. Innovation is constantly happening. This book is going to help you get up to speed on all of the change that's happened and the things that are important right now. This book is going to teach you about several things, including: The financial technology sector (FinTech) and its impact on traditional banking, on the global economy, and on the world at large. Cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, blockchain technology, and why the two matter. (Pro-tip: They do. A lot.) Using robo-advisors to make sound investments. Peer-to-peer lending and the art of getting a good loan with a low interest rate without going through a bank. Crowdfunding projects to turn your idea into a beautiful reality. The state of FinTech and where it's headed. There are quite a few books out there on the topic, but there's one very simple reason that you should choose this one: I don't treat you like a kid, but I don't treat you like you've got a master's degree either. By the end of this book, I'll have taught you a lot of the important jargon in the world of FinTech, and you'll feel up-to-date and up-to-speed on everything there is to know about the current state of finance.

The definitive pioneering blueprint covering the what, why and how of the blockchain. Blockchains are new technology layers that rewire the Internet and threaten to side-step older legacy constructs and centrally served businesses. At its core, a blockchain injects trust into the network, cutting off some intermediaries from serving that function and creatively disrupting how they operate. Metaphorically, blockchains are the ultimate non-stop computers. Once launched, they never go down, and offer an incredible amount of resiliency, making them dependable and attractive for running a new generation of decentralized services and software applications. The Business Blockchain charts new territory in advancing our understanding of the blockchain by unpacking its elements like no other before. William Mougayar anticipates a future that consists of thousands, if not millions of blockchains that will enable not only frictionless value exchange, but also a new flow of value, redefining roles, relationships, power and governance. In this book, Mougayar makes two other strategic assertions. First, the blockchain has polymorphic characteristics; its application will result in a multiplicity of effects. Second, we shouldn’t ask ourselves what problems the blockchain solves, because that gives us a narrow view on its potential. Rather, we should imagine new opportunities, and tackle even more ambitious problems that cross organizational, regulatory and mental boundaries. Drawing on 34 years of technology industry experience as an executive, analyst, consultant, entrepreneur, startup mentor, author, blogger, educator, thought leader and investor, William Mougayar describes a future that is influenced by fundamental shifts brought by blockchain technology as the catalyst for change. William Mougayar has been described as the most sophisticated blockchain business thinker. He is a blockchain industry insider whose work has already shaped and influenced the understanding of blockchain for people around the world, via his generous blogging and rigorous research insights. He is a direct participant in the crypto-technology market, working alongside startups, entrepreneurs, pioneers, leaders, innovators, creators, enterprise executives and practitioners; in addition to being an investor, advisor, and board member in some of the leading organizations in this space, such as the Ethereum Foundation, OpenBazaar and Coin Center. Just as the Internet created new possibilities that we didn’t foresee in its early years, the blockchain will give rise to new business models and ideas that may still be invisible. Following an engaging Foreword by Vitalik Buterin, this book is organized along these 7 chapters: 1. What is the Blockchain? 2. How Blockchain Trust Infiltrates 3. Obstacles, Challenges & Mental Blocks 4. Blockchain in Financial Services 5. Lighthouse Industries & New Intermediaries 6. Implementing Blockchain Technology 7. Decentralization as the Way Forward The Business Blockchain is an invitation for technologists to better understand the business potential of the blockchain, and for business minded people to grasp the many facets of blockchain technology. This book teaches you how to think about the blockchain.
