Product description


David, a long-time expert in fintech, makes it easy for the average business executive to understand blockchain. He then shows us some of the exciting possibilities that could one day create trillion-dollar industries

Blockchain is already part of our everyday life. Its promise to reinvent the concept of trust and create optimal governance systems for the brave new data economy is ground-breaking. The distributed ledger's utility is to strengthen us as citizens and customers. David Shrier's Basic Blockchain is an essential tool for those looking to distinguish information from noise . . . It is a complete and reliable guide for policy makers, regulators and business leaders who need to make informed decisions beyond the hype

David has brought blockchain to life, driving insights into how to use it to promote transparency and efficiency. I found it helpful as I think through optimizing management of a $110 billion investment portfolio

Basic Blockchain is a must-read for anyone who wants to get an understanding of this emerging and disruptive technology. It is pitched at the busy executive or public service employee who knows that they should understand blockchain technology and its applications, but just hasn't been able to set aside the time to fully grasp it . . . It's a quick read that anyone can finish during the time it takes to fly from JFK to Bermuda. Well done, David

Blockchain could transform everything from financial services and currencies, how we process payments, insurance and medical records to government and the application of law. Shrier clearly illustrates the game-changing role blockchain could play in all kinds of everyday activities and businesses. Basic Blockchain is an excellent and visionary outlook of what a better future could look like

Book Description

One of MIT and Oxford's leading futurists explains what blockchain is, unpacks the cryptocurrency hype train, explores how blockchain will change the nature of your job, and shows you how blockchain will impact business and society
